What Our Cataract Patients Say

Berks Eye Physicians & Surgeons, Ltd.
Domenic C. Izzo, M.D. - Cataract Testimonials

“My cataract/lens implant surgery with Dr. Izzo was very quick, no pain, nothing scary – the next day I was able to see better than I have in years. Now I can see almost anything without my strong reading glasses! The surgery was very easy, they have done it thousands of times. I always said nothing you get is ever as good as what you were born with, but with this procedure I think I may have shot my theory!” – June M.

A wonderful doctor corrected my vision through [implantable] lenses after removing my cataracts. He is one of the best in the world, I would recommend him 110 percent. I am more than satisfied and no longer look for my glasses because my vision is perfect! Thank you Dr. Izzo and staff.” – John H.

“My cataracts were removed and a multi-focus lens was placed in each eye. Before my cataract surgery I had to switch back and forth between glasses and contacts. Dr. Izzo told me I was a good candidate for this surgery. There was a little apprehension when I first went in for the first eye to be done, but I have suffered no pain, I had no discomfort, after both eyes were done, my vision is perfect, what it used to be when I was younger. Glad I had it done I would recommend Dr. Izzo. The best part of it is no more glasses or reading glasses – things are back to normal and I would do it again.” – George J.

Five years ago a miracle happened to my sight. I had cataract surgery done by Dr. Domenic Izzo, Jr., a great surgeon and a caring doctor. He used ReSTOR® implantable lenses for me. I wore glasses for 53 years of my life. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful these lenses are and how much I love seeing and reading without glasses. Thank you very much, Dr. Izzo! – Nancy L.

Dr. Izzo is very thorough at every visit. He explains everything in detail. He is pleasant, professional, and efficient, yet I never felt my visits were hurried. All surgery and follow-up appointments were handled efficiently. Thanks to Dr. Izzo’s skill, I now have perfect vision and only need glasses sometimes for reading. – Patricia C.

Dr. Izzo is so wonderful, my vision after cataract surgery is excellent. I got the Symfony lens and I don’t need glasses for almost anything. I felt so calm and confident in the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Izzo. He is a highly skilled physician and I can’t give him enough praise. Surgery is scary and he took the time and explained everything. – Kathleen L.

My vision is better than I expected. After 35 years of glasses, I now only need “cheaters” thanks to Dr. Izzo. – Patrick D.

Thank you Dr. Izzo for my successful cataract surgeries. Goodbye contacts and reading glasses! I was very impressed by the thoroughness, professionalism, and courtesy of the staff in both the surgery center and the main office. The entire process was pleasant from beginning to end. If you are looking for excellent eye care, I highly recommend Dr. Izzo and the team and Berks Eye! - Nancy H.

Living life not being able to see was very hard. I am so grateful and blessed to have such a great doctor to help me see and enjoy life again. I would highly recommend Dr. Izzo to all my friends and family. - Sheila S.

I have had cataract surgery and the LipiFlow procedure for dry eyes. Now, several weeks later, my vision is better than ever! - David L.

My cataract surgery went very smoothly and made quite an improvement in my visual acuity. I had no problems and no pain. The process was well explained in advance and I would definitely recommend the procedure to friends. – Robert Y.

Dr. Izzo thoroughly explained my cataract surgery, and patiently listened and answered my questions. The surgery was completely painless. I now can finally read the small print going across my television! - Linda B.

Dr. Izzo tritely cares about each of his patients. He took the time to explain my cataract surgery. I chose to have the Toric lens implant and am delighted with the results. My vision is now 20/20 and I can see things clearly once again! - Margaret P.

I have been a patient at this practice for about 34 years and will not go anywhere else. Doctor Izzo is very thorough and knowledgeable. — Larry J.

Berks Eye and Doctor Izzo are simply the Best! I went yesterday for my annual checkup after having lens implanted last year. Cataracts are gone. Vision is 20/20 both eyes. I have not seen this good since my teens. A real Blessing to not need to have glasses at all. I can see great, close and far. — David E.

Dr Izzo spent time educating and explaining to me in detail what Cataract surgery involves. He is professional and courteous and he made me feel reassured regarding my scheduled surgery. — Margaret F.

My first experience at Berks Eye was in July 2020. I felt very safe with the office procedures and arrangements to keep all patients safe from Covid 19. I met very friendly personnel each step of the visit from front desk, to technicians to Dr. Izzo! Berks Eye was not the first office I visited this year in pursuit of cataract surgery. My first experience was at a very big, well known eye center in the Reading area. My experience at this "big" eye center was not as friendly, cordial or patient centered like Berks Eye. I had a very positive experience having cataract surgery. I have recommended Berks Eye to several friends. Thank you Berks Eye for your professionalism, expertise, friendliness and caring approach to patient centered care. You deserve to be #1 in eye care in Berks County. — Gloria H.

When I went for an eye exam to get fitted for new glasses the last thing I expected to hear was "Before you can be fitted for glasses you need to have your cataract taken care of."

He and the staff there did a great job and now I can see a big improvement in my vision. Thanks Berks Eye! — William S.

Berks Eye Physicians & Surgeons – Cataract Testimonials

It was very comfortable, quick and painless. After the first surgery I looked forward to getting my other eye done. I had ReSTOR® implants put in, and it’s wonderful. I am a gardener so I found glasses to be annoying especially sweating in the heat.

This is a very friendly office – all of the staff is extremely professional and kind.” – Coleen M.
