Benefits of the MicroscopeMicroscopes allow us to see things which are too small for the naked eye to see. Nearly all diseases are caused by microscopic life forms, such as bacteria. Many important parts of the body are too small to see, also, such as individual cells. Medicine did not really become an advanced science until the microscope allowed researchers to discover a whole universe no one knew existed, and which many people refused to believe in for years afterward.

What have microscopes discovered?

Microscopes have helped discover everything that is too small to see with your eyes. Conventional microscopes like the ones you would use in schools to look at cells with helped us to discover.cells. They also help scientists to see smaller components of larger objects.
