These are the 1 day post-op visual results of the last 50 patients in succession as of this writing who had completed LASIK done by Dr. Motwani.  These are not the final visual results, as in many cases the vision continues to improve as healing occurs, and often those who achieve “better than 20/20” vision do so after a few weeks to few months of healing time.   

They do not include patients who could not achieve 20/20 best corrected vision pre-operatively due to some sort of eye disease or issue, and only include patients who never had any refractive surgery before.

These results are not a promise or guarantee (legal disclaimer), and any prospective patient should discuss their particular situation with Dr. Motwani.  They are offered here in a transparent effort to show how good Dr. Motwani’s results are.  They will be updated from time to time with a fresh set of 50 successive patients to attempt to keep the results relatively recent.   To report this takes some time and effort on part of the medical staff, so we can’t be responsible for the occasional typo, but we try really hard to make this as accurate as possible.  Sometimes if the patient rapidly had improvement over a few days due to healing we note that. 

To ensure privacy, information provided will be limited to pre-operative refraction, age of patient, and 1 day post-operative visual result.  Those patients who are in the presbyopic age category (40+), and elect to have the special Balanced Modified Monovision correction to aid with reading will have a vision denoting their visual result for their reading eye.  That result is listed as a “J” number, which is reading visual acuity.  The lower the J number, the smaller the print read. The goal is usually J2 vision, which is equivalent to being able to read 5 point print. 

To reading the refraction:  the first number is the sphere which denotes myopia (nearsightedness) with a “-“ or hyperopia (farsightedness) with a “+”; the second number after the comma is the amount of astigmatism, and the third number after the “x” is the axis of astigmatism.  The right eye for a patient is the one on top, and the left eye is on bottom.  Plano denotes a “zero” spherical correction.

Note: there is no mention of technology, laser used, or flap device used.  This is because the results of a procedure are a combination of the choices of the surgeon.  These include not only the right combination of technologies, but also the accuracy of the pre-operative measurements, the experience and abilities of the surgeon, and intra-operative decisions made during the procedure.
