“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 wouldn’t go anywhere else. ”
This patient has advanced Keratoconus and was diagnosed over 30 years ago. She has been to many doctors, including other keratoconus specialists and was never successfull. She has tried many types of lenses including RGP lenses. She traveled from over-seas to our office and has never been happier with her vision.
Dr. Azman works with each patient indivully to achieve sucessfull results
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 the 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.

This patient lives in Richmond, VA and travels over 3 hours to visit our office. She had LASIK in 1999 and her vision and astigmatism were corrected. Over the past few years she has noticed the astigmatism returning with blurry vision and changes in her vision. After several visits with Dr. Azman she is now wearing customized scleral lenses and her vision has greatly improved!
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.
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!
