essible manner.  STAAR, in conjunction with ophthalmologists, is rolling out these videos around the world.  In South Korea, where the ICL has captured over 10% of the refractive surgery market, STAAR's distributor has invested in a direct-to-consumer educational video which will be shown with pre-movie trailers during the first quarter.

"During 2011, it is important that we continue to make progress toward regulatory approval for the Visian Toric ICL in the United States and Japan," continued Mr. Caldwell.  "The market in Japan offers a very large opportunity for the ICL technology, particularly given the high percentage of the population who experience myopia and astigmatism.  With the Japan market for the ICL available the entire year, we expect our growth rates in 2011 to exceed our level in 2010."

About STAAR SurgicalSTAAR, which has been dedicated solely to ophthalmic surgery for over 25 years, designs, develops, manufactures and markets implantable lenses for the eye.  All of these lenses are foldable, which permits the surgeon to insert them through a small incision.  A lens used to replace the natural lens after cataract surgery is called an intraocular lens or "IOL."  A lens used in refractive surgery as an alternative to LASIK is called an Implantable Collamer® Lens or "ICL."  Over 200,000 Visian ICLs have been implanted to date; to learn more about the ICL go to: www.visianinfo.com.  STAAR has approximately 300 full time employees and markets lenses in approximately 50 countries.  Headquartered in Monrovia, CA, it manufactures in the following locations: Nidau, Switzerland; Ichikawa City, Japan; Aliso Viejo, CA; and Monrovia, CA.  For more information, please visit the Company's website at www.staar.com or call 626-303-7902.
