Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to report a very successful American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2013 conference. The annual meeting took place between the 16th and 19th November, at the Ernest N. Morial convention centre, New Orleans. It displays the largest exhibition of ophthalmic technology, products and services in the World.

The event showcased the entire Haag-Streit Diagnostics portfolio of products. The stand (number 745) was organised by local distributor, Haag-Streit USA and featured the Octopus family of perimeters. The Octopus 600 was officially launched to a worldwide audience at the event, which generated a lot of interest.

HS-UK attended the event with the Clement Clarke Ophthalmic range of UK-manufactured products. These included; the BA904 portable slit lamp, Perkins Mk3 hand-held tonometer and Tonosafe disposable prisms. Free Tonosafe samples were available for delegates to take away with them, which proved very popular.

Other products highlighted on the stand included; the LENSTAR biometer which boasted recently-launched exciting features, and the BQ900 slit lamp with IM900 imaging module.

The Haag-Streit Surgical team showcased the Allegra 900 microscope, fitted with a beam splitter and dual 3D cameras. The iOCT (the World’s first OCT system to be integrated into a microscope) was also displayed on the Hi-R NEO 900A microscope.

Dean Johnson, HS-UK Managing Director, said, “The Haag-Streit stand was very busy throughout the four days. We were delighted with the success of all the products, and had particular interest in the LENSTAR biometer and Haag-Streit Surgical microscope portfolio. The launch event for the Octopus 600 was fantastic, we were over-subscribed and the venue was full to capacity.”
