Dry Eyes

After several days of treatment, I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only my vision improved but also the pain I had previously experienced had disappeared….my treatment from Dr Thomas Azman and the other members of Dr Azman’s office was handled with expertise and professionalism.

I was simply told by my previous optometrist that I “am not a candidate” for contact lenses.

I am currently a patient of Dr. Irwin Azman. I underwent cataract surgery of my right eve in January 2003 and now have an astigmatism problem in that eye. In addition. I have a cataract in my left eye and also have the normal reading vision problems that comes with age. I was simply told by my previous optometrist that I “am not a candidate” for contact lenses. That was that. Nothing else was said. So I continued with glasses. Since going to Dr. Irwin Azman, he and his staff have spent an enormous amount of time doing tests and fitting me for contact lenses. Even though I get frustrated. Dr. Irwin Azman persists in trying to keep “tweaking” the prescription to make my vision as good as possible. I now can see better with my contacts than with my glasses!! Dr. Irwin Azman has taken a lot of time and effort in order for me to be able to wear contact lenses and I would not hesitate referring anyone wanting the same.

Orthokeratology, A better alternative to surgery.

Precision Accelerated Orthokeratology
I had originally planned on having the Lasik procedure done, but found out I wasn’t a good candidate. I never heard of Precision Accelerated Orthokeratology when I came in to Dr. Irwin Azman’s office. I was planning on getting my prescription renewed for glasses and contacts, until Dr. Irwin Azman informed me about his non-surgical procedure. WOW! What a blessing! Definitely a better alternative to surgery. It’s great not having to worry about things blowing in to my eyes, and having to take the contacts out to get the debris out, or having to be extra careful when rubbing my eyes. I could go on and on about what I no longer have to worry about, but the biggest plus for me is being able to go to the pool and beach, and not worry about keeping my eyes closed under water. I recommend Precision Accelerated Orthokeratology to anyone who wants the freedom. I can’t believe one day I was wearing contacts, and the following morning didn’t have to wear any! Thanks to Dr. Irwin Azman.

I was “just another patient”

I would like to say that honestly, my experience with your, Dr Irwin Azman’s, office has been the most satisfying eye doctor experiences thus far. I feel like you, Dr Irwin Azman, actually care about my condition and all that is necessary to complete the diagnosis and treatment is performed in a timely and efficient manner. My past experience with contact lenses and exams was very nonchalant: it seemed the doctor’s didn’t really care and that I was “just another patient”. During my first appointment, I received tests that I had never had, which are supposedly required prior to contact lens wearing. I felt cheated by the other places I had been to and I strongly believe that the lack of attention to my condition undoubtedly led to the damage in my corneas. After I was referred to your facility, Azman Eye Care, I instantly felt confident that I would receive the care I needed when I visited your facility. My expectations were exceeded and I am now on the road to recovery and hope to once again wear contacts in the near future. If I hadn’t made an appointment with your office and continued wearing the “wrong” contacts, I would have caused even more damage to my eyes. My pleasant experience with your office, the friendly personnel and the generally comfortable atmosphere, enable me to recommend your office to friends and family without hesitation.

Contact lenses: I was told “that’s as good as it gets”.

It is with great pleasure that I testify to the wonderful treatment I have received at the Azman Eye Care Clinic. Prior to becoming a patient here, my past experiences were unsatisfactory — as despite my complaints to one doctor about not seeing clearly with the contacts he prescribed, I was told “that’s as good as it gets”. Had I continued in his “care”, I would have required corneal transplants. The last doctor I saw prior to the Dr Irwin Azman , in addition to not noticing my corneas were again very dry, was prescribing lenses for me that were not even being manufactured. At the Azman Clinic I feel like I’m the only patient there. The care and patience extended to me make me feel quite certain I’m in “good hands” with professionals who sincerely care about fitting me with proper lenses and a treatment schedule to keep my corneas from ever approaching the poor state they were in when I first arrived for treatment. I won’t hesitate to recommend the Azman Center to anyone!

“You get what you pay for.”

First, I have been wearing contact lenses since I was 20, twenty years. They were quite new then, and I have to say not very comfortable. I experienced a great deal of discomfort and could not keep a pair for long due to protein deposits. It got to the point that I only wore my contact lenses on special occasions. I could not possibly wear them daily. Dr Irwin Azman never gave up though, as new lenses hit the market, they hit my eyes!! We finally found lenses that were not only comfortable, but also affordable. I grant you that technology had a good bit to do with acquiring lenses that were compatible with my eyes, however, if Dr Irwin Azman were not a leader in the contact lens market, you would not have been able to continue recommending lenses until I was comfortable! This is what I have discovered about other eye care facilities that “claim” to specialize in contact lenses. I hear the same complaint over and over from individuals wearing contacts. Burning eyes, red eyes, uncomfortable eyes, itching eyes, blurry vision. The list goes on. I know when I refer Azman Eye Care to a friend or acquaintance, these problems will be resolved. Many times people do not take my recommendation, they refuse to believe any one can help them. I know Azman Eye Care does not just sell contact lenses, the patient must come in for follow up visits. This is a very important part of the lens compatibility. It is the only way of detecting a problem before it turns into a serious issue. Azman Eye Care includes all of this in their sale of the contact lens and the yearly maintenance; therefore, the patient is encouraged to take care of their eyes. I believe this is what is so different about Azman Eye Care and other contact lens facilities. They want to sell lenses for as cheap as possible, their is no regard for the patient and their eyes, only the sale of the product. Since follow up eye care is not included in the price, their is no incentive for the patient to return. This leads to poor eye care, all the problems I previously mentioned. You know what they say, “You get what you pay for.”

Orthokeratology:I was told I could not wear lenses by 3 other eye doctors

Precision Accelerated Orthokeratology :
I was told I could not wear contact lenses by 3 other eye doctors due to my dry eyes. You did concur that I had dry eyes, but you introduced me to Orthokeratology. You explained your Precision Accelerated technique to me. Even though I was a little skeptical about it ,because I never heard of it, I decided to trust you. I also looked into lasik and was told I could have it. After researching lasik and dry eyes I learned that if you have dry eyes you should not have lasik surgery. It has now been 2 years since going through your procedure and I am still experiencing comfortable, clear vision all waking hours. Thank you Dr. Azman for guiding and educating me and protecting my eyes from having Lasik which could of been a disaster. You have changed my life.

RV (Police Officer)
Contact Lenses
I was recently offered a position in law enforcement contingent on passing an eye exam. Having color vision deficiency  I needed to find a doctor who could help me or I would lose my dream job. I found Dr. Thomas Azman and his color correction system on the Internet and at first was a bit skeptical. Dr. Thomas Azman addressed all of my questions and concerns with the utmost patience. More importantly, he helped me pass the color blind test! Without his help I wouldn’t have been able to to get the job. Thanks Dr. Tom Azman!
