Your Eye, Your Lens, Your Doctor
No two fingerprints are alike and the same is true for your eyes, especially the cornea (the clear tissue where a contact lens sits). Each cornea has its own distinct shape and texture, just like a fingerprint. So it makes sense that a contact lens should mirror the cornea.
Only trained Wave Providers offer Wave Contact Lenses custom designed from your corneal “fingerprint”. Wave’s special video camera and software digitally maps your cornea with thousands of numbers. Your doctor uses the map data and Wave’s special design software to create a custom lens that follows almost every tiny shape on your cornea. (Look at the astigmatism to the right.) 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.
Wave trained doctors are skilled and certified to use Wave Contact Lens Design Software for patients requiring correction of near or distance vision, astigmatism, combined reading and distance vision, keratoconus and post-surgical corrections. Doctors 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. Your doctor 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.
Wave Designs are available in:
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 of 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 your doctor about Wave’ designed Orthokeratology lenses. And make sure you watch this video from the Orthokeratology Academy of America.

Why Is Wave Better?
Wave lenses know exactly how the central and peripheral cornea are shaped. The fit follows the shape leading to a better, more comfortable lens.
Typical lenses do not follow the exact shape of the cornea, especially out in the periphery (round insert). A poor peripheral fit can result in blink discomfort.
Astigmatism: The map on the left is produced by the Wave software and shows the back surface of the lens. Notice how the astigmatism is only cut in the central portion of the lens. Makes sense doesn't it?
Keratoconus: For example, take the offset nipple cone below (right). The cone is asymmetric; so is the back surface of the lens (as shown in the (lower left) lens back surface map). Notice how the geometry is off center to accommodate the position of the nipple cone.
