Contact Lenses

At Gulf South Eye Associates, we have a variety of contact lenses which enables us to fit every type of contact lens wearer. Below is a listing of the brands and types we offer our patients. Our fitting fee ensures a proper fit is achieved by our physicians and trained technicians, with the ability to fit patients with regular sphere, toric, multifocals, customized RGP (hard or Gasperm) lenses; this includes the Alden custom fit sphere and toric soft lenses as well. However, if you are a patient that is not in toric or multifocal lenses and are currently wearing contact lenses, you can bring your boxes or powers (power, base curve, and diameter) with you and the fitting fee would be reduced. The fees include additional fitting visits to ensure our patients are completely satisfied. We have a large inventory on site to service same day orders and are able to receive special orders within a week. Custom fits may take two to four weeks.
