During this period, the factory also launched 135 film slit lamp. Because the film washing technology can not be mastered in ophthalmology and even in the hospital, its film time is seriously lagging behind, which restricts the development of film slit lamp. Only a few applications in ophthalmology research and thesis compilation. In clinical practice, people have been using the eye inspection and handwriting examination mode.

With the rapid development of market economy, the manufacturers of slit lamps sprung up in the last century in 90s, and the market competition became more and more intense. With the rapid development of computer technology and digital imaging technology, a new type of slit lamp pattern has been renovated. Among them, the application of digital cameras is highly praised.
