• The Emmetropia Mediterranean Eye Institute, a private-sector ophthalmic surgery clinic, offers advanced vision correction in a patient-centered environment. Access to conventional and cutting-edge refractive surgery technologies such us LASIK, ASLA (All Surface Laser Ablation) and more, for a wide range of vision problems, enable our physicians to optimize results by meeting each patient´s individual needs.
  • Before undergoing the procedure, it is helpful to understand how the eye works. The eye is a simple sphere, about 2.5cm in diameter, yet its power is awesome. It discerns colors and shapes. In bright or dim light. From near or far. It helps you read books, and situations, and people. It is a vital link to the world around you. And it succeeds through a complex ballet of muscles and nerves.

    The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped window that forms the front wall of the eye and the retina is the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye that connects to the brain. Light reflected off an object passes through the cornea. Muscles in the eye contract or relax to adjust the shape of the lens, focusing the light rays. The rays then reach the retina, where over 100 million light-sensitive cells read them and transmit the image through the optic nerve to the brain. Because the light rays cross while going through the cornea, the retina reads the image upside down—but the brain readjusts so you stay properly oriented.

  • Our team with long training and expererience in refractive surgery in USA, UK and University of Crete, has a passion for excellence to deliver highest standard of service in a human and emotionally safe (for our patient) environment. This team with its dense experience in clinical practice, research and teaching feels a sense of responsibility to lead by example of enthusiasm, loyalty and professionalism to satisfy each one of our patient’s individual needs. We keep having a key role in the international society of ophthalmology by publishing papers in the international peer-reviewed bibliogrpahy.
