Contact Lenses

  • Chapter

Abstract

As long as the ideal ophthalmoscope-microscope remains to be designed, the vitreoretinal microsurgeon will need a series of contact lenses for observing the vitreous body and the retina during surgery. There is not a single contact lens that fulfills all requirements for vitreoretinal microsurgery; and therefore, the vitreoretinal microsurgeon should have a series of different contact lenses available at all times. Each of them will be used by the surgeon according to the specific technique that is to be carried out.
