Eye under a microscope: insects’ photo
Human eye under a microscope is a whole universe of colors and complicated structures. The higher the microscope magnification, the more small details you can see. However, it is almost impossible to get such a specimen for an amateur biologist to study. Prepared sets of slides usually include nerve and muscle fibers, human skin, and human hair – but not eyes. For example, Levenhuk N80 NG "See it all" Slides Set includes 19 prepared specimens of human organs, but even in this set you will not find such a rare specimen.
Let’s unravel a mystery: you can study an eye under a microscope. Insects’ and arachnids’ eyes are also interesting objects to explore. It is not difficult to catch a fly, mosquito or a spider. A few minutes – and you will see a whole universe in the objective lens of a microscope. It is interesting that insects and arachnids have different eye structures. Flies have compound eyes, while spiders’ eyes look like large glossy beads.
You can observe insects and arachnids at 50x-100x magnification, but you can get a more detailed image using optics with 800x or 1000x magnification. You can take photos of their eyes with a digital microscope, for example, the one of an ant eye under a microscope – you can see the photo above.
We recommend that you acquire a modern digital or optical microscope for studying the micro world. You will be able to explore all popular areas in the amateur research field. You can examine life in a water drop, study prepared microscope slides, and perform scientific experiments at home. Contact us and we will help you find an ideal optical tool that will perform all these tasks.
