Founded more than 160 years ago, Haag-Streit has grown into a respected international medical technology group. A tradition of Swiss precision manufacturing and a drive for innovation creates a climate of confidence in Haag-Streit instruments and Haag-Streit diagnostics. Whether it is a Lenstar Biometer, Octopus Perimeter or 900 Slit Lamp, you can expect faultless and efficient operation leading to assured diagnosis. The Haag-Streit ophthalmic instruments consist of modular systems which can be updated at any time to conform with the latest state-of-the-art requirements. The equipment is of classic design, robust and of lasting value.

Haag-Streit Slit Lamps

In 1959, Haag-Streit launched the BM900 slit lamp. The BM900 was a dramatic improvement in slit lamp design, usage and functionality. Today, over 60 years later, there are over 100,000 BM900 slit lamps in daily use – including many from the original year of manufacture. Based on the knowledge and experience gained from this large user base, other slit lamps have been introduced by Haag-Streit diagnostics over the years and these show the same high performance and, equally as important, the durability and longevity of their famous predecessor.

Haag-Streit slit lamps are now standard with LED illumination, and most are available with digital imaging modules and data management software. Current production includes:

  • BI900 – Superior examination, contact lens fitting and imaging capability
  • BM900 – The enduring classic slit lamp
  • BP900 – Progressive functionality and imaging capability
  • BQ900 – Top-of-the-line slit lamp with optional attachments for maximum versatility
  • BX900 – Superior technology for the professional photographer
