Dr. George Papamastorakis

Surgeon ophthalmologist George Papamastorakis graduated from the University of Crete and completed his specialization in Ophthalmology at “G. Papanikolaou Hospital” in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Upon completion of his speciality, he worked for the Department of Child Ophthalmology – Strabismus of Athens, Greece (Opthalmiatrion of Athens) for a period of time. He did post-graduate training in England in Cosmetic Ophthalmology and the use of injection implants and Botox at Paddocks Clinic in Buckinghamshire.

His specialized knowledge in Laser Surgery was initially acquired by his participation in International Training Seminars (Fellowships) of VEMMO Institute of the University of Crete under Professor Ioannis Pallikaris and was further pursued abroad (Germany) by attending seminars organized by   worldwide pioneering companies of laser eye equipment.
Dr Papamastorakis is currently  president  of the Ophthalmology Association of Crete, is a member of several societies and has an active  presence in ophthalmology conferences both in Greece and abroad.

About Laser Eye Clinic

Dr. Papamastorakis Georgios operates as a surgeon ophthalmologist in Heraklion Crete since the year2000. His practice, in the center of Heraklion, is equipped with the most modern diagnostic and treatment systems against almost all ophthalmological disorders. He provides a complete ophthalmological examination of adults’ eyes, but also specialized pediatric ophthalmic examination with special ophthalmological equipment for children, making the procedure as enjoyable, fast and simple as possible.

There is the ability of analytical glaucoma control by performing visual field test, as well as the study of fundus diseases of the eye and their treatment with laser. The specialization in the correction of refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia) using the most advanced Laser M7 by Excelsius provides the ability to treat any case, after a series of special examinations. The keratoconus after being detected and studied with special ophthalmological equipment is treated either conservatively or by special surgical techniques. The treatment of cataract is achieved by the use of ultrasound systems and the most modern and high technology intraocular lenses.

Finally, there is the surgical ability to correct eyelid and conjunctival diseases, as well as aesthetic – cosmetic ophthalmology section by the use of conservative or surgical techniques.



Aesthetic Ophthalmology

Cosmetic Opthalmology can “turn back time” by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, sun damage and sagging skin that can make your eyes look angry, sad or tired.



Glaucoma is an eye disorder that causes damage to the optic nerve that carries information from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma usually has few or no initial symptoms.


Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery includes an array of modern surgical procedures designed to improve vision problems, often eliminating the need for corrective lenses.


Pediatric Ophthalmology

Pediatric ophthalmologist focus on the development of the visual system and the various diseases that disrupt visual development in childrenaque
