Berkeley Eye Center - Brenham
My visit this morning Dr. Rachael Cook in Brenham was for me a very comforting experience. Being a patient of Dr. Ralph Berkeley for many, many years I had concerns changing doctors because I moved from Houston. I was excited to see they had a new eye center now in Brenham so it was convenient for me to go there. Knowing Dr. Berkeley for so many years and knowing he only has the very best in his group, I still didn't now what to expect.What a blessing to meet Dr Cook, she was so through, explained everything in layman terms, was beyond patient with me and certainly knowledgeable about the issues I have begun to experience at my age. I will certainly tell all of my friends about the Center alnd Dr. Cook. Thank you again Dr. Berkeley for sharing your years of expertise by picking the very best to staff your facility.

Dr. Cook's staff very professional. I went in feeling a little apprehensive since this was my first visit in the office that had been under another opthamologist. They wasted no time getting me set up as a new patient. All tests carried out efficiently getting me ready to visit with Dr. Cook. After reading some of the items on my chart(done by my previous opthamologist) she discussed my eye health and the possibility of my second cataract surgery. I was very pleased with the time she took to explain certain parts of the procedure. I will recommend her.

My experience with Dr. Rachel Cook was friendly and patient she explained in depth the needs and care for my eyes. Also I took my mother for an exam with Dr. Cook and she was so very kind explaining in detail how Mom was to care for her eyes what to watch for as her situation progressed. I am extremely impressed with Dr. Cooks knowledge and the time she dedicates to each of her customers. Every patient I have spoken with in our small community is so very pleased to have Dr. Cook's services here.

Super Great! I had been waiting for Dr. Cook to arrive and begin being my doctor! So happy that Berkeley, and Dr. Cook chose Brenham! Her training background is so impressive. Her desire to earnestly explain what she sees in your eyes' history, and what needs to be done or does not need to be done is heartwarming.Very easy to talk to. When you leave her office you feel so good about being under her care. Love all the staff members as well.

Dr Rachel Cook performed cataract lense replacement surgery in both eyes (3 weeks apart) Both were extremely successful. I can see better than I really ever remember seeing. I had some pressure complications which she diagnosed correctly immediately and changed my eye drops ... In my opinion Dr Cook really knows her business and I have no problem recommending her to freinds

I saw Dr. Cook for and eye exam and prescription for contact lenses. I then ordered my lenses through her office and it was much cheaper than 1-800-contacts!! The care was awesome and my contacts fit great and she even adjusted my prescription to improve my vision. She is great and so nice and caring! They have a loyal patient now for sure!! Highly recommend her.

Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
