Corneal refractive surgery is widely used to correct myopia and astigmatism because of its safety, effectiveness and stability.Precision medicine is the future direction of development, and the demands for accuracy in corneal refractive surgery are also increasing, which has a direct impact on patient satisfaction.Nomogram, as a key design in refractive surgery, needs to be combined with several important predictors to quantify individual risk.Different surgical methods need different nomograms.In this paper, the effects of corneal surface surgery, lamellar surgery, modeling algorithm and possible factors such as patient’s sex, age, expected correction, corneal curvature, preoperative spherical equivalent, etc.on the predicted values were discussed.At the same time, the application of nomograms in corneal refractive surgery at home and abroad in recent years and the research progress of nomogram influencing factors were explored, in order to provide more and more accurate reference for clinical practice, to improve the accuracy of corneal refractive surgery and help patients achieve satisfactory postoperative visual quality.
