STAAR Surgical Receives Approval to Market Visian(R) Toric Implantable Collamer Lens in China
Date:2/29/2008

meeting in Japan during January, STAAR's Visian ICL and TICL were used in approximately 60% of those procedures. "Our goal in China over time is to at least replicate the market penetration we are achieving in South Korea," Mr. Caldwell added.

Made of STAAR's proprietary, highly biocompatible Collamer(R) material, the ICL, TICL and the ICH are the only minimally invasive foldable lenses of their kind approved for the Chinese commercial market. As a result of the unique foldable design, the ICL procedure allows an incision up to 50% smaller than competing technology, and its placement in the eye behind the iris provides a more aesthetically pleasing outcome. These approvals in China are for treatments of myopic patients with refractive errors between -3.00 and -20.0 and astigmatism up to six diopters. The hyperopic approval is for patients with refractive errors between +1.0 to +4.0.
