The Haag-Streit UK events calendar

HS-UK Slit Lamp Imaging Courses

Radisson Blu Hotel, Bristol & Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Manchester
15.08.2017 - 17.08.2017

Haag-Streit UK is excited to announce dates for two new Slit Lamp Imaging Courses. These exclusive CPD courses will be held on 15th August 2017 at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Bristol and on 17th August 2017 at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Manchester.

The aim of these courses is to provide attendees with a detailed overview of this highly-skilled ophthalmic imaging discipline. The day will include lectures and demonstrations delivered by a faculty of highly-skilled slit lamp imaging specialists.

The agenda will cover a wide range of topics, including the history of the slit lamp and a step-by-step guide to basic eye examination. It will also include the various techniques required for anterior imaging, including; diffuse, focal and indirect illumination and retinal imaging using retro illumination.

There will also be hands-on workshop sessions, giving attendees the opportunity to examine live subjects using state-of-the-art imaging devices, including Haag-Streit’s BX 900. Often referred to as ‘the photographers slit lamp’, the BX 900 combines the latest imaging technology with versatility, optical brilliance and exceptional Haag-Streit mechanical quality.

Attendees will be able to claim 7.5 CPD points. Click here to see the full agenda for the Slit Lamp Imaging Course.

HS-UK offer an enhanced LED illumination system for older slit lamps

15th June 2017 - HS-UK is offering the opportunity to enhance older Haag-Streit slit lamps, by converting them to utilise a 14mm LED illumination system.

Slit lamps in routine clinical practice primarily use tungsten illumination.  This can be problematic when the bulb needs to be replaced as it can lead to equipment down-time and the frequency of bulb replacements in demanding clinics can be costly.  LED illumination is energy-efficient, reduces the necessity to replace bulbs and has the added benefit of providing improved illumination of the anterior segment for clinical diagnosis.

Modern slit lamps now have LED illumination as standard, but the LED conversion can be performed on older BQ 900, BP 900, BM 900 and BX 900 Haag-Streit slit lamps. The BQ 900 can now also be upgraded at the same time to project a 14mm slit, opposed to the standard 8mm.

Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, said, “Converting a slit lamp to LED can benefit the user in a variety of ways.  LED will reduce the energy consumption by up to 60% and will last up to 150 times longer than a tungsten bulb.  It also significantly improves the illumination and in conjunction with Haag-Streit imaging products, provides significantly improved clinical diagnostic capabilities.”

An LED enhancement is quick and simple to perform, with very little downtime.  The process can be performed by a trained HS-UK Service Engineer, at the customer’s premises, in just a few short hours.
