STAAR Surgical Reports Strong First Quarter 2013 Financial Results
Date:5/1/2013

upplier of acrylic IOLs has been unable to meet the high demand for the new KS IOL products.

  • Preloaded IOLs were 78% of total IOL revenues as compared to 75% in the first quarter of 2012.

  • In the U.S., sales for IOLs declined, although Toric IOLs increased. 
  • The Company conducted nanoFLEX Toric IOL premarketing clinical trials during the quarter and the official product launch for Europe occurred during the ASCRS meeting.

  • Project Comet Update

  • The manufacturing consolidation project continues to be on plan.
