About STAAR Surgical Company
STAAR Surgical Company engages in the design, development, manufacture, and sale of implantable lenses for the eye. The company makes lenses both for use in surgery that treats cataracts, and for use in corrective or refractive surgery.
All of the lenses the company makes are foldable, which permits the surgeon to insert them through a small incision in minimally invasive surgery. The company refers to its lenses used in refractive surgery as implantable Collamer lenses or ICLs.
Minimally Invasive Intraocular Lenses (IOLs): The company produces and markets a line of foldable IOLs for use in minimally invasive cataract surgical procedures. Its IOLs can be implanted into the eye through an incision less than 3mm in length, and for one model as small as 2.2 mm. Once inserted, the IOL unfolds naturally to replace the cataractous lens.
The company also markets foldable IOLs packaged in a preloaded delivery system with an independently sourced acrylic lens in various markets outside the U.S. During 2009, STAAR introduced the nanoFLEX IOL, which has NTIOL approval and can be delivered through a 2.2 mm micro-incision using STAARs new nanoPOINT Injection System.
The company has developed and markets, principally in the U.S., the Toric IOL, a toric version of single-piece silicone IOL, which is specifically designed for cataract patients who also have pre-existing astigmatism.
STAAR Japan introduced the Preloaded Injector in international markets in 2003. The Preloaded Injector is a silicone or acrylic IOL packaged and shipped in a pre-sterilized, disposable injector ready for use in cataract surgery. In 2006, STAAR Japan began selling in Japan an acrylic-lens-based Preloaded Injector employing a lens supplied by Nidek Inc., a Japanese ophthalmic company. The acrylic Preloaded Injector is sold in Europe and other Asian countries. Nidek also assembles and sells the acrylic Preloaded Injector under its own brand, using injector parts purchased from STAAR Japan. STAAR Japans agreement with Nidek provides for the sale of the acrylic Preloaded Injector in additional territories by mutual agreement of the two companies.
Visian ICL (ICLs): ICLs are implanted into the eye in order to correct refractive disorders such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. The ICL is capable of correcting refractive errors over a wide range. The ICL is available for myopia in the United States in four lengths and 27 powers for each length, and internationally in four lengths, with 41 powers for each length, and outside the U.S. the HICL for hyperopia is available in four lengths, with 37 powers for each length, which equates to 420 inventoried parts.
Other Surgical Products
The company also sells other related instruments, devices, surgical packs and equipment that it manufactures or that are manufactured by others.
German Distribution Business
During the year 2009, STAAR owned Domilens, a German ophthalmic distribution company. Domilens principally resells and services products manufactured by third parties, along with STAARs ICLs and Preloaded Injectors.
The company markets products to a variety of health care providers, including surgical centers, hospitals, managed care providers, health maintenance organizations, group purchasing organizations, and government facilities. The primary user of its products is the ophthalmologist.
The company competes with Alcon Laboratories; Abbott Medical Optics; and Bausch & Lomb. Primary competitors in the development and sale of products used to surgically correct cataracts, specifically foldable IOLs, include Alcon, Abbott and Bausch & Lomb.
STAAR Surgical Company was founded in 1982.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
