Mason, OH-Haag-Streit USA announces the launch of Haag-Streit Surgical, a new division that will market a line of surgical microscopes that already enjoy significant market share throughout Europe. The devices, formerly known as Möller-Wedel, are now being offered in the United States under the new Haag-Streit Surgical brand. 

“This line of surgical microscopes is well established in Europe,” said Ernest Cavin, Haag-Streit USA chief executive officer. “Now American ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, and otolaryngologists will have better access to devices with a proven record of superior optics. This launch offers a new choice for the marketplace-one that will benefit doctors and their patients.”

The Hi-R NEO 900 is a universal microscope for surgical procedures, such as ophthalmology, that require vertical observation. The surgical microscope line, including the Hi-R NEO 900, will be on display at the Haag-Streit booth at ophthalmology conferences throughout 2013.
