Alcon LADAR6000 Gets FDA Lasik Approval

New Lasik excimer laser system faster and more accurate.


FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2006--Alcon, Inc. (NYSE:ACL) announced today that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its LADAR6000(TM) Excimer Laser with high speed ablation for use in LASIK and PRK refractive surgery. With a 50% faster ablation rate than previous LADARVISION(R) platforms, the LADAR6000(TM) laser significantly decreases surgical time, especially in higher refractive correction ranges, and results in less exposure of the corneal flap. The LADAR6000(TM) laser, developed on a flexible platform to allow for future upgrades, also includes a number of enhancements that are designed to improve overall system performance, ease of use, and patient flow.

The FDA also granted the industry's broadest wavefront-guided hyperopic indication for Alcon's CUSTOMCORNEA(R) procedure on both the LADAR6000(TM) laser and the LADARVision(R) 4000 System. With this approval, doctors are able to treat hyperopia and hyperopic astigmatism (+0.75D to +5.00D sphere with up to -3.00D cylinder) in addition to the current range for myopia and myopic astigmatism.
