My mom bought this: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMy-First-Lab-Duo-Scope-Microscope%2Fdp%2FB000NOU54O" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/My-First-Lab-D.../dp/B000NOU54O</a> for my 9yo. We set it up this morning, reading all the instructions, and the light that you turn on underneath is so bright that you can't even look through the eyepiece without hurting your eyes, and you certainly can't see anything on the slide.<br><br>
Are we missing something? Help!

Having used many microscopes in my line of work....I can say that all have a light adjuster. Check to make sure that you can't turn the knob to make it a bit dimmer.

can a lower wattage bulb be switched to a less intense one? Have you tried putting a slide on it to see if it works with something to focus on?<br>
I have found most microscopes I have used have had the reverse prob <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
