A state-of-the-art outpatient medical facility in the busy and cosmopolitan seaside Athens suburb of Glyfada.

Established in 1985

Ophthalmos Eye Surgery & Therapeutic Institute embodies the scientific and medical vision of a pioneering Greek eye surgeon, Dr. Spyros Georgaras, who conceived of an eye care center that went far beyond the usual, providing world-class treatment for patients while promoting excellence in skills and services among his colleagues. The result of this dream was the founding of the aptly named Ophthalmos Research and Therapeutic Institute in 1985. The standards and scope of treatment offered today remain at the highest level and place it in a uniquely authoritative position in Greek ophthalmology.

Our Centre provides patients the choice of being treated at three different medical facilities, to cater for different needs. Here in Glyfada we operate a fully equipped one-day surgery as well as a state-of-the-art ophthalmology practice. Depending on your requirements, you may also have your procedure at “Hygeia” Hospital in Maroussi, north of Athens, accredited by JCI, or at “Metropolitan” Hospital, near the port of Piraeus. At “Ophthalmos” in Glyfada, we combine cutting-edge technology with a distinctive style. From our examination rooms to our operating room and the lobby area, we bring you the expertise required to practice ophthalmic medicine as a healing art. And with more than 40,000 successful surgeries to our credit, we are in the unique position to do so!

A Pioneering Vision

During the early years, our emphasis was on the anterior segment of the eye but has since expanded to include the entire human visual system. As scientific knowledge has grown over time, the tools and expertise of ophthalmologists have grown in tandem. Ophthalmos Institute has embraced these developments and now offers a comprehensive service to all our patients. If your needs are for a routine check-up, LASER treatment, cataract removal, glaucoma therapy or vision rehabilitation and training (and more), we can offer you and your family the expertise and advice you require to make informed decisions about your vision health
