A compound microscope is an optical device that combines an objective lens and ocular eyepiece to achieve much higher magnification than other microscope varieties. The objective lens has a short focal length, higher magnifications and requires close placement to the object, whilst the eyepiece offers a longer focal length and lower magnifications which can further project a detailed image of the sample or specimin into the retina of the eye.
Compound microscopes are suitable for science laboratories and medical research facilities and are used for measuring samples in higher levels of magnification than a stereo or other low-powered microscopes.
