Surgical microscopes are optical systems specifically designed for the Operating Room, and are the primary instruments used in microsurgeries. These models are typically equipped with a light source that provides the right illumination to produce true tissue color, and most are built with a prism that splits the light beam to provide additional visual output. Magnification capabilities of surgical microscopes vary, and different surgical applications differ in requirement on levels of image enlargement. Medical fields that make significant use of operating microscopes include plastic surgery, ENT surgery, ophthalmic surgery, orthopedic surgery, and neurosurgery.
