fundus biomicroscopy

biomicroscopy, fundus 

Observation of the fundus of the eye with a biomicroscope. It requires an additional, usually hand-held, lens (+90 D, +78 D, +60 D, etc.) placed between the patient's eye (with the pupil usually dilated) and the slit-lamp, which is adjusted to be coaxial with the eye. This method provides a real, inverted and reversed stereoscopic view of the fundus. See illumination; gonioscopic lens; Hruby lens; slit-lamp.

All patients underwent fundus biomicroscopy with slit lamp and digital color fundus photographs.
The ETDRS classification has been established as a reference by comparing FA findings to fundus photographs [26], and studies have subsequently demonstrated better performance of mydriatic color fundus photographs by comparison to the fundus biomicroscopy for the screening of DR [5, 6, 37].
Ultrasound B-scan and dilated fundus biomicroscopy demonstrated no signs of posterior scleritis.
Fundus biomicroscopy lenses are probably the most important tool that the majority of optometrists have at their disposal to screen and diagnose posterior eye pathology.
All patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination, including measurement of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) using standard Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) charts, slit lamp examination of the anterior segment, and fundus biomicroscopy. Colour fundus photographs were obtained using a high-resolution digital retinal camera (Topcon TRX-50 retinal camera; Tokyo, Japan).
Otherwise use the slit-lamp biomicroscope and direct illumination through a dilated pupil to view the anterior vitreous and fundus biomicroscopy to view the posterior vitreous.
