Keratoconus: Corneal Transplant, RGP lenses, Hybrid lenses, to PVR PROSE Scleral lenses 20/20

This patient was diagnosed with Keratoconus in 1988. He went to the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Clinic and to many other doctors who were unsuccessful in treating him. He was prescribed RGP, Rigid Gas Permeable lenses – they were very uncomfortable and often they would pop out of his eyes. After failing with RGP lenses he was told he needs to have a corneal transplant. In 1999 he had the corneal transplant surgery. In the years to follow he was always told that the transplant was successful, but his vision had not improved. As time went on, he tried other lens options such as hybrid lenses, which again were very uncomfortable and didn’t last long. His doctor suggested that he see a scleral lens specialist – Dr. Irwin Azman. Dr. Azman prescribed him with PVR PROSE custom scleral lenses, which now provides him with 20/20 vision! After 30 years of poor vision he can finally enjoy the gift of sight.

Accidental Eye Care

I met Dr. Benjamin Azman by “accident” on October 28th, 2016. Of all things, my little 4 pound Yorkshire Terrier hit me in the eye with his little, wet nose and caused quite a nasty abrasion on my cornea. I was in Timonium on travel, I live in Northern VA. Across the street from the venue I was at I recalled seeing an Eye Care Sign on the building so I walked in. Words can not adequately describe the level of care and concern I felt from the moment I was greeted at the desk. To say that every single person I encountered went above and beyond the call would be an understatement. The accident happened on a Friday morning, I was to be in town until Sunday evening. Two of the Doctors opened the office on Sunday morning for a follow-up visit which is unheard of. I also received calls and a couple of text messages just checking if there was any pain before the Sunday follow-up appointment. As a result of this little accident, due to the very interesting diagnostic equipment they have, a more serious problem was found behind my eyes that I had no idea about. I have my eyes checked and dilated yearly by a local Optometrist so this was very concerning. I feel so blessed to have found this practice and for the genuine care they demonstrated.

Advanced Keratoconus

I have what is called advanced keratoconus which requires me to wear a special contact lens. Before I was diagnosed I wore glasses just never wanted to wear contacts because I was scared, I’m very weird about touching my eyes, I kept rescheduling my appointments and Dr. Azman and his staff kept calling for me to come in, I was just afraid of the thought of inserting contacts I didn’t think I could do it, I believed that I could get glasses instead of the contacts, didn’t happen. My vision deteriorated so quickly I had to go in, let me say The Azman team are the friendliest, most professional group of people that I’ve met in a long time, Joanne worked with me until I was comfortable with putting the contacts in and taking them out, she was patient and even called to check on me, I have two different lenses that I insert. At home I did everything Joanne said to do and I have no problems. I am so glad I made it into the office. When Dr. Benjamin Azman put my lenses in and I could see clearly for the first time in a long time I cried …Dr. Benjamin was so awesome! Thank you so much !! Azman is my eye care specialist for life!!
