The high magnification in medical microscope ensures visibility of the smallest component in blood and helps in identifying parasites and bacteria. To get high magnification, medical grade microscope uses top grade objective lenses. Most of these microscopes use fine quality Plan objectives that provide a flat field of view minus optical distortion as seen through straight achromatic objectives.
