Date:5/2/2011

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had issued to IRIDEX a patent applying to a group of specially designed laser handpieces used in invasive ophthalmic surgical procedures. The patent, No. 7,909,816 and titled "Directional Probe Treatment Apparatus," applies to a number of consumable medical devices already in the IRIDEX product line collectively known as Stepped Angled EndoProbe® laser handpieces.

This patent helps us further differentiate our products from our competitors and creates new barriers for competition."

"Furthermore, we intend to expand our Stepped Angled EndoProbe product line by introducing additional versions," Boutacoff added. "This is another example of us executing on our ongoing goal of increasing the number of consumable devices we offer and to further grow our revenue in that high-margin category."
