  • "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!"

Night Glare After Laser Surgery (TLC Branded)

Concerned about Night Glare Following Laser Vision Correction?

Over the past several years there has been a lot of coverage on the issue of night glare and laser vision correction which has raised many questions. While there will always be risks associated with any surgical procedure including possible night vision problems today s laser vision correction is exceptionally safe and effective.

The level of laser technology patient screening protocols and the overall standard of care provided by the laser vision correction provider can make a dramatic difference in what visual outcome your achieve including your night vision. Unfortunately the night glare studies highlighted in local and national media represented a very small sample patient group and were the results of six-year-old technology now considered archaic in such a dynamic industry. To illustrate the frequently referenced Dr. Jory study included only 38 patients with higher prescriptions who may have had diminished night vision before surgery. This is a very small sample size given that as of March 2003 over 11.9 million laser vision correction procedures have been performed worldwide.

In reality many studies have been done that have shown excellent results with laser vision correction; some patients even have improved night vision. A recent carefully controlled study showed that most patients actually have improved contrast sensitivity after surgery.1

A recent FDA study using results from TLC Laser Eye Centers doctors using scanning laser technology showed 9% of patients had improved night driving vision after LASIK and 99.5% of patients in the FDA study stated that they were satisfied with their results. TLC Laser Eye Centers alone has treated over 4000 doctors and 2000 of them were eye doctors!

It is true that a small percentage of patients may experience night vision disturbances. Some are temporary while others are more longstanding. Centers such as TLC Laser Eye Centers have invested in state of the art diagnostic testing equipment the most up to date lasers (including Custom LASIK technology) that can help to substantially reduce your risk of disturbance of your night vision.

Laser vision correction surgery is not for every patient. It is important that patients choose a laser vision correction provider/surgeon that will require a comprehensive preoperative examination and carefully evaluate your suitability for surgery. If you are an appropriate candidate they will determine the best procedure to minimize any risk and maximize your chances of success.

Finally testing that should be performed prior to your surgery by your doctor and/or the laser vision correction provider include:

  • Detailed patient history to rule out potential problems
  • Comprehensive eye examination including a cycloplegic refraction
  • Dilated retinal exam
  • Computerized corneal topography and wavefront reading
  • Corneal thickness measurement
  • Pupil size measurement under both light and dark conditions with the Colvard pupillometer.

This extensive array of testing will help minimize any potential complications and ensure that your results are optimal. Our experience has shown that TLC Laser Eye Centers sets the standard in diagnostic testing and patient care. We appreciate the trust that you place in us and will do everything within our power to facilitate your success.
