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!

First Optimized Wavefront 400 Hz Allegretto Excimer Laser LASIK in Northern California

Turner Eye Institute maintains its position as the technology leader in LASIK in the San Francisco Bay Area by becoming the first LASIK center in Northern California to use the advanced 400 Hz Allegretto Excimer Laser System with Optimized Wavefront performance. This system even further improves the accuracy of LASIK treatment and reduces the number of enhancements. The 400 Hz speed allows a faster treatment time for a more comfortable procedure. Moderate near-sighted prescriptions can often be performed with less than 15 seconds of laser treatments per eye.

Dr. Turner has been very successful in treating LASIK patients with previous Laser systems but desires to improve with each advancement in technology. He continues to offer his patients an expanded range of treatment options with Visian, Verisyse, Crystalens, Intacs, Restor, ReZoom, and many other choices. LASIK is not the best choice for every patient so Dr. Turner offes a variety of FDA approved options to give the best options to his patients.

The Allegretto Laser system is available in the San Leandro office. If you are interested in LASIK or refractive surgery treatment options contact the Turner Eye Institute office.
