  • "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!"

Learn How Smoking Can Be Damaging To Your Eyesight

"The chemicals from cigarettes can cause inflammation of the conjunctiva causing your eyes to be irritated and turning red" Most people are not aware of this fact or choose to ignore it but smoking can be very damaging to your eyes. The chemicals from cigarettes can cause inflammation of the conjunctiva causing your eyes to be irritated and turning red. Studies have indicated that a correlation between smoking and a development of cataracts. Smoking is also found to be related to eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration.

Although the causes are not understood fully most researchers believe that smoking is a preventable factor. Evidence have found that approximately a quarter of cases of the disease is also link to past or current smoking habits. Smoking can also cause the constriction of blood vessels which related to the rising inner eye pressure or intraocular pressure can lead to glaucoma causing optic nerve damage.

Another study also showed a strong correlation between smoking and poor nutrition to optic nerve damage. The most common smoking related damage to the eye is age related macular degeneration which is the severe permanent loss of central vision. Smoking is also associated to other diseases such as nuclear cataract and thyroid eye disease. The chemicals from cigarettes that you smoke travels to your entire body through your bloodstream. These chemicals can damage to the macula which is the most sensitive part of your retina. There is a possibility of tiny blood vessels which can burst through the macula causing permanent damage or may also cause the cells of macula to slowly die leading to the loss of vision and eyesight. When this happens the damage is permanent even laser treatment cannot cure this because the macula is very sensitive part of your retina. There is a new treatment called photodynamic therapy (PDT) which may reduce the damage of vision loss but most of the people with macular degeneration will not be able to be treated.

By not smoking you will reduce your chances and risk of getting this disease. Bear in mind that the eye is very sensitive and once it is damaged the damage is irreversible. Tony James is an ex-smoker for 15 years and is currently helping smokers to quit smoking with ease without the discomfort of cravings or withdrawal symptoms.
