Keratoconus Technology

Keratoconus Technology for the Best Treatment

At Keratoconus Specialists of Maryland, we pride ourselves on utilizing cutting-edge technology to provide the best possible care for our patients. Our advanced equipment and innovative treatments ensure precise diagnostics and effective management of keratoconus. Here’s a look at some of the state-of-the-art technology we use in our practice:

Keratoconus Instrumentation

Corneal Wavefront Topographykeratoconus-diagnosis
This advanced technology maps the cornea’s surface, allowing for detailed analysis and customized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

Keratograph® 5M
A comprehensive tool for the diagnosis and management of keratoconus, the Keratograph® 5M provides high-resolution images and precise measurements to monitor the condition effectively.

Zeiss Visante Topographer and Anterior Segment OCT System
Designed specifically for keratoconus diagnosis and management, this system offers detailed imaging of the cornea and anterior segment, aiding in accurate diagnosis and monitoring.

Specular Microscopy
This technology allows us to examine the corneal endothelium, providing critical information about cell density and health, which is essential for managing keratoconus and planning treatments.

keratoconus-testing-in-baltimoreHuvitz HOA Aberrometer and Ovitz HOA Aberrator
These devices measure higher-order aberrations (HOAs) in the eye, which can affect vision quality. By precisely identifying and correcting these aberrations, we can significantly improve visual outcomes for our patients.

Keratoconus Contact Lenses

We offer a range of advanced lens technologies to provide optimal vision correction for keratoconus patients, including:

Synergize Hybrid Lenses – a combination of a soft lens with the center of and RGP keratoconus lens –giving the comfort of a soft lens, with the optics\vision of the RGP design.

Custom Scleral Lenses – large diameter lens that vaults the cornea and rests on the sclera. With new keratoconus contact lens materials these lenses are very comfortable and can provide superior optics to both RGP and hybrid keratoconus lenses.
Keratoconus Scleral Lenses

PVR PROSE – is a prosthetic device similar to scleral lenses, which uses fluid to replace and smooth-out the ocular surface. These keratoconus contact lenses are designed and customized utilizing Optical Coherence Tomography OCT and Wavefront Higher Order Aberrations (HOA) technology to correct glare, halos, starburst, ghosting, and other vision distortions.

EyePrint PRO – a prosthetic scleral device, which designed to match the exact shape of the cornea using a molding process.

Keratoconus Surgical Procedures

Surgical Collaborations When necessary, we collaborate with leading keratoconus surgeons to offer FDA-approved treatments such as:keratoconus-corneal-transplant

At Keratoconus Specialists of Maryland, we are committed to providing the highest level of care using the most advanced technology available. This commitment ensures our patients receive precise diagnostics, effective treatments, and the best possible outcomes.

Two words.. Life changing! I’ve seen multiple specialists in regard to my keratoconus diagnosis, none of these specialists were able to give a reasonable solution. I did a google search and Keratoconus Specialist of MD came up and making the call was the best decision I could make! I had an appointment and after a few test Dr Azman gave me a solution that my insurance would cover!!!!!!! Amazing!!! I am beyond ecstatic I will now have be able to see with clearer vision! Thank you

I was diagnosed with Keratoconus from a LASIK appointment. I was told to find a specialist to work with and I found Dr. Azman. Walking into the office, I was so concerned and worried from all the information I had googled. I worried that there was no hope for me. I walked in and was greeted with warm smiles which immediately calmed my nerves. I met with Dr. Azman who gave me immense hope, and I left with a new game plan, understanding, and team there to support me. I was told about my eye disease in November, and it is currently March using a pair of lenses that have me seeing clearer than I have ever seen in my entire life. I'm even going back in a few weeks to get a pair that will make me see EVEN BETTER. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Azman who never gives up and remains determined to get my eye sight as clear as possible. I recommend him to all who are searching for help in the Baltimore area.

As an optometrist excellent vision for me is paramount. Dr. Azman and his staff's expert examination and fitting of my scleral lenses for keratoconus provides me the excellent vision that I need to examine my patients. I have been fitted with scleral lenses by 4 optometrists over the past 10+ years. Dr. Azman is the best! His knowledge, experience and expertise can not be matched. The time and money spent by me as a patient to have my vision miraculously improved by scleral lenses is more than worth it! My personal and professional life have been blessed by Dr. Azman and his staff.

Azman Eye Care Specialists are absolutely top notch! This is hands down the happiest I have ever been with any eye care specialist. The office is extremely professional, clean, and efficient. The staff is friendly and helpful. Above all of that, this is the best treatment for my keratoconus I have ever had. Not only was it the easiest eye exam I have ever had, the resulting improvement to my vision is remarkable. I am more comfortable and have clearer vision than I can ever remember and I am 53 years-old. It's obvious upon your first visit that this practice stays educated and on the cutting edge of technology. Dr. Benjamin Azman clearly wants the best for his patients and will do what is necessary to achieve the best outcome. It's obvious that Dr. Azman and the entire office staff love what they do and take pride in treating their patients and providing them with solutions to increase their quality of life.

My 3.5 year journey to getting contacts has ended thanks to Dr. Azman. Dr. Azman and his staff are simply amazing and to be honest, that doesn’t give them the fair credit they deserve. Both he and his staff are very personable, reachable, professional, and relatable. I have to admit that at first I was a bit weary about having to drive 2 hours to Baltimore for contacts, but after my first visit my anxiety was put to ease (mind you it only took 3 and I walked away with contacts I could see in). Before my visit, I was contacted by his office so they could get my past medical records. Not only did he get them, he reviewed them. I have ‘special eyes’ and finding someone who can treat them is a miracle. I am 33 and at the age of 7 I was diagnosed with uveitis and had both lenses on my eyes removed. I’m legally blind and have very poor vision in my left eye even when corrected by machines. Dr. Azman took the time to examine my eyes and suggested the best product that would maximize vision for both. While I dismiss my left eye as a place saver, he treated it the complete opposite and gave it the care it needed. To my surprise, during the second visit, I was provided a pair of contacts that fit and were usable. I was blown away because this was only a trial pair based off our first measurements. He did his tweaking and on the third visit, I walked out with contacts that I could fully function with. I cried tears of joy. The contacts I was wearing prior to him were over 5 years old and had a chip on it and were nowhere close to the right prescription. I had been going to other eye doctors for contacts for over 3 years and had no luck. I was literally about to give up but one day I randomly googled ‘sclera lens doctors in Maryland’. He popped up and the rest is history. Thanks to him, I can see. Comfortably. Correctly. But don’t take my word for it. Check him out. If you have special eye needs or just eye needs in general, give his office a call. He has been a blessing for me and hopefully for you as well.

Hello. It has been a blessing finding Dr. Benjamin. He has given me the gift of sight with the correct contacts. I have been through so many doctors and contacts (toric, hybrid, gas permeable) and none have worked. The Schlera lens that Dr. Benjamin prescribed me have been a Godsend. I recommend Dr. Benjamin. He and the staff provide excellent customer service and make you feel at home. Joanne is awesome.

I had a very difficult case due to the fact that my corneal transplants were done in 1980 and 1990 I was losing contacts as fast as I could buy them I went to see Dr. Azman and he quickly found a solution to my problem by fitting me with scleral lenses He is well-connected with other doctors, which makes the process easy and the communication outstanding He even assisted my eye surgeon during Covid when I had a rejection and my eye. Surgeons office was closed. His attention to detail has allowed my eyesight to drastically increase I would recommend him to anyone
