I am so happy I put my trust into Mr Dimitri Kazakos he is amazing when you have a consultation with him, he is up front and honest about risks and glasses may still need to be worn in some cases. I had my lens replacement at the weekend and what can I say .. I am amazed that I can see so clear, even had to put my font on my phone to a size a lot smaller as it was too big!! I could just about see it before. The team at White City are all lovely I felt comfortable whilst there. But thank you Mr Dimitri Kazakos you are a truly wonderful surgeon whom I would recommend anyone to see and have the procedure done by. You gave me my sight back God bless you xx
