Ergo Adapter

  • Adapter inserts between microscope binocular head and optics carrier
  • Simple locking knob adjusts microscope height
  • Height adjustment range of +3/4" to +5 inches
  • Can rotate 180º for left-or right-handed operation
  • Optical and mechanical alignments constant at any position or inclination angle
  • When work surfaces are set at elbow height to facilitate hand operations, the ErgoAdapter allows users to set the microscope's eyepiece height to achieve a good ergonomic neutral posture. Adjustability eliminates raised shoulders and bent necks, which can cause discomfort.

Extended Eyetube Binocular

  • 90MM extension
  • Available as a new item or as a retrofit of existing binocular head (depending on the binocular model)
  • Can be combined with the ErgoAdapter and an Optical Wedge for greatly enhanced workstation flexibility
  • Extended Eyetube Binocular is an ergonomic device for use with quality stereomicroscopes. Its longer-than-standard eyetube length enables the microscope user to comfortably move back from the workstation, helping to relieve postural fatigue. Ideal for most microscopes, especially those used with machines, bonders, heated stages, solder stations, under hoods or anywhere operators are otherwise forced into a cramped viewing posture.

Retrofit Kit:

Optical Wedge

  • Easily installed with self-aligning flanges
  • Offers a 0º or 90º in-line viewing angle
  • Maintains parfocality and optical alignments at any inclination angle
  • Adds new flexibility to microscope workstations.
  • 0º/90º Optical Wedge is positioned between the binocular head and the optics carrier.
  • It complements existing 45º binoculars, providing two additional viewing angles.
  • Costs less than half of a straight tube binocular and offers three times the flexibility.
Bay Optical



  • ISIS eyepieces allow you to work with your existing microscope, but more efficiently and accurately, with greater comfort and reduced fatigue, despite prolonged periods of use.
