Difference between a conventional/regular laryngoscope and a fiber optic laryngoscope?

The big difference is the focus. With a regular bulb, the light is reflected back through the filament, which creates a shadow where you need the most light. Ever play with a flashlight in the dark as a kid? Remember the shadow in the middle of the light? Fiberoptics focus the light where you need it.

Standard blades have a small bulb near the distal end of each blade. The handle only contains the electricity (batteries). At the blade connection the handle has a contact point to transmit the energy, through the conducting wire in the blade & into the bulb. A Fiberoptic handle has the bulb in the handle. Then the light (photons) from the bulb are transmitted through a bundle of glass strands compressed in a metal tube.
