I have a long and complicated vision history and this man has been a godsend for me. After first seeing him in 2019 when no other surgeon wanted to touch me, I flew out to San Diego for a consultation and was seeing better than I could with my contacts/glasses! I came back to see him 5 years later for an exam and we touched up my eyes with the laser and again I’m seeing great! If you have a high correction, don’t give up until you’ve visited this clinic! Also, his entire staff are wonderful people!

I came to Dr. Motwani after multiple surgeries with local eye surgeons. I'm in a better place now than I was before I came to him and I appreciate his willingness to try. People in my position often have two problems: 1) Poor vision due to multiple past procedures and 2) Doctors being unwilling to operate due to lower chance of success. Dr. Motwani takes that chance and for me resulted in a net improvement. My vision is not perfect, but it is more useable than it was before I came to him and allows me to live my live with less stress. Thank you.
What a wonderful man and talent. He is sharing his gifts to those like me who do not have very good eyesight. I love talking to him before, during and post surgery. What he charges is truly a blessing and proof that he is more interested in helping mankind and not just in this for himself. I cannot say enough about this eye doctor and his wonderful/knowledgeable staff. I flew into SD just to see him and have a touch-up. Doc, be careful and don't try and lift too much in the weight room! :) Very Respectfully.

I’m thankful for their caring approach when I was nervous to do the procedure. I was told by my eye doctor that I was not a good lasik candidate, but I’m thankful that I checked with Dr. Motwani because now after receiving lasik I have 20/15 vision! Waking up and being able to see right away is so amazing. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between LASIK & PRK surgeries?

Will I achieve 20/20 vision after getting LASIK?

While many patients achieve 20/20 vision or better after LASIK, results can vary. Factors such as your initial prescription, corneal thickness, and healing process can affect the outcome. Your surgeon will discuss realistic expectations based on your individual circumstances.

How long will vision correction last after my LASIK surgery?

LASIK provides long-lasting vision correction for the majority of patients. However, it’s important to note that your eyes can still change over time due to aging or other factors. Some patients may require enhancements or glasses for certain activities later in life.

Can I drive immediately after getting LASIK surgery?

Most patients experience some discomfort for about 6 hours (like a dirty contact lens in their eye), and blurred vision following their procedure. Most patients receive a mild relaxant such as Valium prior to their surgery, so they sleep through the discomfort and wake up the next morning able to see. Most patients for primary LASIK are able to drive the next day. It’s essential to follow the specific post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Motwani for a safe and comfortable recovery.

How long is the recovery after having LASIK?

The recovery period after LASIK surgery typically lasts around 12 to 24 hours, and most patients experience improved vision by the next morning or even later that day.. However, it’s essential to follow Dr. Motwani’s post-operative guidelines for a smooth and successful recovery.

How long does the surgery usually take?

LASIK surgery itself typically takes about 10 to 15 minutes per eye. However, you should plan to be at the surgical center for a few hours to complete pre-operative preparations and post-operative evaluations.

What can I expect from my consultation?

At Motwani’s San Diego LASIK Institute, we prioritize your comfort and care. Our center is one of the most modern and comfortable in San Diego, and its inviting atmosphere decreases the stress of having a procedure on your eyes. The examination will likely be more thorough than at other laser centers, as Dr. Motwani conducts ongoing research for publication in peer–reviewed journals. This entails conducting extensive imaging to offer the best possible diagnostic. You can expect to receive expert insights and recommendations, as well as an opportunity to address any questions or concerns you may have about LASIK or other vision correction options, such as cataract surgery. Rest assured that we do not employ a high-pressure sales approach to promote unnecessary products or services.

Can we treat both eyes in the same day?

Yes, LASIK is commonly performed on both eyes during the same visit. Treating both eyes simultaneously can provide quicker visual recovery and convenience for the patient.

What are the potential side effects and risks?

While LASIK is considered safe and effective, like any surgical procedure, it carries some risks. Potential side effects may include dry eyes, glare, halos, or difficulty with night vision, though these are usually temporary and improve over time. Serious complications are rare but can include infection or overcorrection/undercorrection of vision. Your surgeon will discuss these risks with you in detail before your surgery.

Are any side effects permanent or can they be treated?

Dr. Motwani’s exceptional expertise ensures that all side effects are treated, leading to short-lasting effects and preventing any permanence, allowing patients to enjoy improved vision and enhanced satisfaction. Dr. Motwani is able to treat and repair virtually all of the known LASIK associated problems or complications. Cornea Revolution, our corneal repair practice, is dedicated to repairing corneas and reversing damage from prior procedures. Dr. Motwani is the leading surgeon in the nation for successfully reversing damage and repairing the cornea.

Contoura™ Vision LASIK

Our Wavelight Contoura Topographic Guided Laser System, using the LYRA Protocol, is transforming vision correction. We can now create eyes with the potential to surpass the normal human eye.

PRK Eye Surgery

PRK is a laser correction procedure where the surface skin is removed to reshape the cornea. It’s a good option for patients who don’t want a corneal flap, have thinner corneas, or require a special procedure due to past surgery, disease, or trauma.

TransPRK and EPI Lasik

We offer a specialized version of PRK called Transepithelial PRK (TransPRK) is just as effective as LASIK in correcting your vision and also EPI-lasik; it’s a variation of PRK whereby the epithelium is removed as a continuous sheet, using a mechanical instrument called an epi-keratome.

Modified Monovision Lasik

This procedure allows the brain to neuro-adapt and regain depth perception by carefully balancing the difference between the two eyes. Recent studies have shown its effectiveness.

Laser Vision Correction Procedures

LASIK and PRK encompass various laser vision corrections; Alcon WaveLight EX500 is the top US choice for its advanced features, while VISX lags behind despite its cost-effectiveness.
