The dependable Reliance SL3 by Haag-Streit

The Reliance SL3 slit lamp has been developed in collaboration between Haag-Streit and a partner with decades of experience in slit lamp development and manufacturing, and has been specifically designed to meet the expectations and demands of optometrists* 

This slit lamp has been thoroughly evaluated by Haag-Streit and genuine Haag-Streit optical elements have been introduced in the imaging chain.

*For a more advanced slit lamp, please consider the Haag-Streit BQ 900, BP 900, BI 900, or BM 900.

The proven gold standard in IOP measurement

The inclusion of the Swiss-made Haag-Streit AT 870 Goldmann applanation tonometer, the gold standard in tonometry, allows IOP measurements to be taken as part of a routine examination while the patient is sitting at the SL3 slit lamp.
