Bausch & Lomb Simple
Monocular Dissecting Microscope

Bausch & Lomb, of Rochester New York, introduced this simple monocular dissecting microscope in 1903. The original model, from which our 3-D Studio Max drawing is derived, resides in the Billings Microscope Collection at the National Museum of Health and Medicine at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D. C.

The instrument is supported by a sturdy brass horseshoe-shaped base that secures a four-inch tubular pillar upon which the stage and eyepiece (ocular) are mounted. A swinging arm that houses the ocular is attached to the top of the pillar. The stage plate is four and a half inches square and has a glass specimen plate of the same size. The substage double mirror is attached to the pillar via a swinging tailpiece. Focus is achieved with a triangular bar through a rack and pinion gear mechanism that moves the stage up and down on the pillar.
