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

Keratoconus treatment with adaptive optics

New technology using adaptive optics is beginning to influence new treatments for keratoconus. Wavefront guided corrections have shown advantages in correcting optical aberrations that are caused by the corneal distortions occuring during keratoconus. We can expect that as researchers develop new treatments for keratoconus that they will be using the advanced measuring capabilities that are now available because of adaptive optics.

Keratoconus creates measurable optical distortions that can be corrected using specialized contact lenses. As these advanced contact lenses become more accurate in addressing the refractive errors, we can expect to see improved vision in patients with keratoconus.

Scientists are discovering new and better methods of measuring the optical aberrations and their effects on a patient’s vision. With the improvement in technology, we can expect improvements in treatment options.
