This is one of the very few Slit lamps to be found in Uganda. When you have an eye checkup, you will likely undergo a slit lamp exam. You will usually have the slit lamp exam at an optometry or ophthalmology office. The exam is also called biomicroscopy. It allows the doctor to microscopically examine your eyes for any abnormalities or problems. We also have a set of opthalmic lenses and opthalmascope. We are working on supplying more equipment
