A dedicated husband and father of three daughters, Makaliʻi, Lawakua, and ʻIolana. Dr. Punzal is very active outside of the office as well. Physical fitness, family, and church are very important to him as well as his work within the community.
Dr. Punzal was a Major in the United States Army Reserve, and aided his fellow soldiers with their vision and eye care needs.
Dr. Punzal was born & raised on Kaua’i. In his spare time he enjoys surfing, swimming, biking, and running. He has also competed in body building competitions such as The Kaua’i Cup and is an active participant in many local events, competitions and races.
At Punzal Vision we are inspired to bring our passion for health and health care to our community and to the children of Kaua'i, through our Health Fairs and School Career Days. During our career day talks we walk children through the basics of the science behind our vision, the process of an eye examination, and what it takes to become a Doctor of Optometry. We hope to encourage the next generation to become involved in and leaders of the health care field!
The Punzal ‘Ohana participates together in various community events like the Kaua’i Marathon, Koloa Plantation Days Family Run, Old Sugar Mill Run, and the Kaua’i Cup.
