Reviews

My experience with Eye Associates of the South and Dr. Rainna Bahadur has been absolutely transformational. I have been a dentist on the Gulf Coast for 35 years. I am a graduate of Gulfport High School and I graduated from MS State University and LSU School of Dentistry. I recently had cataract surgery by Dr. Bahadur, and it was an absolute success.

I chose to receive the Vivity Extended Vision lens and I no longer need glasses or contacts to see. I have my distance vision and near. I am seeing as good now at 68 as when I was 20 years old. The cataract surgery was successful but the most important part to me was Dr. Bahadur diagnosing my severe dry eye problems due to cancer radiation treatments. If that problem had not been solved, I could have had long term cornea damage and possibly needed a corneal transplant.

Dr. Bahadur’s superb diagnosis and treatment was absolutely outstanding. Also, I am an avid golfer and I am now able to see where the balls go and now have a great golf game. The entire staff from the front to the back along with the office manager are the absolute best.

I am incredibly grateful to the professionalism they have shown and the wonderful treatment they provided me.

I have been in Dr. Debra LaPrad’s care for some time now. She is very nice professional person and attends well to my needs with my eye issues. Her nurse, Chris communicates well me as the checks / test of each visit are performed.

It is a very pleasant office visit for me each appointment. I recommend Dr. Debra to anyone in need of professional eye care services.

The STAFF is awesome. It's not a Dental Office but EVERY Staff member has a large SMILE. They are excited to HELP and that goes a Long way with the Patient.

My daughter had a great experience. Unlike last time at another eye location with a different eye doctor. We were treated very professional. I recommend Eye Associates of the South to anyone looking for a new place to go for their annual eye exam.

I am a relatively new patient. I am always impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of the entire staff. I have recently moved a good bit away, but plan to make the trip in order to see Dr Bahadur. I have more confidence in her than in any eye Dr I have seen before.

Dr. Benigno is always very helpful an patient as I have quite interesting issues with my eyes. It is nice to have a Dr listen and understand what is going on even as unusual as my condition is. The new office bldg in Ocean Springs is a Major Bonus!!! It’s nice, clean and the staff are very helpful with the newly automated check in process.

I always receive great service at Eye Associates. I’ve never had to wait too long, and both doctors I see treat me respectfully. They listen to my complaint and give me great advice. Everyone is very pleasant.

Everyone there are very professional and kind. The receptionist was sweet and patient with everyone she came in contact with. The nurse and Dr. Benigno listened to what I had going on and took the time to explain to me my options and thoroughly explained why I given those options. I can see better than ever before. They were very thorough. Lori at the optical center took her time as well with me on finding the right glasses and their prices fit my budget.
