GP General Discussion

In the United States, after receiving their FDA Pre-Market Approval For specific information on custom-designed lenses, contact your (PMA), almost all companies that are PMA holders chose to produce their independent laboratory. In this context, custom-designed refers not only to material in semi-finished buttons which they supply to independent spherical lenses, but also to toric and multifocal lenses. Many independent laboratories for custom manufacture and distribution. Because there are laboratories are members of the Contact Lens Manufacturers Association. over 300 such laboratories who often affix their own trade name to these To access addresses, phone number, etc., visit the Gas Permeable Lens lenses, it is neither practical nor useful to list them all. Therefore, we have Institute's searchable online database: www.gpli.info. chosen to provide the basic characteristics of the custom design materials.
