I had a corneal transplant early on in 2006, I believe. And because of the shape of the cornea was steep and the soft lenses or the hard lenses couldn’t fit the cornea shape, so that’s why I was told the only solution was the corneal transplant. So I had a corneal transplant in, as I said, 2007, 2006, and unfortunately, that corneal transplant in my right eye wasn’t successful. So I had to research the shape of the cornea again, but still I wasn’t able to achieve the vision that I was looking for. But eventually, with the scleral lenses now, I can see a lot better. So basically, I had a corneal transplant in my right eye, and also, later on, I had– recently, actually, I have a cross-linking and intacts on my left eye. I was told another cornea transplant from my left eye. And then, I was like, OK, just give it another try. So I went to California. Did my cross-linking and the intacts. Unfortunately, the vision wasn’t improved. So I was searching online and eventually, I found Dr. Azman Keratoconus Specialists of Maryland. He is a good doctor for scleral lenses. As I was told, this could improve the vision. And Dr. Azman he was very helpful and took the time in each patient. So we made a couple of visit to the office. I’m actually from Virginia. I came all the way from Virginia to Maryland because I was searching online he’s the only doctor I found. He could be a good help for scleral lenses.
My name is Dustin. I am a patient of Doctor Azman’s. I was diagnosed with Keratoconus about 15 years ago with no clear path to solving it. I had one doctor in Michigan that I saw, and then through my work travels, I saw– also saw a doctor in New York, and wasn’t able to find a clear solution to my problem until I moved down to Maryland and contacted Dr. Azman online, and he reached out to me. Then together, formulated a solution and now I’m comfortable with full vision and driving and everything. I used to– be a point where I was barely passing a driver’s test with my contact gear with my glasses, and now with these contact lenses, I feel comfortable driving at night and everything.
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.
A keratoconus patient who had a corneal transplant was successfully fitted with scleral lenses which gave her great vision, comfort, and prevented her from a second transplant tells her story.
The most important element of an eye exam is something called ophthalmoscopy, which is an intricate skill using a microscope, high powered lenses, and light to view the inner layer of the eye called the retina. The retina is a paper-thin layer of cells that’s responsible for processing vision. Damage to the retina can occur from disease or trauma, and often spontaneously. Luckily, early detection with ophthalmoscopy during a routine eye exam can allow a doctor to detect early signs of an impending problem, which can then be treated…..Read More
