MEDMONT MERIDIA CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER
A leading-edge topographer is critical to visualize the shape of the cornea (the clear window of the eye). Medmont is hailed as the leading manufacturer of topographers, with the model “E300” being the gold standard topographer for over a decade. Their newest topographer, the Meridia, improves upon the original E300 model by more accurately capturing your cornea in three dimensions. Increased topographical accuracy leads to custom lenses that more closely resemble your eye, which yields faster, healthier, and clearer outcomes.
WAVE CUSTOM LENS DESIGN
Lumen Optometric is the only office in Los Angeles County that employs WAVE to create 100% fully-custom lenses for your eyes. WAVE combines all the topographical (corneal shape) data from the Medmont Meridia and allows us to specify and manipulate every aspect of your lens design. Custom design software is extremely critical for both clarity and eye health because each point of the lens is based on information from your cornea.
Tip for inquiring patients – If you are told that you’re being fitted with custom lenses, ask to see your design. It should look similar to the screenshot above. If a doctor touts that they’re fitting a custom lens but is unable to show you a screenshot like the above where they can manipulate every aspect of every curve, they’re not designing a custom lens. All doctors will refer to their lenses as custom, but it is actually quite rare because of the difficult training, complicated CAD software, and cutting-edge equipment that is required.
