Share |




The Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society 50th Annual Program takes place October 11-14, 2019 at the  Hotel Nikko in the beautiful 'city by the bay' - San Francisco, California. You will find a wide range of shopping, and dining all within steps of this fine hotel. San Francisco is a fabulous city to explore and experience all hours of the day and night enabling you to thoroughly enjoy your time outside of the meeting. Make sure to join us at Friday’s 50th Anniversary Welcome Reception to share in a toast to the Society as you catch up with old friends and also make new ones!

In 1969, Johnny Justice Jr. and some like-minded colleagues had a dream of starting a professional society for ophthalmic photographers.  Since those early days, the Society has grown, prospered, strengthened, and evolved into the vibrant organization that we know today.  Since our founding, we have focused on (pun intended) delivering the highest quality learning opportunities and education for our members.  This year's Annual Program is no different.  Johnny Justice Jr., among other early members of the OPS, will be present for special presentations, sharing memorabilia, as well as the 50th Anniversary Commemorative Lecture.  

The Board of Education (BOE) is proud to have a faculty of "Eye Imaging Experts" with several returning speakers, photographers, physicians, and industry leaders.  They will offer their best cases, images, equipment, and expertise.  With 22 new courses, the educational program includes not only traditional ophthalmic photography, but several sub-specialties including ERG techniques, meibography, and an entire timeline of ultrasound imaging.  There are also a number of courses dedicated to the aspiring CRA and OCT-C with practical tips on how to prepare your portfolio, and preparation topics geared for those that need a review before taking the written exam.  There are courses for everyone, like the very popular Ophthalmic Imaging Crash Course for the beginner who is new to the world of ophthalmic imaging, all the way through to the Advanced SD-OCT lecture and workshop for the seasoned expert.

One of the newest and fastest growing technologies in ophthalmic imaging is OCT Angiography.  To make sure you are able to learn and get hands-on training, each day has a dedicated course on OCTA, plus two days with workshops and break-out sessions to allow more hands-on practice with devices and interaction with vendors.  Add to this more workshops and break-outs for fundus photography, ultrawide imaging, angiography, slit lamp imaging, clinical stereo photography, goniography, and more.  You can also get more hands-on time with various imaging devices during the Vendor Forums taking place on both Saturday and Sunday during lunch.  Vendor representatives will be present to answer any questions you may have about a wide variety of available imaging systems.  

These courses help to increase our knowledge in our highly specialized field and contribute to elevating the esteem of our profession.  But more importantly, furthering our education improves the quality of care we give our patients and our profession plays a vital role in improving their lives.  


Please join us in San Francisco, October 11th - 14th to help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary!
