Wave Contact Lens System, What Is It?

  • Custom Bifocal Contacts: Finally contacts that really work!
  • Dr. David Bartels is the only optometrist in Buffalo certified in Wave contact lenses.
  • 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.

Benefits of The Wave Contact Lens System

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

Who should consider Wave Contact Lenses?

Bifocal patients, keratoconus patients, transplant patients, post refractive surgery patients and other difficult-to-fit eyes should consider Wave Contact Lens Designs.

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 RGP lenses do not follow the exact shape of the cornea, especially in the periphery. A poor peripheral fit can result in blink discomfort.

Our office is authorized to design and dispense Wave Contact Lens Designs, the ultimate custom contact lens. We video map the shape of your cornea and position and diameter of your pupil to create a, perfect fit with perfect optics. Ask about Wave Lenses.
