Welcome to Ophthalmology at MedStar Georgetown

"Caring, experienced, and personalized." This is how Dr. Jay M. Lustbader, chairman of the department of Ophthalmology, Center for Sight at MedStar Georgetown, describes his team's care. Discover our ophthalmology expertise and you will find that these defining qualities are easy to see.


Expert clinicians 

With years of experience to inform thir care, MedStar Georgetown ophthalmologists offer expertise on a wide variety of conditions and treatment options. Our staff have helped thousands of patients improve their eye health through medication, corrective lenses, and ocular surgeries. We are proud of our seasoned staff and excellent clinical outcomes.

Patient centered care 

MedStar Georgetown's department of Ophthalmology offers a patient-centered approach. Your clinical team will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and formulate a treatment plan that works for your specific needs. In addition to working directly with patients, our staff works closely with each other — ensuring that you receive seamless, continuous care. This collaborative approach extends even beyond the department of Ophthalmology. Eye problems sometimes stem from health factors that may surprise you, including diabetes and cancer radiation. Thanks to the wide range of clinical offerings at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, our team can refer to other departments when needed.

Cutting-edge approach

MedStar Georgetown's department of Ophthalmology is at the forefront of medical innovation. We offer the latest in minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as corneal cross-linking. Our clinicians can also prescribe specialty contact lenses for patients with astigmatism, presbyopia, or keratoconus — a service that is unavailable at many other ophthalmology practices.
