  • "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!"

Sports Vision Specialists

Sports Vision Specialists Athletes face unique visual demands that present interesting challenges for their eyecare needs. Although they may have good visual acuity excellent sports vision is a result of many factors including depth perception visual memory and eye-hand-body co-ordination. Developed vision skills are essential to superior athletic performance as the eyes lead the body in most of our actions movements and perceptions.

Sports vision specialists commonly referred to as behavioural optometrists can help both recreational and professional athletes optimize their athletic ability. These professionals provide screenings evaluations and treatment to athletes that are more specialized than standard eyecare procedures.

By testing every facet of an athlete’s visual system sports vision specialists aim to determine and correct any visual weakness than can hamper performance. A sports vision specialist will normally test an athlete’s vision for the following things:

   * Dynamic visual acuity and tracking to see fast moving objects
   * Visual memory to process and remember a fast moving
     complex image of people and things
   * Peripheral vision to see action and images that occur to the side
   * Visual reaction time
     which is the speed with which the brain recognizes and reacts to an action
   * Depth perception
     which allows athletes to estimate the distance between themselves and another object quickly and accurately
   * Focus flexibility
     or the time required between focusing on distant objects and near objects
   * Speed of eye movement and eye alignment

Treatments for identified visual weaknesses depend on the time effort and resources that an athlete can commit to his or her improvement. This may range from weekly intervals of specific exercises to a comprehensive training program that requires several months of work and several visits with the sports vision specialist to complete.

Examples of athletes who could benefit from vision training include: race car drivers baseball and basketball players hockey goaltenders archers and the list goes on.

Race car driver s unique eyecare need is to quickly process visual information while their surroundings fly by them at nearly 250 km/hr.

Baseball players and goaltenders have similar visual demands. They require the ability to accurately track fast moving objects and to react accordingly.
