Dear Dr. Azman and Staff,

I would like to thank you for treating me so well during my examination and that I felt very comfortable to know that I was in the care of such professional and personal kindness. I’ve learned so much about my eyes and how to take care of them to ensure the health of my eyes is maintained at the highest level. Before I found Dr. Azman and Azman Eyecare, I was completely devastated that my dreams were about to fall apart due to a color deficiency that disqualified me from a Navy Scholarship I’ve worked so hard for. The only test I couldn’t study for had me frantically trying to find a way to pass the Ishihara Color Plate test. Of course there were no ways to do so, until I stumbled upon a website that said it was possible to pass using innovative color filters. Immediately I contacted Dr. Azman and suddenly my dreams were restored of going to college without financial struggles and getting back on path to commissioning into the US Navy as an officer. Since receiving treatment, I have received a medical waiver and college -bound knowing that whatever medical exams I’m given, color deficiency won’t be an issue. From my experience in Baltimore to walking out the doors of the facility, I was filled with excitement and joy. Once again I would like to thank Dr. Azman and his wonderful staff and that I am on track to pursue my dream of becoming a Naval Medical Officer at the University of Southern California and the knowledge I’ve learned will help me see the world in a positive view and just like the Azman faculty, I will try my best to help those around me to the best of my ability.

Sincerely,

Laser Vision Correction, The Right Way

When I first visited Azman Eye Care about 12 years ago, I had had a very bad experience wearing contact lenses. Dr Azman immediately put me at ease, tailored his exam to my needs, asked all the right questions, and together we succeeded in fitting me with lenses and eyeglasses.

When it came time to explore laser vision correction, I took Dr Azman’s suggestion, did some research, and visited a few surgeons on my own. When I returned and told Dr Azman that I was confused by the various options that I had heard, Dr Azman did further research and came up with a few good options. We put our heads together and decided what was best for me, not necessarily what was best for you or your practice. I’ve been very happy with the results. After all, what could be better than 20/20?

I’ve already referred friends and family to you, and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work!

Specialty Contact Lens Services

Dr. Irwin Azman is one of the few contact lens specialists that has extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of the keratoconus patient. With over 30 years of experience, his team of technicians, new technologies in instrumentation, contact lens materials and designs, Dr. Azman is able to prescribe each keratoconus patient with the perfect fit.The one characteristic that sets Dr. Irwin Azman apart from other eye care practitioners is that he neither avoids nor declines the challenge of prescribing the most difficult keratoconus cases. Dr. Azman tends to have a perfectionist demeanor.

Corneal specialists agree that it is best to exhaust all non-surgical options for keratoconus before undergoing corneal transplant surgery, especially for younger patients. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists from all over Maryland and surrounding states refer their challenging keratoconus patients to Dr. Irwin Azman.

Diagnosing Keratoconus

We are now able to detect the presence of keratoconus well before subjective symptoms develop. Corneal Topography and Aberrametry measurements has become the standard of care in diagnosing and management of keratoconus. A computerized system images the shape of the cornea together with the entire optical system by taking tens of thousands of data points. The results are instantly analyzed and wave front topography maps are generated. These printouts will show Dr. Irwin Azman a map print (just like a finger print) of the patient’s location and severity of any corneal distortion and high order aberrations (HOA).

Dr. Irwin Azman maintains a practice devoted to patient care, with cutting edge technology, to the restoration of vision and comfort lost as a result of refractive eye surgery (including LASIK and Radial Keratotomy), keratoconus, corneal transplant surgery, pellucid marginal degeneration, extreme dry eye, corneal dystrophies, corneal trauma and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.

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!
