Julie Virks, Jersey - November 2021

I met Dave Baker at Jersey Vision Correction earlier this year.  He was very efficient, on time and patient with my never-ending questions! Despite some reservations I decided to commit to having laser eye surgery

The team worked very well on the day and I would describe the process as a bit uncomfortable but painless and very quick. I began to see big improvements every day, now some 6 months on my only regret is that I didn’t do it years ago.

I can work at my computer, read my phone, watch the TV, go out for a meal and do the supermarket shopping – even read the dashboard of the car – all without glasses. I had quite a shock when I got in the shower and could actually see the controls on the shower which I hadn’t realised were even there!  Not good for showing up the dust around your house though!! I can’t believe how much more I can see now.

Thanks to Dave and the whole team and I would absolutely recommend them – and have!!

I very much regret not booking in to have laser eye surgery sooner. The process was smooth, quick and easy. There was support 24/7 if needed and the aftercare was fully explained before and after the procedure.

After just 3 days I was able to return to work and all my previous activities. Volunteering or the Combined Cadet Force has been made so much easier and I’m able to get more involved without the worry of contact lenses and glasses

Laser eye surgery was something I had been contemplating for a while. I was fed up with the hassle of wearing glasses and fiddling with contact lenses so, in June, I decided to get in touch with Jersey Vision Correction. The lovely Jen managed to get me booked in for my free initial consultation with Dave within a week of my initial enquiry. From the beginning, Dave made me feel at ease. He explained what all my options were and went into detail about the procedure that was most suitable for me. I decided to go from there so a pre-operative consultation was arranged with Dave and Mark and then I was scheduled for surgery at the beginning of July. 


The surgery was completely painless. My vision fluctuated within the first few days after surgery but by day four, my vision was nearly perfect. Now over a month after my surgery, I have perfect vision all the time. The aftercare has been fantastic. I have seen Dave twice since my surgery to check that my eyes are healing as they should and he’s always been very helpful. I am so grateful to the team at Jersey Vision Correction. If anyone is on the fence about getting laser eye surgery, I would have to say definitely go for it as you won’t regret it!      

Adam Freeman, Jersey

I met Dave for a free consultation where he explained the procedure and reassured me on any questions I had. In a matter of weeks I’d had the surgery and my vision started to improve. Now, a few months down the line, my vision is absolutely perfect. This procedure changed my life, I no longer have the hassle of contact lenses or glasses when at work or the gym. If you are on the fence, I would defiantly recommend you go through with the surgery, the care that Dave offers is top class and meant that I felt comfortable at every stage.

Carole Stockill, Jersey

I was at that stage where if I didn’t have my glasses with me I was having to ask people to read me the menu in restaurants or the back of packets in shops!  Although I had my concerns about it, I thought it was high time to consider laser eye surgery and I haven’t looked back since.

From my first appointment with Dave I was completely reassured – you have all the facts and can make an informed decision on what is best for you.  The procedure is quick and the team are very friendly and professional, with excellent follow ups and after care.  For me it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Ella Foss, Guernsey

WOW. What an impact laser eye surgery has made to my life. I honestly don’t know why I hadn’t had the surgery sooner. It’s so relieving not having to push my glasses up the bridge of my nose every minute!


I can finally wear nice sunglasses and I can see car registration plates at a distance too! My life without glasses or contact lenses is now a walk in the park and I would recommend the surgery to anyone!


The surgery itself was super quick and painless. Post op my eyes were sore but I had done plenty of research and I knew what to expect. Drops are provided to treat your eyes and as I am a Guernsey resident the team supplied me with me plenty to ensure I wouldn’t run out. The drops were a life saver and so soothing. Around 3 days later my eyes were starting to settle and I was able to be more active.  It’s still early days and I only had my surgery at the beginning of June so of course they’re still healing and adjusting.


The team… well what can I say? They are fantastic and very accommodating. Dave and Mark made me feel at ease from the minute I met them. Dave educated me more about my eyes in ten minutes than anyone else had in 24 years of having bad vision. It was refreshing to know I was in the hands of a knowledgeable professional. 

Anyone considering having laser eye surgery should bite the bullet and go for it. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Taylor Hogan, Jersey

I would like to thank Dave Baker at Jersey Vision Correction for the amazing service I have received from my first free consultation to the after care from my surgery. I underwent laser eye surgery last Friday and felt at ease throughout the whole procedure as I was kept updated what was happening throughout. Also, the after care service I received was outstanding – over the weekend I had a little pain post op and Dave came up to my house multiple times to deliver me more pain relief drops and to change the lens plaster to improve the discomfort. 


Amazing service all round and would highly recommend Jersey Vision Correction if you’re thinking about getting laser eye surgery. Thank you for giving me my eyesight back!

Jon Pryor, Jersey

Best decision I’ve made in a long time, cannot fault Dave and Mark who were very informative and helpful. On the day I was in and out of the surgery within an hour, there was no pain, just a little discomfort while they healed but that was all explained to me and expected. Do it if you have the chance.

Once again thank you, Dave and Mark

Lil Longbottom, Jersey

One hundred percent the best thing I’ve ever done. I was nearly blind in my left eye & my right eye was going as well. I went to see Dave at Jersey Vision Correction and although he found that laser was unsuitable for me, along with his surgeon colleague Mark Wevill, he arranged for both me and my husband Ken to have lens implants. I can’t say enough how brilliant the staff were, I’m only 6 weeks in and it has already made a big difference in my life, I can see like a child again!

The best feeling in the world,  thanks again

Phil Gilley, Randalls Brewery, Jersey

Being able to see the fog without it being through foggy glasses… priceless!!

I often get out into the winds of whichever country I am visiting with one of my growing collection of cameras. The bad weather doesn’t deter me, in fact the opposite!

I used to be quite shortsighted (-5.00) so could only see clearly up to 20cm in front of my face without needing to use glasses. Gone are the days of wearing steamed up/ rained on/ slipped down my nose glasses. Now it’s just me, the elements and a camera!! To be spectacle free has given me SO much freedom! A renewed focus on my photographic hobby!!

I had my laser procedure in my lunch break, then back to work. It was quick and easy with only a couple of days of mild discomfort.

Dave, Mark and the team were brilliant, informative, calming, very professional- really wish I’d done it earlier.

Darren Troalic, Guernsey

I preferred to wear contact lenses but my eyes were irritable when wearing them for a number of hours. I had a consultation with Dave in Guernsey and he explained clearly that laser treatment was the type of surgery most appropriate for me. The surgery staff were helpful and the operation was quick and painless.


Following the operation there was sensitivity to light, slightly cloudy vision and mild discomfort, as had been explained to me. During the first night there was some mild pain in one eye but one drop of the anaesthetic drops soothed it. There was no pain thereafter and the light sensitivity subsided after a week or so. My vision became clearer over the days following the operation and I’m still surprised that my vision is so clear now. The post-operation appointments gave me comfort that the recovery was on track.


I’m really happy with the results and wish I had done it sooner.

Sam Dixon, Headteacher St.Peter's School. Jersey

Wish I’d done it years ago!! 
My husband had his eyes lasered at Jersey Vision Correction and raved about it so much that he persuaded me (somewhat reluctantly) to go along for a consultation. I had worn glasses since I was seven and gas permeable contact lenses since I was 16. I didn’t think they be able to help me as I believed my eyesight would be too bad for laser treatment. Dave Baker was so friendly from the start and put me completely at ease. He told me they couldn’t laser my eyes but they could correct my vision… by giving me lens implants! I was terrified by this prospect so at first discounted it. After some thought I decided to go back and make the arrangements. Everything was so well organised and professional. I had one trifocal lens implanted  on the Tuesday and the other on Thursday. The operation was painless and all done in about 15 minutes. My vision was almost perfect a few hours after having it done and I now don’t need glasses at all! The best bit being my vision shouldn’t  deteriorate over time so I won’t ever need reading glasses.         
A year post-op and I haven’t looked back… best money I have ever spent!!  No more messing around with lens solution or trying to find your glasses in the morning! Anyone who wears glasses should get it done! Absolutely life-changing!  Can’t recommend it highly enough! Thank you so much to Dave Baker and his team

In November 2016 I attended the Jersey Vision Correction Clinic and after a comprehensive examination Dave Baker recommended that my condition would benefit from an operation to replace the lenses of my eyes; giving me improved vision for both short and long vision. I agreed to this and the operation took place in December 2016. I am very pleased to say that the whole experience has been successful and with very little inconvenience to me. I am also impressed by the “before and after” care that was taken to ensure that the possibility of any complications that might arise would be avoided. I have no reasons not to recommend to any person who has eyesight problems to visit Mr. Baker at the Little Grove clinic and trust his advice.

Approximately 6 months ago I had both eyes corrected with laser at Jersey Vision Correction. The team explained every part of the procedure every step of the way and were fabulous at ensuring that my appointments were convenient for my family and work commitments.

The procedure was very quick, the room was not at all as I had feared. It was a calm atmosphere which helped to let me relax, not at all like a surgical operating theatre. Truthfully the most uncomfortable part of it was the initial placement of the eye shield, which just felt strange and slightly uncomfortable.

The anaesthetic drops worked a treat and while my eyes were being treated I felt no pain, I was only aware of a bright light and clicking sound for a few seconds on each eye. There was a slight smell of burnt hair for about a minute but absolutely no pain. The recovery room was restful and I was discharged with medication after being given full instructions on their use.

As the months have passed since the treatment I have been amazed at the vibrant colours I can see again as well the detail on photos, leaves on trees etc. which used to just blend in. With every month that passes the correction is stabilising and the headaches I used to have on a very regular basis have almost totally stopped. I would not have any hesitation to have this procedure done again in the years ahead if needed.

I have told people about the procedure and so far two friends have since found the benefit of laser. The benefits are amazing and it makes sense to make an appointment and see what they can do for you.

After putting off doing anything for years I finally plucked up the courage (eyesight -10 and -8.5 with astigmatism) and found after discussion with the JVC team that Implantable Contact Lenses would be most suitable.  The week my treatment took place was well set up and now just 4 weeks on I find waking up in the mornings without blindly searching for glasses is special.  All aspects of the treatment and care have been spot on and my sight is now better than 20:20.  Doesn’t get much better so thank you very much JVC.

Many thanks

Jean Robilliard, Guernsey

After wearing glasses for over 20 years I had seen an advert on television about having laser/lens replacements so I decided to phone Jersey Vision correction. I spoke with Jen who was very helpful and she arranged consultation with Optometrist Dave Baker in Guernsey. After examination he advised lens replacement, so arrangements were made with the surgeon Mark Wevill who explained procedure.

The left eye was done on one day then two days later the right eye was done. Both were done with no pain or discomfort at all. The Optometrist/Surgeon and nurses were all professional in their work and I am very happy with the results (and I love my new eyes).

Jasper Brennan, Jersey

I can’t thank Dave and the team enough,  I knew my eye site wasn’t the best and was never one to wear glasses so a friend recommend I go for a consultation,  which from day one Dave was terrific,  explained everything fully and did all the necessary tests,  I had the surgery two weeks later which was painless and over in no time at all,  the results are great!  I recommend anyone who is worried about their eye site to go for a consultation!

Many thanks

Aaron Foster, Jersey

I cannot recommend the procedure enough. The consultations with Dave were very thorough and everything was fully explained. The procedure itself only took five minutes and was completely painless. I only experienced minor discomfort while recovering and this only lasted for a few days. I still can’t believe how incredible my vision is now and it still seems to be improving over a year and a half later.

Anthony Queripel, Guernsey

Filled with confidence from my first consultation with Dave Baker I had no hesitation in going ahead with the LASEK procedure which was very quick and painless. After the recovery period my eyes continued to improve and I now have perfect vision. I am very happy I chose Jersey Vision Correction and would certainly recommend them for anyone thinking about laser eye surgery

Alannah Matthews, Jersey

From a young age I needed glasses and as a teenager I switched to contact lenses. However, I always dreamt of being able to enjoy my hobbies without the hassle of corrective lenses. I had often heard people talking about laser eye surgery, so I eventually bit the bullet and went for a free consultation. Everything from the cause of the short-sightedness I suffered, to the options available to me were fully and thoroughly explained. The procedure itself was painless and was over before I knew it. Within a week I had recovered and eight months later my eyes still seem to continue improving. My vision is now better than 20/20 and I cannot recommend the procedure enough.

Lucy Morris, Jersey

I can’t believe it took me so long to do this I wish I had done it years ago, the explanation of the procedure sounds way worse than the actual procedure is, it was all over in a matter of minutes and fully healed in weeks.  I think the best part for me is in the evening where previously being a contact lens wearer after a day in the office my eyes would be sore and dry and that in turn would make me feel tired, where now in a funny kind of way I feel more awake and less tired just because my eyes aren’t sore and I’m not straining to see 🙂 ….highly recommended!!!! 

Jess Dunsdon, Jersey

I had laser eye surgery by the team at Jersey Vision Correction 3 years ago and I have been thrilled with the results. My vision is better than 20/20, I recovered fully within a week and I’ve saved hundreds pounds through not having to buy contact lenses and glasses. The treatment was quick, painless and everything was explained in a clear and friendly manner. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Anthea Michael, St Helier

The team are great and I have nothing bad to say about my experiences with them. Jen (clinic manager) was really helpful and she didn’t mind me contacting her at any time to ask any silly questions. It is great how they offer a free consultation first, it means you don’t have to waste any money being told if you are suitable for the treatments or not. I strongly recommend people who are visually impaired to get laser done. The only regret I have is not having it done sooner!

Many thanks

Leanne Le Quesne, Jersey

I am a 45 year old woman who had LASEK surgery to correct my long distance vision. I had it done earlier this year and my only regret is having not done it years ago. In the last couple of years I was beginning to rely on wearing my reading glasses for my distance vision, ultimately meaning I would need two separate pairs of glasses. Since having the surgery I no longer need glasses for distance. I sometimes use pound shop +1 glasses for my pc and for reading in dim light. Dave Baker told me that this would be the case and I am happy to say the results were exactly what he said they would be. 

I no longer have to squint and squeeze my eyes to focus all the time. I can see everything so clearly. I can see sharp individual shapes and patterns rather than clusters of objects. I can actually see what my makeup looks like without having to look from behind glasses! I feel more confident and people can now actually see my face rather than just me wearing glasses. 

People spend so much on looking good. I am glad I spent a little bit more on feeling good! I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at Jersey Vision Correction for everything, before, during and after the surgery. From start to finish it was all just so simple. The surgery itself was totally pain free and the recovery was minimal with only slight grittiness and light sensitivity for a few days. Painkillers sorted that out. My 8 year old is desperate to have his eyes lasered and my promise to him is that as soon as he becomes of age it will be my priority to get his eyes lasered.
