Choosing to have my vision corrected at the Berkeley Eye Center was by far the best decisions that I have made. The staff maintains a level of professionalism and courtesy that far exceeds the standard norm. They provide detailed explanations of procedures and never exhibited the sales tactics often found in other offices. Essentially, the staff never seemed to pressure me into making any decision. In fact, they encouraged me to carefully consider my options before making any final decision. I found that this passive behavior relieved any apprehension that I had been feeling regarding this serious and life changing decision and allow me to focus on the details more effectively. From the moment you enter into the Berkeley Eye Center it is evident that customer service is the primary focus of this business. From day one, every appointment that I had started at the scheduled time. In fact, on several occasion I was seen early. This was such a comfort as I often find myself the victim of long waits at other doctor offices. I applaud the effective use of time management that Berkeley Eye Center employs. The actual surgery for correcting my visions was an overall success. While there was some slight discomfort immediately after the surgery, it quickly subsided. Though it has only been a month, my vision has continued to improve daily. I am still amazed at how effective the procedure was. Having relied on glasses and contact for over 15 years has made adjusting interesting. I find myself continually reaching up to adjust my glasses or venturing into the bathroom to remove my contacts at night. Considering that this is the only complaint I have found reinforces the fact that the Berkeley Eye Center is both an effective and practical option for correcting vision. I look forward to many more years of clear perfect vision and encourage any individual contemplating this procedure to schedule the free evaluation.

I recently got my LASIK done here on 4/29/2016. Doctor Spengler and his staff at the Corpus Christi location were excellent. From start to finish they answered every question provided loads of information and were friendly. Even after the procedure they continue to provide excellent service and willing to answer any question they won't just send you away. Here's a timeline of events 4/21/2016 Initial consultation and exam They do an initial screening and give you all the options available as well as the financial options. The lady explains the differences in procedures and asks which would you like, and discusses the entire process to you. I chose to proceed ASAP with LASIK and had a consultation with Dr. Spengler in a separate consultation. 4/26/2016 Second Consult 5 days later I returned were he reconfirms your eyes and the staff gets the "eyeprint" they use to treat your eyes. Confirmation of surgery day.

The service is as personal and friendly as it can be. The receptionist treated me better than what I would expect at the registration desk of a 5-star hotel. In contrast to any clinic, where you have to wait for a lengthy period of time before they put you in different rooms, the whole procedure was efficient. I actually didn't even mind staying there even longer because they serve you with good coffee and a variety of popular magazines that you can enjoy in one of their very comfortable couches. That's HEAVEN in the

Dr. Jack A. Sahadi
I saw an optometrist who told me I need to have my cataract removed right away. He sent me to a different surgeon and I was concerned because I felt like I was seeing fine. I am glad I saw Dr. Sahadi for a second opinion. He told me there was a little cataract and I could have it removed when I was ready but there was no rush. He spent the time with me to make sure I got a pair of glasses so I could see well. The staff was very caring and obviously very experienced. Thank you Dr. Sahadi!

I have been going to Bay Area Vision for several years. Dr. Walz and his staff are just great. Dr. Walz is very conscientious and professional. The staff has always been very friendly and work hard to get me in at a convenient time in my schedule. I have recommended Bay Area to several of my friends and co-workers all of whom have been very satisfied.

I had LASIK done yesterday and within a couple of hours I was seeing great. The process was very smooth and almost painless. The staff at the office was very good at explaining every step to me so that my anxiety would be less. Overall, I had an amazing experience and would recommend this procedure to anyone looking to get rid of glasses or contacts.

I've never experienced an office so pleasant. The entire process starting from my initial visit to the day I had cataract surgery. The staff made me feel as if I was the only patient they had. Always taking my calls, calling to make sure I received my meds & followed up with things that needed to be done on my part before surgery.

Tips & Advices
To find a professional that fits your needs and wants, look for an optometrist with the proper licensing and compliance with state-specific legalities as well as these qualities: attentiveness, ability to listen, ethics, compassion, ability to communicate effectively and willingness to spend time with patients.
Vision, like dental, is often an additional voluntary cost for employers who provide health care coverage. As a result, it may not be included in basic company-sponsored insurance. Those who do have access to this type of coverage - or Medicare - often only pay for a portion of their eye exam services.
The cost of an appointment with an optometrist varies based on the services required. While a typical eye exam can range from $50 to $250, depending on location. If if glasses or contact lenses are prescribed, or tests are needed, the overall expense of an optometrist visit can increase.
The American Optometric Association recommended that patients have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by another at 3 years old, and again at school age. At that point, Regular annual exams are recommended.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors that have received higher levels of training than both opticians and optometrists, and can also perform eye surgery when necessary. Opticians design and fit eyeglasses, frames, and lenses that are prescribed by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They do not perform vision tests or write prescriptions for visual aids. Optometrists fall between ophthalmologists and opticians. Optometrists can detect and treat eye abnormalities, prescribe lenses, and complete eye exams, but cannot perform eye surgery.
