During this coronavirus era, we are open regular hours for returning and new patients. We have new telemedicine services, so some patients may be examined from home via video conferencing. We still stagger appointments for safe distancing. Patients and staff wear medical masks, with limited visitors in wait rooms. If you are sick or with fever, do not come in; call us first please. Take care.

Our Staff

Eye Associates of the South is owned by partner emeritus Joel Knight, M.D., and practice partners Rainna Bahadur, M.D., and Debra LaPrad, M.D. They lead a team that includes all-board-certified ophthalmologists across the spectrum of eye specialties. These fellowship trained physicians are some of the Southeastern United States' best doctors.

Since the founding of our practice in 1986, Eye Associates of the South's goal was – and continues to be – to provide the very best eye care and surgery to the people of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
