Professor Filipec is a colleague I have known for a very long time. During that time he has always put the interests of his patients first and gone the extra mile for them. He is an excellent cataract surgeon and his refractive outcomes speak for themselves. Many of his patients recommend their friends and family to him and I would happily refer my friends and family to him for an opinion and surgery. Through and through an excellent ophthalmologist.
