Recognized as the foremost Lasik surgeon in San Diego, Dr. Motwani is also considered an authority in the field with his advanced laser techniques, including those he personally developed.
Dr. Motwani is licensed to perform medicine and surgery in California.
He is a member of the American Medical Association, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
An Early Pioneer in Laser Eye Surgery
Although Dr. Motwani initially certified and started performing LASIK on broad-beam lasers, he was one of the early adopters of the Nidek EC-5000 scanning slit laser technology.
He has continued to be on the forefront of techniques with this advanced laser system, and has had excellent results in the use of wide reshaping zones to minimize halos and night glare, treatment of high astigmatism, and repair of eyes with prior refractive procedures.
Dr. Motwani was also an early adopter of Moria microkeratome systems, the flap making devices used by many leading refractive surgeons. Dr. Motwani used the original Moria LSK One, which although one of the most technically challenging microkeratomes for the surgeon, was widely considered one of the most reliable for the patient.
He was also one of the early adopters of the Carrazio-Barraquer microkeratome, which further increased the flexibility and reliability of the procedure. He has since become one of the early users of the new Moria M2 microkeratome, which has further increased the safety and reliability of corneal flap creation, and enhanced the flexibility available to the surgeon to operate on difficult and challenging eyes.
A Hands-On Difference
Dr. Motwani performs a variety of refractive procedures including PRK, LASIK, and LASEK. His personal philosophy is that he will not perform a procedure because it is the latest hype or gimmick, but will only perform those procedures that are proven to work effectively and safely, and he will always work to advance the state of the art.
