Nomograms for LASIK at Stahl Vision Laser Eye Center in Dayton Ohio

Glossary: The Stahl Formula is an advanced nomogram that corrects the laser setting for each individual patient.  Nomograms can correct for differences in patients such as age and gender, differences in technique or procedure such as between LASIK or PRK and differences in local conditions or seasonality such as humidity and laser calibration.

About Laser Eye Surgery Nomograms    

One of the most critical factors that can affect your outcome after LASIK surgery is the nomogram that the LASIK surgeon uses. A nomogram is a unique group of detailed settings that is programmed into the laser for each patient. Some centers don’t use a nomogram at all. But the best results are achieved when your treatment is tailored specifically for you-for each person based on their age, gender, prescription, and dozens of other factors! And the very best nomograms come from years of experience, tens of thousands of patients, and honestly a lot of hard work. 

Using this advanced technology, years of experience, and tracking the results of thousands of patients to fine tune results for each person based on their unique eyes. Dr. Stahl is achieving results among the top in the nation.  With the Stahl Formula nomogram 99.3% or patients are 20/20 or better, and 81% are better than 20/20! *  For many patients, this is better than they have ever seen with glasses or contacts, often with better night vision as well.

How Do We Create Our World Class Nomograms?

  • First, we carefully control the laser suite climate-specifically the temperature and humidity, as well corneal hydration-to keep them constant.
  • Then we use the very latest wavefront measurement technology to precisely analyze and monitor each patient before and after his or her Laser Eye Surgery. We use this both to develop their treatment plan and to track their results.
  • By using computer modeling we correct for variables such as gender, age, the difference between wavefront measurements and conventional refraction, effect of correcting High Order Aberration on Low Order Aberrations such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and many other variables. From these calculations we are then able to create a "nomogram".
  • To implement and apply the nomogram, we use software designed and developed by Dr. Brian Stahl to customize an individual treatment plan for each patient.
  • The nomogram is only as good as the laser used to deliver it, so we perform our Laser Eye Surgery procedures with our Wavelight Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Excimer Laser using CustomVision™.
  • Then we do it all over, and over and over-each successive nomogram becoming more accurate than the first. We never stop improving our results.
