Technicians’ Conference

Join us for the 6th Annual NOAO Technicians’ Conference, Friday, February 10 & Saturday, February 11, 2017, at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel!

N.B. The city of New Orleans was not impacted by the weather on Tuesday, February 8th. Homes were damaged in New Orleans East, a section of the city 15 miles away from the center of New Orleans. The Symposium and Technicians’ Conference will go as planned and we welcome you to our city.

In addition to our annual Technician’s Conference held on the Friday of the Annual Symposium, we are pleased to announce that we have partnered with EyeTeachU to add a second day of content for ophthalmic personnel. EyeTeachU is an ophthalmic educational partnership between Denice Barsness, CRA, COMT, FOPS and Mark Maio, FOPS. 

Online registration for both days are now available; click here for a PDF of the agenda and registration form. For more information on Saturday’s course and instructors, visit







Strategize with accessible faculty and engage in the open exchange of techniques and ideas. This intimate educational event combines energizing sessions with cases, debates, and discussion.
