AAO 2013 New Orleans

This year, Dr. Rodden, Julie Nelson, our office administrator, Deanna Taylor and Amanda Nelson, ophthalmic technicians and photographers, made the trip to New Orleans for the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting. Julie has previously been an ophthalmic photographer, and attended classes on imaging in past years. However, this was her first year attending administration classes.

In January 2016, three of our ophthalmic photographers attended “Essentials of Ophthalmic Retinal Imaging”, a program to take a deeper look into the retinal photography they do every day. Mokie Visser, Osmaida Balbuena and Adrian Guardado took a drive down to Sacramento, California to attend the class at The UC Davis Department of Ophthalmology.

“It was a great experience to be able to take some of the anatomy classes offered; I learned more about the biology relating to the things I bill out for on a daily basis.
