"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!"

"You have conjunctivitis" the eye doctor informed his concerned patient.
"Don t I have pink eye ?" the patient questioned.
"Yes" the doctor responded.
Although this may sound confusing both doctor and patient here are correct. The patient does have conjunctivitis an inflammation of the conjunctiva....and because her eyes are a deep reddish-pink in color she also has pink eye .
Pink eye is really a layman s term that generally describes an eye that is red and inflamed. The...

As in our previous article on vision development of infants from birth up to a year old, there are many activities that parents can encourage that will help children up to preschool develop great visual skills they will need later on in school and life. These skills not only help the process of vision but can be helpful in physical coordination as well.
In the time between one year and preschool, young children should become very interested iin exploration of their world, looking and li...
Every parent wants the best for their child, and that includes good vision and good visual skills like tracking and moving the eyes as a team. There are a lot of little things parents can do to help their child with this process, and have fun with their baby, too.

Exactly what is vision? Is 20/20 vision adequate for reading ability?
In an article written several years ago by Dr. Donald J Getz, OD, FCOVD, FAAO, the terms vision and eyesight were defined rather differently, although many times they are used interchangeably.
Dr. Getz defined eyesight as “simply the ability to see something clearly,” as in an individual having 20/20 eyesight as measured in a routine vision examination, while he deemed vision as “the unde...
The substances filling the back of the eye and keeping retinal and other tissues in place are known as humours. The aqueous humour fills the space around the crystalline lens and iris in the front part of the eye, and the vitreous humour, sometimes called the vitreous body, a relatively thick gelatin-like substance, keeps the back of the eye rounded and supports the retinal tissues, holding them snugly against the rounded inner surface of the globe.
As we age, it is...
Floaters are translucent specks that seem to float about in your field of vision. Some floaters are normal and most people have them but they don’t usually notice them unless they become numerous or more prominent.
Floaters can look like cobwebs or squiggly lines or floating bugs. They become more apparent when you look at something plain and bright such as white paper or a blue sky. They are also more evident when they are stirred up such as when you move your eye...
