Company Description

STAAR Surgical Company is at the vanguard of minimally invasive ophthalmic vision enhancement and technology. We believe in the importance of improving the efficiency, convenience, and comfort of corrective eye surgery for both medical professionals and patients. It is for this reason that we continually evaluate our existing products to ensure that we are providing the latest cataract, refractive error, and glaucoma treatments. From our patented COLLAMER lenses to Cruise Control, our unique new high vacuum surgery system, STAAR Surgical Company is responsible for some of the most revolutionary developments in ophthalmology. Regarded as a technology leader in the surgical eye correction industry, STAAR Surgical Company was founded in 1982 when the intraocular lens (IOL) was still in its relative infancy. Although still an integral part of the company's portfolio, STAAR Surgical Company's product lines have expanded beyond cataract correction solutions to include lenses and medical devices for refractive and glaucoma surgery. STAAR Surgical Company has revolutionized the industry with its development and use of Collamer. This unique lens material is used in the Afinity™ line of intraocular lenses (IOLs), the Visian ICL, and the Visian TICL*. Each Collamer lens produced by STAAR Surgical Company is made from a material that not only is durable, but also replicates features of the eye's natural lens, creating high quality of vision and optimal biocompatibility. STAAR Surgical Company has developed into a global surgical eye correction technology leader. To foster ongoing growth, we emphasize creativity, research, and development. Using these tools, STAAR Surgical Company plans to continue making advancements in technology, marketing, and financial strength
