The intraocular lens manufacturer STAAR is dedicated solely to the field of ocular surgery and for over 25 years has designed, developed, manufactured and sold intraocular lenses and the systems associated to their implant. All of its lenses are foldable which enables surgeons to insert them through micro incisions.
The STAAR intraocular lenses which are used in refractive surgery as an alternative to LASIK are known as ICL (“Implantable Collamer Lens”). Over 360,000 ICL lenses have been implanted to date (more information on www.visianinfo.com).
STAAR has 300 employees and sells its lenses in over 60 countries. With its headquarters in Monrovia (CA), it has branches in Nidau (Switzerland), Ichikawa City (Japan) and Aliso Viejo (CA).
