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 the first in the United States to utilize the unique, patented aspects of the Nidek EC-5000 to perform aspheric corneal ablations in 2002.

His early work began to show that wavefront guided ablations were not the best answer to get better visual results, but that prolate wavefront optimized ablation patterns were the future. Much of the rest of the profession has come to accept aspheric ablations as the future. Dr. Motwani observed the development of the Alcon Allegretto Eye-Q Wave Excimer Laser System for several years. As it became obvious that this system was taking his aspheric ablation work to the next level, he acquired the latest 400 Hertz version of this system which he considers to be the most advanced, fastest, most accurate laser available. - See more at:

Over the course of the past two decades, LASIK has become the most well known name in refractive eye surgery in the US. Millions of Americans who suffer from myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (misshapen cornea) have achieved heightened improvement in their eyesight having undergone this wonderful and highly effective procedure. But for those of you who have yet to experience its transcendent results, you may be questioning how the procedure works. There are many myths associated with LASIK Laser Eye Surgery.
