Date:5/28/2008

21st Consecutive Profitable Quarter Earns $.08 Per Diluted Share

LARGO, Fla., May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Unilens Vision Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UVICF) (TSX Venture Exchange: UVI), which develops, licenses, manufactures, distributes and markets specialty contact lenses, today reported its operating results for the third quarter and first nine months of FY2008.

The increase was primarily the result of continued growth of the Company's C-Vue multifocal contact lenses, which increased approximately 11% in the current quarter, which was partially offset by sales of our replacement products lines that declined as expected.

Royalty income for the quarter increased 15.3% to $628,993 compared with $545,293 in the prior-year quarter. Sales of licensed products by our licensee Bausch & Lomb continue to increase, resulting in continued double digit royalty income growth.

For the quarter, the Company reported net income of $368,730, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with net income of $372,355 or $0.08 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2008, net sales excluding royalty income, increased 3.8% to $4,854,119 as compared to $4,677,358 for the prior- year period. Net sales of the Company's C-Vue multifocal contact lenses increased approximately 12% during the first nine months of fiscal year 2008, while sales of replacement products lines declined, as expected.

Net Income for the nine months increased 24.2% to $1,121,941, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with $903,697, or $0.20 per diluted share in the prior-year period.

Royalty income for the nine months ended March 31, 2008 increased 21.1% to a record $1,888,641, compared with $1,559,496 in the prior-year period, demonstrating continued increased demand for sales of licensed products by our licensee Bausch & Lomb.

"We are pleased to report our 21st consecutive quarter of profitability driven by increased royalty income from Bausch and Lomb's multifocal sales utilizing our patented licensed technology," stated Michael J. Pecora, Chief Executive Officer of Unilens Vision Inc. "Sales of our C-Vue brand disposable multifocal and single vision lenses also continue to steadily increase, achieving double digit growth."

"Earlier this month, we added to our C-Vue brand with the launch of the C- Vue 1DAY daily disposable single vision lens.

The Company will market the lens under the C-Vue brand exclusively to licensed eye care professionals.
