  • "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!"

Lens Enhancements


Lens Enhancements

New advances in lens treatments have resulted in features that can prolong the life of lenses and make spectacles more comfortable. Their functions include visual comfort protecting your eyes from the sun increasing lens durability and improving lens appearance. It is best to add lens enhancements during the fabrication of the lenses rather than to add it to older lenses.

Scratch-Resistant Coatings

Anti-scratch coatings act like a shield to make plastic and polycarbonate lenses more resistant to scratches and prolong the life of the lenses. Scratch coatings work best when applied to both front and back surfaces of the lens.

Ultraviolet Protection

Ultraviolet light is invisible to the human eye but can cause damage to the skin and ocular tissues. Over a lifetime of exposure ultraviolet rays will damage the outside and the inside of the eye. Lenses like high–index polycarbonate and aspheric materials have UV filters built in. All other lens materials can be specially coated to filter out damaging UV light.

Anti-reflective Coating

AR coating provide TWO key advantages: clearer vision and an enhanced appearance. By significantly reducing surface reflections more light penetrates the lens resulting in clearer vision particularly in low light situations like night driving. AR coatings also enhance cosmetic appeal by providing better eye contact. Talk to your eyecare professional about AR coatings that combine both anti-reflection and scratch coating in one.

Polarized Lenses

Regular sunglasses reduce overall brightness but polarized sunglasses eliminate reflected glare from water snow and shiny surfaces like metal mirrors windshields and glass. Polarized lenses reduce overall brightness eliminate reflected glare and provide UV protection. They are great for driving or all outdoor activities.

To enhance their look or reduce light sensitivity lenses can be tinted or coloured. They filter out light and the degree of tint will depend on your vision needs and your sensitivity to light.


Lenses are available in any colour imaginable. The colour can be for sun protection to reduce the effects of glare personal style and to enhance vision. Certain colours of tints can be beneficial for certain activities. Coloured tints in sunglasses can enhance the contrast on a golf course or the colour of a tennis ball making the ball easier to track.


Gradient lenses have a darker tint on the top of the lens and gradually become lighter towards the bottom of the lens. Usually chosen for style and sun protection they also benefit those who are sensitive to fluorescent lighting. The darker top protects the upper visual field where lights are located while leaving the lower visual field adequately illuminated.


Ultra Violet light allows photochromic lenses to be clear indoors and sunglass dark outdoors. They are convenient and comfortable and can reduce the need for a separate pair of prescription sunglasses. Photochromic lenses do have their limitations and it is important to discuss with your eyecare professional what they are and how they will suit your vision needs.
