What Dr Kazmi’s patients say about him

Dr Kazmi was very thorough and told me everything I needed to know prior to going in for the surgery, which made me feel at ease. It went very smoothly and I have not looked back since.

Surgery was the best thing to happen to me. I don’t have to wake up and put my glasses on, it’s just amazing. I am so glad I went to optical express, the service was great, especially the surgeon. Thank you.
