Ophthalmoscope Bulbs

20th Jan 2015

Introduced in the 1850s, the Ophthalmoscope is a instrument of the optometrist. It was the first proper device to be discovered for examining the interior of the human eye. In 1851 Hermann von Helmholtz first made a discovery of the Ophthalmoscope. He called it an Augenspiegel (eye mirror). The actual name Ophthalmoscope (eye observer) did not come into common practice until three years later – in 1854.

Ophthalmoscope Bulbs are an essential element in Optical Lamps used by health professionals. At Medlamps we ensure we stock a range of Ophthalmoscope Bulbs brands, including Keeler, Heine, Riester and Welch Allyn. A Ophthalmoscope Bulb allows a health professional to view inside the back of an eye (called the fundus).

Elements To The Ophthalmoscope

The use of the Ophthalmoscope Bulbs grew rapidly. There were three essential elements in its construction:

  • A source of illumination
  • A method of reflecting the light into the eye
  • An optical means of correcting an unsharp image of the fundus

Which Ophthalmoscope Bulbs Do I Need?

When choosing a Ophthalmoscope Bulb for your instrument, ensure it works correctly and is compatible with your Ophthalmoscope. Different lights have different colour temperatures and lux (light intensity ratings) so be sure these work well with the rest of your equipment.
