Wave Kontact Lenses

Custom Kontact Lenses Designed SPECIALLY For You.

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 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.

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 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.
Dr. Pedro Gomez specializes in Orthokeratology, medical treatment that helps patients improve their vision without surgery, this non-surgical procedure is completely reversible. It is a Therapy, reshaping the cornea allowing children, adolescents and adults to live better without using glasses or lenses. The Ortho-k can sometimes be an excellent alternative to Lasik. Call now to the clinic for an appointment, your child may be a candidate for this treatment for myopia control.

Keratoconus Treatment in Houston

Keratoconus is a vision disorder that occurs when the normally round cornea (the front part of the eye) becomes thin and irregular (cone) shaped. This abnormal shape prevents the light entering the eye from being focused correctly on the retina and causes distortion of vision.

In its earliest stages, keratoconus causes slight blurring and distortion of vision and increased sensitivity to glare and light. These symptoms usually appear in the late teens or late 20s. Keratoconus may progress for 10-20 years and then slow in its progression. Each eye may be affected differently. As keratoconus progresses, the cornea bulges more and vision may become more distorted. In a small number of cases, the cornea will swell and cause a sudden and significant decrease in vision. The swelling occurs when the strain of the cornea's protruding cone-like shape causes a tiny crack to develop. The swelling may last for weeks or months as the crack heals and is gradually replaced by scar tissue. If this sudden swelling does occur, your doctor can prescribe eyedrops for temporary relief, but there are no medicines that can prevent the disorder from progressing.

Eyeglasses or soft contact lenses may be used to correct the mild nearsightedness and astigmatism that is caused by the early stages for keratoconus. As the disorder progresses and cornea continues to thin and change shape, rigid gas permeable contact lenses can be prescribed to correct vision adequately. In most cases, this is adequate. The contact lenses must be carefully fitted, and frequent checkups and lens changes may be needed to achieve and maintain good vision.

In a few cases, a corneal transplant is necessary. However, even after a corneal transplant, eyeglasses or contact lenses are often still needed to correct vision.
