Charlotte Contact Lens Institute

The AXL Wave performs corneal tomography to monitor for progression of corneal conditions, to determine candidacy for cross-linking, and to assess for proper fit of custom contact lenses, including orthokeratology and scleral contact lenses.

With cornea tomography maps, Dr. Cerenzie designs freeform contact lenses based on thousands of data points, resulting in an optimized fit and superior visual quality.
Scleral topography customizes scleral lens alignment by mapping a patient’s scleral shape up to an 18 mm diameter. If a scleral lens is uncomfortable, the majority of the time this discomfort is caused by poorly fitting edges. Scleral topography allows for precise landing of the scleral lens, preventing guess work during the fitting process. In addition, the scleral topography map will optimize fitting over irregular scleral profiles (the majority of scleral profiles are irregular) & scleral lens obstacles such as pterygia, pinguecula, blebs, etc. i.e, no more red eyes! This customization allows patients to have an optimized fit, resulting in comfortable wear.

With the Pentacam AXL Wave software, free-form technology will be utilized for all orthokeratology, corneal gas-permeable, and scleral contact lenses. This allows for total customization of lenses, as each curve of the contact lens will be aligned to the patient’s corneal and scleral elevation and not based on a diagnostic lens fitting.

Biometry capabilities help to monitor axial length change for patients prescribed myopia management with incredible consistency. The earliest signs of myopic progression will be detected within 100th of a mm.

Wavefront aberrometry can be utilized to design wavefront guided optics which can dramatically improve vision in specialty contact lenses
