I recently had cataract surgery on both my eyes including having ReStor multifocal implants. Dr. Villanueva performed an excellent surgery for both eyes. No pain, no discomfort and most of all, I went from extreme bear-sightedness to 97%+ eyesight and no corrective lens needed! It's amazing and I am so grateful for Dr. Villanueva's professional expertise, confidence and state of the art instruments for pre-surgical measurements. My astigmatism and myopia have been corrected and I'm amaz

Fr. Anthony Villanueva is an outstanding eye doctor/ophthalmologist. He has been my eye doctor for over fourteen years now and he always gave the best care to me and the other patients I know who were/are my parishioners as well as to my priest classmate. He always make sure that I have my six month check-up and now, due to his watchfulness, annual checkup. His wife, Margie, and his staff are all very welcoming, helpful and accommodating. He's a friend & fellow-alumnus of the same UST University

Dr. Anthony Villanueva is a very professional, kind-hearted doctor. I have been a patient of his for as long as I can remember. He has always given my family and me the best treatment. When I was younger, I had a lazy eye and blurry vision. Luckily, Dr. Villanueva was able to treat my condition early. Now I have 20/20 vision and I've never had to wear glasses again! I owe my perfect vision to him. Thank you Dr. Villanueva for your wonderful care over the years!
