To Our Valued Patients,

With the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and under the guidelines of the Health Officer of the Alameda and Contra-Costa Counties, we will begin the process of re-opening our offices on Monday May 4th in order to provide needed eye and vision care. Moreover, cataract and all other non-cosmetic surgical procedures will soon resume.

Please keep in mind that in order to maintain social distancing protocols and to limit further transmission of the virus, we will be working with a reduced staff and seeing a fewer number of patients as compared to our “normal” schedule. Priority will be given to the most urgent medical cases. We will be implementing a number of measures (including altered check-in/check-out procedures, limiting the number of patients in the office and waiting room, face covering for all persons, temperature screening, etc) that will change your experience in the office. In addition, we will be ramping up our already strict disinfection policies and we will continue to monitor and abide by all local, state and, federal guidelines. Please bear with us through this new reality as these changes are designed to protect you and our staff.

We hope to see you soon and appreciate your trust in us to continue to meet your eye care needs. Stay safe and stay healthy!

The Turner Eye Institute Team

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.
