Ways Dr. Jacobi can help you with your Low Vision

If you or a loved one are now having problems seeing and doing the things you have enjoyed, Dr. Jacobi can help. If you have been told by your eye doctor that a change in your eyeglass prescription will not help you see any better, call Dr. Jacobi who is trained to design special glasses that can make a difference.

Are you tired of hearing “NOTHING MORE CAN BE DONE”? Are you frustrated at having to use hand magnifiers to read?

Whether you have Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Inoperable Cataracts, Glaucoma or any other condition causing vision loss, call 1(877) 677-2020 for an interview. We will offer an appointment only if we believe we can help.*

Nutritional Counseling

There have been a remarkable number of clinical studies over the past decade concerning nutritional supplements that nourish the macula. Age Related Eye Disease Studies 1 & 2 (AREDS) and others have demonstrated the benefits of certain vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants on macular degeneration.

We prescribe based on each patient’s needs and the doctor will discuss with you what is the best formulation for you.

  • Eye Promise AREDS 2 Plus

Illumination Counseling
