Event Spotlight: FOPS Lunch

The 2012 OPS Annual Program was my first ever OPS meeting. In addition to the wonderful and educational classes, the Annual program can be a great way to network with top professionals in our field. One of the best of these networking opportunities was the "Fellow of the OPS” lunch.

On Sunday afternoon in between fabulous OPS classes, I took a short walk to Pockets, a nearby soup and sandwich restaurant. Another OPS newbie and I met with Paula Morris and Kirsten Locke. At the time Paula was the President of the OPS and today Kirsten is the Vice President of the OPS. Talk about great role models for a young woman just starting out!

I am not the kind of person to turn down a free lunch, but I got so much more than free food from the FOPS lunch. Where else can a newbie to the field of ophthalmic imaging get the chance to have an in depth, one-on-one conversation with top professionals in her field? I had the opportunity to chat with these lovely ladies about my background and my future goals. They gave me tips on certification and advice on being an ophthalmic photographer (even on life in general!). After meeting with Paula and Kirsten, it showed me a clear path to where I want to be in the future.

If you are going to attend the OPS Annual program this year in NOLA, then you seriously should consider attending the FOPS Lunch. What a great way for people to get to know all about the OPS while receiving some great advice for your future as an ophthalmic imager. Space is limited. If you are interested in participating in a FOPS Lunch, please reach out to Heather Carmello at
