The use of a specialized optical microscope designed to provide a more three-dimensional view of a sample. Stereomicroscopy usually uses reflected light and provides enhanced depth perception via the use of two distinct optical paths. It takes advantage of the human ability to perceive depth by transmitting twin images separated by a small angle, mimicking the way light normally enters our two eyes and yielding a stereo effect. Often, stereomicroscopes provide lower magnifications, but have longer working distances than compound light microscopes.
