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!

2009 Official LASIK Surgeon for the Golden State Warriors

Stephen Turner, M.D. was chosen as the official LASIK surgeon for the Golden State Warriors for the 2008-2009 NBA season. Many NBA players have LASIK surgery as it is a safe accurate procedure for correcting near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism. It also allows a higher level of performance than cumbersome prescription goggles that can fog up and hamper peripheral vision. Most NBA players select LASIK rather than use contact lenses or glasses. High profile athletes around the world select LASIK surgery in order to compete at their highest level.
