STAAR Surgical Launches New Visian ICL™ Product Line Extensions at ESCRS
Date:9/8/2010

not want to spend extra money for presbyopic correction.  

On Monday evening, STAAR Surgical sponsored a Symposium on refractive surgery that was attended by over 400 surgeons. In 16 video based presentations, leading global refractive surgeons demonstrated how practitioners can further fine tune success in refractive surgery results.

"The newly expanded indications of the Visian ICL for international markets more than doubles the potential market for the ICL," said Barry G. Caldwell, President and CEO of STAAR.  "The lower diopter range for both myopic and hyperopic patients will now be available in 0.25 diopter increments with new pricing segmentation, which will allow the Visian ICL to compete more effectively with LASIK.  The addition of a Visian Toric Hyperopic ICL and the ability to treat mixed astigmatism will also increase the addressable market with the Visian ICL.  Results from an interactive response system of the attendees at the ICL Expert's Meeting revealed the belief shared by 40% of the group that within five years, 40% of all refractive procedures would be with phakic IOLs."
