Message from Dr Tasos Georgiou

Thanks to the determination, the courage and the contribution of our collaborations we have achieved excellent results. Looking forward with optimism to the future of ophthalmology, we wish health, well-being and creativity to everyone !!

Dr. Tassos Georgiou

The steady achievements of our goals, due to our loyalty and commitment  to innovative treatments and using modern technologies, make us happy to bid farewell to another successful year.

The Eye Research & Education Institute won patient trust and established itself in the consciousness of all as a credible and pioneering center. The Institute’s  upward course has succeeded in creating significant positive impact not only for Cypriot patients but also for the world map of ophthalmology. The  research work continues with clinical studies in Europe for Stargardt's disease and Dry Macular Degeneration.

At the same time, the positive results of our research have been published in international scientific journals. A few examples of our publications in 2017 and 2018: 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 and Stargardt's disease in the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science Journal.
