Dr. Tassos Georgiou
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.
