• A fiber optic sleeve that fits over a Goldmann three-mirror lens, as well as an independent cable used in conjunction with the Goldmann lens, are described for transillumination biomicroscopical examination of the anterior chamber angle and the uvea. High-intensity retroillumination is provided to the anterior and posterior segments of the globe without production of heat to the eye. Present clinical uses as well as possible future research with the instruments are discussed.
