Interesting question. I suppose someone or some company e.g. Zeiss thought it would be a practical idea to add two eyepieces. There are many more important innovations that this though, the optics, lens and knowledge of light and the eye have all helped to drive progress in the world of microscopy.

The science of investigating small objects using such an instrument is called Microscopy. Microscopic means invisible to the eye unless aided by a microscope. There are many types of microscopes. The most common (and the first to be invented) is the optical microscope, which uses light to image the sample. Other major ...

Light or optical microscopy is the primary means for scientists and engineers to examine the microstructure of materials. The history of using a light micro- scope for microstructural examination of materials can be traced back to the. 1880s. Since then, light microscopy has been widely used by metallurgists to examine ...

It is not quite certain who invented the microscope. Probably, spectacle makers in Middelburg, The Netherlands, invented both the compound microscope and the refracting telescope, between 1590 and 1610. The names most mentioned are those of Hans and Zacharias Janssen. The first well known users were van ...
