So nice, friendly and not too pushy. I like that he understands that not everyone can afford to spend upwards of 1000 dollars on both glasses and contacts combined. Will go back:) One of the best eye doctors i've had in a while.

I haven't lived on the North Shore for years but I refuse to find another optometrist office. These doctors are all extremely personable and listen to your concerns.

I saw Dr. Avinashi last week for the first time. I've had several problems with my eyes since my teens so I'm very cautious when choosing who I see. Dr. Avinashi was recommended by my Ophthalmologist, and it proved to be an excellent choice. He was professional, knowledgeable, and very thorough with all the eye tests he did on me. He then took the time to discuss the results and answer all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Avinashi to everyone. A definite bonus is his excellent staff. They were very friendly and helpful. l felt comfortable the minute I walked in. I'll be back!!

Dr. Avinashi was awesome with my son's (3) first visit. He made the appointment fun and easy. The next day my son wanted to come back for a visit. So happy to know that eye exams are going to be a breeze!
