The Annual Event 2017 offers the opportunity to exchange with industry experts and researchers on the subject of surfaces around the eye.

“Sight" is an important sense. In many cases, our eyes exhibit an age-related decline in performance. To address the related challenges, Switzerland has strongly established itself in medical technology and in particular in ophthalmology (ophthalmology). Functionalized product surfaces are key elements, since they are in direct contact with synthetic materials as well as with human tissues. For the performance of this medical products, functionalized surfaces generate value and are often critical success factors.
