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!

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK)

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) is a noninvasive procedure which utilizes radiofrequency energy to correct presbyopia and low hyperopia with or without astigmatism and now can be used at the Turner Eye Institute to correct astigmatism associated with keratoconus. It can also be used to correct residual refractive error after laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) or cataract surgery.

CK for patients with keratoconus allows Dr. Patel to correct regular and irregular astigmatism by strategically placing the probe in certain spots of the cornea. The result allows for an easier fitting of contact lenses and also improving the spectacle correction (vision with glasses).
