For over 25 years, Turner Eye Institute has been providing vision correction and LASIK surgeries to residents of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Their distinguished record of excellent results assures their patients of receiving the highest quality of personalized medical care from a highly trained and experienced team.

Turner Eye Institute has provided eye care to tens of thousands of people, allowing them new visual freedom and exciting new opportunities in life. In order to obtain the best results possible, it is important to select a LASIK surgery specialist who is both highly experienced and has a long-standing record of excellent LASIK eye surgery results and surgical outcomes.

Dr. Stephen Turner has been providing eye care to San Francisco and Bay Area patients for as long as Turner Eye Institute has been in business. With an impressive medical background and years of experience, Dr. Turner has become one of the most acclaimed eye physicians in the country. Dr. Turner is a founder of Horizon Vision Centers and has emphasized that the centers remain on the forefront of new FDA approved technology. In conjunction with Horizon Vision Center, the Turner Eye Institute has been on the forefront of every new development in refractive and cataract surgery. Dr. Turner was the first San Francisco Bay Area surgeon to provide Crystalens, Visian, and Wavefront Thin Flap LASIK as well as other forms of laser eye surgery. Dr. Turner is a pioneer in the field of laser eye surgery and often introduces new laser eye surgery techniques and technology to the Bay Area.

Robert Buan, Oakland Baseball Announcer and patient to Dr. Turner said, "LASIK has changed my everyday life. Scratched lenses, broken frames...those are the worries of the past; thanks to Dr. Turner!"

"I was legally blind," says Melanie Morgan, KSFO Radio Personality and patient to Dr. Turner. "I needed corrective lenses to operate an automobile. After surgery it has been terrific. Now I can see the world, and it didn't hurt. It was painless!"

The LASIK staff at the Turner Eye Institute are highly trained ophthalmic technicians. Many are Certified Ophthalmic Technicians through JCAHPO (Joint Commission of Allied Health Professionals in Ophthalmology) having passed a national board exam to obtain this certification. Their optometrists are among the Bay Area's finest and are skilled in Refractometry (finding your glass/lens prescription), Tonometry (checking the pressure in your eyes for glaucoma), Topography (getting a map of your cornea prior to LASIK), Pachymetry (measuring the thickness of your cornea prior to LASIK), and WaveFront Technology.

Joe Starkey, KGO Sports Director and a patient at Turner Eye Institute said, "I had headaches from astigmatism my whole life. Now, with LASIK, the headaches are gone and I can broadcast a 49er game without glasses!"

The professionals at Turner Eye Institute understand the importance of their patients being fully informed about the procedure they have chosen. Dr. Turner has personally trained their optometrists and technicians to explain the potential risks, complications and expectations of surgery. Because of this high-level training, our technical staff takes great pride in its superior surgical counseling skills.
