Over 30 years ago this patient suffered severe trauma to his eyes and since then he has lived with poor vision. He has tried contact lenses and glasses, but they never provided him with good vision…. Until he met Dr. Azman!
“I pretty much had eye problems since, I think it started when I was probably 9 or 10. So I’ve always had to deal with glasses, contacts, what have you. Over the years, it just got worse. And come to find out, probably about six, seven years ago, I found out that I had keratoconus. Been to numerous physicians, I’d probably say eight in the last seven or eight years. Nothing like what I find here with Dr. Azman.” Keratoconus Dry Eye Contact Lens Treatment.
“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 technicians 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 wouldnât go anywhere else. ”
5 star rating in each category!!!! After having dry eyes for almost 40 years, and being recommended to use over the counter eye drops (only clear advice to stay away from Visine), I never realized it is truly an eye disorder that no physician has ever addressed……until Dr. Tom.
When I phoned to inquire about the services and inquiring about insurance coverage, Dr. Tom returned the call personally & spend quite a bit of time in conversation. I made an appointment & was given several eye tests by Dr. Tom (only one test which was ever administrated before & without even a direction to proceed), all of which clearly outlined my present eye condition. Dr. Tom then formulated a plan to treat my chronic condition over several months. I am so grateful I looked for a practice dedicated to Dry Eye Disease and found this unique one. Dr. Tom goes overboard with compassion, caring & humor (even phoning from a remote location to check on my initial treatment results). I can not say enough about the staff – they make you feel very welcome at each visit and focus solely on you when you are working with them. Highly recommend The Dry Eye Institute!
Dr. Thomas Azman and The Dry Eye Institute made a huge difference in my life. I no longer suffer from dry eye and my vision is clearer. My eyes are comfortable and no longer an issue. Dr. Azman is the kindest, most genuine Doctor I have ever met. He goes out of his way to make sure you understand everything and to make sure you are at ease. His staff is professional and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Thomas Azman!!!
Lasik and Dry Eye Management
I have been seeing Dr. Azman for quite some time, for dry eyes as well as lasik surgery follow ups. Personally I have tremendous problems with my dry eyes and occasional eye infections and Dr. Tom has always been right on with his treatment plan and resolves the issue quickly and professionally. He is one of the few doctors who follow up on you after your visits. I find this quite remarkable. I would recommend Dr. Tom and Dr. Irwin to anyone who needs any kind of vision care. Their staff is very knowledgeable, courteous and always ready to help answer any questions.
I have been under Dr. Azman’s treatment for my dry eyes. He is very attentive and thorough – always giving detailed explanations and answering all my questions in a way that I am able to fully understand. Dr. Azman also contacts me if there is a new treatment or medication that he feels would improve my condition. I will admit that sometimes there is an extensive wait in the office, but I can only assume he is giving other patients the same detailed care that he is giving me! The Azman staff is very gracious and lovely – always greeting me with a smile and genuinely asking how I am. The office itself is very clean and the communication between the different areas seems to flow smoothly. I highly recommend Dr. Azman due to his attention to detail and his expertise!

I have tried contact lenses on four different occasions, without success, before I visited Dr. Azman. Although other doctors had told me I had dry eyes, their solution was to simply prescribe a different brand of contact lens rather than to address the underlying problem. On each occasion, the end result was that the lenses bothered me so much that I just stopped wearing them. Dr. Azman’s commitment to correcting the dryness in my eyes was a refreshing and effective approach to my vision issues. For the first time, I feel that contact lenses will actually be a viable choice for me. It’s fantastic.

Dr Azman has been my eye doctor for more than 25 years. Recently he has treated my eyes for dry eyes. He is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable about treating dry eyes. I didn’t know how bad my eyes felt until he treated them. Even though I wear contacts, my vision was slightly impaired due to dry eyes. Once Dr. Azman started treatment, my eyes felt so much better and my vision changed again due to improvement of moisture in the eye. I put my trust in Dr. Azman.

As a 60+ aged patient, Dr. Irwin Azman has kept me in contacts that correct both my close up and distance vision. Before coming to him, my previous doctor of 20 plus years told me that I needed to move away from contacts back to glasses. So, I am delighted with Dr. Irwin’s solution. I am very pleased and impressed with the entire staff at the eye center. Everyone is courteous, knowledgeable and professional in their interaction with me. I have recommended friends in the past and will continue to do so.!
