The Reichert Xcel slit lamps seem so underrated when compared to the other big players in the field. There’s a lot to like however about both the ‘newer’ and older’ Xcel line-up, and the entry-level 200 model is no exception- despite it falling into the older category. Immediately, you’ll notice Reichert slit lamps provide an ultra-soft joystick feel that stands apart from other competitors. There’s something about the feedback that the joystick/base-relationship provides the operator that will make them look forward to an examination. Unlike ‘chunkier’ microscopes, Reichert Xcels don’t feel as if you’re lugging around 50lbs of metal. This is largely in part thanks to a slim and compact footprint also looks quite good. The Xcel 200 provides 3 magnifications, red free, cobalt blue, heat absorbing, neutral density filters, and a halogen illumination.


OUR TAKE: An entry-level Reichert that feels like a great value.

The feather-touch XYZ joysticks, convenient controls, and ergonomic design, combined with top quality materials and meticulous assembly, ensure years of comfortable, enjoyable use. The outstanding optical performance, features and quality make the Reichert Xcel series comparable to the world’s elite slit lamps.


• High efficiency multilayer optical coatings for enhanced light transmission
• Halogen illumination
• 3 step magnification 10x, 16x, 25x
• Feather-touch XYZ joystick
• 12.5x magnification eyepieces
• Red free, cobalt blue, heat absorbing, neutral density filters

Reichert recommends using their CT-210 model applanation tonometer with the Xcel 200, however any Zeiss-style tonometer will easily mount onto the Reichert Xcel 200.

LED and Halogen illumination types are solely referencing the bulb type. Both still produce the same intensity of light however LED illuminations may appear slightly more stark than Halogen; the microscopes filter can counter act this. LED bulbs have a far longer life expectancy (despite a higher cost) than Halogens and typically burn ‘cooler’.

The elevation of the Reichert Xcel 200 is controlled via the joystick, allowing for single-handed control of all axis’.

The Reichert Xcel 200 utilizes parallel optics to produce a 13 ̊ parallel binocular view.

In general, converging optics display a view produced from two oculars intersecting to produce the same image in each.

Parallel optics display a different image in each optic, operating in a mutually exclusive way.
