Lenses of optimum magnification is utilized in the eye piece of Synoptophore. Picture slides are placed in the slide carrier at tube end of the Synoptophore device. The stimulation of eyes is performed simultaneously and alternately by automatic flashing unit in Synoptophore, the provision for manual stimulation is also provided as standard.
