"I trust and appreciate all that is done for me by Berks Eye Physicians. I really am grateful to Dr. Calder. I have recommended him to my Sister-in-Law and she had her cataracts taken care of by him. Thank you." — Jacqueline R.

“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.

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.

The entire staff goes out of their way to make patients like myself feel comfortable and they are all skilled at what they do.

During the COVID pandemic, they did everything right; compliance is 100%. I could tell that much thought went into their procedures. I saw Dr. Izzo for dry eye syndrome and then eventually cataract surgery. He was easy to relate to and answered all my questions. The instructions were complete and tailored to my conditions. Post-operative follow-up and coordination is just as complete. I had an excellent result and my vision is the best it's been in 20 years! – Patricia C.

I saw Dr. Izzo with the request that he help improve my vision, thinking that Lasik surgery was what I needed. I was wearing bifocal lens glasses and my vision was slowly worsening. After his exam he explained that I had cataracts and that lens replacement surgery would be my best option now and for the future. I am a dentist and getting the best possible result was critically important to me as my livelihood depends on excellent vision. Prior to the procedure I had an exhaustive list of questions and concerns. Dr. Izzo was awesome as he patiently answered all my questions to relieve my anxiety. He recommended multifocal replacement lens for me , explaining that , although they are not right for every patient, that I was a good candidate. The advantage is that they enable improved distance AND close up vision. The procedure was easier than I could have ever imagined. My eyes were done one week apart. He and his staff are most professional and friendly. The best part is that now, except for my loupes for close-up dental work, I don't wear any glasses. I can read the fine print, I can see the dashboard to drive and I can see distances. Truly there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about what a significant, life changing event this was, and I am grateful to Dr Izzo for both his patience and skill in providing this treatment for me. I have and will continue to refer my friends to Dr Izzo for their vision needs. – Robert D.

Excellent staff and I highly recommend Dr. Izzo. I had eye surgery Tuesday 7/21 and a post op visit today, my vision has already improved. I will be having a second eye surgery next Tuesday 7/28 and will not be needing glasses except maybe just for fine print reading. The staff and doctors are excellent and most of all they really care about the patients, this is the only staff I will trust my eye care too!
Thank you Dr. Izzo! – Donna C.

Dr. Izzo has been my primary eye physician ever since I needed glasses. During that time I cannot complain about any of the care I have received. I have had all my questions answered in a manner that anyone would understand. Recently had cataract surgery with great results. No longer need glasses. Would recommend Dr. Izzo and his group to anyone. – Jerry H.

About two years ago my optometrist told me I had cataracts. This came as a bit of a surprise since I had not noticed any decrease in vision. He recommended Berks Eye and, specifically, Dr. Izzo, to verify his diagnosis and to perform any surgery that was necessary. I scheduled my appointment and received the most comprehensive eye exam I have ever had. Once completed, Dr. Izzo recommended surgery and suggested toric lens implants. The appointments were made and the surgeries turned out to be quick, easy and painless. Now it is about two years later and I have 20/20 vision. I have not had 20/20 vision since I was 11 years old. I am now 66. I highly recommend Dr. Izzo and the others at Berks Eye. – Randall C.

I was referred to Dr. Izzo for cataract surgery by my optometrist. I was a little apprehensive and nervous during my first visit but found Dr. Izzo and his staff to be understanding and both willing and able to answer all my questions and to address my concerns. The cataract surgery procedure and the options I could choose from were explained very clearly so I felt comfortable making decisions that I felt would work best for me. Both my surgeries were successful and I am very happy with the results. Dr. Izzo and his staff were also great with follow-up calls after my surgeries including 3 calls from Dr. Izzo himself....one of which was on a Sunday afternoon. I found the care to be exceptional and my vision is definitely greatly improved. I definitely recommend Dr. Izzo. – Lucille F.

I am stunned with the positive results from my eye surgery which was performed by Dr. Izzo. He was a complete professional during the entire process and I will absolutely return if any eye problems occur in the future. – Phillip C.

Had recent cataract and glaucoma surgery done by Dr. Izzo. Always I was given choice of what eye meds to choose from the most expensive to the cheaper generic. Also, was given choice of what testing was to be done, especially those not covered by insurance. I am very happy with all results and would recommend this Dr. and the whole office staff to my family and friends. – Tom B.

Dr. Izzo is a very knowledgeable, professional & caring eye doctor complete with a charming personality. My experience with Dr. Izzo and his staff, at both his office & surgical center, made my eye surgery & laser an exceptional eye care experience. Everyone was punctual, friendly, caring & explained each procedure fully. I would recommend Dr. Izzo to all of my family, friends & anyone looking for the best in eye care! – Angie K.

My optometrist detected a cataract developing on my left eye and referred me to Berks Eye Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Calder said I could schedule surgery whenever I was ready. I wasn't in a real hurry to have an operation so I put it off. Over about a 2 year period my vision had noticeably declined so I made another appointment with Dr. Calder. No wonder my vision had gotten worse, now I developed a cataract in my right eye as well. Over a two week period both cataracts were removed and a stent was installed to reduce the pressure from glaucoma. - Edward G.

Doctor Calder is the best Doctor I have ever had. Over the course of my long life, I have had many and never had one that truly cares and wants to the very best for me. He called me, my husband and a friend I recommended several times after our surgeries. Actually, most recently about an hour before the Super Bowl, seriously what other Doc would do that? It was not a recorded call, a personal chat. He prides himself in having the best possible outcome for his patients. - Leona M.

I saw Dr Calder from Berks Eye Surgeons for my cataract surgery. He is an exceptional doctor. Their office is very professional and thorough.

I was referred by my eye doctor to see Berks Eye concerning my cataracts. Everyone there treated me so nicely. I met with Dr. Tellez with whom the cataract surgery was explained.

I would definitely recommend Berks Eye to my family and friends. – Peggy K.

Several years ago, Dr. Tellez performed cataract surgery, within a reasonable waiting period, on both my eyes. That went very well and I remain very pleased with the outcome.

Since that time I have returned several times for a checkup with Dr. Horst and made special appointments to evaluate a "floater" and after suffering a severe restriction in the width of my field of view. Dr. Horst has explained the "floater" to me very well and enabled me to rely on her monitoring the affected eye as well as my other eye. Dr. Horst was also able to accurately suggest what was happening with the severe restriction in in field of vision, suggesting I wait for 1/2 to one hour before moving as she believed I was having a migraine reaction and that it would clear up; she was right!

I now more fully recognize the importance of periodic eye checkups and I'm comforted knowing Dr. Horst is monitoring my aging process and providing excellent care from careful and attentive personable physicians. – Charles W.

I have my eyes examined on a yearly basis by Dr. Tellez.  He also completed cataract surgery on my right eye in 2006 and on my left eye in 2014.  He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner.

I usually don’t do reviews, but in December I went to have a routine eye exam. My eye doctor told me he needs me to go to a surgeon to have them take a closer look.  I walked in to Berks Eye and first impression was WOW this place is beautiful and then it’s OMG what is this going to cost me. I have to admit I was so scared and nervous and then I met Doctor Kasey L. Pierson he not only put my nerves to ease he explained what was going on with my eyes and what needed to be done well needless to say I needed cataract surgery he did both my eyes Dr. Pierson and the staff at Berks Eyes are great. – Maryann T.

Dr. Kasey Pierson, MD is an excellent doctor. He is very personable, thorough, professional, and compassionate. I have struggled for years with my vision and have been to many eye doctors and specialists. He finally diagnosed my problem and with simple surgery corrected my vision. It is a miracle after being told that I would not have any improvement. I am so grateful to him for taking the time to listen and diagnose my problem. He and his staff, as well as the entire Berks Eye staff, are fantastic and easy to work with. He is also very punctual but still takes time with the patient. I highly, highly recommend Dr Kasey Pierson! – Debbie B.

Dr. Pierson has made me realize how professional, caring, and generous a doctor can be. I am so thankful I was treated by him, and I have no complaint about anything. I have been going to Berks Eye for the past 4 years, and from the moment I enter the door, I am received with a smile. Currently, staff is being very helpful and compliant with Covid protocols. I am a Spanish speaking client and I have never experienced any mistreatment or discrimination. I recently had an eye surgery where nurses, assistants, and of course, Dr. Pierson made this a smooth and trustable process. I am indebted to these people. – Andrea O.

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.

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. I would tell people that if you are interested in pure convenience and want to get rid of contacts, cleaning glasses, etc. – if you’re active, ReSTOR® implants are great. This is a very friendly office – all of the staff is extremely professional and kind.” – Coleen M.

“I would like to say that I am extremely pleased!” -anonymous

“After having cataract surgery and lenses placed in my eyes I can see and read better than I could with glasses. The convenience of having the sight I had when I was young has made my life a real joy. And to be able to walk into any shop, pick up a great looking pair of sunglasses and walk out. Voila!” – anonymous

Friendly and professional service from the entire staff. My cataract surgery was very successful. — Bruce S.

Already have recommended an elderly gentleman for cataract surgery, which he had done and very pleased with the results. — William M.

Excellent !!! I can see great after cataract surgery — Geralyn C.

I wish I was more prepared as to what to expect for entire exam. It ran close to three hours but I know my eye health was explored very thoroughly. It's not every day a patient is told they need cataract surgery, so I do appreciate the painstakingly completeness of exam. — Joan N.

Very pleased with the service we received. My husband and I both use Berks Eye Physicians & Surgeons. From eye exams to cataract surgery the finest care was given. Doug & Donna Miller — Donna M.

I have been a patient with Berks Eye for quite a number of years. In previous years my visits were for annual eye exams and glasses. However since January of this year I have had bilateral cataract surgeries and YAG procedures. I am extremely pleased with my care before, throughout and after my surgeries and procedures. — Mary Lou K.

The purpose of my visit was to get a second opinion re: surgery for cataracts, glaucoma and an astigmatism. All staff were personable and informative. The tests (some of which I had not had before) moved along as quickly as possible. I was impressed with the Dr's knowledge, his experience and warmth to the point that I decided to switch my surgery from my previous MD to Berks Eye. — Sally B.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Doctor took his time and I did not feel rushed. All my concerns were addressed and questions answered. Was given a packet of information for cataract surgery and time to digest it all in order to make the best decision. Calls were returned in timely manner. Came here after poor treatment at another eye surgeon's office ad was recommended by friends. Five stars — Lisa B.
