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

ontinued product enhancements as we move forward."

A foldable IOL is a prosthetic lens used to replace a cataract patient's natural lens after it has been extracted in minimally invasive small incision cataract surgery. STAAR manufactures IOLs out of silicone and Collamer(R), STAAR's proprietary biocompatible collagen copolymer lens material. STAAR Japan introduced the first preloaded IOL lens injector system to the international markets during 2003. STAAR introduced the Centers of Excellence Project in the fourth quarter of 2008. It is designed to enhance STAAR's ability to deliver innovative surgical products to customers by focusing the Japanese operations on developing and manufacturing innovative lens delivery systems and focusing the U.S. operations on optics design and manufacturing. The expected result is costs savings and more rapid introduction of new technologies.

"The introduction of our KS-X preloaded delivery system will be primarily focused on our direct markets and other key markets in Europe where reimbursement for our end customers are higher. The outstanding functionality of our preloaded system has already won market share in the more difficult silicone segment, and this approval allows us to bring the technology to the growing number of surgeons who prefer the hydrophobic acrylic lenses for their patients. With the introduction of this product in these markets, we believe we are moving toward our goal of establishing our preloaded delivery systems as the global standard of care in all IOL lens segments," Mr. Bailey said.

First shipments of the product in key European and Australian markets are expected to begin in late June. The acrylic-lens-based preloaded injector is not approved for sale in the U.S.
