Azar Eye Clinic has provided quality eye care to Acadiana since 1945, when it was founded by Dr. Paul Azar Sr. When the clinic was first opened, Dr. Paul Azar Sr. specialized in eye, ears, nose and throat. The practice was later expanded with the addition of his sons, Dr. Paul Azar Jr. in 1975 and Dr. John Azar in 1981, who specialized in Ophthalmology. Azar Eye Clinic has always been on the cutting edge of eye surgery and was one of the first clinics to offer intraocular implants after cataract surgery in 1974 and was one of the first sites in Acadiana to offer refractive vision correction surgery including radial keratotomy, PRK, and LASIK.
In 2005, the practice was further expanded to add the fourth generation of Azar Ophthalmologists, Dr. Susan Azar. The practice has further expanded with the welcome additions of Dr. Fred Hall, Dr. Edward Graul, Dr. Laurie Sicard, and Dr. Patrick Keating.
