Stereoscopic Microscope is a binocular microscope designed to obtain a three-dimensional view of the specimen. It is also known as stereo microscope which is referred to as dissecting microscope. The instrument is particularly useful in many fields such as health, medical, biology, education, government services, research and policing amongst the others.
Its in-built feature makes it a much sought-after device in the aforementioned fields. The design of a stereoscopic microscope has two eyepieces that enable a researcher or an observer to use both the eyes simultaneously. The use of two eyepieces makes the object more three dimensional in nature providing the enhancement of 3D depth perception.
