Date:2/26/2009

24th Consecutive Profitable Quarter Earns $.08 Per Diluted Share

LARGO, Fla., Feb. 26 /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 second quarter ended December 31, 2008 (FY2009).

Net sales, excluding royalty income, increased 1.2% to $1,530,242 in FY2009 second quarter, compared with $1,512,361 in the previous year second quarter (FY2008). The increase was primarily a result of continued growth of the Company's C-Vue brand disposable specialty contact lenses, sold exclusively to licensed eye care professionals.

FY2009 second quarter net income was $358,945, compared with $375,915 in the previous year second quarter. Excluding a one-time favorable tax adjustment of $44,422 in the previous year second quarter, FY2009 second quarter net income increased 8.3%.

Royalty income for the FY2009 second quarter increased 3.0% to a record second quarter of $666,569 compared with $646,849 in the prior-year quarter. Sales of licensed products by our licensee Bausch & Lomb continue to increase, resulting in continued royalty income growth.

FY2009 second quarter income before taxes increased 11.9% to a record second quarter of $606,717 compared with $542,257 in the prior-year quarter. After recording net income tax expense of $247,772, Unilens reported net income of $358,945 for the quarter, or $0.08 per diluted share. In the FY2008 second quarter, the Company reported net income of $375,915, or $0.08 per diluted share, which included income tax expense of $166,342.

"We are very pleased with our second quarter results, considering the current economic environment," stated Michael J. Pecora, Chief Executive Officer of Unilens Vision Inc. "Double-digit growth from our C-Vue brand of lenses sold exclusively to independent practitioners, combined with a 3% growth in royalty revenue derived from Bausch & Lomb's sales of multifocal lenses that use our key technologies, was responsible for our record performance."

"I am also pleased to report that the Unilens Board of Directors declared its regular quarterly dividend of US $0.09 per common share, payable this Friday, February 27, 2009. "This decision was based on the Company's strong balance sheet, and projected operating cash flows and is consistent with the Board's commitment that shareholders should share directly in the earnings achieved by management while continuing to execute our growth strategy," concluded Mr. Pecora.

For the six months ended December 31, 2008, net sales excluding royalty income, increased 3.3% to $3,291,768, as compared to $3,185,722 for the prior-year six months. Net sales of the Company's C-Vue brand disposable contact lenses increased approximately 11.3% during the first half of fiscal year 2009, while sales of replacement products lines declined, as expected.

Net Income for the six months increased 9.6% to $825,312, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with $753,211, or $0.17 per diluted share in the prior-year 6 months.

Royalty income for the six months ended December 31, 2008 increased 9.6% to a record $1,379,966, compared with $1,259,648 in the prior-year 6 months, demonstrating continued demand for sales of licensed products by our licensee Bausch & Lomb.

Income before taxes for the six months ended December 31, 2008 increased 18.7% to $1,374,976, compared with $1,158,758 in the prior-year 6 months. After recording net income tax expense of $549,664, Unilens reported net income of $825,312, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the six months ended December 31, 2008.
