A thorough LASIK evaluation is important as well as a detailed discussion of your options prior to pursuing refractive surgery.
There is not one laser device or procedure that is best for every patient. Since each eye has its own unique characteristics, Drs. Irwin Azman and Thomas Azman will need to evaluate your entire visual system and your visual needs . From this information the Doctors will, not only let you know if you are an excellent candidate but also tailor the procedure and device for your unique eye characteristics. This comprehensive evaluation will prevent you from becoming a Lasik failure.
This patient had two LASIK surgeries and was still having trouble with her vision. She has tried RGP lenses and was not successful. Eventually she was fitted for custom scleral lenses for post-LASIK complications and her vision is now great!
Dr. Irwin Azman is one of the pioneers of treating the Post LASIK patient. With over 25 years of experience in the diagnosis, management and treatment of Post LASIK complications. Scleral Lenses – Post LASIK Complications, Keratoconus, Dry Eye, and irregular corneas.
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.
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 had originally planned on having the Lasik procedure done, but found out I wasn’t a good candidate. I never heard of Precision Accelerated Orthokeratology when I came in to Dr. Azman’s office. I was planning on getting my prescription renewed for glasses and contacts, until Dr. Azman informed me about his non-surgical procedure. WOW! What a blessing! Definitely a better alternative to surgery. It’s great not having to worry about things blowing in to my eyes, and having to take the contacts out to get the debris out, or having to be extra careful when rubbing my eyes. I could go on and on about what I no longer have to worry about, but the biggest plus for me is being able to go to the pool and beach, and not worry about keeping my eyes closed under water. I recommend Precision Accelerated Orthokeratology to anyone who wants the freedom. I can’t believe one day I was wearing contacts, and the following morning didn’t have to wear any! Thanks to Dr. Azman!
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!
The primary reason that I would recommend someone to Azman Eye Care is because I believe that both Dr. Thomas Azman and Dr. Irwin Azman always have the patient‘s best interest at heart. Although they are often busy with their daily schedules, they always take the time to fully explain their diagnosis together with the corresponding options that are available.
In my particular case, rather than rush into LASIK laser surgery, Dr Azman was willing to wait until I was completely ready and had spent several months experimenting with contact lenses to determine my optimum binocular vision. When I was ready (late ‘90s), Dr Azman suggested that I have the surgery in Canada because the technology there was not yet available in the U.S. And, Dr. Tom personally escorted me on the trip to provide both pre and post-operative care. Now, that’s what I call customer service!
In another case, a friend of mine had received consultation from another laser surgery provider and was ready to have surgery. Because she had a history of vision difficulties, I suggested that she visit Dr Tom Azman at Azman Eye Care to receive a second opinion prior to having surgery. As a result, she learned that she had dry eye syndrome, and was advised not to proceed with the surgery. Today, she is grateful that she reconsidered her original decision.
I think the best compliment that I can give to both Dr. Tom Azman and Dr. Irwin Azman is that they are men of integrity; and as a patient, you can feel confident trusting them with the care of your eyes.
