My undergraduate studies were done at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, majoring in Microbiology and Immunology. My optometry training was done at the New England College of Optometry where I graduated with honors.
I have been practicing in the Baltimore-Washington, DC area since 1997.
I specialize in primary eye care and contact lens service. I am certified by the International Association of Boards of Examiners in Optometry in the diagnosis, treatment and management of ocular disease. I also provide screenings and pre and post-op care for corrective laser refractive surgery.
My staff and I are very professional and will treat you with compassion and the attention that you would expect as a patient. I am confident that you will see that we are providing our patients with the highest quality comprehensive eye care.

This was my second annual exam at Eye Rx. The office is modern, with friendly staff and an up-to-date selection of frames. I appreciate that they give your prescription at the end of the appointment, without pressure to purchase anything.

This is my third appointment with Dr. Lobaugh as well as his Optometrist partner, and every time is a good experience. Quick, thorough, and attentive. I'd recommend he and his staff to anyone.

Dr. Lobough was excellent. He really listens and resolves the issue immediately and he is not over zealous about charging for every little thing. His receptionist, Ryan, is definitely the cream of the crop and very personable. I felt at home after being forgotten and canceled without my knowledge by another doctor.

I have seen Doctor Lobaugh since 2012, when he was at his prior location. He has always been thorough, patient, and nice. I only see him once per year, but he makes sure to revisit my file to know the context of the visit. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Lobaugh is great! I've only ever seen one other Optometrist who I thought was good, but Dr. Lobaugh raised the bar. He listened to my concerns, talked to me through the exam, and explained his recommendations at the end. The staff were friendly and professional. They made the insurance stuff super easy.

Pretty pleased with my experience seeing Dr. Lobaugh. Nice guy, quick and easy eye exam. The only negative was that I felt like he was trying to upsell me into buying daily contacts rather than the two week kind that I usually get (he kept saying that I would save on contact solution, which I thought was a bit of a stretch). Luckily, the optician there was more understanding and helped me find contacts that were completely covered by my insurance. In short, good experience overall, but do some research before buying contacts from here.

Everyone I met at Eye RX was friendly, helpful, and professional. They have a small but high-tech space; you have to fill out your paperwork at a kiosk where you scan your own insurance card and ID. I had to wait a little bit in the exam room to see Dr. Lobaugh, but it was worthwhile. As a first-time patient, I had a lot of questions, and Dr. Lobaugh was very approachable and thorough. I never felt rushed or stupid, which isn't always the case with doctors. The optometrist who helped me choose my frames was also patient and good-natured, so I felt comfortable taking my time and finding the right pair of glasses. I found Eye RX online and really lucked out. I've already recommended them to a friend.

Dr. Lobaugh was very thorough - he noticed that my previous prescription was probably too high which is not very common. His staff was also very welcoming and effective. The only negative thing I can say about Dr. Lobaugh was that he was a bit rushed at the end and didn't ask me if I had any questions (I did).

The appointment itself was quick and professional. Dr. Lobaugh answered my questions thoughtfully. The staff was incredibly helpful and polite. I always hate eye appointments because at the end you have to face the sales pitch to buy contacts and glasses right now, for better prices than anywhere, just buy them now and don't think twice! I was so relieved when the office staff asked once, and only once, if I wanted to buy glasses or contacts, and when I politely declined, they moved on. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for an eye doctor.

Really wonderful experience with Dr. Lobaugh and his staff. It was only a slight wait as they finished another patient. He was very professional and the staff at the office were great when I asked for a copy of my prescription. The overall feel of the office was welcoming and I'd recommend it to friends and family.

My visit with Dr. Lobaugh was fantastic. I checked in and was seen in approximately 10 minutes. Last time I saw Dr. Teller (who is fabulous) and this was my first time seeing Dr. Lobaugh who was just as great. Everyone at this office is extremely friendly and super helpful. I will continue to use them for my vision needs and would definitely recommend their office!

Everything was perfect - from the very professional staff to the very clean office to the doctor's very patient explanations of what he was doing during the exam as well as the outcomes. He made sure to let me know if part of the exam was not covered by my insurance, which was appreciated, and not done by all doctors from personal experience. I highly recommend Dr Lobaugh.
