2018 Mid-Year Wrap-Up




This year's OPS Mid-Year meeting was held in Denver, CO - more specifically The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center at Fitzsimons in Aurora, CO the weekend of June 8-9, 2018. The program highlighted 12 speakers who offered a wide variety of lectures covering many aspects of ophthalmic imaging. The topics presented included anterior segment OCT and angiography, OCT-A, UBM, the history of retina and cataract surgery, imaging through small pupils and the always popular Ophthalmic Jeopardy.





The keynote speaker was Dr. Scott Oliver, Chief of Vitreoretinal Diseases and Surgery at Lions Eye Institute. His talk entitled “Treatment and Prevention of Radiation Retinopathy” was very well received and gave great insight into ocular melanoma, the most common treatments including using radiation plaques, and the imaging used to track the progression of the side effects.




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 including Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc; EyeKor; Fundus Photo, LLC; Genentech, Inc.; Haag-Streit USA Inc.; Heidelberg Engineering Inc.; Nidek Incorporated; Optos, Inc.; Optovue, Inc.; Ellex; Sonomed Escalon; and Topcon Medical Systems.


At the end of each day, a prize was awarded to a randomly selected attendee who had visited with all of the vendors. Additional awards were also donated by the Rocky Mountain Ophthalmic Personnel.


The Lions Eye Institute was a great place to host the Mid-Year program. The facility proved to be the perfect fit for our meeting. The staff were welcoming and gave attendees a tour of the building and imaging areas. The weather was warm all weekend for those who ventured out by an easy train ride or drive to explore the many restaurants and shops in Downtown Denver.



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 Hoang Nguyen, BOE Chair Jim Soque, BOE members Johnathan Hawkins, Addie Stone, Stuart Alfred and our volunteer Lydia Dimmer for their efforts on making this meeting a success.
