Slit lamps are ophthalmic instruments, like a microscope, consisting of a high-intensity source of light that can be used for examining the interior of the eye. Slit lamps allow the facilitation of the examination of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye which includes parts such as conjunctiva, lens, iris, sclera, cornea, eyelids, optic nerve, and the retina. Slit lamps enable the diagnosis of several eye disorders such as the detached retina, cataracts, injuries to the cornea, macular degeneration, blockages of the retinal vessel and obstructions in the eye’s blood vessels.

Slit lamp examinations are often carried out along with regular eye examinations and the examination proceeds from the front of the eye to the back of the eye. Slit lamp examinations also help in understanding the impact of diseases such as anemia, diabetes, hypertension, tumors, blood clots, and the hardening of the arteries on the health of the eye. These trends are expected to contribute positively to the growth of the global slit lamps market.
