Ophthalmoscope with bulb and battery handle, originally owned by Dr. Pringle (?), English (?) 1880-1930
Physicians and specialised ophthalmologists use ophthalmoscopes to look into the eye. They examine the retina and the inside of the eye. A beam of light is directed into the eye from the bulb. The bulb is powered by a battery contained in the handle. The ophthalmologist looks through a single eyepiece. The ophthalmoscope has a rotating disc of lenses allowing the eye to be examined at different depths and magnifications. This example was owned by a Dr Pringle.
