  • "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!"

Whats New in Contact Lenses


What s New in Contact Lenses?

Have you ever considered contact lenses but thought you were not a suitable candidate? Were you previously wearing contact lenses but gave up because of problems with them? Today s state-of-the-art contact lenses may be the answer for you! They are safer more comfortable and convenient and fit more people than ever before.

Virtually every kind of contact lens is available in a disposable or planned replacement format that makes lenses healthy affordable and simple to care for.

Daily Disposable

Daily disposable lenses provide the convenience of no lens care and the comfort of new fresh lenses every day. You replace your contact lenses each day so you no longer need to worry about cleaning your lenses. This is an ideal option for people with allergies because one-day use reduces the chance of the build-up of pollen and other deposits. It is also great for people who only wear contact lenses occasionally - for sports social occasions or when traveling. Daily disposables combine ocular health benefits with comfort and convenience all at an affordable price.

Extended Wear Contacts

Recent dramatic advances in contact lens materials now allow contact lenses to stay in the eye overnight for up to 30 days. New extended wear contacts are made from extremely permeable silicone hydrogel materials that provide the eye with up to six times more oxygen than conventional contact lenses. They offer the advantage of waking with clear vision and eliminating the nightly storage daily insertion and removal of lenses. As compared to traditional lens material the silicone hydrogel does not show an increase in risk of ocular complications. It is highly recommended however to schedule regular examinations with your eyecare practitioner if you wear this type of contact lens.

Toric Contact Lenses

Designed especially to correct astigmatism toric contact lenses will correct this eye condition where an irregularly shaped cornea or lens distorts vision. Manufacturers make toric lenses from the same materials as regular contact lenses thus they are available in soft and rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses. In the past toric contact lenses were very difficult to manufacture expensive and somewhat uncomfortable to wear. Today s soft toric lenses can be mass-produced accurately and affordably. They come in more powers than ever before and are also available in disposable lens designs including daily disposable.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

For people with presbyopia there are multifocal contact lenses. They work similarly to bifocal spectacle lenses where different parts of the lens are responsible for correcting vision at varying distances. Multifocal lenses are available in soft and RGP materials. Most RGP lenses are custom made while soft bifocal lenses are available in disposable formats and many different designs. Now you can drive read see distances and continue an active lifestyle all without your glasses.

Coloured Contact Lenses

Coloured contact lenses enhance or change eye colour and they are an easy and fun way of making a fashion statement. They come in dozens of colours and intensities. Most coloured contact lenses are available with or without a visual prescription and come in disposable or frequent replacement lenses. Tinted lenses require the same fitting and care procedures as other contact lenses even if they have no visual corrective power.

There are four types of coloured contact lenses. These are visibility tints enhancement tints opaque colour tints and light-filtering tints.

A visibility tint is a light blue or green tint that is added to a lens to help wearers see the lens better during insertion removal or if it is dropped. Because the tint is extremely light it does not affect eye colour.

An enhancement tint is a translucent tint that is slightly darker than a visibility tint and its purpose is to affect eye colour. It does not change the eye s colour but can enhance a wearer s existing eye colour. People with light coloured eyes who wish to intensify their eye colour usually use this form of tint.

A colour tint is a stronger tint that can significantly change eye colour. Colour contacts are readily available in a diverse assortment of colours including hazel brown grey green blue and violet. Coloured contacts attempt to reproduce natural shades except for in the centre of the lens that lies over the pupil which is transparent.

Active people who enjoy sports can use light-filtering tints to enhance certain colours around them such as the brightness of a golf ball. Specific objects appear brighter and are easier to focus on as surrounding colours are made dimmer by the contact lenses.

Ultraviolet Blocking Contact Lenses

Ultraviolet (UV) lenses absorb ultraviolet radiation to protect eyes against overexposure that can lead to various conditions including cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. UV rays come from the sun and electronic monitors. UV contact lenses cover only the cornea; because they cannot cover the entire eye these contact lenses cannot replace sunglasses. They work best when used in conjunction with sunglasses. Strongly consider these contact lenses if you have age-related macular degeneration have had cataract surgery or are sensitive to light. However UV contact lenses can be worn by any contact lens wearer.
