About Premier Eye Care

“Our mission is to provide the finest eye care and services. We are committed to serving our patients and community with quality, compassion, and integrity.”


Premier Eye Care Group was founded in 1981 by Dr. F. Jane Barton. During her training at the world-renown Wills Eye Institute, Dr. Barton worked with Dr. Turgot Hamdi, one of the pioneers in intraocular lens implantation. She brought the phacoemulsification procedure for cataract surgery to Harrisburg, and was the first eye surgeon in the area to use topical anesthesia (no needle) for cataract surgery. Among other recognitions, Dr. Barton has served as the President of the Pennsylvania Academy of Ophthalmology. She was joined by Geoffrey J. Brent, MD and Thu T. Pham, MD to create an ophthalmology practice with superior surgeons. Over the past 30 years she has also had John J. O’Donnell, OD, Craig M. Match, OD, Robert F. Stegura and OD, Kimberly Zimmerman, OD, join the practice.


At Premier®, we pride ourselves in our tradition of excellence. From annual eye exams, glasses, and contacts to LASIK, cataract surgery, and diabetic eye exams, our practice of Board®-certified optometrists and ophthalmologists treat all patients individually to best meet their specific needs.
