The word "monocular" comes from the Latin word "monoculus", which literally means "having one eye". A monocular microscope therefore has a single eyepiece for observing specimens.
Monocular microscope is the most popular type of microscope. These microscopes are used for observing in transmitted light using the bright field method. Despite a little discomfort that appears during lengthy observations, monocular microscopes are still used by a lot of amateur and professional observers because they are highly affordable. Medical laboratories and, more often, school laboratories are usually equipped with these microscopes. In this section you can find a wide range of high-quality monocular microscopes starting with the simplest models for amateurs and hobbyists, and ending with advanced laboratory devices.
