Dr. Lobaugh is a brilliant doctor. He and his staff really do care about the patient, and they make sure you're very comfortable. I ansolutely hate going to the eye doctor, but their office make it somewhat enjoyable. I don't trust anyone else with my eyes other than Dr. Lobaugh!

The receptionist, tech, and optometrist staff were all awesome and very welcoming. The technology here is cool, everything is digital. The doctor himself was fine but he seemed rushed and didn’t go over everything with me in detail.

As someone getting my first pair of glasses, I was extremely at ease and comfortable in my eye exam with Dr. Lobaugh, and relieved to find an eye doctor who was so profesisonal. I went to Dr. Lobaugh for a second opinion after a rushed eye exam at another provider in DC led to a prescription that did not seem correct. Dr. Lobaugh took ample time to explain everything to me, conduct a comprehensive exam, answer all my questions, and give me a corrected prescription that is MUCH better. I am grateful for his careful attention and nice bedside manner, and will definitely recommend him to friends.

I came in because I was experiencing "floaters" and "flashes" in my left eye. Dr. Lobaugh examined me and quickly determined that I needed to have laser surgery to repair a torn retina. His team of assistants quickly made the arrangements with the nearby Retina Group of Washington, took care of the pre-notification to my insurance company, and sent me on my way. The RGW was able to squeeze me in and within two hours the surgery was completed.

I love Dr. Lobaugh. I've been going to him for a couple of years now and can't think of going anywhere else. However, his front desk associate, Rynne, is magnificent! From the beginning to the end of my visit, she was so helpful, pleasant, and professional. Rynne is the kind of person you want your patients to see first. EyeRx did a great thing when they hired her.

Dr. Lobaugh was wonderful! He was very friendly and informative. He explained everything he did very carefully and took the time to explain my test results and why my old prescription lenses had been bothering me, something that I don't think most doctors take the time to do anymore. His staff was also very attentive and asked a lot of questions and even took the time to resolve a little insurance snafu. I will definitely continue to see Dr. Lobaugh and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attentive, friendly eye doctor!

Dr. Lobaugh was the first OD I visited when I moved to the DC area. At my first appointment (2017), he was able to identify an issue that my previous doctors had continually missed. His careful examination prevented further damage to my vision and I was able to have the problem corrected quickly. His staff is friendly and the office space modern and clean. I would highly recommend Dr. Lobaugh.

I had an appointment later in the day and the office was able to squeeze me in a bit earlier, which I appreciated. It took awhile with the machines and the person operating them to take the eye picture which was a bit time consuming but it happens. The computers locked out one of the opticians which further delayed my appointment but overall they were really great and appreciated their flexibility.

Great doctor, straight and to the point. Works with you on contact pricing. I was able to get a cheaper brand of contacts and try them out to see if they worked.
