Date:9/12/2007

Moore is Director at BlueLine Partners, Recent Equity Investors in IRIDEX

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) announced today the appointment of William M. Moore to its Board of Directors. Mr. Moore, a director at BlueLine Partners, replaces Robert K. Anderson who has left the Board of Directors for personal reasons. IRIDEX recently completed a private placement of equity with BlueLine and as part of the financing BlueLine has the right to designate an individual for appointment to the IRIDEX Board of Directors.

"Will is a great addition to our Board as he brings 25 years of experience leading medical device businesses," said Theodore A. Boutacoff, Chairman of the Board at IRIDEX. "Will's financial, marketing and overall management expertise will be key assets to IRIDEX as we continue to grow the Company. We are delighted with Will's appointment and look forward to working with him on our shared goal of enhancing shareholder value. At the same time, on behalf of the entire Board, I would like to thank Bob Anderson for his eight years of service as an IRIDEX Director. We will miss his wisdom, wit and contributions."

Will Moore currently serves on the Board of Directors of Criticare Systems and Natus Medical Inc. (Nasdaq: BABY) a company he co-founded in 1990 and for which he served as its CEO until 1993. Mr. Moore was a co-founder and, from 1998 until 2003, CEO of MetaSENSORS Inc. a health care development company. From 1993 to 1995, Mr. Moore was the Vice President of Marketing and Sales and a member of the Board of Directors of Arzco Medical Systems Inc. He negotiated the acquisition of the company from the Marmon Group and later the sale of the assets to Baxter Healthcare Inc. In addition, from 1993 to 1998, Mr. Moore served on the Board of Directors of Responsive Medical Applications Inc. and negotiated the sale of the company to HillRom Inc. From 1983 to 1988, Mr. Moore was the Director of Marketing for Nellcor Inc., now a division of TYCO Inc. during which time sales grew from zero to over $100 million. Mr. Moore earned his B.S. degree from the University of Utah.

"I am excited about joining the Board of Directors at IRIDEX," said Mr. Moore. "IRIDEX has earned a reputation of developing laser products that are clinically effective, reliable, portable, versatile and affordable, and its acquisition of the Laserscope aesthetic business has helped diversify the Company's portfolio. With BlueLine's recent infusion of capital, I believe the Company is well on its way to recovering from the challenges of the Laserscope transaction. IRIDEX is continuing to implement other cost-saving strategies to realize synergies between the ophthalmology and new aesthetics businesses, and I am confident that the results of our efforts will help bring a return to profitability."
