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

Cost for Keratoconus Treatment

Cost for keratoconus treatment can vary greatly depending on the best option for the individual patient. Since treatments range from glasses and contact lenses (several hundred dollars) to a corneal transplant (many thousands of dollars) it is difficult to suggest one cost for keratoconus treatment. While cost is certainly an important factor in each person’s decision, as with all vision treatments, it is more important to seek the best possible treatment.

The first step is to undergo a complete eye exam from a corneal specialist, such as Dr. Stephen Turner. This doctor can then advise which treatments offer the highest likelihood for success and which stand the best chance of providing comfortable and usable vision.

Once the best treatment has been determined, the patient can be advised of the cost for keratoconus treatment. Turner Eye Institute has been serving San Francisco and the Bay Area for over 30 years and offers a reasonable cost for keratoconus treatment as well as other forms of refractive surgery, such as LASIK and PRK as well as cataract surgery.
