MENTOR REPORTS RECORD QUARTER

 MENTOR REPORTS RECORD QUARTER
 SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Mentor Corp.


(NASDAQ: MNTR) today reported record sales and earnings for the first quarter ended June 30, 1992.
 Net income for the quarter was $2.6 million, or $0.24 per share, compared to $1.7 million, or $0.16 per share last year, an increase of 50 percent.
 Sales for the first quarter were $27.7 million, an increase of 24 percent over sales of $22.4 million last year.
 Sales growth was led primarily by a resurgence in plastic surgery sales following the lifting of the Food and Drug Administration moratorium on breast implants, by strong international sales and by a strong performance from urological surgical products.
 "We are very pleased with this quarter's results," said Christopher J. Conway, Mentor's chairman. "The excellent growth in earnings is due to sales growth, improved gross profit margins, reduction in regulatory expenses and improved performance by Teknar, the company's ultrasound imaging subsidiary."
 Mentor Corp. produces medical and surgical devices for the specialties of urology, plastic surgery and ophthalmology.
