Bausch and Lomb Slit Lamp


The slit lamp is a key test in identifying glaucoma, cataracts, corneal infections, and allergies of the eye. The patient stares straight ahead while the provider adjusts the brightness and thickness of the light to examine different layers and parts of the eye. Typically, the patient’s eyes are dilated prior to the test to allow the provider to examine the retina and optic nerve.
