The procedure for the calculation of the self-energy-corrected wave function of the bound electron in the field of the nucleus is discussed. We present the related formulas and discuss the numerical difficulties and the methods used to overcome them. The results of the calculation are presented for a wide range of ions. Possible applications of the numerically obtained wave functions are discussed.
