Bausch & Lomb Co. began as makers of optician's instruments in 1853. After expanding into microscopes and at the company's height, it was the third largest microscope provider worldwide.

  Circa 1905-1910, this incredibly scarce corneal surface microscope proves an incredibly unique find. The Binocular Microscope with Stand for Corneal Surfacing examination was first invented in 1898 by Seigfried Czapski. Used by optician's to examine different areas of the eye to provide accurate diagnosis, this device provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye (both posterior and anterior) with the use of a movable outside light source.  

Inundated by the 1911 invention of the Slit Lamp (combining the light source within the corneal microscope), which incorporated this inceptive technology and left few primitive models remaining.
