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!

San Jose as a prime location for LASIK Surgery

Silicon Valley is a major center for technology and is well-regarded across the globe. In addition to software and other computer technologies, the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley are major hubs for medical care and medical technologies. It is not surprising that San Jose, the East Bay, and San Francisco would provide advanced laser vision and refractive surgery technologies.

Dr. Stephen Turner is recognized by his peers as one of the top Laser Vsion Correction Providers in California. He has been performing the safe and effective procedure since it was FDA approved and has performed more than 30,000 vision correction procedures during his more than 30 years in practice. Patients who choose Dr. Turner recognize that experience is an important aspect of choosing a skilled surgeon and many are referred by other eye doctors and optometrists throughout the bay area.

Dr. Turner has pioneered many of the most advanced procedures in the San Francisco Bay Area and San Jose and was the first surgeon in Northern California to perform a significant number of advanced vision procedures. In addition to LASIK, Dr. Turner offers a variety of other options that can be customized to fit the needs of each patient. While LASIK has proven to be safe and effective, many times a patient can receive more satisfactory vision with other advanced procedures that are now available.
