Ophthalmology Surgery Center started as a freestanding surgery center with F. Jane Barton, M.D. as the Medical Director. Our center is located on the second floor of the same building as the Premier Eye Care Group Shipoke location in Harrisburg, PA. Construction for the surgery center started in November 1993 and was completed along with the required occupancy and licensure requirements.
Ophthalmology Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc.

Are You a Good Candidate for Lasik Surgery?
Patients with myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism are all good candidates for Lasik. This is a bladeless method that is painless and requires minimal recovery time. Most importantly, it’s highly precise, safe, and effective. Eye health and overall health are important factors when considering laser eye surgery. Take one step closer to perfect vision. During your initial consultation, we perform several exams to determine if you and your eyes are a good fit for Lasik treatment. Schedule an appointment today to find out more.
Treating Glaucoma with Lasers
Nearly three million people in the United States have glaucoma. It is a disease that is caused by pressure in the eye, leading to optic nerve damage. Many times, the loss of vision is gradual. So, many people who have it do not realize it. That’s why it is so important to be tested for glaucoma each year.
Fortunately, glaucoma can be treated. We provide two types of laser glaucoma surgery at our center, and one traditional surgery (trabeculectomy). All surgeries aim to lower the pressure from the eye, preventing further damage to the optic nerve. If you have glaucoma, find out if you are a good candidate for surgery by calling our office.
