"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!"
Some silicone hydrogel lenses allow six times more oxygen to reach your eyes than ordinary contact lenses.
Technology in contact lens development keeps on improving. The creation of silicone hydrogel contact lenses, however, is considered the biggest contact lens development in the last three decades. These lenses offer tremendous health and comfort benefits to new and existing contact lens wearers. One great advantage of these lenses is the fact that some can be safely worn overnight for up to 30 days. But the benefits only begin there.
Silicone hydrogel lenses are manufactured from a revolutionary group of super-permeable lens materials. The silicone component allows for high oxygen transmission to the eye. While traditional soft contact lenses act as a barrier between the eye and the oxygen the eye needs, some silicone hydrogel lenses allow six times more oxygen to reach your eyes than ordinary contact lenses. Oxygen to the eye is critical to help it function properly. Without enough oxygen, you might feel symptoms such as end-of day discomfort, irritation, dryness, and redness - also known as corneal oxygen deficiency. In fact, 64% - 80% of contact lens wearers reported experiencing one or more of these symptoms. People who wear their contacts longer than the recommended wearing time are most at risk. Sometimes there are more severe implications for the oxygen-starved eye, including increased risk for infection, or blurred and fluctuating vision. Over time, lack of oxygen can cause contact lens intolerance and lens wear must be discontinued. By allowing more oxygen to reach the eye, silicone hydrogel lenses provide optimal corneal health, greater comfort, and longer wearing schedules. Wearers often have whiter, brighter and healthier-looking eyes.
Other benefits of these revolutionary lenses include:
the lenses balance oxygen and water to provide all-day comfort and maintain moisture even in adverse conditions
advanced surface coatings repel the buildup of bacteria and protein deposits, thus increasing lens comfort
lenses can be worn for long hours during the day, and some can be used for extended periods of up to 30 days
Silicone hydrogels are the new standard in contact lens wear. Your eye care professional can recommend the type of lens and wearing schedule that maintains optimal eye health while also meeting your lifestyle needs.
