Professor's Greeting

We are very proud to present in this web site the activities - research, clinical and medical services - of the Research Institute (EL.K.E.TH.O.P.) that belongs to the University of Thrace and is ruled by the Committee of Researches in order to supervise all the activities that are developed.

The EL.K.E.TH.O.P. focuses its scientific activities on subjects like: the Cataract, the Glaucoma and Refractive Surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

Our Centre allocates advanced technology equipment and follows the stricter protocols of application and patients' follow-up while the scientific activities have been rewarded throughout Greece and abroad.

Although we are quite "isolated" in North-Eastern Greece (since the half population of Greece lives in Athens), we offer by the way of compensation, apart from high quality services, the possibility for an "escape" in the beauties of a county that has many things to offer.

Since we are a non-profit Research Institute of D.U.TH. we seek always sources of financing, from programs of European Union or from sponsoring of individuals and for this reason a special topic exists in the home web page explaining the funding policies of EL.K.E.TH.O.P.

The specialised personnel can answer to any of your questions at any time or advise you in matters like ophthalmic pathology and surgery.

You can also contact us in the electronic address and we will reply to you as soon as possible.

With friendly greetings

Vassilios Kozobolis MD, PhD
Professor of Ophthalmology D.U.T.H
Head of the Ophthalmology Dep. at the Alexandroupoli University Hospital and Eye Institute of Thrace (ELKETHOP: Greek Centre of Research and Therapy of Ocular Diseases)
