STAAR Surgical Receives Japanese Clearance for the KS-Ni Preloaded IOL Injector System
Date:6/17/2009

MONROVIA, Calif., June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STAAR Surgical Company (Nasdaq: STAA), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of minimally invasive ophthalmic products, today announced the approval of the KS-Ni Preloaded Silicone Intraocular Lens (IOL) injector system by Japanese regulatory authorities.

The KS-Ni Preloaded Silicone IOL Injector System allows the surgeon to deliver STAAR Japan's blue-blocker silicone IOL through an incision size of 2.6 mm as compared to the current 3.2 mm incision size. A smaller incision will likely induce less astigmatism and allows for quicker healing. The KS-Ni Preloaded System also provides for fewer steps in the delivery process of the IOL making the system more user friendly for nurses and surgeons.

"The approval of the KS-Ni Preloaded IOL Injector continues to highlight the rapid fire launch of products that leverage STAAR Japan's expertise in the area of preloaded delivery systems for foldable IOLs," said Barry G. Caldwell, President and CEO of STAAR Surgical. "During the past week STAAR has received three different product regulatory approvals in the U.S., Europe and now Japan which illustrates the results of our continuous improvement efforts by our quality and regulatory teams."

The KS-Ni Preloaded Injector System also offers benefits to the Company as there are more than one third fewer components making the system easier to assemble and less costly to manufacture. The Company is evaluating the opportunity to expand the system to other key markets.
