Increasing treatment of keratoconus in San Francisco Bay Area

More and more patients from Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, and Concord are undergoing treatment for keratoconus with Dr. Stephen Turner. Since obtaining FDA approval for intacs for treating keratoconus, patients with keratoconus are now seeking help from one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most experienced corneal surgeons, Dr. Stephen Turner.

At one time, patients with keratoconus were forced to use either hard contact lenses or they had to undergo a corneal transplant. The hard contact lenses were often uncomfortable and even worse could hasten the need for a corneal transplant. With newer treatments, such as intacs, patients with keratoconus are now receiving medical care to strengthen their corneas more quickly and might be able to avoid the need for a corneal transplant.

Dr. Turner has performed hundreds of procedures for patients with keratoconus in the San Francisco Bay Area at his clinics in Concord, San Leandro, San Jose, and San Francisco. These procedures are very important in improving the eyesight of people with keratoconus.
