Our Story

Did you know that today's Weber Vision Care practice can trace its roots to the 1890s?  That's when E.L. Egolf began practicing in Harrisburg at 807 North Third Street.  Egolf began selling ready-made eyeglasses that he "positively guaranteed would fit any nose, whether large or small"!   
In 1905, Dr. Egolf moved his office to 210 North Third Street, and ventured into "the manufacturing of fine lenses for the wholesale trade throughout this and foreign countries."  Right before the First World War, he was practicing optometry again, this time at 302 Market Street.
In 1938, Dr. Martin Weber, who had been practicing as an optometrist for a few years in Harrisburg, joined Dr. Egolf's practice.  The Harrisburg Telegraph reported that as of Dr. Weber's joining him, Dr. Egolf had fit 60,000 eyeglasses in his 45 years of practice in Harrisburg! Drs. Weber and Egolf practiced at 213 Market Street in Harrisburg.
Dr. Frank Weber followed in his father's footsteps, graduating from optometry school and beginning practice in Harrisburg.   In the 1970s the Webers constucted a new building near the intersection of Colonial Road and Elmerton Avenue, just a stone's throw from the Colonial Park Mall.  The new facility boasted the latest in exam room equipment, a modern optical dispensary, and a large lab that generated and cut both glass and plastic lenses. 
In 1997, Drs. Williams and Bloom purchased Dr. Webers' practices. Rather than implement wholesale changes, they strived to build on the practices' amazing reputation in Central Pennsylvania; that's why they decided that the practice should remain "Weber."   Drs. Williams and Bloom renovated the Elmerton Avenue premises to include a new optical dispensary and more exam rooms.
In 2012, Weber Vision Care moved to a bright and cheerful new premises at 4392 Sturbridge Drive in Susquehanna Township, just a few miles away from the Elmerton Avenue location.  Drs. Bloom and Williams built out the premises to their specifications, with the latest exam and testing equipment and a beautiful,spacious optical dispensary filled with natural light. Today, we still offer the old fashioned service befitting a local business that can trace its roots back to the 1890s, but in modern new surroundings.  We think the Drs. Weber and Dr. Egolf would approve...

Just got an eye exam at Weber Vision Care’s new offices– wow! It’s like getting your vision checked at a relaxing spa. And the new “electronic eyecharts” are awesome!

My new Lindberg frames are amazing.  I ran them over with my vehicle and needed only to replace lenses.  I told Dr. Bloom I was hard on my glasses, but didn’t ever think that would happen…

The contact lens staff are patient and friendly, helping my teenaged daughter learn how to properly handle her new contacts.  Definitely recommend Weber!

I have been a long time customer with Weber Vision care since the 1950s when they were located in downtown Harrisburg on Walnut Street; I believe close to 57 years now!  So I have come through the ranks with Weber Vision Care and I can honestly say I have had excellent service over the years! At my last appointment the entire staff was so kind and courteous to me! Iam so thankful from the doctors,to the techs, to the lady fitting my frames I have nothing but kind words to say about them!  Keep up the excellent service and may God richly bless your practice!

  • review rating 5  I was a bit skeptical when I first saw how many 5 star reviews Weber Vision Care had on Google. After two visits, I now understand why. They offer exceptional service! I had an appointment with Dr. Williams for an eye exam for contact lenses and glasses. She and the other staff members I worked with really took the time to understand the issues I was facing with my current contacts and thoroughly tested my vision with a variety of tests (many of which I've never seen before). They explained everything in great detail and answered all of my questions. Dr. Williams helped me find a new brand of contacts that are more comfortable and have greatly improved the sharpness (which can be a challenge since I wear toric lenses). Here are some things that set Weber Vision Care apart from other places I've been: - Their website is informative and put together well. It gave me a chance to learn more about Weber Vision Care and meet the staff. - The appointment system on their website is convenient, easy to use, and the appointment reminders via text message and email were helpful. - The waiting area is spacious and not crowded. - All of the staff members are friendly and really care about what they are doing. - They use a variety of unique tests during the eye exam to check your vision and ensure your eyes are healthy. - Dr. Williams took the time to ensure my prescription was correct and my contacts fit correctly. She really went the extra mile to ensure I was happy. As long as Dr. Williams continues to work here, I will surely come back to Weber Vision Care for all of my eye care needs. If you're looking for great eye care, you won't be disappointed if you choose to come here.
