This year's OPS mid year meeting was held in Pittsburgh, PA at the Wyndam University Center the weekend of June 2-3, 2017. The program highlighted eighteen speakers who offered a wide variety of lectures covering many aspects of ophthalmic imaging. The topics presented included pediatric and handheld imaging, an update on macular degeneration therapies, OCT-A, clinical trial imaging, microperimetry, surgical photography and the always popular ophthalmic jeopardy.



The keynote speaker was Dr. Joel Schuman, who is one of the inventors of the OCT. His talk entitled “Optical Coherence Tomography for Photographers – Past, Present and Future” was very well received and gave unprecedented insight into the development and application of OCT imaging.




An exciting course entitled “Technology Update: Vendor Exhibits” was presented both days and enabled attendees to spend time with cutting edge equipment and learn about treatment strategies from many leading ophthalmic imaging companies. We wish to thank all the sponsors who gave their time and resources to the OPS.



The OPS held its first “Mileage Contest” where prizes were awarded to the attendee who traveled the farthest distance to attend the meeting as well as prizes for the most employees in attendance, traveling the farthest, from the same group. Congratulations to Glen Jenkins from Salt Lake City, UT (1,878 miles) and Paul Hopkins & Kyle McClellan, the group from Jackson, MS (972 miles).





The city of Pittsburgh was a great place to host a program and the hotel proved to be the perfect fit for our meeting. The weather was fantastic all weekend for those who ventured out to explore the many restaurants, shops and parks around town.





 Thank you to all the speakers and attendees who came together to create this fantastic event. A special thank you goes out to General Chair Heather Carmello, BOE Chair Jim Soque, BOE member Brian Detwiler and all the volunteers for their efforts on making this meeting a success.






Please be sure to fill out your CEC surveys before the deadline of July 20th, 2017 to receive credit for the courses you attended.
