Microscopes play a crucial role in medical research. The invention of microscopes opened up a new dimension of science. In a broad aspect, scientists were able to study microorganisms and see objects that were once too small for the human eye.

In the surgical field, microscopes revolutionized how operations were done. Surgeries required less incisions, and there was more precision for microsurgery. Design features include magnification in the range of 4x-40x, and components that are easy to sterilize and/or disinfect. There may also be foot controls for tilt, focus, and zoom. Typically, an operating microscope may cost several thousand dollars for a base model. Other, more specialized versions may be more expensive. 

Procedures that often involve operating microscopes include endodontic treatments, spine surgeries, plastic surgery, and ophthalmic surgeries. Practitioners use dental microscopes for endodontic procedures because of their usefulness. During root canal therapy, magnification and illumination aids with the cavity removal and identification of root orifices. Under the microscope, dentin color and texture become apparent, whereas with the naked human eye there is no clear differentiation. A big advantage of a camera system is that images can be transmitted to monitors so assistants, and surgical staff can also see the display.
