PECG was founded in 1981 by Dr. F. Jane Barton. During her training at the world-renowned 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) during LASIK surgery for cataracts. Among other recognitions, Dr. Barton has served as the President of the Pennsylvania Academy of Ophthalmology. She was joined by Geoffrey J. Brent, MD to create an ophthalmology practice with superior surgeons. Over the past 30 years, she has also had John J. O’Donnell, OD, Robert F. Stegura, OD, and Kimberly Zimmerman, OD join the practice.
