The Visionary Optics team recently spoke with Dr. Amjad Badwan, OD at Wake Family Eye Care in Cary, North Carolina, about how adding the sMap3D™ to his practice has improved both revenue and patient satisfaction. Dr. Badwan previously considered purchasing a different scleral topographer, but he opted for the sMap3D once he learned more about its advanced technology and tested it at a conference in Fort Lauderdale.
“The innovative customization initially caught my eye,” he said. “I thought the customization would be easy to adapt and would be a great addition to our office. Working with the sMap3D absolutely improved our revenue. It is hands-down the most lucrative machine that we have purchased.”

sMap3D In Practice
Before using the sMap3D, getting the right lens fitted required a lot of time. Patients usually had to come in for three to five visits before getting their lenses.
Our experience with the sMap3D has been amazing. It has decreased chair time, increased patient and staff satisfaction, and increased revenue, and because of all those things, it’s a game changer for patients, staff and doctors. We can help more patients more quickly with the sMap3D. Now, instead of three to five visits to complete the fitting, it takes only one to three visits. That is unheard of for scleral lenses.
Once you understand which patients you can fit, you realize that there are a lot of patients you weren’t sure how to best fit before, and you are able to help them now with the sMap3D. Life is easier for staff, patients, and doctors. With less chair time per patient, fewer visits, and more lens sales, we have boosted income and overall efficiency in our office.
Working with the sMap3D has absolutely improved our revenue. It’s hands-down the most lucrative machine that we have purchased. We made over $100,000 in revenue with the sMap3D and lenses within a little over a year.
