Welcome to Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute. We are a centre devoted exclusively to Ophthalmology,with more than 40 people working at the clinic,  in a modern facility and equipped with the latest technology. Our services are offered under the national health scheme (Gesy) , and privately.

Through our dedicated team of specialist surgeons, nurses, optometrists, orthoptists, technicians, researches and other staff, we are committed to excellence in healthcare, research and medical education by alleviating human suffering from eye diseases.

Our research is driven by a desire and mission to find cures for blindness through discovery and innovations. We have discovered a ground-breaking patented therapy for the first cause of blindness that enables us to change how the world sees.

RESEARCH AT THE INSTITUTE

Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute investigates the effects of omega 3 fatty acids in age related macular degeneration, macular dystrophies and optic neuropathies . We have recently been able to demonstrate that dietary intake of omega 3 fatty acids at a specific dose so that the blood AA/EPA ratio is within a therapeutic range can protect against dry macular degeneration, Stargardt’s disease, glaucoma and ischaemic optic neuropathy in murine models. Dr Tassos Georgiou is the head of the Research department and is currently the Principal Investigator of a multicentre phase 2 clinical study in Europe to investigate the effects of the patented treatment using omega 3 fatty acids on dry macular degeneration and Stargardt disease (MADEOS study). A few examples of our publications : Ischemic Optic Neuropathy in the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science Journal, Dry Macular Degeneration in the British Medical Journal Ophthalmology. Glaucoma in the Experimental Eye Journal, Stargardt's disease in the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science Journal and Aging Retina in the British Medical Journal Ophthalmology.

The Research Team at Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute are dedicated to help people with vision debilitating eye conditions. We are using novel treatments to improve vision in eye pathologies, where currently there is no treatment. We investigate the effects of a patented dose of omega 3 fatty acid formulation against inherited and acquired ocular disorders.
