We Manage a Variety of Ocular Diseases

Thanks to our advanced diagnostic technology, our doctors can see into your eyes with more precision, detail, and comfort than ever before. We can take high-resolution pictures of the inside of your eye using our Optos and Optovue iWellness optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices, and true visual field and retinal measurements with our iCare COMPASS. We’ve made these tools the focal point of our care so we can spot, track, and manage your conditions thoroughly.

Eye Conditions We Manage

For many eye diseases, like macular degeneration and glaucoma, early detection is the most important step in preventing irreversible vision loss. With our technology and years of experience, our providers can spot and diagnose the signs of a wide range of conditions and create a targeted plan to safeguard your eyes and vision.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

This disease affects your macula — the part of your eye responsible for central vision. AMD develops with age and often won’t show any symptoms until damage to your sight has already happened. Our state-of-the-art retinal imaging equipment can give us a clear look at your macula and its overall condition. If we detect the presence of AMD, we’ll set you up with the proper eyewear, supplements, and lifestyle recommendations to keep your eyes healthy and functioning their best.

Red Eye

Red Eye

A very common condition, red eye occurs when the blood vessels in your eye become inflamed, either due to infection or irritation. This causes them to take on a “bloodshot” appearance. Red eye can cause discomfort and vision issues if left untreated, but our doctors are skilled at identifying its underlying causes in our exams. Once we diagnose your condition, we’ll help you find relief through various solutions, like antibiotics, medicated eye drops, and lifestyle adjustments that can prevent it from returning.

Vision with Glaucoma


Glaucoma is a group of conditions that cause damage to your optic nerve — the part of your eye that sends visual signals to the brain. This damage is usually caused by an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP) due to a large buildup of fluid inside of your eye. You may not notice the symptoms of glaucoma until your vision is affected, so early detection of the disease is key. We’ll use our iCare tonometer to diagnose your glaucoma and monitor your IOP, and we’ll work with you to keep the condition in check with a customized management plan.

Eye with Keratoconus


Keratoconus occurs when your cornea, the front part of your eye that focuses light, thins and bulges outward. In our comprehensive eye exams, we can detect this thinning early and begin a treatment plan that’s tailored to you. Our keratoconus treatment plans usually involve fitting you for specialty scleral contact lenses. These lenses vault over your cornea completely and instead rest on your eyes’ whites, or sclera. This ensures you can see clearly, and your delicate front-of-eye is protected.

Eye with cataract


As you age, the lens in your eye can naturally begin to cloud, and this hazy lens is known as a cataract. This vision impairment will ultimately continue to progress, with the only way to correct it being cataract surgery. Not to worry, our doctors use advanced diagnostics to spot cataracts early, and help you manage changes in your vision with the right eyewear! When you’re ready for surgery, we will co-manage your care with your surgeon to ensure your recovery is seamless and post-surgery vision is outstanding!

I visited Washington Eye Doctors for my dry eyes. Dr. Rosenblatt is awesome, he is very respectful and professional. Zero pressure when you talk to him. After the treatments, I feel absolutely better. Eye dryness is painful, and someone says it's more like a disability than a disorder. I can't agree more. Before I get the treatments, I can't even sit down and type these words for like 15 mins. Now I am not 100% recovered but at least I could work and study like a normal person. I am still using prescribed medications and I am confident that this problem is treatable. If you have dry eyes, try to contact Dr. Roosenblatt is the best advice I could give.

I have been with Washington Eye Doctors for 50 years since the Katz/Kanstroom days. They guided me through bifocals as a kid, contacts as an adolescent and Lasik as an adult. 25 years after Lasik I still have near perfect vision. I just went back for night driving glasses. Always quick, efficient and thorough consistently over the decades.

A group of kind, friendly human beings. I was visiting Washington, D.C. from out of town, ran into a bind, and this practice was able to help me so that I could drive back home. I am so thankful for their help.

The absolute best choice for dry eye! I had been suffering for years, and now my eyes are drastically better after only three months of proper treatment. Dr. Abraham is excellent. He explains things very clearly and listens to concerns with compassion. I really appreciate his help and cannot recommend Washington Eye Doctors highly enough, especially for dry eye patients.

Dr Rosenblatt has been my eye doctor for many years and worked with me to get my proper correction for nearsightedness. My extra-sensitive system was previously over-corrected and his prescriptions enabled my vision to be more relaxed and stabilize. The glasses are high quality and good fit. I’m especially fond of the nearly weightless frames and lenses.
