"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!"
Practitioners of iridology claim they can help you just by looking at the iris, the colored portion of the eye, and make diagnostic judgments in relation to systemic aliments. This concept of iris analysis can supposedly detect subconscious tensions, hereditary weaknesses, and states of health and disease. Although they can't really say what’s wrong with you, iridologists claim their unique method can alert you to "imbalances" which can be treated with vitamins, minerals or herbs.
No one knows when this practice of iridology started but Dr. Ignatz von Peczely of Hungary is credited as the promoter of this "science." The story goes that at the age of 10, Peczely accidentally broke an owl's leg and saw a black stripe in its eye. He took care of the bird and later noticed that the stripe slowly disappeared as the owl got well. Peczely eventually became a doctor and saw the same changes in the irises of accident victims. From there, he concluded that all diseases were reflected in the iris of the eye. The Holistic Health Handbook says there are over 10,000 iridologists or iridiagnosticians in Europe and over 1,000 in the United States. The most popular proponent of this art is Dr. Bernard Jensen, an American chiropractor who has written 2 books on the subject.
Iridologists believe the iris is divided into 40 zones, each corresponding to different body parts. These zones and their bodily connections were published 1866. By looking at a particular part of the iris, iridologists say they can determine which body part or organ has a problem. Warning signs include abnormal spots, colors or lines that the iridologist believes reflects all parts of the body, and even the mind and the spirit, providing insight into what is wrong at the moment of examination, what may have been wrong in the past, or even what may go wrong in the future.
The science of iris analysis has never been taught in medical or optometry schools. The shortcomings of iridology were apparent back in the early 1900s when its practitioners failed to identify what was actually wrong with their patients. The method never produced any meaningful scientific results over many years and so it slowly faded away. Today, holistic health enthusiasts have given new life to this old philosophy however current studies still show that nothing has changed and iridology remains an unreliable diagnostic tool in modern eye care.
