STAAR Surgical to Purchase Canon's Interest in Japanese Joint Venture
Date:10/26/2007

ld significant value for our stockholders."

Canon Staar's acrylic Preloaded Injector, currently approved for sale in Japan and China, employs an acrylic lens supplied Nidek Co., Ltd. under an arrangement that will continue after the transaction. Nidek has also acted as a Japanese subdistributor for Canon Staar's silicone Preloaded Injectors, and STAAR anticipates that Nidek will continue to handle this sales channel after the closing of the transaction.

The closing of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is scheduled to occur on December 28, 2007 or after all conditions to closing have been met. STAAR has sufficient cash reserves to pay the cash consideration under the Purchase Agreement and complete the transaction. STAAR may, however, elect to seek financing for the transaction and additional working capital purposes. Based on recent indications of interest, STAAR believes it could obtain such financing on reasonably acceptable terms should it choose to do so.
