Miracal

Some people don’t believe in miracles, however Dr. Barinder Athwal performs miracles on a regular basis. My eyesight was so poor that I was unable to drive at night verging on not driving at all. Eyesight in my right eye was 20 x 80 and my left eye was 20 x 50. I never could have imagined to go from carrying multiple different glasses of different strengths to needing NO glasses at all in every situation including reading and distance. Oh my God !! How could this happen. Dr. Athwal is a meticulous person whom I would recommend to anyone wanting the best in eye care and procedures. My personal solution was the inserting of new lenses in my eyes (painless and 20 minutes each eye). I now have 20 x 20 vision or better in both eyes. I am thankful EVERY day. Thank you Dr. Athwal

Cataract Surgery

I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Barinder Athwal (Dr. Tony). The entire experience from start to finish was very friendly yet very professional. The procedure went smoothly and Dr. Tony and his staff were very pleasant and completely explained all the procedures. I would definitely recommend Athwal Eye Associates to everyone.
