I have been seeing Dr. Avinashi for 14 years. He is not only extremely professional and knowledgeable but very pleasant. Eye disease can be very stressful to many. Dr. Avinashi is very good at looking on the bright side when it comes to explaining the outcomes of my condition. I always leave the office after an appointment feeling comfortable about the responses I have received from him. He takes the time to answer all questions thoroughly. His interest in keeping up with technological advances regarding diagnostic equipment is also very important to me.

Seeing an optometrist involves much more than just getting a prescription for corrective lenses and so you really need to see someone like Dr. Avinshi who is on the ball.

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.
