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!

I felt that I was in expert hands

I've had glasses for several decades, so I finally made up my mind to pursue LASIK treatment. Although a little out of the way, I did the research and was impressed with Turner Eye Institute and Dr. Patel. After my initial consultation, I was given a preparatory regimen which I followed to the "T". The consultation specialist informed me of what to expect with the operation, potential side effects, and post-op activities. On the day of the surgery, I felt that I was in expert hands. The entire process went smoothly. I followed the post-op instructions and now, one month later, I'm still going strong. This has been one of the best decisions I've made and I can't speak highly enough of the process and Dr. Patel and his team.

No more glasses!
Excellent vision.
Positive life outcome.
Throughout the operation, everyone checked on me and answered my questions. I felt safe and cared for.

The procedure can be unnerving to some. Talk to your LASIK counselor and ask many questions. This procedure isn't the best choice for everyone.
The procedure is pricey. I used CareCredit, which will allow me to pay over 2 years, similar to a car payment.
You MUST follow all instructions (pre and post op) in order to ensure a successful operation.
