compilation of the PMA Supplement has been completed

Cataract Highlights

-- Global cataract sales increased by 28%

-- Sequential quarterly U.S. sales trends continue to improve

-- Seven-point plan to restore profitability to U.S. IOL business on track

STAAR Japan Highlights

-- Sales were $2.9 million for the quarter and $9.1 million for the first

nine months of the year, which is on track to meet or exceed the

original goal of $12 million for the year

-- Gross margin, profitability and cash usage are on track for the first

nine months of 2008

"We continued to successfully execute on our plan to restore operating profitability and progressed substantially toward our goals during the third quarter," said Barry G. Caldwell, President and CEO of STAAR Surgical. "Again during the third quarter we achieved significant improvement in all of the key metrics we laid out earlier this year against which investors could measure our progress. As in the second quarter, each of our sales reporting entities, including the U.S., generated year-over-year revenue increases, and we are ahead of our sales plan in Japan. Even without the contribution from Japan, which was not part of our operations last year, sales grew 12%. In the U.S., ICL sales grew 24% despite significant downward pressure on refractive procedures during the quarter, and the decline in our cataract sales was reduced to six percent
