Dr. Thomas Azman and The Dry Eye Institute made a huge difference in my life. I no longer suffer from dry eye and my vision is clearer. My eyes are comfortable and no longer an issue. Dr. Azman is the kindest, most genuine Doctor I have ever met. He goes out of his way to make sure you understand everything and to make sure you are at ease. His staff is professional and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Thomas Azman!!!
Lasik and Dry Eye Management
I have been seeing Dr. Azman for quite some time, for dry eyes as well as lasik surgery follow ups. Personally I have tremendous problems with my dry eyes and occasional eye infections and Dr. Tom has always been right on with his treatment plan and resolves the issue quickly and professionally. He is one of the few doctors who follow up on you after your visits. I find this quite remarkable. I would recommend Dr. Tom and Dr. Irwin to anyone who needs any kind of vision care. Their staff is very knowledgeable, courteous and always ready to help answer any questions.
Color Blind to Color Corrected
I traveled from the West Coast to get the color correction test done. From the first emails and phone calls, they were very professional and friendly. I was very skeptical at first, but after meeting Dr. Thomas and his staff, they made me feel very comfortable with their knowledge and professionalism. Having operating in an environment that required color vision for so long without the correction, although it never came into play (actually having the requirement for color vision), my next career choice needed to be up front and tested for color vision. After a full day of testing, and failing just about every test, I was both discouraged and skeptical that they could help me. As it turns out, the system and test worked. They are true to their world, we first put on the glasses to see the prescription I would be getting, and WOW! Being color deficient for so long, the world looked brighter, more vivid and alive. They provided my wife with a set of glasses to show her I see the world and she was amazed. Her words “your world is muted”. I can’t thank Dr Thomas and his staff enough. Just seeing the worlds colors and how people without color deficiency see it is a gift. The costs and time were more than worth it. Anyone truly interested in color vision correction must visit his office, as he is the inventor and the only person I know of who does this work in the world. Thank you sir for helping me to embark on my next career in life knowing that I can and do pass the color test. The world is full of colors!

I would like to thank you for all of your help, support, and the individualized
attention you gave me through the entire colormax process. I’m sorry this letter has
taken so long to reach you, but I hope it finds you well. As you may recall, I came in
for an appointment in June of 2014 – I was applying for a pilot slot with the
Delaware Air National Guard, and through you, I saw a light in a dark in a dark
Being a professional pilot has begun to worry me lately, as up until recently, I never knew that I had some issues with color vision testing; it was during
the initial testing phase for a Navigator position with the United States Air Force, I learned that I had difficulties passing the red portion of the color vision test. I failed the test, and lost my slot… no words other than devastation and sorrow can describe how I felt: ‘Am I destined to lose my civilian pilot’s medical too? Will I have
problems with this in the future? I’m already a pilot now, I have no problems seeing
in color, it’s just those stupid tests… I’ve worked so hard to be where I am today, do
I have to give everything up now?’ These words continued to echo over and over in
my mind. But I was determined – determined to succeed somehow.
Fate must have heard my turmoil, because I was given a second chance with
the Delaware Air National Guard; I was told “if you can pass the color vision test,
we’ll interview you for a potential pilot slot.” This was a new opportunity that I never
thought was never possible, but how? How could I pass a test I knew I had no
chance at? I wouldn’t take no for an answer. After a brief google search, I found two
promising possibilities: 1, that colorblindness was cured in mice (and male pattern
baldness for that matter… another good prospect for me), and 2, there was a color
correction system by a doctor in the Baltimore area. ‘This is it,’ I thought, ‘my
Unfortunately, this is where my skepticism took hold. ‘How can he
guarantee a 100% pass rate? How can someone have figured out a way to counter
color vision deficiencies? Is this just another get your money type gimmick like
those men’s hair restoration products?’ These thoughts rang through my head as I
tried to contemplate the possibility of my dreams being fulfilled without deception.
To anyone questioning the validity and sincerity of Dr. Azman, I am here to tell you
to question no more:
From the first point I signed up to find out more about the color vision
correction system, I was truly humbled to see how much Dr. Azman
and his team cared. I scheduled a phone call to discuss the nature of
the system, and was contacted soon thereafter by his son: I
appreciated the fact that I didn’t feel pressured or overwhelmed at
any time, rather the conversation was very relaxed and informal with
no obligations. Every question I had was answered, with no dodging or
judgment. As a follow up to the initial talk, Dr. Azman himself called me
and left his personal cell phone number to contact him at anytime. One
would think that in today’s society, someone as seemingly important
as Dr. Azman wouldn’t have time, let alone even care, to distribute his
personal phone number to someone who’d only expressed an interest;
but here, I plainly saw that Dr. Azman only wanted to help (as a
testament to his sincerely kind nature). Dr. Azman and his team
worked diligently to find an appointment that would fit my schedule.
He kept in constant contact with me throughout the entire process,
and even picked me up from the train station. No wonder people come
to visit him from all over the world.
As for the color vision correction system, how do I say it any other way:
it is the real deal! Dr. Azman spent a large part of the day doing tests
to ensure I was given the proper contact match. Upon trying on my
new color correction contacts for the first time, I was blown away by
the changes I saw. A lot of things were subtle, yet extraordinary: blues
and purples became richer, reds became brighter, and greens became
textured. This new world I was exposed to showed me serene beauty…
I was awestruck! The contacts amazingly had the correct color
spectrum to allow me to see what I was missing, yet didn’t interfere
with my ability to see other colors. Although the contacts initially
made everything slightly darker in tint, I soon discovered that like with
sunglasses on, my eyes adapted quickly. I couldn’t stop smiling, the
technology Dr. Azman had created was so amazing! All I could think
was ‘this color correction system is revolutionary, seeing this beautiful
world in a new way is like seeing art for the first time. Dr. Azman has
pioneered the frontier that is color vision.’ I left that day with my new
contacts and an overwhelming sense of joy, coupled with hope for
what the future now held. Thanks to Dr. Azman, I felt unstoppable.
When it came time for the real test that I’d failed the first time, I had a
newfound confidence escorting me the whole way… and with it, I seized my dreams
and passed! I was given my pilot slot interview and a renewed hope for the future.
Although in the end, I was awarded an alternate position (to which i wasn’t called
up), I was invited to both apply again for the pilot slot and for a navigator position
as well. Because of the nature of the hiring board, I was up against some fierce
competition, but it was comforting to know that my color vision wouldn’t be a factor
in their interview. I finally felt like the playing field had been leveled.
Once again, Dr. Azman, thank you for your time, effort, and overwhelming
support. Most of all, thank you for giving me the ability to dream big!
– Adam H.
Thank you Dr Azman!
This is a short note to let you and the team know yesterday I went for my medical and was passed as fit for another year.
At this time the relief I felt was indescribable to know that at least for now my career is secure.
Please accept for yourself and your staff my most sincere appreciation and thanks for helping me through what was truly a most stressful few months.

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.
–Cindy W., Lutherville, Maryland
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.
– Eric Holmes, Baldwin, Maryland
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.!
