Abstract
Lenses and mirrors have always been an integral part of an ophthalmologist’s armamentarium. Since time immemorial curious minds have been trying to peep inside the eye using various techniques, be it indentation of the limbus and using direct ophthalmoscope as done by Trantas1 or using contact lenses meant for correction of keratoconus, as done by Salzmann2 for viewing the anterior chamber angle. With the invention of slit lamp, microscopes and various lenses / mirrors which are much easier to handle, visualization of ocular structures have become quite easy. In glaucoma, these lenses/mirrors have come in handy for the diagnosis as well as the treatment of various conditions such as diagnosis of angle closure, performing peripheral iridotomy, laser trabeculoplasty and laser suterolysis, to name a few.
