Share |




The 48th OPS Annual Education Program held in New Orleans on November 10-13, 2017 brought a total 177 attendees, some that have been to an annual program before, others’ that were new for the very first time.  The esteemed lecturers from the east, west, north and south all joined together to be a wealth of knowledge in lectures, workshops, volunteers, discussion panels, and scientific papers.

The OPS was well received at the AAO convention exhibit with our exciting display of photography, with award winning images displayed for attendees to admire.  Two vendor forums allowed for our OPS members and attendees to be updated on the most cutting edge ophthalmic imaging modalities on the market.

Highlights for this years’ program included the Don Wong award recipient Darrin Landry for best scientific paper session on Impaired Vascularity on OCT Angiography in the Glaucoma Patient, and the J. Donald Gass Memorial lecturer Dr. Carol Shields, delivering a dynamic lecture entitled, “Lumps, Bumps, and Double the Trouble”.  We are proud and honored by all that participated and attended.

Education about new exciting advances in OCT-A were selectively offered by industry experts throughout the 4-day educational program as well as Ultra-wide photography, and advanced OCT methods. Hands-on access to numerous devices were highly popular especially in the break-out sessions to allow for more hands-on practice around the lecture courses. Ultrasound imaging was very well received as a complimentary imaging modality that many photographers are combining their skills in multi-subspecialty clinics.

This four-day event was not just work but fun was also had by many enjoying the creole culture, food, lively energy of bourbon street, and delicious cuisine. The atmosphere of history, excitement, and adventure inspired many to explore outside of the academic program making shared memories with new and old friends. Jazz piano and saxophone music melodied to the crowds of people embracing the offerings of New Orleans.

Now that another part of the OPS history of excellence in imaging is completed we say farewell to city that is warm and receiving as well as so much fun we are on to the next educational endeavor of excellence for the Mid-Year meeting Denver, Colorado.  

It is with great pride and thanks to you all that I say, until next time when we meet in the Big Easy

Most Warmly,

Adeline M. Stone, CRA COT CDOS
