Summary | Back of the eye mirror


The ophthalmoscopy plays a very central role, especially, but not only, in ophthalmology. There are two examination methods available to the doctor: direct ophthalmoscopy, which provides a high magnification but a poor overview, and indirect ophthalmoscopy, which provides a good overview of the retina but does not show any details and only gives an inverted image. The ophthalmoscopy is used so frequently because it can be performed with relatively little effort and secondly, characteristic findings allow us to quickly draw conclusions about various diseases or symptoms.
