Slitlamp Examination

The slit lamp exam is usually performed during eye checkups. It looks for any diseases or abnormalities in the anterior portion of the eye, which includes the eyelids, lashes, lens, conjunctiva, cornea, and iris.
Eye dropw will be administered and the technician and the doctor will use a low-powered microscope and a high-intensity light to look closely at your eyes. The light focuses into a single intense beam that shows the eye structures in great detail.
