Date:11/13/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today announced that it would introduce four new products at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology to be held November 16-19 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.  There will also be several presentations featuring IRIDEX products and its proprietary MicroPulse laser for retinal and glaucoma treatments.

The products include:

  • A new version of the TxCell™ Pattern Scanning Laser Delivery System. The new iteration of the high-speed delivery device is compatible with the largest market of physician-owned slit lamps.
  • A new IRIDEX MicroPulse Laser Trabeculoplasty (MLT) lens manufactured by Ocular Instruments.  The new product, distributed exclusively through IRIDEX, is designed to increase efficiency and precision of MLT for the treatment of glaucoma.   
  • A portfolio of single-use 27-gauge laser probes, Peregrine Surgical-branded, that are compatible with the growing number of 27-gauge vitrectomy systems used in retina surgery.
  • A GreenTip™ Membrane Scraper, available in 23 & 25 gauges, offering a single-use surgical device intended for specialized retinal surgery.  The new device is designed to maximize visualization against the retina and is a derivative of the proprietary GreenTip product family.

"These are each significant new products that represent what we see as important niches and opportunities in the ophthalmology marketplace," said Will Moore, IRIDEX President and CEO. "Furthermore, they are prime examples of our ability to identify growing needs in the marketplace and quickly design and launch consumable products to meet those needs."
