Rolf Schwind, CEO of Schwind Eye Tech Solutions GmbH, has been presented with the Gusi Peace Prize 2008 in a ceremony held on November 24th in Manila, the Philippines.

Mr Schwind's award was in recognition of his achievement in the field of industry and innovation, for the development of the Amaris laser. The innovations available with the Amaris - five-dimensional eye tracking and different energy levels for optimal ablation control - are not currently available on any other laser platform, which were the grounds for awarding this prize.

This is the eighth year the Gusi Peace Prize has been awarded. Fifteen winners were selected from almost 1500 nominees in the fields of medicine, chemistry, physics, journalism, politics, economics and art contributing to the advancement of peace and human rights.
