The Haag-Streit slit lamp family
Timeless quality in every detail
Since its introduction in 1958, the famous Goldmann slit lamp BM 900 has enjoyed remarkable popularity amongst our customers because of its excellent optics and impressive
longevity. As a result, there are well over 100,000 of these original Haag-Streit slit lamps in
daily use – including many from the first years of manufacturing.
Based on the knowledge and experience gained from this large user base, other slit lamps
have been introduced by Haag-Streit over the years and they all show the same high performance and, equally as important, durability and longevity as their famous predecessor.
Excellent optics
The quality of the optical system determines the results of
whatever application a slit lamp is used for. All Haag-Streit slit
lamps are equipped with elaborated microscopes, manufactured for highest quality requirements. The result is a superb
view, allowing accurate diagnostics, safe patient treatment
and stunning imaging results.
EXCELLENT OPTICS
Optimum illumination
The new LED illumination systems on our slit lamps deliver
our sharpest, brightest and most homogeneous slit ever. The
light spectrum has been specially designed for Haag-Streit
to meet the highest quality standards and to achieve results
that are even superior to those delivered by tungsten light.
This ensures optimal diagnostic details from the cornea to
the retina.
A tilting frame allows good posterior segment observation,
while the defocusing option enhances observation with indirect illumination. All filter and slit controls are conveniently
situated for ease of use and, as with the cross slide mechanism, have a silky smooth, effortless movement. The slit
mechanism is a masterpiece of engineering in itself, affording
faultless precision in both shape and movement.
OPTIMUM ILLUMINATION
Perfect mechanics
Since its foundation more than 150 years ago, Haag-Streit
has stood for high-precision mechanics. This experience,
combined with outstanding Swiss engineering and the use of
high grade materials, ensures perfect mechanics in all our slit
lamps, which can last for decades.
Perfection in design, materials and construction allow all
movements to be made smoothly and effortlessly without
any wrist or finger strain – and to continue doing so for the
very long lifetime of a Haag-Streit slit lamp.

08 | 09 WIDE RANGE OF ACCESSORIES
Slit lamp BQ 900
Fundus Module 300
This innovative accessory allows integration of non-mydriatic
retina imaging as part of the regular slit lamp examination.
This can improve practice workflow and save both clinical
and patient time.
Zoom objective
With the zoom objective, the magnification can be continuously changed from 6 up to 40 x. Reference points are set at
magnifications 10 x, 16 x and 25 x to allow easy orientation.
The zoom objective offers excellent diagnostic capabilities –
especially when used in conjunction with the video function.
Any existing BQ 900 can be modified from a standard model
to a BQ 900 – Zoom.

the examiner is able to maintain his head in a fatigue-free
position.
Stereo variator
Unique to the BQ 900, the stereo variator reduces the angle
of stereoscopic observation from 13° to 4.5°. This facilitates
the stereoscopic examination of the fundus, peripheral parts
of the retina and the vitreous, even under unfavourable conditions such as high myopia and small pupils. The reduction
of the angle enlarges the stereoscopic field of view under
the described conditions, maintaining depth information in
the stereoscopic observation.
Contrast enhancing filter
This yellow barrier filter provides additional contrast to fluorescein images. It can be mounted permanently on the slit
lamp and easily inserted or removed as required.
Beam splitter
The beam splitter diverts a portion of the light to secondary attachments such as the second observer tube, video
or digital cameras. Beam splitters are available in different
versions. The beam splitter for cameras diverts 70% of the
light to the secondary attachment, the one for co-observation under equal conditions diverts only 50% of the light.
Video or digital cameras can be connected to the beam splitter
with a range of C-mount adaptors, which offer different focal
lengths for variable sensor sizes. There are also two versions
of second observer tubes available: One short version for coobserving in sitting and a long version for co-observing in upright position.
