Dave Baker BSc(Hons) MCOptom

Optometrist



Dave qualified in Optometry in 1991 and began his interest in Refractive Surgery in 1998 when he worked for a large UK Refractive Surgery provider. He went on to complete a Certificate in Refractive Surgery at the University of Ulster and a year later became a tutor on the course. He has been involved in over 14,000 laser treatments to date.

Dave's work has taken him all over the world including work in the West Indies, training courses in Australia and presentations at conferences in Europe and the US. He also takes time out for charity work in Africa where, taking spectacles which are no longer required, he takes part in projects which visit developing countries to restore sight to those who have no access to eye care.

Dave’s special interests are in pre-operative screening, post-operative care, treatment planning and operation of the laser.
