  • "We barely go to optometrists so when we do, we should look for the best! I am super pleased I chose Dr. Pal\'s office. They were helpful from beginning to end, from booking on the phone to my actual visit. Dr. Pal was very detailed and went in-depth about my eye health. She is very patient and made me feel calm. The optician helped me pick a great pair of glasses, they were genuinely friendly which is a huge bonus."

  • "I have been going to Dr. Pal for several years now. My most recent visit on June 6, 2016 was the best experience there that I have ever had. Firstly, the women on the desk were friendly and efficient - a very good prelude to my examination. Dr. Pal, herself, was, as usual, very thorough and encouraging in her examination. And she puts you at ease before we get into the eyes examination by discussing other things in life. That helps to ease any stress I may have. And they now have a man in the office who does that difficult examination (name of which I do not know!). He is so patient and encouraging and made the exam not so difficult for me this time. After all that, I saw Dr. Pal again before I left and she told me my eyes were good! Even had the news been not so good, I believe that I would be able to handle it because I truly believe that Dr. Pal and her staff would have taken good care of me. I will always go back to Dr. Pal and members of her team because I truly believe"

  • " I have been to a few appointments at Dr. Pal\'s office over the last year for dry eye issues and every time it has been a very positive experience. The 3 receptionists at the front desk are warm and friendly. They are attentive and provide a very high level of customer service. I appreciate that they call me by name and remembered conversations we had at previous visits. I find Dr. Pal to be an excellent practitioner who is very thorough with her exams, has a lovely personality and takes the time to answer any and all questions that may arise. I am happy with the computer glasses I purchased and value the honest opinions I received from the staff when selecting frames. It was refreshing to have multiple opinions on styles and I felt they truly wanted me to walk out with a frame that was best suited to me. I highly recommend Dr. Pal \'s office! As a health care practitioner myself, I think all health care experiences should be this personilzed and friendly!"

Intralase LASIK Surgery


Intralase LASIK Surgery

IntraLase makes it possible to operate on many patients who were not considered candidates due to their thin corneas. LASIK an acronym for Laser in-situ Keratomileusis (ker''ah-to-mih-lu-sis) is currently the most common type of laser vision correction. It can correct nearsightedness farsightedness and astigmatism. During the LASIK procedure light is properly focused on the retina by permanently reshaping the central area of the cornea. The cornea is the transparent dome-like structure that covers the iris and pupil of your eyes. Normally the procedure uses an instrument called a microkeratome to create a thin hinged flap in the cornea. The surgeon folds back the flap and then removes a thin layer of corneal tissue using an excimer laser. Following the laser treatment the surgeon replaces the flap. It bonds naturally and securely into place without the need for stitches.

With IntraLase LASIK the surgeon uses a femtosecond laser to create a precise corneal flap instead of using the traditional microkeratome. The femtosecond laser beams pulses at the speed of one quadrillionth of a second. By replacing the traditional approach with a silent tiny beam of laser light the laser dramatically reduces the risk of complications. This offers patients a safer computer-controlled alternative for creating the corneal flap since it provides the surgeon with greater precision and accuracy. (It is especially important because this is used during the crucial first step of the procedure and the precision of the equipment helps make each outcome more predictable.) Computer software is then used to guide the laser beam into the exact desired location on the cornea. The laser is programmed to leave an uncut section of tissue to form a hinge so the flap may be folded back. The surgeon then proceeds to reshape the cornea with an excimer laser as in traditional LASIK.

Advantages of IntraLase

The microkeratome uses a significant vacuum level through a suction ring while the femtosecond laser creates a flap under a low vacuum delivering the laser energy through a disposable glass lens. The lower vacuum level reduces the risk of complications arising from high pressure procedures. The outer surface of the cornea suffers no trauma and the procedure is painless.

The femtosecond laser produces a corneal flap with greater precision than the microkeratome. This reduces the risk of epithelial ingrowth corneal wrinkles and thick flaps all complications of traditional LASIK. In addition flaps made using the IntraLase laser appear to adhere more tightly to the corneal bed once the procedure is finished.

IntraLase makes it possible to operate on many patients who were not considered candidates due to their thin corneas. The femtosecond laser is able to make thinner more precise cuts in the corneal flap thus allowing surgeons to perform LASIK on people with thinner or flatter corneas. Many IntraLase surgeons report that the need to do a touch-up procedure commonly known as an “enhancement ” may be reduced. In addition IntraLase studies have shown the incidence of dry eye symptoms may be reduced with this laser. It is rapidly becoming known as the key ingredient to optimizing visual results in laser vision correction surgery. Overall IntraLase may help minimize risks and optimize results providing better vision.
