Adjusting The Slit-Lamp Oculars: An Unnecessary Burden Or A Must?

Blumenthal EZ. Surv Ophthalmol. 1995 Nov-Dec;40(3):225-8. Department of Opthalmology, Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. ABSTRACT: Adjusting the slit-lamp eyepiece rings is perceived by some to be insignificant for achieving adequate focus. Others assume that these rings should be set only to compensate for one’s refractive error. Observations are presented concerning the eyepiece scale setting during …

On Focusing The Slit-Lamp: Part I. An Inaccurate Ocular Setting–What Is There To Lose?

Blumenthal EZ, Serpetopoulos CN. Surv Ophthalmol. 1998 Jan-Feb;42(4):351-4. Department of Ophthalmology, Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. ABSTRACT: Adjustments of the diopter rings on the slit-lamp oculars compensate for three independent factors: the observer’s refractive error, the observer’s state of accommodation, and any instrument misalignment. An inaccurate setting of these rings will significantly affect the slit-lamp …

On Focusing The Slit-Lamp: Part II. “The Fading-Slit Test” Verifying The Ocular Setting

Blumenthal EZ, Serpetopoulos CN Surv Ophthalmol. 1998 Jan-Feb;42(4):355-7. Department of Ophthalmology, Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. ABSTRACT The focusing-rod test is considered the gold standard for determining the correct setting of the slit-lamp ocular rings. This method is, however, somewhat time-consuming, considering the time it often takes to locate a rod every time one switches …
