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.

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!

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!

Best decision I've made in a long time, cannot fault Dave and Mark who 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

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

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.

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.

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

15th and 17th March- 2016

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).

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!

Aaron Foster, Jersey

2-Nov-2015

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

16-Oct-2015

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

11-Aug-2015

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
19-June-2015

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!

Debbie Dewhurst, St Helier

I would absolutely recommend Jersey Vision Correction. If I can do it, anyone can. I am incredibly squeamish about my eyes but they managed to put me at ease. The team were very professional, patient and good humoured. I couldn't recommend them more highly. 

Richard Amy, St Lawrence

I recommend Jersey Vision Correction because the team are really experienced, caring and reassuring. I think everyone who needs glasses should get it done and change their life for the better.

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.

I don’t know why I waited so long before having the LASEK surgery. Life is better without the hassle of glasses. The procedure is not so bad, fully recovered within a couple of weeks and the team at Jersey Vision Correction were excellent both before, during and after the surgery.

Mark Shaw, Jersey
19-May-2014

I opted to have the lens implant surgery last October and must say that the difference is amazing.  I was very long sighted (+9.00) with astigmatism (-4.00) which meant that contacts didn't quite work and laser treatment was out of the question. Being fairly sporty I wanted to rid myself of glasses.  The results are quite amazing.  Day to day my sight is great with only glasses needed for reading. The team looking after me were faultless and the procedure simple and painless with immediate results. After-care too was superb and I am now the proud owner of my first pair of non prescription sunglasses!

Jill Bradley, Jersey

For years I had been dependant on ready readers and eventually found myself on +3. I eventually plucked up the courage to visit Jersey Vision Correction to find out my options. After a very comprehensive consultation I was pleased to discover I would be a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. On the day of the procedure everything was checked again & the whole process was explained step by step so I knew what to expect at every stage. The follow up checks have been thorough and four months on there is no need for me to return.

I am absolutely delighted with the results, it’s even better than I expected. I would say to anyone thinking about having it done – go for it, it will change the way you look at the world

Angela Stephens, Jersey

02-May-2014

I had worn glasses since the age of 9 and had tried contact lenses but found them irritating and gave up. I had resigned myself to spending the rest of my years waking up to a blurry world. I had considered laser surgery 12 years ago but had been told I was not a suitable candidate for it at that time.

I was pleasantly surprised when I was advised by Dave Baker, Optometrist, that due to advances in the procedure, I could be treated. I pondered for a further year before finally committing to the surgery, as I was worried that it would be painful and I would not be able to drive for ages afterwards. I finally plucked up the courage to go for the surgery.

I arranged a further appointment with Dave who explained all about the surgery and what I should expect, so I felt quite reassured, and it was no where near as bad as I had expected. The treatment itself was nothing to worry about, as I did not feel a thing. I expected my eyes to be really sore afterwards, but I was given lots of eye drops to alleviate the discomfort, and can honestly say that they watered for about an hour in the evening when the anaesthetic drops wore off, but then settled down again. I have experienced worse pain from having grit on my contact lenses. I was not worried by the occasional twinge of discomfort as Dave had advised me this might happen.

It was such a novelty being driven away from the clinic and being able to see clearly and read number plates of cars, without glasses or lenses. I avoided driving for a week, until I had my follow-up appointment with Dave and was reassured that my vision met the legal standard for driving. I have had a further "check-up" and all remains well.

I also wish to thank Jen Castle, the first point of contact at the clinic, as she has always been friendly and patient with me when I have swopped and changed my appointments, and the surgeon and nurses were excellent as well.

My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner!

Having laser eye correction was the one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The results have transformed my every day life. The team at Jersey Vision Correction were professional, thorough and approachable during the entire process, from the initial consultation to the post operative check-ups. The actual operation itself was quick and painless with the positive results being noticeable almost immediately. I would recommend anyone considering laser eye surgery to get in touch and book a consultation with Jersey Vision Correction.

I had laser eye surgery late 2013, I was nervous but the team were very professional and knowledgeable and put my fears to rest. I was well cared for before and after treatment by the team at Jersey Vision Correction Clinic and they did an amazing job. It was no doubt the one of the best decisions of my life and I love the freedom of not having to wear glasses or contact lenses. I would highly recommend laser treatment with Jersey Vision Correction Clinic, they provide an excellent service.

Martin Mallet, Jersey

I've always hated the fact that I needed glasses/lenses and it has been a life goal of mine to rid myself of the necessity. After one great trip to see what it was all about any fears I had were waylaid. Now a month after the surgery my vision is better than I ever remember even with glasses! My thanks go out to everyone involved for such a smooth, quick and brilliant service.

Tania Paul, St.Brelade, Jersey
10-May-2011

I had LASEK treatment late last year, and can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever done. The team were fantastic, very friendly and professional. Pre-op care was excellent, but they excelled themselves with my post-op care. A huge thank you to the team, and to anyone who is considering a procedure.. go for it! The best thing is wearing non-prescription sunglasses and not having to carry two pairs around with you!

Julie Bennington, Guernsey
14-Apr-2011

I just wanted to put a few words together to thank you all for the excellent service that I received earlier this year, and for all the people that may have any questions about having this procedure.

Having considered laser eye surgery for a while now I was more than intrigued when I saw an advert for Jersey Vision Correction. It sounded much easier for me than having to travel to the UK so I booked a “Free Consultation”. When I arrived I found everybody to be very friendly and after a my initial chat with Dave I took a seat for the relevant eye checks, I must admit I have never had so many thorough checks all in a day! Dave reassured me all the way and answered all the questions that I had for him, I was more than happy with the answers. I decided that this was the way forward for me and afterwards I sat with Jen and booked the appointment for the Lasek treatment! I was given all the instructions I needed for the preparation of my procedure day – this day could not have come quick enough!

On the day of my surgery I was a little apprehensive of what was really going to happen but I was reassured all the way through the procedure, I can honestly say there was nothing to it, it was all over so quickly and without any discomfort and pain! I left the clinic with a post operative instruction list - along with my eye-drops and Jen kept in contact with me on a daily basis making sure everything was alright. I found the whole team to be really helpful in every possible way. I travelled back to Guernsey within 2 hours of having the surgery and within a day began to see the world again in a different light! I went back to work within 2 days and I can honestly say it’s the best thing I have ever done, to be able to see properly again is fantastic and has made my life so much better, I would highly recommend this to anybody contemplating having it done! I can only thank everybody that was involved!

Once again thanks so much for giving me the ability to see again – you have changed my world!

Lorraine Ogier, Guernsey
13-Apr-2011

WOW! How amazing. After being dependent on glasses all my life to have the freedom to see everything without aid is truly incredible. I'd like to thank everybody involved, they were all so friendly explaining everything and putting me at ease. To have this in the Channel Islands is the best thing ever, no travelling back and forth to the UK saves on the pocket. Once again thank you and I would recommend the treatment to anybody. Trust me, you will be amazed by the outcome!

Robin Le Feuvre, Guernsey

I had the LASEK surgery on 8th April after thinking about it for the last few years. I have worn glasses for 20+ years and couldn't stand contact lenses. I have spoken to a fair few people who have had their eyes done and all of them told me to do it.

It wasn't until I came across Jersey Vision Correction that I seriously considered it. I went for the tests at the Guernsey clinic, all free and easy, and I was told I could get my eyes corrected in three days time if I wished! Panic set in and I looked up eye surgery forums on the internet, I wish I hadn't as they make it sound like torture! I was, to say the least, a bit put off, so I spoke to a few people and to Jen (at Jersey Vision Correction) and decided to book it.

They sort out the flights to Jersey, you just have to get a taxi to the clinic. I met with Jen, Dave and Professor Shah, had a few more tests and then it was into the surgery for the operation. You lie down, get anaesthetic drops, asked if you are ready and then it begins. My right eye took 1 minute and my left slightly less. The surgery is very quick and professional and comfortable(unbelievably!). Then it's a cup of tea, quick rest and taxi back to the airport and back to Guernsey.

I was given lots of medication for the weekend and a 24 hour phone number, just in case of discomfort. With my surgery I had to have protective contact lenses in for 4 days and I have now had them removed back at the Guernsey clinic. I have had no pain and very little discomfort and I can see!

Definitely the best money I have ever spent and I am looking forward to perfect sight with no aids. In all a highly professional team of people and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

The funniest thing happened yesterday, I went to buy some new make-up at St Brelades, I told the girl that I'd had eye correction done and fancied a new look , she was so excited to know how I'd got on, she ended up giving me a make over. Her collegue also wanted to know all about it and while I was paying for the makeup she was on the phone to book an eye test for them both. I can honestly say this is the best thing I've done. It's so nice to be able to see without glasses.

Marion Minier, St.Peter, Jersey
22-Nov-2010

I recently underwent corrective eye surgery in Jersey at the Little Grove Clinic, the procedure was totally painless and throughout the event I was thoroughly supported by the excellent team at the clinic.

I was so delighted when on my return home I was able to read small newsprint without spectacles. I had reduced vision for the last 10 years and never imagined that I would be able to read without spectacles.
 
I would recommend this to everyone and I can't thank the team enough

Debbie Manners, St.Martins Primary School, Jersey
28-Sep-2010

The team at Jersey Vision Correction are both friendly and professional. I booked my free consultation after years of thinking about about it. This consultation put my mind at ease and filled me with reassurance. So much so that I left my consultation with a date for my treatment.

The treatment was quick and painless and I was well looked after. I was amazed how fast the laser procedure was and was then taken for crosslinking. This was also pain-free and quick, in fact I didn't have time to listen to the songs I had prepared on my playlist on my iPod!

The aftercare is of the highest standard and I would highly recommend anybody thinking about having laser eye surgery to have a consulation. I no longer have to wear glasses or lenses and can see the alarm clock without having my nose pressed to it! It really is the best thing I have ever done, only wish I had done it sooner!

Stephen Holley, Jersey
25-Aug-2010

As I’d previously had a bad experience having a cataract removed in my right eye, I was reluctant to have my left eye treated. Jersey Vision Correction put me completely at ease during my initial consultation, and as a result, I was happy to go ahead with the treatment.

The treatment itself was done quickly and professionally. My home care requirements were explained clearly to me and my post-operative consultations have closely monitored my eye improvement.

The overall experience has been fantastic. I would definitely recommend Jersey Vision Correction to my family and friends.

Aimee Anderton, Social Security, Jersey
24-Aug-2010

Having laser surgery has changed my life! I am over the moon I had it done and want to thank the team (especially Jen and Dave) immensely for all their help and support throughout my treatment. They made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I'd recommend to have laser surgery done at any stage of their life.

Victoria Burns, Guernsey
20-Aug-2010

I was becoming really frustrated with wearing reading glasses, I was taking them off all of the time, even to see prices in shops. I had the presbyopic laser treatment and went out for dinner the same night. The treatment was painless and I can't believe how well I can now read without glasses.

I hated glasses and then I couldn’t wear my contact lenses due to an eye infection. Now I can see clearly without either. I’m 100% happy.

Alexsis Wintour, KPMG, Jersey

It’s such a timesaver not having to search for my glasses anymore, and of course it’s wonderful to be able to see so clearly for the first time in my life.

Michael Balston, Soditec, St.Helier

Start life again? Vastly more convenient than contacts or glasses. Reassuring, knowledgeable and competent specialists soothe inevitable initial nervousness. Pain free with minimum discomfort, results exceeded expectations, wish I had been brave enough to have the treatment years ago. Thoroughly recommended

Jody Whittingham, Side-on Brand Communicators, Jersey

My vision is now perfect! After living most of my life not even being able to see across the other side of the room without my contacts in it's such an amazing feeling being able to see clearly as soon as I open my eyes each morning.
