The Nallasamy Formula is a machine learning-based IOL power calculation tool developed based on historical medical records at Kellogg Eye Center. This formula has been optimized for use with biometry data from the Haag-Streit LENSTAR LS 900 optical biometer in combination with the Alcon SN60WF biconvex intraocular lens (IOL). The Nallasamy Formula may also be used with data from other optical biometers, which provide clinically equivalent biometry data as compared to the LENSTAR LS 900. It may also be used with other biconvex IOL models in the power range of +6.00 to +30.00D WARNING: Using other data sources or IOL models than the original ones the model was derived on, may reduce the overall performance of the formula.
The Nallasamy Formula is a tool to assist physicians in selecting the appropriate IOL for their patients. The results obtained by the calculator are not intended to serve as instruction from the author. Surgeons must arrive at their own independent determination regarding the proper treatment for their patients and are solely responsible for the refractive outcome. By using the Nallasamy Formula, you agree to waive and hold the author harmless from any claims you may have arising out of your use of this tool.
The Nallasamy Formula is designed as a medical device and fulfils the essential requirements for this type of product, including data protection. The exchange of data with the Nallasamy Formula is done via secure and encrypted connections only and all data is stored encrypted to protect it against unauthorized access. All data identifying the patient is encrypted directly on the user’s PC and is not accessible to the service provider at any time. Only information relevant for the calculation of IOL is collected and processed by the formula. The Servers are based in the United States.
