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 lives in Richmond, VA and travels over 3 hours to visit our office. She had LASIK in 1999 and her vision and astigmatism were corrected. Over the past few years she has noticed the astigmatism returning with blurry vision and changes in her vision. After several visits with Dr. Azman she is now wearing customized scleral lenses and her vision has greatly improved!
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.
