In the fall, the OPS will be going back to the windy city by the great lakes. You guessed it - Chicago here we come!
October 17-21, the OPS Annual Program and its attendees will again feast their eyes on the historical landmark, the Intercontinental Hotel and the Jewel of Chicago's Magnificent Mile. This hotel is centrally located in downtown Chicago at 505 North Michigan Avenue and walking distance from Millennium Park with the famous Cloud Gate Sculpture. From there you can find a state-of-the-art collection of architecture, landscape design and art
that provide the backdrop for hundreds of free cultural programs
including concerts, exhibitions, tours, and family activities.
While the guest rooms are beautifully renovated, the meeting rooms are historically inspired with gorgeous painted walls and ceilings. The high class OPS lectures will be presented in rooms like King Arthur's Court and Renaissance ballroom. After a day of many lectures and the Scientific Session, head to the Camelot for the traditional OPS Welcome Reception on Friday.
Continue the fun on Saturday with many new choices of lectures put together by Michael Kelly, this year's Education Chair. Finish off the day with the Keynote speech from the J. Donald Gass Memorial lecture series. Later in the program, the workshops will start and if you are a seasoned photographer consider giving back by teaching in one of the workshops. For those that need a little guidance, having hands-on with an expert showing you the way can be the highlight of your OPS Program experience.
Here is a special invite from Michael Kelly:
Come learn with us! Chicago is one of the “Great Cities of the World” and is the perfect location to host our 45th Annual Educational Program. We are fortunate to have so many outstanding speakers this year, and so many new courses! …23 to be exact. Legendary Ophthalmologists and Ophthalmic Photographers will take to the podium to tell us about the latest imaging technology and techniques, and give us the necessary insight to new imaging devices that are soon-to-be-in-our-clinics.
Here is a 'Sneak Peak' at some of the titles:
- We will get the “inside word” on swept-source, ray-traced, ultra-high resolution, polarization-sensitive, doppler, and en face OCT, photoacoustic imaging, adaptive optics –a host of exciting technology that will challenge our skills and support our creativity.
- We will be wow-ed by what has been described as “The Greatest Show on Earth” -Dr. Alan Zalta’s 3D presentation of stereo gonioscopic, slit lamp and optic nerve images in All About Glaucoma in 3D.
- Jim Strong will moderate the hugely popular course Pearls, Tips & Tactics.
- Paula Morris will host an important talk on Women in Ophthalmic Photography.
- Dr. Ivan Schwab will talk to us about Super Heros of Vision and the Ten Coolest Eyes on the Planet.
- We will take our skills to the next level with Tim Steffens presentation: Getting the Most Out of Your OCT.
- Angiogenesis, anti-VegF, ocular gene therapy, animal imaging, PACS systems, ocular tumors and parasites are fascinating topics to both beginners and seasoned imagers.
- For the newcomers to our field, Sarah Moyer's Ophthalmic Imaging Crash Course is not-to-be-missed. Our famous hands-on workshops will be in full swing throughout the program.
- The J. Donald M. Gass Memorial Lecturer will be Scott Cousins, MD who worked directly with Don Gass for years. Dr. Cousins is one of the top 34 ophthalmologists in the world, and is a tireless supporter of our profession, our art and our craft.
