"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!"
"Presbyopia" is a naturally-occurring condition that usually appears as people enter their forties and makes reading materials blurry without the use of reading glasses or multifocal lenses. In presbyopia, the crystalline lens inside the eye becomes thicker and more difficult to change shape to keep small print, computers or hobby materials clear. This is not a disease or an abnormality, but is a normal change associated with aging. There is no “cure” for presbyopia, but mo...

Keratoconus (ker-ah-to-ko’-nus) means to have a ‘coned-shaped cornea’. It is a relatively common and non-inflammatory progressive disorder whereby the normally round cornea becomes thin and irregularly conically shaped. The abnormal shape of the cornea prevents the light from correctly focusing on the retina. Called irregular astigmatism it results in blurred vision and visual distortions.
Nearly 10 per cent of new cases of keratoconus show some level of genetic transmiss...
From the Greek words “kerato,” which means cornea and “konus,” meaning cone-shaped, keratoconus is a progressive condition which causes the normally dome-shaped clear cornea to become thinner and irregularly-shaped. Because the cornea is the main refractive surface of the eye, any irregularities in its shape or curvature cause vision to become distorted and blurry.
In figure 1, the photo simulates what someone with uncorrected keratoconus might see; some objects may...
