slit·lamp

, slit lamp (slit'lamp)
ophthalmology An instrument consisting of a microscope combined with a rectangular light source that can be narrowed into a slit for examination of the eye.
Synonym(s): biomicroscope, Gullstrand slitlamp.

biomicroscope 

1. An instrument designed for detailed examination of ocular tissues containing a magnifying system and usually used in conjunction with a slit-lamp. Biomicroscopy can be used to examine both the anterior segment using various illumination techniques and the posterior segment of the eye.
2. Term commonly used to describe a slit-lamp (although this is not strictly correct).

Patients having retinal detachment, tractional or rhegmatogenous, vitreous haemorrhage and macular surface disorders (assessed with slit lamp biomicroscope and funds condensing lenses, IOP was measured with AT and fluorescein) were included.
Pathological changes were investigated using a biomicroscope (B5-223IEP, Motic China Group Co., Ltd., China) coupled with an Advanced 3.2 Image Analysis System (Motic China Group Co., LTD., China).

Anterior segment of the eye was examined to detect lid oedema, conjunctival pallor and subconjunctival haemorrhage with torch light and slit lamp biomicroscope.
This included visual acuity, anterior segment examination with slit lamp biomicroscope, and intraocular pressure (IOP) checked with Goldmann Applanation Tonometer.
The best-corrected distance visual acuity was measured according to the coding instructions for the WHO/PBL eye examination record.[1] The ophthalmologists conducted comprehensive examinations of the eyelid, conjunctiva, cornea, anterior chamber, iris, pupil reflex, and lens using a slit-lamp biomicroscope (model YZ5F1, 66 Vision Tech Co., Ltd., China).
C4 seemed to fit the diagnosis of (ocular) albinism but, even on careful viewing with the biomicroscope, there was no evidence of nystagmus, which is expected in this condition.
Best corrected visual acuities were measured, detailed anterior segment examination was performed with a slit-lamp biomicroscope, intraocular pressure measurement using Goldman applanation tonometry, ocular motility evaluation and optic nerve and retinal examination with a 90 dioptric lens.
The borders of the area to be excised were mapped onto the cornea preoperatively under the biomicroscope light using a 27-gauge needle.
Eyelids should be carefully examined under a biomicroscope independently of pruritus, hyperemia, and irritation.
