The gold standard
Tried and tested during more than 50 years of usage with millions of patients the Goldmann applanation tonometer is the gold standard for fast and reproducible IOP measurement.
Two instruments - one gold standard

Thanks to the high precision of manufacturing at Haag-Streit, the Goldmann applanation tonometer offers reliable performance over many years without the need for manufacturer maintenance.
Which tonometer with which slit lamp
Depending of the slit lamp, the Haag-Streit Goldmann applanation tonometers have different ways of how they are mounted.
Type BQ / BP
The Applanation Tonometer type BQ / BP fits the Haag-Streit slit lamps BQ 900 and
BP 900. It provides a parking position and can be easily placed into working position. The applanated surface is observed monocularly through the right eyepiece of the stereo microscope.
The applanation tonometer type R fits the BI 900, BM 900 and BD 900 as well as many 3rd party slit lamps.It can be left on the slit lamp permanently. It is fastened to the microscope on a mounting base and swivelled in front of the microscope for the examination. The observation of the applanated surface is conducted monocularly – only through the left eyepiece.
The Applanation Tonometer type T fits the Haag-Streit slit lamps BQ 900, BP 900, BM 900 and BI 900. It is set on a guide plate over the slit lamp axis. The instrument can be moved between two positions on the guide plate for observation through the right or left eyepiece. The tonometer is placed on the slit lamp only when applanation tonometry is performed.
