STAAR Surgical Receives CE Mark Approval for KS-X Preloaded Hydrophobic Acrylic Lens Injector System
Date:6/9/2009

MONROVIA, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STAAR Surgical Company (Nasdaq: STAA), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of minimally invasive ophthalmic products, today announced that it has received CE Mark approval for its KS-X Preloaded Hydrophobic Acrylic Injector for use in minimally invasive cataract surgical procedures. The CE Mark allows STAAR Surgical to market this foldable intraocular (IOL) KS-X lens delivery system in the European Union as well as other countries that recognize the CE Mark. It also signifies that STAAR's preloaded acrylic lens delivery system complies with applicable safety and quality standards.

The STAAR system enables lens delivery into the eye through a 2.8 millimeter incision and is compatible with the most commonly used small incision cataract extraction procedures. It is the only preloaded lens delivery system in the world that provides single or bi-manual injection options in one single design, allowing for the smoothest IOL injection methods compared with traditional delivery systems.

"Receipt of the CE Mark is an important accomplishment and a validation of STAAR Japan's expertise in the development of preloaded delivery systems for foldable IOLs that enable precise delivery of the lens during cataract surgeries," said David Bailey, President of International Operations. "The CE Mark illustrates STAAR Japan's expertise in delivery systems for intraocular lenses, including their use with advanced material lenses. This expertise was one of the major factors behind our recent creation of operational Centers of Excellence throughout our global operations, which is expected to drive c
