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!

Optometrists/Co-Management

Optometrists are eye doctors who specialize in measuring a patient's eye glasses prescription as well as binocular vision problems and primary eye care. Their skills are extremely important to a LASIK surgery specialist as they have an in-depth understanding of the needs of their patients and are highly trained in eye care anatomy and optics (2 very important aspects of LASIK eye surgery).

Optometrists are highly respected for providing what's best for their patients and can maintain a strong co-management relationship with a LASIK eye surgeon that enhances the total experience of the patient and obtains the best possible results.

Turner Eye Institute values our optometric network highly. They provide vital eye care and demonstrate expertise in patient care. Optometrists are often able to develop much closer relationships with their patients through long-term dependable care. LASIK eye surgery, on the other hand, is a one-time procedure. Without the invaluable assistance of the primary eye care provider (the optometrist), patients might feel that they are being placed into the hands of a relative stranger.
