FREE downloadable larger breath shield template available for Haag-Streit slit lamps

Harlow, UK – 25th March 2020 - Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard ophthalmic and optometry equipment, is pleased to offer a FREE downloadable breath shield template for Haag-Streit slit lamps.

The World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) have issued a set of guidelines for ophthalmologists caring for patients potentially infected with the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

In line with these organisations, Haag-Streit Diagnostics (HSD) recommends the use of breath shields to help protect eyecare professionals, and their patients, when using a slit lamp. These work in addition to face masks, goggles and other protective equipment.

HSD has created a FREE template to enable clinicians to create a larger breath shield themselves, inexpensively. This template works in conjunction with the original breath protecting shield and is suitable for use with BQ 900, BP 900, BI 900 and BM 900 slit lamps.

The free template is available to download online at, with a different template created for each slit lamp model.
