What are Wave Contact Lenses?

Top Rated Doctors Performing Wave Custom Contact Lens Solutions in Amherst, Clarence, Williamsville

Just as no two fingerprints are the same, neither are two eyes. This is especially true with your cornea, the clear tissue where your contact lens sits. The cornea may look smooth and regular, but in fact its shape and texture are irregular.

Wave Contact Lenses are designed like no other lens. A special camera called a corneal topographer creates a topographic map that digitally describes your cornea with thousands of numbers. With Wave's special design software, your practitioner uses the data from the map to create a custom lens that follows almost every tiny curve and shape on your cornea. In the width of a hair, there may be as many as 10 distinct curves on the back of the lens.

With so many curves, Wave lenses offer unrivaled comfort and sharper optics. Many unsuccessful contact lens wearers are successful Wave lens users.

Why order off the shelf contact lenses? Wave makes them just as nature intended. For more information on Wave Contact Lenses call us at (716) 770-2020.

We are skilled Wave trained doctors and Certified to use Wave Contact Lens Design Software for contact lens patients requiring correction of near or distance vision, astigmatism, combined reading and distance vision, keratoconus and post surgical corrections. We also use Wave Software to create custom Orthokeratology lenses, a gentle, reversible, non-surgical vision correction procedure.

Wave’s Custom Designed Lenses differ greatly from plain “mass produced” lenses. We will specify the lens diameter and thickness for comfort and adjust the position of the optics for best visual performance. In all there are 26 different adjustments, offering infinite design possibilities.

Is Ortho-K right for you in Buffalo, Amherst, Kenmore, Tonawanda?

Single Vision: For distance vision until your mid forties when bifocals are usually necessary for up close activities like reading. Wave's thinner single vision lenses often replace other brand's thicker, less comfortable lenses.

Bifocal: Simultaneous distance and near vision without reading glasses. Your doctor adjusts the Wave design to match your pupil for maximum near and far vision performance. As with all designs, Wave's attention to the lens periphery ensures precise centration. Next the proper tear film thickness is optimized across the lens until the designer is satisfied.

Astigmatism: Wave designs a custom lens that duplicates your cornea’s (football) shape. The fit is unsurpassed. Other lenses offer a “get as close as we can” approach.

Keratoconus & Post Refractive: Most challenging and most in need of Wave’s custom “match the cornea” design philosophy. Wave providers, instead, design a lens that is specific to your keratoconic eye. There are an infinite number of shapes so Wave offers an infinite number on lenses.

NightLens Orthokeratology: A non-surgical, temporary vision correction procedure that allows most “Ortho K” users to go all day without lenses or glasses. Read a real world example. Ask us about Wave’ designed Orthokeratology lenses.
