Ortho K
(Orthokeratology)

Ortho-K is a non-surgical process which reshapes (flattens by compression) the cornea of the eye using contact lenses to reduce refractive errors (nearsightedness and astigmatism). Accelerated Ortho-K uses reverse-geometry contact lenses. Flattening the cornea reduces the focusing power of the eye. Since the amount of corneal flattening can be accurately controlled, it is possible to bring the eye into correct focus and compensate for the refractive error. After the contact lens is removed, the cornea retains its flattened shape for part or all of the remainder of the day. A retainer lens must be used each day to maintain the corneal flattening, or the myopia will revert to the pre-treatment level. [View Vision Demo] Ortho-K is also successful in treating some degrees of farsightness by steepening the central cornea.  Ask about Wave-designed Orthokeratology lenses!

FINGERPRINT

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.

DOCTOR

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 contact lens 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.
