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!

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.
