Purpose and Eligibility
The purposes of the plan are primarily:
All of our approximately 4,100 regular employees would be eligible to receive incentive awards under the Amended 2004 Plan. Under the Current 2004 Plan, no individual who was an employee of AMO or one of its other subsidiaries at the time of the acquisition of IntraLase is eligible to receive awards. Other than this change in eligibility for AMO employees, the terms of the Amended 2004 Plan are the same as those of the Current 2004 Plan. Our independent directors and certain consultants are also eligible to receive incentive awards.
