The company also launched the Crystalens HD accommodating IOL and the Advanced Control Eye Tracking (ACE) technology for its Zyoptix refractive platform, which, according to B&L, compensates for static rotational movement and pupil shift for improved accuracy and predictability.

The Crystalens HD, the successor to the Crystalens Five-O, gained CE mark approval in August and was showcased to Europe for the first time at the congress. This initial launch will be followed by a full-scale rollout, expected in the second quarter of 2009.
