Tips for Using the Ophthalmoscope Darken the room and have the patient look off in the distance. Switch the ophthalmoscope light and turn the lens disc to the large round beam of white light. Turn lens disc to the 0 diopter.

Tips (continued) Hold the ophthalmoscope in your right hand to examine the patient’s right eye and in your left hand to examine the patient’s left eye. Stand directly in front of the patient, 15 inches away and start at an angle of 15 degrees lateral to the patient’s line of vision. Shine the beam of light onto the pupil and look for an orange glow – this is the red reflex. Follow the red reflex and move inward towards the nasal aspect of the visual field.
