MONROVIA, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STAAR Surgical Company (Nasdaq: STAA) today announced that it will release financial results for the second quarter ended July 3, 2009 on Monday, August 3, 2009 before the market opens.

Cash and cash equivalents at the close of the first quarter of 2009 on April 3 were $3.7 million.
