Berkeley Eye Center - Clear Lake
Berkeley is wonderful. Doctor Hall is very patient and answers all questions. The office staff are great and appointments are usually prompt. They were a great support system when I had my cataract surgery as I called once after hours and they returned the call promptly. I have gone through hard contacts, soft contacts, and now glasses with them and have always been pleased with the care. I’ve worn glasses or contacts since I was 5 years old so my eyes are very precious to me.

I recently had my annual check-up at this location. It was my second visit to Berkeley Eye Center. Like my first visit, everyone was so personable. It was very refreshing to have genuine smiles and greetings doing such a routine task such as this. Dr. Alven and her assistant were so thorough in describing everything regarding the various tests and my sight. I would recommend this location and Dr. Alven to anyone!

For years I've dreaded the ordeal of selecting new eye glasses frames. Recently I had cataract surgery on one eye and needed extra help and patience from the professional staff at Berkeley. They delivered! Janis Olmo was professional, courteous, patient and found the right frame for me. Thank you!

This Spec's accepted a false credit card on June 21, 2017 for $147.18 by a counterfeit card using my identity. Could have been caught with a minimum of effort to confirm identity of customer presenting card.

Dr. Hollas was very professional. He spent time with me explaining my son and stepdaughter's diagnosis as well as my own. He gave me several options for treatment. Our optician Janis was very helpful as well in explaining our eyewear options. Our glasses arrived sooner than promised. Great experience!

The Houston Shops location with their extremely warm Staff and professionalism I had a great experience. Dr. A. Alven was amazing. The ladies made picking my glasses painless, the lady wearing red frames. Thanks for making my visit great!!
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.
