GP Speicalists Introduces iSight Custom Soft Contacts

GP Specialists, the custom soft and gas permeable contact lens lab, today announced the re-branding of their entire custom made to order (MTO) soft contact lens product line to iSight™. Two years ago, GP Specialists, Inc. acquired American BioCurve, Inc. along with all assets and product lines including BioCurve MTO toric and sphere soft contact lenses.

“For years BioCurve MTO soft contact lenses defined custom soft lens manufacturing, offering over one million parameter combinations and the industries longest warranty,” said Matthew Pogue, Director of Sales for GP Specialists. “Since the acquisition, we have been enhancing our manufacturing processes and have recently launched several new products, including our new silicone hydrogel iSight™ SiHy custom contact lens, so it made sense to re-introduce our enhanced contact lens designs and new products under a single unified brand name – iSight™ custom contact lenses.”

Capitalizing on over 20 years of soft contact lens manufacturing experience, the new iSight™ brand of soft contact lenses will offer one of the largest portfolios of made to order products in the industry. The iSight family includes:iSight lens and 3 pack image
• iSight DW Sphere and Toric contact lenses
• iSight Gold Sphere and Toric contact lenses
• iSight SiHy Silicone Hydrogel Sphere and Toric contact lenses
• iSight MCL Multifocal Sphere and Toric contact lenses
• iSight Aphakic contact lenses
• iSight Pediatric contact lenses

“The addition of soft contact lenses to the GP Specialists family of products makes us one of the most comprehensive specialty contact lens labs in the country,” said Mark Cosgrove, Director of Operations. “From standard gas permeable contact lenses to large diameter scleral contact lenses; from ortho-k to custom soft, there really isn’t any contact lens that GP Specialists can’t make.”

Background: GP Specialists has been manufacturing gas permeable contact lenses for more than 35 years. Originally based in Phoenix, Arizona, the lab was relocated to San Clemente, California in 2003 where it began to increase its ortho-k contact lens business. Then in 2011 GP Specialists purchased American BioCurve and moved the lab into their larger facility in San Diego to allow for our increased capacity. Today GP Specialists is one of the world leaders in the field of orthokeratology contact lenses offering its FDA approved Fargo™ series, Gobal-OK Vision’s GOV series, Paragon’s CRT contact lenses and now our new iSee™ advanced ortho-k contact lens. Additionally, with the purchase of American BioCurve, GP Specialists now also offers the custom soft contact lenses.
