John Weiss and Haag-Streit UK appointed joint UK Distributors of the HEINE range of primary diagnostic instruments

Harlow, UK – 30th January 2020 –John Weiss & Son and sister company Haag-Streit UK have both been appointed joint UK distributors for the HEINE Omega 500 LED Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope (BIO) and the HSL 150 hand-held slit lamp.

The Omega 500 BIO offers unique synchronised adjustment of convergence, allowing high-quality, stereoscopic fundus images through any pupil size. The multi-coated illumination system ensures excellent optical performance and the exact vertical alignment of the illumination with the observation path minimises the reflections.

Due to the mounting of the optics on an aluminium frame, the OMEGA 500 is solid, long lasting and is guaranteed to be dustproof. The HC 50L Headband Rheostat controls the LED illumination, as well as the XHL Xenon-Halogen illumination.

Designed for comfort and ergonomics, the system offers height, distance and angle positioning for the optics. The independent interpupillary adjustment and ergonomic control placement allows for a customised fit and intuitive operation.

The HSL 150 is a hand-held slit lamp for examination of the anterior segment. Compact and lightweight, it is ideal for situations where a full-size slit lamp is not available. Suitable for both human and veterinary medicine, the slit lamp can be used for domiciliary visits. It is perfect for those who cannot comfortably sit at a slit lamp, such as wheelchair-bound patients.

The HSL 150 offers a continuous slit adjustment, 6 x magnification and a blue interference filter for corneal examination. The lightest slit lamp of its kind, the instrument head weighs in at just 70g.

John Weiss has also been granted distributorship for the HEINE range of loupes and headlights. The range, which includes the ML4 LED Headlight and the LoupeLight2, offer optimal LED illumination, a wide range of magnification options and a lightweight professional design for fatigue-free working.
