Head of the Department: Dr. Tasos Georgiou
The Department of Ophthalmologic Surgery performs the latest surgical procedures for eyes diseases involving cataract, myopia, retina, etc. The 2 operating rooms are fully equipped with the most up-to-date surgical and perfusion equipment.The latest surgical procedures include e.g.:
Small incision cataract 1.8mm
Laser Refractive surgery -new generation of refractive correction to eye sight. Intralase Lasik Laser for the complete solution in the treatment of myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism and presbyopia. 
"IntraLase-Enabled Keratoplasty" - used to create corneal incisions for full-thickness corneal transplants
Vitrectomy: Small incisions are made into the wall on the outer part of the eye to allow the introduction of instruments into the vitreous cavity, the middle of the eyeball, in order for the vitreous to be removed followed by the re-attachment of the retina.

Department of Diagnostics Tests
Head of the Department: Dr. Tasos Georgiou
The Ophthalmos Eye and Laser Centre offers the following Diagnostics Tests:

The SPECTRALIS HRA + OCT delivers the ultimate in retinal imaging. Multi-modality imaging offers deep insights into structure, function and metabolic activity of the retina. Unique simultaneous digital fluorescein angiography and Indocyanine Green Angiography images with 3-dimentional resolution improve the diagnosis of retinal and choroidal pathologies. 

The Spectralis anterior segment module captures simultaneous OCT and infrared scan providing a detail 3-dimentional view of the anterior chamber. 

When applying the technology to glaucoma (HRT) it takes 3-dimentional tomography images of the optic nerve and RNFL retina layers aligns the images and computes a 3-dimentional topography map of the surface of the retina. The HEP perimetry data can directly link to HRT optic disk analysis and together with fovea thickness can combine structure function analysis. This is the most advance technology of glaucoma analysis.

Department of Administration
