Jan Stahl MD

Doctor Details
Jan Stahl, M.D.


"I could say that what attracted me to the field of ophthalmology was that I was a physics major in college and loved the physics of optics and lasers and all the high tech devices we get to use, or that I love operating on and examining such a magnificent organ as the eye and this would all be true. The real treat, however, is that sight is one of the most important of the senses and restoring it for people is so incredibly satisfying that I couldn’t imagine a more rewarding occupation."

Summary: Life Changing Lasik Surgery
November 13th, 2017
I have been seeing Dr Stahl and the Denver Eye Surgeons since 1994. Due to my strong correction (-10.5 for contacts), I was not a candidate for lasik surgery for many years; but in 2013 that all changed. I had been unable to wear glasses without feeling disoriented for years and worried what would happen if I was ever told I could not wear contacts. I couldn't see the number of fingers I held up in front of my face past about 12 inches and could only see blobs of color after about 5 feet away. It has been 4 years since my lasik surgery with Dr Stahl and I am still seeing 20/20. After wearing glasses/contacts for 47 years, I can't even begin to describe the sense of freedom and excitement I have. I don't have to worry about being dependant on someone else as I grow older because I can't see. Thank you Dr Stahl and all the team at Denver Eye Surgeons for your support over the past 24 years. You ARE the ONLY group I trust with my eyes!
