"Eye Doctors of Washington is AMAZING! I had LASIK eye surgery 4 weeks ago and I couldn't be happier! I wish I did this sooner - it was such an easy process. Misti Howard made sure I had all the information I needed and it was super simple to understand what to do to prepare and recover. I only needed to take 4 hours of PTO, just for the day of the surgery. I was able to schedule all other appointments around work AND I went to work the day after the surgery. The day of the surgery my vision was 20/20, two weeks after the surgery my vision was 20/15. I'm so glad I did this. Dr. Kang made me feel completely comfortable during the surgery and provided all the reassurance and explanations I needed. I knew I was in great hands with Misti and Dr. Kang. I highly recommend EDOW!"

"Dr. Clinch, Brittany, Molly, and the whole team were so knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable from my initial consultation all the way through surgery day. Highly highly recommend getting Lasik and getting it done with Eye Doctors of Washington."

"I got my LASIK here a little over two weeks ago and it went great. Dr. Clinch and Maggie were very communicative and patient with me as I decided to go through the process. I have pretty severe astigmatism in one eye and they made sure to take extra precautions to ensure the best procedure possible. Surgery day was a breeze and Dr. Clinch called the night after to make sure everything was alright. I felt very prepared for my surgery and am now seeing 20/20!"

"If I could give 6 of out 5 stars I would! Dr. Clinch and his staff were thorough, efficient, on time, and extremely welcoming for every visit. As an orthodontist, it is imperative that my vision is crystal clear for seeing very small discrepancies. Following my flawless LASIK surgery during which Dr. Clinch used the office's brand new laser, I can now say that my vision is sharper than ever! If you're looking for a top notch ophthalmologist in a state of the art setting, look no further. Eye Doctors of Washington have my highest recommendation."

“I have been unable to function without some sort of vision correction since about third grade -- 30 years ago. I picked EDOW for my LASIK because of a coworker's recommendation. I had surgery a month ago to correct a -7.25 prescription. On Tuesday I went fly-fishing, and with just a pair of regular sunglasses, could reliably see a 1/8" feather floating on a stream from about 60 feet away. At my one-month check on Friday I tested 20/15 in both eyes. People call LASIK life-changing, and that's exactly what I've experienced. I am so excited to experience life free from the vision limitations I've been carrying for so long. Dr. Clinch and his team are nothing short of miracle-workers.”

“My husband needed cataract surgery, and his optometrist referred him to Dr. Clinch. From day one, he was very impressed with the level of care he received from both Dr. Clinch & the center's staff. Very strong follow-ups and provided assistance when needed. His surgeries were performed at the Palisades Eye Surgery Center - great location, near Starbucks, easy parking - and both procedures went very well. I was very appreciative that Dr. Clinch came out to speak with me both times and explained how it went. He also called my husband within a few hours after each procedure, which impressed us, usually it's the staff that does the follow-ups. Overall, we were very happy that Dr. Clinch performed his eye surgeries, as now he's almost back to 20:20 vision and just feeling much better. We highly recommend Dr. Clinch and his team!”

“Words are inadequate to describe how elated I am at the gift of sight given back to me by the extraordinary team at Eye Doctors of Washington, specifically my surgeon, Dr. Thomas Clinch.”

Annie R. Washington, D.C.

"I would never consider trusting my eyes to anyone other than Eye Doctors of Washington! I've been receiving treatment at this practice since the 1980s and it has always been EXCELLENT! Dr. Lemp and Dr. Gaasterland first treated me there - Dr. Gaasterland removed my first cataract. Then Dr. Clinch took over, and he removed my other cataract and both my husband, Mack's, cataracts. Everything went perfectly! Mack still sees Dr. Clinch for check ups and now I see Corneal Specialist, Dr. Shah. Both of them have amazing credentials. I told Dr. Shah I trust her completely and any treatment she recommends. I also want to mention Dillon, who answers the appointment phone and is always very pleasant and efficient! I cannot say enough about Eye Doctors of Washington, We have to drive 2 hours each way to reach them, and every moment is well worth it - thank you so much for many years of successful treatment!!"

"Dr. Clinch is the Best Eye doctor. Excellent skills. Very professional, knowledgeable, courteous and caring. Our family has been patients of Dr.Clinch for many years. He did find out I have retina problems and sent me immediately for surgery. He saved my eye. Recently he performed cataract surgery which went very well. My vision improved significantly. His staff and dr. explained everything to me to feel comfortable. I highly recommend dr. Clinch for any of your eye problems."

Billie S. La Plata, MD

"I have been treated here for 10 years. Dr. P. Kang is knowledgeable and gifted. He has performed 4 surgeries on me and about to do another. I trust him and highly recommend him and the entire office of professional staff."

Christy M. Falls Church, VA

“Excellent, professional experienced staff. From the first call to reception, intake, the doctors, the entire experience was impressive. I have been to three other eye doctors in the last two years, but will not go to another doctor now. What a relief to have a great eye doctor!”

Alona B. Chevy Chase, MD

"Very well run office. On time, excellent Doctor Clinch. Quintin, from patient services had provided me on several occasions with a 5 star service of highly efficient assistance with paperwork and communication- a rare find these days- Thank you! I am writing this review because sadly it’s becoming rare and hard to find a professional practices with great physicians supported by well organized office and highly motivated team. Truly recommend this practice."

Peter A. Washington, D.C.

“My experience as a cataract patient with Deepika Shah, MD and her associates at Eye Doctors of Washington has been completely satisfactory. Dr Shah has outstanding academic and professional credentials and is a highly competent eye surgeon, in my opinion. Moreover, she's a sensitive, caring practitioner who listens to her patients and works tirelessly to produce the optimal outcome for each of them. Dr Shah and her colleagues at EDOW manage a top-notch practice that would be of benefit to anyone seeking world-class vision care.”

Ja M. Washington, D.C.

"This is my second year that I use their services, amazing and cordial team, always very professional. They understand what I need and make me feel welcome and accommodated all the time. I use them last year and they were so on point for my needs that this year I don't need a new prescription at all. I recommended 100% for the quality of their services."

N/A Washington, D.C.

“Thankful for the excellent care I received from Dr Shah who is a true professional. She has a very warm compassionate bedside manner and I felt very comfortable with her care. Will be going back soon!”
