OIA Annual Conference

OIA Annual Conference

Friday 15th - Saturday 16th November, Milton Hill House Hotel, Abingdon


Join us at the Congress and see our OCT and Swept Source technologies on Stand 49.


Conference registration is now open, visit the conference website to book. 

An excellent lecture and workshop programme awaits you at this years conference to be held after a years break, network with fellow attendees and company representatives during the day and evening. There will be two eminent keynote Speakers presenting again this year.

On Friday morning there is a full series of practical workshops on a variety of subjects including, OCT, FFA, anterior segment imaging, and OCT-A techniques. This plus more will surely be of interest to many and especially those new to the profession or returning to practice. Many of these workshops will tie in with the scientific lecture programme with eminent speakers to enhance our knowledge. With one and a half days of presentations this will be very educational and informative with multiple learning opportunities.

One of the most useful aspects of the conferences is the chance to meet fellow professionals from a wide variety of institutions, to network, make beneficial contacts and learn from experienced fellow practitioners. This opportunity is invaluable in this niche profession, which is highly technical and where there is little other regularly training available.

There will be many new aspects to learn and enhance your understanding, skills and interest at this years conference. Attendance will be such an important opportunity towards your Continuous Professional Development and enable you to enhance your performance and clinical knowledge.

When BOPA/OIA first became active the main objective of their organisation was to bring together like-minded people to further the knowledge of Ophthalmic Photography and strengthen the close links many of us have in working almost entirely in Hospital Eye Units. In these early days Ophthalmic Qualification was non-existent and the concept of this was a lot of work and a long way off achievement. The past quarter of a century has enjoyed 24 successful Annual Conferences, 6 Worldwide International Symposia (ICOP) and an incalculable number of workshops and local meetings. Other achievements include close working relationships with other like-minded organisations such as AOSP and AHPO and a long-standing link with their American friends in the Ophthalmic Photographers Society (OPS).
