I've seen Dr. Avinahi twice now, and can truthfully say I have never had a better Optometrist. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and takes the time to answer all your questions. He has a wonderful staff as well. They explain what test each equipment is used for and make sure you are very comfortable. Great customer service! I highly recommend this office.

I have been to Hollyburn Eye Clinic for the past four years (with a one-year hiatus that I regret). Dr. Avinashi is a very personable professional and makes an effort to make his patients feel acknowledged and comfortable. His diagnoses are spot on and makes good recommendations. The staff is very friendly as well.

An outstanding professional in his field. I have been fortunate to have Dr. Avinashi for ten years. I have been lucky and call him the good news doctor but I know if the news was bad he would handle the situation with candour and empathy. He has a delightful staff to support him--efficient and fun to talk to.

Dr. Avinashi is the best eye Dr. i have ever seen. He diagnosed right away that my prescription was off and that i was over-prescribed plus he offered better quality lenses at a cheaper price. I would highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Avinashi is always friendly, thorough, and keen to see things from the client's viewpoint. He is careful to recommend all the options–including economical solutions that do the job–not simply the most expensive alternatives.

I've been a patient of Dr. Avinashi's for over ten years now, and I'm always impressed with his in depth knowledge, and comprehensive eye exams. He is always very friendly and pleasant, and takes the time to explain everything. My son is also a patient, and we both feel lucky to have Dr. Avinashi looking after our vision and eye health. Thank you Dr. Avinashi, as well as your friendly and helpful office staff.

Biography

After completing his Doctor of Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, Dr. Avinashi spent time doing clinical electives in a variety of settings around the world. These experiences, as well as his fluency in English, French, and Hindi, have allowed him to broaden his scope of practice and touch on a great deal of patient types. Dr. Avinashi has a special interest in ocular surface diseases, laser refractive surgery, contact lenses and pediatric eye care. In 1999, he successfully underwent laser surgery himself and is now better able to advise and manage his patients who are considering the procedure for themselves. Dr. Avinashi takes a strong interest in humanitarian work, both locally and internationally. He has initiated various fundraising campaigns to support a range of third world eye care societies. He also travels to Northern BC routinely to provide eye-care services to under-serviced communities. Dr. Avinashi is a regular speaker and lecturer, focusing his topics on prevention and ocular health, to advances in medical optometry and practice management. His audiences range from primary school students, local community senior groups, to medical colleagues across the country. In 2013, he we recognized by the BC Association of Optometrists as the Young Optometrist of the Year. In 2014, he was named the Excellence Award winner for Small Business of the Year and in 2016, the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce acknowledged him as the Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In his professional career, Dr. Avinashi has built a reputation for his thorough and compassionate approach to eye care, catered to the individual needs of his patients, regardless of their age. He is happy to bring his experience and dynamic personality to his practices on the North Shore and New Westminster.
