Electronic Proxy Voting

To support the health and well-being of its shareholders, employees, directors, and communities due to the public health threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company’s upcoming 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) will be held on Thursday, July 30, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. PT, but the Annual Meeting will be held in a virtual-only format and shareholders will not be able to attend in person. The virtual meeting will provide shareholders the ability to participate, vote their shares, and ask questions.

As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting previously distributed, shareholders are entitled to participate in the Annual Meeting if they were a shareholder as of the close of business on June 1, 2020, the record date. Regardless of whether you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote and submit your proxy in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. The proxy card or voting instruction form included with the proxy materials that were previously distributed to you will not be updated to reflect the change in location. The proxy card included with the proxy materials previously distributed may continue to be used to vote your shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.

To be admitted to the virtual Annual Meeting, go to and enter your unique 16-digit control number, which may be found on the proxy card, voting instruction form or Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, as applicable, provided with STAAR’s previously distributed proxy materials. You may vote during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions available on the meeting website during the meeting. For technical assistance during the meeting, you can contact Broadridge for assistance at 800-586-1548 (U.S.) or 303-562-9288 (international).

Shareholders as of the record date who attend and participate in the virtual Annual Meeting using their control number (as described above) will have an opportunity to submit questions in advance via the Internet prior to the meeting. Please submit questions by Tuesday, July 28, 2020. We will try to answer as many shareholder-submitted questions that comply with the rules of conduct as time permits.

Additional information regarding the rules and procedures for participating in the virtual Annual Meeting will be set forth in the meeting rules of conduct, which shareholders can view during the meeting at the meeting website or prior to the meeting at
