ropic ranges of treatment with LASIK.  Key presentations during the meeting demonstrated that though the Visian ICL has very good results in the higher refractive areas, it can have even better visual results in the lower ranges of refractive procedures where LASIK is most popular currently."

During the formal free paper presentation sessions at the ESCRS meeting there were 17 papers on the Visian ICL, 14 scientific posters and two courses.  All of these continued to reinforce the Visian ICL technology as a safe and effective option for addressing a wide range of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

Some of the highlights during presentations at the Visian ICL Expert's Meeting and the ESCRS included:

  • Dr. Paul Dougherty from the U.S. presented results showing that the Visian ICL was a very safe and effective treatment for lower myopes.  His preference for patients with myopia over 3.0 diopters of refractive error is the Visian ICL.  In his practice the Visian ICL visual results (88% of eyes 20/20 or better), accuracy and safety are better than LASIK.  Ophthalmologists in International markets that accept CE Mark Approval will now be able to treat below 3.0 diopters.
  • Several presentations reinforced the low complication rate of cataract formation in patients with the Visian ICL.
  • Dr. Tobias Neuhann presented the results of the German Study Group, which reflected a 1.4% rate of cataract formation among the 436 patients in the study.
  • In a study of visual outcomes and the safety of the Visian ICL in Chinese eyes, Dr. Xingtao Zhou reported a cataract formation rate of 1.67% in his study of 658 eyes.
  • Dr. Jose F. Alfonso from Spain reported a cataract formation rate of 1.4% in a seven-year study of 734 patients.
  • These studies compare with an incidence of 1.3% anterior subcapsular cataract formation in STAAR's FDA clinical study with five years follow-up.  All eyes with cataract formation we
