Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute
Welcome to Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute. We are a centre devoted exclusively to Ophthalmology, with more than 50 people working at the clinic, in a modern facility and equipped with the latest technology. We are the only centre in Cyprus offering a range of specialist operations through GESY, such as retinal detachments, corneal transplants, glaucoma lasers and repair of complicated cataract operations.
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.
We have a collaboration with the Biobanking and Biomedical Research of the University of Cyprus to determine the genes responsible for eye diseases in Cyprus. Link www.biobank.cy
We are also committed to teaching the future Ophthalmologists by offering the Medical students experience in clinical Ophthalmology. The final year Medical Students from the European Medical School have their clinical placement in Ophthalmology at our Institute.
RESEARCH AT THE INSTITUTE
The Ophthalmos Research & Education Institute won patient trust and established itself in the consciousness of the Cypriots 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 latest publications: Ischemic Optic Neuropathy in the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science Journal, Dry Macular Degeneration and aging retina in the British Medical Journal Ophthalmology, Glaucoma in the Experimental Eye Journal and Stargardt’s disease in the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science Journal.
