Azman Contact Lens Specialists is Maryland’s top contact lens specialty practice. We have successfully helped many patients who had trouble wearing lenses all day long and patients who were told that they could not wear contacts at all.

Dr. Irwin Azman Review – Scleral Lenses – Post RK Surgery Testimonial

When this patient was in her 30s her RX was about -10 in both eyes. She was not able to wear contact lenses and had to wear her glasses, which she didn’t like. So she decided to have Radial Keratotomy (RK) Surgery. Her vision was good for many years, but then it went down hill. Eyeglasses and contact would not work for. Her entire life changed – it was dangerous for her to drive at night. Eventually she was fitted for custom scleral lenses and now has the best vision she has had in years!

Dr. Irwin Azman is one of the pioneers of treating the Post RK patient, as well as Post-LASIK Complications. With over 25 years of experience in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of the Post RK patient with complications.

Life changing eye care experience!

“From the moment an individual walks into the office, Azman Eye Care Specialists demonstrate that they are geared to serve. The receptionists greet patients with a smile, ask about their families, and offer something to drink. The waiting time is never long, but if it is, there are plenty of current magazines with which to entertain oneself. When one does go back, the General Vision Examstechnicians treat clients with respect and explain each step of the tests. Finally, once patients see the doctors–who are professional in every definition of the word–they are again greeted warmly and treated with respect. The entire experience is life changing, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. ”

My New Contact Lens Specialist

I have been wearing contact lens for 55 years. When I moved from out-of-state to Maryland, I needed to find a new contact lens specialist. I found Dr. Azman using a Google search. I was surprised to get a phone call asking me questions before getting an appointment. It turns out Dr. Azman specializes in problem cases. As I described my increasing discomfort and dry eyes, he said he could help.

I never had the tests he did for tear layer, the topography of cornea, etc. I discovered my contacts were not fitting properly causing an abrasion on both eyes. After two weeks of no contacts, the abrasion was healed. I was surprised when he suggested soft contacts. My previous doctor thought I couldn’t wear them after years with hard and then gas permeable lens. Switching to the soft lens was no problem. It took some adjusting of different strengths of the lens to get the correction for reading and computer work, but now I am very happy with the results.

I could not drive at night with contacts because of the extreme glare. That is gone. My eyes were very sensitive to light so I needed sunglasses all the time. That is gone.

Advanced Kerataconus

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 thkeratoconuse 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.
