Dr. Kasey L Pierson did a wonderful job throughout my both eye surgeries. I am highly recommending him. Ty Kasey!- Joe S.
Stop your search and go see Dr. Pierson!!
Eyes and surgery in the same sentence should be scary! But it wasn't - not for ONE MINUTE! Dr. Pierson made the whole process easy to understand and explained everything so there were no surprises. When I asked my friends about cataract surgery, they all said the procedure was a breeze but the post op drops for four weeks were the worst part. Dr. Pierson even made THAT easy with a compounded drop combining the three into one. EASY!! It's unusual to get a great surgeon with a great personality but you'll have BOTH with this guy!
It's AMAZING how much of the world I had been missing as the cataracts grew. The colors and details I can now see are incredible. What I didn't expect to get back was confidence - to drive at night again, to wear make up now that I could see to put it on again, to wear awesome sunglasses again, and to look people in the eye again!
Thanks Dr. Pierson!!- Robin S.

Dr. Pierson promptly returned my phone call even though I was a patient of another practice. He listened, offered appropriate advice, called in a prescription & even offered to come in at any time to the office if I felt my eye was getting worse.

I was so happy to be seen the day that I called for the appointment. It was the first time I met Dr. Pierson. Liked him instantly.

On January 27th, I experienced symptoms of possible retinal detachment. I immediately called Berks Eye (I'm an established patient of Dr.s Izzo and Bronner, both of whom I have the utmost confidence in). I was given an appointment the same day with Dr. Kasey Pierson (Dr. Bronner, the retinal specialist, was not working that day). I'd never met Dr. Pierson before, but was pleased with his relaxed, warm "bedside" manner and professionalism. I left the office feeling reassured and comfortable. Thanks, Dr. Pierson!- Jessica S.

I am new patient to the practice. I have dealt with 15 years of red painful eyes that affected my everyday life. I have seen numerous eye specialists over the many years with no clear diagnosis or treatment course until I became a patient of Berks Eye Physicians & Surgeons. Dr Kasey Pierson, a corneal specialist, was able to diagnose my condition and customized an aggressive treatment plan that finally corrected my problem. After so many specialists and years of suffering, I assumed it was something I would have to live with for the rest of my life, but I just needed to find the right physician. I cannot say THANK YOU enough. He is kind and personable with a wonderful bedside manner. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and explained my condition and treatment plan in detail. Dr Pierson and the entire staff are all amazing. The office is clean and all COVID precautions have been taken to ensure patient safety. On time appointments - no long wait times. Berks Eye Physicians & Surgeons is the place to go if you have any eye related issues.- Chad R.
