To Our Valued Patients,

With the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, effective immediately, we will be suspending all non-urgent eye care. Moreover, any non-emergent or elective surgery will also have to be postponed. We will continue to remain open for patients with urgent and emergent concerns only. It is important to us to keep these patients out of the emergency room so our healthcare heroes on the front lines can be available for the patients that need them the most.

Our staff will continue to answer calls and scheduling appointments to the best of their ability.  In addition, if appropriate, Dr Patel can be available for telemedicine visits via online video chat. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine appointment with Dr. Patel, please call our office first to determine eligibility and to obtain an appointment time. Instructions for how to connect to the telemedicine appointment will be given at that time.

We hope to see you back in our office in the not too distant future. 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.
