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!

Eye Care

General Eye Care

Eye care is extremely important to everyone and not just people in need of treating keratoconus. It is recommended that each person (regardless of whether they wear glasses or not) visit an eye doctor at least once every 2 years and more often in many cases.

People with diabetes or other systemic diseases must see their eye doctor even more frequently to ensure adequate eye care. People with keratoconus must also see their eye doctor on a more frequent basis. Talk to your eye care professional to find out how often you should be examined to be certain of the best possible eye care possible.

The quality of your care also depends on the skills of your surgeon: Dr. Turner is specially trained in treating eye diseases and performing surgery on the eye. Together, his years of general eye care, specialized corneal and refractive experience, and the dedication of a well-trained team ensure you of the absolute best possible visual outcome.

In addition to refractive surgery, Turner Eye Institute offers solutions for most general eye care needs.
