Technicians’ Conference

Join us for the 7th Annual NOAO Technicians’ Conference, Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel!

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. You will come away re-energized by new knowledge and insight that will have an immediate impact on your work. 

In addition to our annual Technician’s Conference held on the Friday of the Annual Symposium, we are partnering 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. For more information on Saturday’s instructors, visit
