Presbia to Participate in JMP Securities Life Science Conference 2016 in New York

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Presbia PLC (NASDAQ: LENS), an ophthalmic device company and leader in near-vision restoration, announced today that Todd Cooper, President and CEO, is scheduled to present at the JMP Securities Life Sciences Conference 2016 on Tuesday, June 21 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The Conference is being held June 21 and 22, 2016 at The St. Regis New York.

Presbia has developed and is marketing the Presbia Flexivue Microlens™, a proprietary optical lens implant for treating presbyopia. Mr. Cooper will discuss Presbia's current international commercial strategy, with a focus in South Korea, one of the largest ophthalmology markets in the world. South Korea has one of the highest per capita incidences of presbyopia, the age-related loss of near-vision, and is also one of the most penetrated markets for LASIK surgery. The combination of both of these factors makes South Korea an ideal market for the Company to launch its innovative solution for presbyopia. Mr. Cooper will also discuss a peer-to-peer surgeon symposium that is being held in Seoul, South Korea this month. It will be attended by approximately 20 eminent South Korean surgeons who have expressed strong interest in the Presbia Microlens solution for near sightedness.

Mr. Cooper will be available for one-on-one meetings at the Conference.
