STAAR Surgical Celebrates Over 300,000 Successful Visian® ICL Implants at ASCRS Congress
Date:4/20/2012

MONROVIA, Calif., April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- STAAR Surgical Company (NASDAQ: STAA), the leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of implantable refractive lenses for the eye, today announced that the total number of its Visian® ICL implants in patients worldwide has exceeded 300,000. Over 75,000 of these lenses have been the Visian Toric ICL which is approved in all the major markets in the world with the exception of the U.S. The Company will highlight the benefits of its Visian ICL lenses, as well as its premium Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) for cataracts at the annual Symposium of the American Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) to be held in Chicago from April 20 through 24.

STAAR's Implantable Collamer® Lenses (ICLs) have been used in refractive eye surgery as an alternative to LASIK since 1994.  Manufactured with STAAR's proprietary Collamer material, Visian ICLs provide a safe and effective alternative to the permanent correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

"Achieving the milestone of over 300,000 successful implants of our Visian ICL illustrates the increasing growth in popularity of our ICL," said Barry G. Caldwell, president and CEO of STAAR Surgical. "With the introduction over the past year of several truly innovative technologies that offer improved visual results and comfort for the patient and a simpler, more efficient procedure for the surgeon, we have seen increased interest in our solutions, especially as an alternative to LASIK surgery. We look forward to the presentations during the ASCRS conference of recent clinical data from many leading ophthalmologists from around the world relative to their experience with our recently introduced Visian ICL V4c, as well as our premium IOLS, including the nanoFLEX family."

"We are excited about welcoming surgeons from throughout the world to the ASCRS Congres
