The ophthalmic optics sector started the new year by laying a solid foundation for successful business partnerships in Munich, Germany. On January 13-15, one of the key trade shows in the optical domain took place — opti 2023, which gathered global lens and glasses manufacturers, sellers, designers, and IT solution providers. Let us share some spotted trends and impressions after the show.
As one of the major world trade shows in the industry, opti presented the entire spectrum of optics ranging from frames, ophthalmic lenses, contact lenses, and low-vision products to shop set-up, technical equipment, and devices.
Intetics has participated in opti since 2011, enriching its expertise in all domain branches. Visiting events like opti keeps the Intetics team current with the latest trends to provide innovative solutions to leaders around the optics industry.

Trends Spotted at Opti 2023: Sustainability and Myopia-Management
The top trend highlighted during the event was dedicated to exploring myopia management and the potential use of glasses as a new approach to slowing myopia progression. Experts led panels, gave lectures, and provided opportunities for attendees to have peer-to-peer conversations with representatives from leading exhibitors.
Ophthalmic optics is also showing a more ethical attitude toward new sustainable products and services. Environmental protection and responsible resource management have become increasingly common practices among companies in the sector. Market players mostly engage in the following “green” initiatives:
- using organic, reusable materials for glasses manufacturing,
- production facilities to become CO2-neutral & minimizing carbon footprint,
- no plastic packaging,
- the eco-friendly approach in all aspects of the business.
