This video clearly explains the basic maintenance of the Slit lamp.
The Maintenance of the slit lamp consists of three assemblies’ namely base assembly, Illumination column assembly and Optics assembly.
We can check the focusing distance using the testing rod provided along with the slit lamp. This will help us to know whether the working distance is perfect in the slit lamp.
The input electrical supply to the equipment is another crucial factor that must be examined for the slit lamp to operate at its best. It is strongly advised to connect the stabilizer to the main supply in case the input power fluctuates, and the slit lamp supply must be drawn from the stabilizer.
When not in use, the apparatus must be kept covered with a dust cover to keep dust from getting into the mechanical and optical parts of the apparatus and to improve apparatus’s effectiveness. When not in use, place silica gel close to the optics and keep them covered if the environment where the equipment is used has a higher humidity level; this will help prevent fungal growth in the optics.
