  • "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!"

Childrens Eye Exam: What to Expect



Childrens Eye Exam: What to Expect

Vision exams can vary depending on the age of the child. For instance a practitioner might ask an older child to identify letters whereas a younger child may be shown pictures of animals and toys. The key points of most vision exams are similar. The eyecare provider will first review your child s personal health and family health history and then conduct tests to check for the following: Vision: By using an instrument called a retinoscope your eyecare practitioner can check for nearsightedness farsightedness and astigmatism A child may then be shown pictures or an eye chart to measure his/her vision precisely and if necessary to determine a prescription for corrective eyewear.

Alignment: Your eyecare provider will give your child three-dimensional glasses and will ask the child to choose the three-dimensional images among a series of pictures. This fun exercise tests whether your child s eyes are working in synch or not. If they are not there may be a problem with alignment.

Co-ordination of eye muscles: The practitioner will move a light in a set pattern to test your child s ability to see sharply and clearly at near and far distances.

Peripheral (side) vision: Your eyecare provider will move an object at the edge of a child s field of vision. This is done to detect such conditions as glaucoma and tumours.

Pupil response to light: Your eyecare practitioner will shine a light in a child s eye and watch the pupil s reaction. This can detect possible neurological problems.

Colour testing: Your practitioner will ask a child to describe figures in a series of illustrations made up of numerous coloured dots or circles. This tests the child’s ability to differentiate colours.

The external eye: Your eyecare provider will examine the health of the child s eyelids and eyelashes as well as the other structures at the front of the eye such as the cornea iris and lens.

The interior and back of the eye: The doctor will use an instrument called an ophthalmoscope to see the retina and optic nerve at the back of the eye. This is where clues to many eye diseases first appear. Occasionally your eyecare practitioner will use special drops to have a better view of the back of the eye.
