  • "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!"

Now that summer is rapidly approaching we are able to spend more of our time outdoors. With that brings the need for effective protective eyewear from the sun.

All well made sunglasses on the market have one hundred percent UV protection. The benefits of UV protection are well known including the reduction of skin cancer to the eyelids the chance of benign growths on the white of the eye cataract growth and macular degeneration progression.

Transitions lenses are very popular with a lot of patients. This a proprietary lens that comes in single vision lined bifocal or progressive lenses. The lens will adjust it’s tint based on the amount of UV light present. Essentially they lighten up indoors and darken outdoors. Many patients select this type of lens for every day use. These lenses also offer one hundred percent UV protection.

If you desire a pair of sunglasses there are many types of frame styles and lens properties available. Selecting a frame style is frequently based on personal preference. Styles range from no wrap to mild wrap to full wrap. The term wrap refers to the extent the frame forms to your face. A pair of sunglasses that has a full wrap provides the most coverage in limiting stray light above below and to the sides of your eyes.

There is a wide range of sunglass lens properties to consider when selecting the best sunglasses for you. Lenses can be tinted any colour. Tinting a lens restricts the amount of light that reaches your eyes which reduces light sensitivity. The most popular lens colours are grey or brown. Some tints are selected to enhance certain colours of the visible spectrum. For example there is a teal-coloured tint available that is ideal for tennis. This tint makes the yellow in the tennis ball stand out.

In addition to selecting the tinted lens colour polarization is another option to consider. This is an upgrade from regular tinted sunglasses. Light travels in an infinite number of directions. When a polarized filter is placed in a lens it blocks light that travels in all directions except for one. This provides exceptional glare reduction in bright outdoor lighting. This is why polarized sunglasses are very popular with fisherman. Light reflecting off water can be very startling. Polarized sunglasses allows fisherman to easily see fish below the surface.

There is a lot to consider when selecting the best type of sunglasses for you. Talk to your local optometrist or optician to find the best sunglasses for you.
