Portable slit lamps have come a long way in the last few years. They are not manufactured anymore from low-quality plastic and lens.
Now you will find a refined, durable, and high-quality lens in their place with options of LED illumination or even full-color screens.
Illumination control and slit width are standard, and they weigh almost nothing. Perfect for applications in remote areas or bed patients and children.
Here we examine 3 options you should consider for your next hand-held slit lamp.
