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.

Weber Top Ten
Weber’s Exclusive One-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
FRAMES: If your frame breaks under normal wearing conditions (so this doesn’t include theft, loss, or extreme abuse), we will repair or replace your frames free of charge! Only the first repair or replacement under the one-year Frame Warranty is free; subsequent replacements during the warranty period are at 50% of the retail price of the frame. Click here for more information.
LENSES: Our lens treatments are the hardest, most durable surface protection available. Any lens, however, can scratch or break. If your scratch-resistant lenses scratch or break, we will repair or replace that lens one time free of charge in the original prescription. Subsequent replacements during the warranty period are at 50% of the retail price of the lens. Click here for more information.
Weber’s 15-Day Exchange Privilege
If you decide you don’t like your new frame after all, you can exchange it for any other frame! If the replacement frame costs more than the original, you just pay the difference.
Of course, if we need to put new lenses in the new frames, though, we’ll have to charge you a lab regrinding fee.
Weber’s Huge Selection of Frame Styles
Our beautiful optical dispensary has over 1,500 frames on display– more than four times that of the average optometrist or optician’s office. We carry several brands that are exclusive in our area to Weber Vision Care, which means that you won’t run into a dozen people at the grocery store or movie theater that are wearing the same frame as you! Our opticians will help you find the perfect size, shape, color, and style for you.
Weber’s Lowest Price Guarantee
We’re quite serious about providing our patients with the best eyecare and the best value. So, if you find the same frame, priced for less than what you paid at Weber Vision Care, bring in a written quote from that optical shop within fifteen days of your purchase, and we’ll gladly apply the difference to your account.
Weber’s In-House Optical Laboratory
We have our own in-house laboratory with modern, top-of-the-line technology. That allows us the best quality control. For the same reason, we use only the highest quality lenses, coatings, tints, and other products. We offer a full line of specialty materials for high power and hard-to-fit prescriptions. Note that some insurance plans require us to use their specified laboratories; in those instances, we do not have the option to do this work in-house.
We Stand Behind Our Prescriptions
Our doctors and optical staff are always available to review your prescription needs if you have any difficulties or questions. We want you to love your eyewear! We want you to tell all your friends and relatives and co-workers that you love Weber Vision Care as much as we love tending to all our patients’ eyecare needs!
We Provide Emergency Repairs, Free Adjustments, & Free Cleanings
Our patient care doesn’t stop when you leave with your new glasses! Bring your eyewear anytime in for repairs, free adjustments, and cleaning to keep your glasses looking great and feeling comfortable! Bet you wish your car dealer offered this type of service! (And so do we!)
Weber’s Second Pair Discount
When you purchase a complete pair of prescription eyeglasses from Weber Vision Care, you’ll receive 20% off the purchase of another complete pair of prescription eyewear (for yourself, not your brother-in-law) if you make your purchase within 90 days.
We Participate in Most Insurance Plans
We accept most major insurance plans. To the extent possible, we take care of the paperwork for you; that way, you get all the benefits that your vision or medical insurance policy provides.
We Love What We Do!
