SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--Dec 19, 2005 -Non-Animal-Based, Stabilized, Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler Products Manufactured with Mentor's Patented DXLTM Technology

Mentor Corporation (NYSE:MNT), a leading supplier of medical products in the United States and internationally, today announced that it has received approval to begin marketing and distributing its PuragenTM and Puragen PlusTM hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler products in Canada. Both products are indicated for the correction of facial folds and wrinkles and for lip augmentation and will be distributed through Mentor's Canadian subsidiary.

"Mentor's dermal filler products are important new options that help me optimize facial rejuvenation outcomes for my patients," commented Claudio De Lorenzi, M.D., Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and past-President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and current President of the Canadian Laser Aesthetic Surgery Society. "I am pleased to now have access to both of these products for my patients in Canada. It is important to have alternatives, and I predict that a product that contains anesthetic will be extremely popular among doctors and patients."

The medical device license applications granted by Health Canada for Puragen and Puragen Plus were based on data from the Company's U.S. pivotal clinical trial for Puragen Plus. Both Puragen and Puragen Plus are uniquely stabilized through Mentor's patent-protected DXLTM technology, which introduces two discrete cross-linking reactions to provide improved product stability relative to all other commercially available hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers on the market in Europe, Canada and the United States. Puragen Plus is the only hyaluronic acid-based product on the market in Canada that is formulated with an anesthetic for improved patient comfort.

"Puragen and Puragen Plus are Mentor's first products for the fast growing facial rejuvenation market, and we are pleased that they are now available in Canada," commented Joshua H. Levine, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mentor Corporation. "We are committed to developing and marketing leading products based on advancements in science and technology and expect to expand our portfolio with botulinum toxin and other products used in non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the future."

Puragen was launched in Europe in May 2005. The CE Mark for Puragen Plus is pending. In the United States, Mentor expects to complete the filing of its pre-market approval application for Puragen Plus in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2006, which ends March 31, 2006.
