    The slit lamp is an ophthalmic equipment used to examine the structures of the eye. It consists of a binocular microscope equipped with a light source that creates a thin, focused beam of light. This beam is split into a slit shape and projected onto the eye, allowing the medical professional to view the various parts of the eye in detail.
