The entire spectrum of the optical industry: opti is back!
13 – 15 May 2022
Experience products live, casual conversations, spontaneous exchanges – this is possible again at opti 2022. After the break caused by the pandemic, the International Trade Fair for Optics and Design from May 13th to 15th, 2022 in Munich is the opportunity for the optical industry to meet again in person and to find out about news and trends. In terms of content, the focus is on two major topics: sustainability and myopia management.
In mid-May, opti finally invites you back to the Munich exhibition halls. As usual, the leading trade fair for DACH and the European optical market is a meeting place and showroom in one and offers a range of innovations, specialist knowledge and key topics in the industry plus plenty of space for personal encounters and product experiences.
Colors, shapes and technologies
“The unique spring edition of the 2022 opti comes up with a whole range of highlights. Whether it’s retro charm or large glasses with star appeal, frames in the Pantone color of the year, the delicate very peri violet, or understatement in classic black: glasses underline the personality of their wearer more than ever and have, through digitization of the world of work during the months of the pandemic once again gained popularity,” says Bettina Reiter, head of opti. Carbon glasses that, despite their striking frames, only weigh as much as a sheet of paper and promise feather-light comfort. Tailor-made 3D glasses that fit the face perfectly and adapt to the ears and nose without pressure points, as well as lenses that are self-tinting, unbreakable and extremely contrast-enhancing at the same time.
From myopia control to myopia management
Myopia management is also becoming increasingly important in these times. Spectacle lenses that not only help to control myopia, but even slow down progressive short-sightedness, will be presented at the Munich Exhibition Center from May 13th to 15th, as well as multifocal daily contact lenses or orthokeratological night lenses, which, individually adjusted, can be worn while you sleep model the cornea and enable clear vision without visual aids during the day, even with severe ametropia. Artificial intelligence is also being used more and more in ophthalmic optics. Using AI, AMD, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy can be reliably detected within a few seconds in automated multi-pathology retinal screenings.
