Dr. Gall has extensive experience and education. Originally from Windsor, Ontario, he received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo in 1988 and then studied at the University of Houston College of Optometry earning his Doctorate in 1993.
After 1993, Dr. Gall practiced part-time in Houston, Texas while he continued to research binocular vision (eye alignment and focus ability) at the University of Houston. He completed his Master of Vision Science in 1995, after which he started his practice..
From the beginning, Dr. Gall has offered vision therapy as an option for success. In 1993, Dr. Gall received his Doctorate in Optometry, then in 1995, he received his Master of Vision Science in the area of binocular vision after which he started his practice. In 1999, he received his Fellowship from the American Academy of Optometry (AAO), earned by only 5% of optometrists who give back to the profession in terms of research and leadership. In the fall of 2010, Dr. Gall moved his practice to a larger facility and
opened the Oakville Centre for Vision – Vision is the Difference. Upon studying for two years, in 2015 Dr. Gall was awarded the Diplomate in Binocular Vision Perception & Pediatric Optometry (Dip. BVPPO), earned by less than 1% of optometrists, which clearly demonstrates his lifelong learning to provide advanced care in this specialized area of optometry.
At a young age, Dr. Gall’s eyes were straight, although they would turn-in or go cross-eyed from time to time; he would stumble (bump into walls) and be less coordinated than other toddlers.
After a visit to the eye doctor, he was diagnosed with accommodative esotropia (eyes turning-in due the need to over-focus to see clearly) and the proper treatment of corrective glasses proved very successful. While wearing glasses, Dr. Gall eyes did not over-focus, they stayed straight and his ability to run, catch and jump improved immensely (improved eye-body and eye-hand coordination). This positive outcome was Dr. Gall’s early experience with eye doctors.
In his teenage years, Dr. Gall invested his student earnings, with his regular eye doctor, for a pair of contact lenses. Now instead of wearing glasses fulltime, he wore contact lenses every day which improved his side-vision and offered more natural vision. This was another positive experience of clear comfortable vision with the help of an eye doctor.
After Dr. Gall graduated from optometry school, and owned his own practice, he trusted Dr. Herzig at the Herzig Eye Institute for laser vision correction. Dr. Gall now enjoyed life without glasses or contact lenses. This increased quality of life and clear comfortable vision was evident in the joys of waking up, doing fitness or travelling without the burden of glasses or contact lenses.
For clear comfortable vision outdoors, Dr. Gall wears polarized sunglasses which enhances vision on bright sunny days and even over-cast days, without the nuisance of glare. Over 90% of the sunware sold at his office are polarized which also includes the two other standard features of sunware: dark lenses and UV protection.
Dr. Gall cares for all of his patients and can easily empathize with those with binocular vision issues affecting school, life or sports performance. In addition, he appreciates those patients wanting to wear contact lenses, or those who desire for laser vision correction. Clear comfortable vision is important to Dr. Gall and he understands your need for polarized glare control.

I care for my patients. My interest in optometric practice stems from a genuine desire to care for the visual problems of patients and emphasizes a never ending effort to be certain that they receive the optimum treatment. I strive to be certain that my patients understand their visual condition, are aware of the treatment options, and receive optimal care from my office and other professionals to whom I refer.”
