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.

Dr. Athwal is very thorough and knowledgeable in many areas of eye health. I had cataract surgery done by Dr. Athwal a little over one year ago. The entire experience was handled very professionally and my results have been excellent. I no longer have to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses! Follow-up care has been thorough. Dr. Athwal is very compassionate, and I feel fortunate to have chosen him for my surgery. I recommend Dr. Athwal at every opportunity to my friends and relatives.
