The largest optical manufacturing conference in the country is being held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

Optifab showcases the latest technology in optics and photonics.

Patrick Franzen says, "Rochester right now is the hub for photonics in the country. You have groups like AIM Photonics based in Rochester really promoting the technologies. You got a number of companies within this space in a small radius."

The conference started on Monday and wraps up on Thursday.
