Smartphone Fundus Photography:  A Review of Various Techniques
Dr. Zain Khatib, MBBS, MS

Smartphones today all come with advanced technologies and good quality cameras. Smartphones are being used by ophthalmologists for fundus imaging in the last few years, however, the quality of images continues to be poor, not comparable to traditional fundus cameras. This presentation is aimed at teaching the correct techniques of smartphone fundus imaging and also describing the various methods by which the quality of fundus images can be improved.

Hi-Tech Spanish for Ophthalmic Photographers
Marcela Hickey, CRA, FOPS

This course is for the English speaking ophthalmic photographer who occasionally has non-english speaking patients. Translation technology will be introduced highlighting the latest technology to assist the technician.  Key phrases will be taught in Spanish to enable the photographer to manage the patient at the fundus camera or slit lamp and help the patient understand the process of having an eye photographed, thereby increasing patient cooperation.  At the end of this course, the student should be able to communicate common phrases as well as the ability to use available translation technology that will help with photographic procedures.

OCTA and the Ophthalmic Photographer:  What You Need to Know
Greg Hoffmeyer

OCT Angiography may be one of the most significant new modalities to come to ophthalmology in several years and it's impact, not unlike the early years of OCT, has not been fully realized. A description of how the technology works will be explained as well as its use in the everyday retina clinic in the assessment of AMD, Diabetic Retinopathy and vascular occlusive disease. Comparisons to dye angiography will be explained in addition to the advantages and limitations of OCTA. The impact of OCTA on the workflow of the ophthalmic photographer/technician will be analyzed.

Respect the R-P-E
Denice Barsness, CRA, COMT, CDOS, ROUB, FOPS

The Retinal Pigment Epithelium constitutes a simple layer of cells which separate the choroid from the neurosensory retina. The relationship between the RPE and PR cells is crucial to sight. Imaging of the RPE architecture is a daily task for most ophthalmic imagers. Measuring the function of the RPE visa vis electrophysiology is less common. Knowledge of the unique architecture of the RPE, its role in diseases and disorders and how to measure both the architectural disruption and visual function loss will improve the skill set of the ophthalmic imager/ technologist. Case studies will be provided on the modalities of color fundus, fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography and electrophysiology of common conditions affecting the RPE.
