RESEARCH AT THE INSTITUTE

Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute investigate the effects of high doses of omega 3 fatty acids in macular degenerations, optic neuropathies and dry eyes. 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 macular degenerations and optic neuropathies 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 omega 3 fatty acids on dry macular degeneration and a multicentre phase 2 clinical study in Europe for Stargardt disease. A phase 3 clinical study is towards the end in USA sponsored by the National Eye Institute to study the effects of the patented omega 3 fatty acid on dry eyes.

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.
