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, our offices are open to provide eye and vision care.

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!

Dr. JoAnn Dahlkoetter loves her Crystalens surgery

Dr. JoAnn Dahlkoetter, clinical psychologist for many Olympic Athletes, returned again to Turner Eye Institute. She loves her new Crystalens surgery and reports being able to see both up close and far away. The new crystalens eye surgery replaces cataract surgery in many patients and allows patients to see at many distances. Dr. Turner has performed hundreds of crystalens procedures and has had remarkable results with this new FDA approved technology. Crystalens replaces the natural lens inside the eye with a new lens that can focus at a variety of distances. Turner Eye Institute congratulates Dr. JoAnn and wishes her luck with her new vision. We congratulate her for the success of the athletes that she coached in Turin. Her “Your Performing Edge” system has brought success to many people.
