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!

Successful Treatments for Keratoconus

The new Corneal Crosslinking treatment with Riboflavin has shown success since being introduced by Dr. Stephen Turner in Northern California. Recent studies are showing that Riboflavin treatment followed by UV light can improve the cornea with keratoconus.

Patients with keratoconus should consult with a corneal specialist ophthalmologist regarding their condition. The doctor might advise Corneal crosslinking treatment with riboflavin or might suggest intacs. Many surgeons have used both with good results.

Dr. Stephen Turner practices in the San Francisco Bay area and is a corneal specialist who treats patients with keratoconus. He has offices in San Francisco, San Leandro (in the East Bay near Oakland), Concord (near Walnut Creek), and San Jose. Patients interested in discussing their vision needs should contact Turner Eye Institute for an appointment.
