For Dr. Jason Bart, Optometry isn’t just a career, it’s a family legacy. His father, Dr. Arnold Bart, founded Ultra Vision Optical in 1974 when Jason was just five months old. Growing up around the office, Jason was inspired to follow in his father’s footsteps, even attending his father’s alma mater, Pennsylvania College of Optometry, before joining his dad on staff in 2000. Today, he stands at the helm of the established business, bringing modern updates that include computer vision analysis, LASIK consultations, and the latest monocle styles.
A specialist in multi-focal fits, Dr. Bart performs all eye exams and contact fittings in-house, checking overall eye health while testing for diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. He then lets clients loose in the showroom, offering guidance as they choose from a selection of 1,500 frames that includes styles from top brands such as Michael Kors, Ray Ban, and Gucci. The shop also stocks a range of contacts to fit clients' needs, as well as a full line of eyeglasses accessories such as chains, cleaning products, and teeny, tiny bow ties.
