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!

Crystalens Available in San Jose

People in San Jose often wonder what the newest procedure is that is available. San Jose residents ask if there is a way to get rid of reading glasses. They also want to know if science will have cure the need for cataract surgery. Crystalens is one option that many people don’t know about.

Previous to crystalens, vision correction surgery (including cataract surgery) did not assist a patient in focusing at both near and far. LASIK would allow near vision if the patient was young enough (under 40) or if a technique called monovision was used. Unfortunately, not everyone can have LASIK and in cases where cataracts are a problem, LASIK cannot fix a person’s vision problems.

With Crystalens, San Jose patients have a better option. Crystalens has a hinge which allows for the patient to focus naturally at near and far. This unique construction is FDA approved and has been used for years to help patients suffering from presbyopia or cataracts. It is also used for patients with near-sightedness or far-sightedness when safety is a concern and when LASIK may not be the best choice.

Dr. Turner was the first to perform the Crystalens procedure in San Jose and is among the most experienced in the Bay Area. San Jose patients realize that choosing an experienced surgeon with a long record of successs is important. If you are a San Jose or San Francisco Bay Area resident and are interested in LASIK or Crystalens, contact Turner Eye Institute.
