The Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society is extremely excited to announce the Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 Mid-Year Keynote Speaker: Dr. Joel S Schuman, Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology and Professor of Neuroscience and Physiology at NYU Langone Medical Center, NYU School of Medicine, and Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. 



Dr. Schuman is a member of numerous organizations including the American Ophthalmological Society, ARVO, The American Association of Physicians, where he has received numerous awards including the AAO Lifetime Achievement Award. Having published more than 350 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, himself and his colleagues were first to identify a molecular marker for human glaucoma, published in Nature Medicine in 2001.


Continuously funded by the National Eye Institute as a principal investigator since 1995, he is an inventor of optical coherence tomography (OCT), which has revolutionized ocular diagnostics worldwide. The OPS is extremely excited to have Dr. Schuman speak on the topic of OCT, a technology that has facilitated and changed the way we diagnose and treat glaucoma and retinal diseases, in addition to the detection of subtle evidence of disease progression, as well as aiding in anterior segment and neuro-ophthalmic disorders. 


Dr. Schuman, with his years of expertise in the field of OCT and glaucoma will cover the past, present, and future of OCT. The course is designed to instruct participants on the proper use and interpretation of OCT in glaucoma through didactic instruction including OCT-Angiography and Swept Source OCT. An in depth look at five different scenarios where OCT would be clinically useful in glaucoma diagnosis, progression detection, and management will also be presented.
