OPS Forum Rules and 'Netiquette' Locked Topic 0 T. Bennett OPS Forum Rules and Netiquette The purpose of the OPS Forum is to provide connections between and support for OPS members. We want this to be a place where our community will develop; we can enjoy one another's company, share interests and foster education. To achieve this, we strive to maintain an atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all and we ask all members of the community to be respectful at all times. This means please use etiquette and politeness. Treat people with kindness, gentleness and respect. If you do this, the rest of the code of conduct won't need more than a cursory mention. The OPS Forum Moderators reserve the right to edit or delete any forumcontent that does not adhere to these rules. Start clear threads. Start your post with a clear specific subject. Post a follow up to let the people that help you know that you appreciate their help and let future readers know the information was useful. You can also mark a thread solved as a courtesy. Stay on topic. Each thread should stay on one topic. Off-topic messages may be deleted without notice. If you have made a mistake, apologize, and re-post to the correct thread, if one exists. Otherwise, start a new one. If your message is deleted, the poster is responsible for re-posting to the correct thread. Keep the language and tone polite and respectful and maintain decorum. Name calling, rudeness, disrespect toward others, insults, profanity or inappropriate discussion will not be tolerated. Any attempt to disrupt a thread or to promote discord is prohibited. Often discussions deteriorate in response to a single message. Do not respond back. It takes two for a discussion to fly off. Remember: everyone has the right to express their opinion, but within the bounds of decency and sensitivity to others. All posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author of each post. Respect the privacy of others.

Politics and Religion: These two topics can cause serious problems. Please find another venue to exercise your freedom of speech on these topics. No trolling. Don't post to inflame others. Substance is the key to avoid trolling (sowing discord or attempting to upset people). There is zero tolerance for trolls. They cannot be reasoned with and we don't attempt to. When writing your messages, please use the same courtesy that you would show when speaking face-to-face with someone. This is less obvious and harder than you think. Practice. No pornographic material. Sexually suggestive material will seriously scrutinized. We'd like everyone to be able to read the forums at work or share them with family and friends.

Criticize ideas, not people. Intolerance toward race, gender, ethnic groups or business is prohibited. Avoid uppercase. Don't type whole messages in uppercase as this is the method to indicate shouting. It is also difficult to read. No profanities or foul language. We reserve the right to edit or remove inappropriate messages. Avatars, photos and images must adhere to forum standards and norms. No spamming.

COVID salary survey 2 P. Crown Thank you to everyone who participated, it looks like we had 15 respondents.  It's not a huge crowd given the size of the OPS, but even the small collection of information I think reflects to some degree what is being experienced right now.

Heidelberg vs Zeiss vs Topcon: Round 1 3 J. Griffith, OSC The canon software has fairly robust DICOM capabilities, as does HEYEX. Depending on how accessible your Spectralis "server" is, you might be able to execute a DICOM push directly to HEYEX and eliminate some of the manual steps. Haven't tried it, but I certainly investigate it, depending on your volume and tolerance for manual importing.j-

New Certification with EyeKor - Real Simple! 4 J. Soque The site is super easy to use, we're working through them with Panda2 and Graybug, but Eyekor had me do the separate certifications for both of those. They never got back to me about being able to use my CRA or OCT-C portfolios for anything, it was disappointing. Even the contacts that I reached didn't know about this certification process.

Dream Fundus Camera 2 C. VandenHoven I would love to see a camera that allowed for a 5DS R back. You can change from being full frame to being APSC (it's a internal software based force crop technique), it's not anti-aliased so you remove the digital averaging of pixels that all anti-aliased systems give. Then also have it be a full spectrum camera. Doing that would make it so you could shoot IR, and in a system like the older topcons where you had a spot to manually place a filter, you could put any filter you needed to act as a barrier to let only one wavelength of light through, or a small range of light through. Since SF6 and C3F8 are very particular to wavelengths of light penetrating them effectively this could make it so a fundus camera could more easily view the retina through them. Also, for me, it'd still have to be a canon body, I'm not a fan of the nikon software, no offense, just personal preference.I'd also like whatever software was being used to allow me to still have full control of the DSLR on the back, I'm fighting with a CF-1 that keeps pushing the ISO back to 800, which makes it so the images are too bright and they turn red. If I could keep it to 200 or 400 I could adjust the brightness of the flash rather than having it be overpowered while still being at its lowest setting.

Red Free Imaging 1 B. McCalley Realistically if the file was captured in a raw format, and was captured using the red free wavelengths, then in theory you could use an image editing software. Converting the image to black and white initially would help, but putting it to B&W while keeping the image in an RGB format you could turn off the R layer and have simply the GB layers, but really, that may not be quite the same still.
