I have advanced Keratoconus requiring special contacts which can be very difficult to fit. Dr. Irwin is without a doubt the most knowledgeable doctor I have seen in the 37 years I have had KC. When fitting me with contacts, the process cannot be rushed and Dr. Irwin did not rush, even though I had flown in from outside of the U.S. and only had 10 days to get things right. His staff was A+ and the whole experience was far above my experience with other nationally known U.S. doctors who treat KC.
If I was a regular patient without any unusual complications I would probably find a practitioner who accepts insurance or is less expensive. But my case is complicated and complicated is what this practice does best. While expensive, long term I have no doubt that Dr. Irwin has saved me money and given me many more years of comfortable vision, the latter being something other doctor’s were not able to do.

This patient had Radial Keratotomy (RK) Eye Surgery around 25 years ago. The surgery was successful and he did not have to wear glasses for distance or reading for 20 years. About 5 years ago his vision started to give him problems; blurry vision, fluctuation of vision and other vision challenges. He has been to many eye doctors who were not able to accommodate his vision and comfort needs. Dr. Irwin Azman worked with this patients to design custom fitted scleral lenses. He is now able to return to his regular activities, play golf and drive his car safely.
Dr. Azman specializes in the treatment of Post RK Complications, Post LASIK Complications, Keratoconus and other irregular corneal conditions, and Dry Eye Treatment.
I have been under Dr. Azman’s treatment for my dry eyes. He is very attentive and thorough – always giving detailed explanations and answering all my questions in a way that I am able to fully understand. Dr. Azman also contacts me if there is a new treatment or medication that he feels would improve my condition. I will admit that sometimes there is an extensive wait in the office, but I can only assume he is giving other patients the same detailed care that he is giving me! The Azman staff is very gracious and lovely – always greeting me with a smile and genuinely asking how I am. The office itself is very clean and the communication between the different areas seems to flow smoothly. I highly recommend Dr. Azman due to his attention to detail and his expertise!

I have tried contact lenses on four different occasions, without success, before I visited Dr. Azman. Although other doctors had told me I had dry eyes, their solution was to simply prescribe a different brand of contact lens rather than to address the underlying problem. On each occasion, the end result was that the lenses bothered me so much that I just stopped wearing them. Dr. Azman’s commitment to correcting the dryness in my eyes was a refreshing and effective approach to my vision issues. For the first time, I feel that contact lenses will actually be a viable choice for me. It’s fantastic.

Dr Azman has been my eye doctor for more than 25 years. Recently he has treated my eyes for dry eyes. He is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable about treating dry eyes. I didn’t know how bad my eyes felt until he treated them. Even though I wear contacts, my vision was slightly impaired due to dry eyes. Once Dr. Azman started treatment, my eyes felt so much better and my vision changed again due to improvement of moisture in the eye. I put my trust in Dr. Azman.

For the last 10+ years I have been struggling with my vision. My hard lens were not manageable, falling out, not fitting right and an over all pain to deal with. Finally my vision became impaired and I was with out lenses. I was referred to Dr. Azmen by my original eye doctor and I could not be happier. Dr. Azman and his team took care of my every need. I know have the best vision i could imagine and a set of contacts I truly enjoy. I wish I had found Dr. Azman 20 years ago.

As a 60+ aged patient, Dr. Irwin Azman has kept me in contacts that correct both my close up and distance vision. Before coming to him, my previous doctor of 20 plus years told me that I needed to move away from contacts back to glasses. So, I am delighted with Dr. Irwin’s solution. I am very pleased and impressed with the entire staff at the eye center. Everyone is courteous, knowledgeable and professional in their interaction with me. I have recommended friends in the past and will continue to do so.!

Dr. Azman and his staff at Azman Eye Care have been like family to me for the past 5 years. I had a scratched cornea with a mild infection the first time I came in, and he was able to quickly diagnose the issue and send me home with recommendations and a few prescriptions. I was better and back to work in no time! I stand by their products and continue to use them everyday, and I have yet to have any eye health issues. They also sent me a card congratulating me on my marriage! They are wonderful people, both personally and professionally.
Dr Irwin Azman explained what and why he was doing each part of my contact lens exam, all of the testing, as well as the results. He showed me my scans and mappings and told me what he was looking for; what was normal and what wasn’t, whether or not there was any cause for concern on my part. I’ve never had a doctor go into the level of detail or spend the time to answer all of my questions as he did. As a result, I now have a much better understanding of what’s going on with my eyes. I can’t say enough good things about Dr Azman and his staff.
