MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported preliminary revenues of approximately $12.4 to $12.5 million and $46.0 to $46.1 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2016, respectively, meeting the previously provided quarterly and full year guidance provided by the Company. Revenue growth compared to fourth quarter and full year 2015 was driven by the Company's new flagship Cyclo G6™ glaucoma laser platform that is powered by the Company's proprietary MicroPulse™ technology. For the 2016 fourth quarter, the Company sold approximately 96 Cyclo G6™ glaucoma laser systems and shipped approximately 8,000 G6 probes.

Moore, President and CEO.
The Company expects to release its complete fourth quarter and full year 2016 results in early March 2017, at which time, the Company will provide guidance for full year 2017.
