Staar Surgical has begun a clinical trial in the US with its implantable contact lenses. The trial is being carried out at a number of sites, including the Eye Centers of Florida in Fort Meyers, where the first patient to receive the treatment for myopia regained normal vision one day after the procedure. Staar Surgical, based in Monrovia, California, said that its implantable contact lenses, which are only available outside the US, are designed to correct moderate to severe myopia and hyperopia.
