Dr. Manoj Motwani performs corrective eye surgery at Motwani LASIK Institute in San Diego, California. Recognized for his ability to perform a range of LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) and alternative refractive surgeries, Dr. Manoj Motwani also provides excellent patient care, attending to each patient personally so he or she receives the most thorough attention. Dr. Manoj Motwani studied biology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the oldest technological institute in the United States, before attending Albany Medical College and earning his medical degree. Having served his medical internship at Albany Medical Center, he proceeded to New York Medical College in New York City to complete his ophthalmology residency. Dr. Manoj Motwani founded Motwani Lasik Institute in 1999 and began treating patients with hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism, and other optical conditions that refractive surgery can effectively remedy.

During his career as an ophthalmologist, Dr. Manoj Motwani has completed significant research in the surgical technique of aspheric ablation, correctly determining early on that that this method was superior to wavefront-guided ablation and would become the leading technology. His conclusion has proven correct, and as aspheric ablation has moved into the forefront of refractive surgery, the approach has undergone further refinement through superior technology, such as the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser. At Motwani LASIK Institute, Dr. Manoj Motwani utilizes this advanced laser, a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that applies the latest research and high-tech functions, such as high-speed eye tracking, for superior accuracy, safety, and control. Patients of Dr. Manoj Motwani can also ask about custom photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and Epi-LASIK (E-LASIK) procedures.
