Explanation:
Hola,

Te mando un enlace con una foto abajo y otra en que explica lo que es el examen con lámpara de hendidura:

"Definition
The slit-lamp examination looks at structures that are at the front of the eye (the anterior segment): The eyelid, the sclera (whites outer structure of the eye), conjunctiva (membranes lining the eyelid and sclera srface), iris (colored part of the eye), natural crystalline lens, and the cornea (thin transparent membrane that covers the iris and the lens). The slit-lamp is an instrument used with a high-intensity light source that can be focused to shine as a slit. It is used with the biomicroscope (an optical instrument that is like a microscope with two eyepieces).
How the test is performed Return to top

While you are seated in the examing chair, the instrument is placed in front of you and you rest your chin and forehead on a support to keep your head steady. Your eyes are then examined through the biomicroscope. A fine strip of paper that is stained with an orange colored dye (fluorescein) may be touched to the side of your eye. The dye stains the tear film on the surface of the eye to help with the examination. The dye rinses out of the eye with tears. After this examination, drops may be placed in your eyes to dilate the pupils. The drops take about 15 to 20 minutes to work. The examination is then repeated, allowing the back of the eye to be examined.
