The operating microscope is a fixture of modern surgical facilities, and it is critically important for the success of several complex surgical interventions that are used today. First used in neurosurgical procedures, surgical microscopes are now heavily utilized in the surgical practices of ophthalmology, otolaryngology, plastic and reconstructive medicine, dentistry, gynecology, oncology, urology, etc. The purpose of a surgical microscope is to improve the surgeon’s view and also improve the usual components of microscopy, magnification, resolution, and illumination. Modern surgical microscopes can be placed on a stand, table or even worn by the surgeon. These microscopes can also be mounted on the ceiling or a wall to conserve floor space in the surgical suite.
