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!

What’s New in San Jose LASIK

San Jose LASIK Centers are among the most advanced in the world. Among the best of these LASIK centers is Turner Eye Institute. New advances in the LASIK technology that are being used by Turner Eye Institute in San Jose include Iris Registration and Custom Wavefront LASIK. In addition to these technologies, San Jose residents can also perform pre-operative testing at the LASIK Center in San Jose for Visian, Crystalens, and other advanced procedures.

During Iris Registration, the wavefront device creates a map of the iris. This iris map is then utilized by the laser in order to improve centration and improve the accuracy of the treatment. If the eye rotates, then the entire treatment is rotated to match it correctly. This is especially important for people with astigmatism or other aberrations that can be misaligned.

Wavefront LASIK measures an eye’s optical aberrations to a higher level of detail than was possible previously. In addition to near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism, we can now measure and correct other aberrations that affect vision. Also known as custom LASIK, wavefront LASIK has a possibility of correcting vision to be better than with contact lenses or glasses. In San Jose, Wavefront LASIK provides the best opportunity for excellent vision with contact lenses or glasses.

San Jose residents can also consider other surgeries beside LASIK or other laser vision correction. Dr. Turner offers treatments for cataracts as well as problems with reading or even high prescriptions that are not considered to be good LASIK candidates. Dr. Turner is the only surgeon in San Jose who performs the Visian implantable contact lens. The visian ICL lens can correct prescriptions that are outside the range of LASIK and in some cases provides better vision than LASIK for certain patients.

If you are a San Jose resident interested in LASIK, contact Turner Eye Institute through their web site or by telephone. While San Jose LASIK Centers can offer many of the same services as Turner Eye Institute, no San Jose LASIK surgeon has the experience, results, and specialized care that Dr. Turner provides.
