After completing his Doctor of Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, Dr. Avinashi spent time doing clinic electives in a variety of settings around the world. These experiences, as well as his fluency in English, French, Hindi and Punjabi, 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 diseases, laser refractive surgery 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 has spoken on numerous occasions at schools and educational events, on topics ranging from various eye problems, to the importance of routine eye examinations. He has also been featured on local radio shows to discuss the importance of proper eye care with the public. 

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.
