Diamond Vision Enlarges Its Manhattan Operations

New Investment in Home Market by Leading LASIK Brand

GREENWICH, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- Diamond Vision, the leading provider of laser vision correction in the New York metropolitan area, is announcing the opening of a new, larger laser center in mid-town Manhattan.

This investment, along with the purchase of new diagnostic equipment, reflects Diamond Vision's confidence in the future of the $7.1 billion industry and the enduring popularity of CustomVue "blade-free" Intralase LASIK, which Diamond Vision was the first to offer in the New York metropolitan area. More people choose Diamond Vision for this premium procedure, which combines a blade-free experience with customized treatment, than any other provider in the tri-state area.

"After more than ten years of presence in New York, and the leading market share for refractive surgery, it was time to bring the patient experience to the next level," said Diamond Vision President Isabelle Filatov, PhD. Although Diamond Vision's administrative headquarters is located in Greenwich, CT, its flagship laser center is in Manhattan.

Located on West 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue, the new LASIK center is more than twice the size of the old one -- enough to accommodate the growing number of New Yorkers looking for more freedom from glasses or contact lenses.

"We are very pleased to give our patients the luxury of space," said Steven W. Stetson, MD, Medical Director of Diamond Vision, "along with a relaxing and professional environment."

Among the many amenities offered by the new laser center are:

-- All-new "blade-free" Intralase FS60 upgrade

-- State of the art diagnostic equipment for thorough patient screening

-- "Filatov Preventive System" protocols for sterility

-- Light, temperature and humidity-controlled treatment rooms

-- MD suite for research and training

-- Four patient rest areas

-- Sensational views of Manhattan architecture

-- Swarovski Crystal chandeliers

-- Convenient to parking facilities and public transportation
