While representatives from Optos are constantly in the field talking to eyecare professionals about our products and technology, we really enjoy the chance to talk to groups of professionals at conferences and trade shows. Optos regularly attends these events, creating an educational opportunity for practitioners to learn more about our retinal imaging devices, as well as how more and more studies are proving the benefits of ultra-widefield imaging.
Optos recently had a presence at Optrafair, one of the largest shows in the industry in the UK, and we stayed busy sharing information with attendees about our Daytona device and autofluorescence imaging.
Optrafair attendees listen to a talk about Daytona and autofluorescence imaging.
Our representatives also attended a meeting of the Pacific Retina Club, at which Optos’ technology was featured in 11 presentations, including the keynote address from Dean Elliot from Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary on Retinoplexy. We also had representatives present at the Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society Midyear Meeting, where we were able to share about Daytona and our 200Tx with many attendees. Additionally, Optos’ technology had some exposure when it was also featured recently in two papers published in Retina: The Journal of Retinal and Vitreous Diseases.
Optos representatives were also present at The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) conference, which took place last week in Seattle. We’re honored to have our technology featured in 58 posters and presentations at this conference and enjoyed meeting with the practitioners that were present.
