The filter is occasionally used on its own to aid in the diagnosis of keratoconus. A frequent finding in this corneal ectasia is Fleischer’s ring, which is formed by an annular iron deposition within the stroma at the base of the cone. The iron pigment is often difficult to see in white light but will usually appear in greater contrast when viewed through the cobalt blue filter. 3 It significantly enhances the contrast of any fluorescent staining observed with the cobalt blue filter as it allows transmission of the green, fluorescent light but blocks the blue light reflected from the corneal surface.

Contact Lens Practice. 2nd ed. ) Anterior eye examination Focal illumination – parallelepiped This describes any illumination technique where the slit beam and viewing system are focused co-incidentally. The illumination is turned up to a reasonably high level of brightness (ensuring that the patient remains comfortable) and the slit beam is placed at a separation of 40–60° on the side of the microscope corresponding to the section of the cornea to be viewed.

5 Observation system of a slit lamp biomicroscope. 3 Chapter 1 Part I: Examination and Grading For the purposes of discussion throughout this book, the level of magnification being used can be broadly classified as follows: • low: < ×10 magnification. • medium: ×10 – ×25 magnification. • high: > ×25 magnification. A C In most systems, magnification consists of changes in steps, with the typical progression being ×6, ×10, ×16, ×25 and ×40; these systems generally afford high optical quality but there is the disadvantage of momentarily losing sight of the eye while the magnification is being changed.
