What our clients say:


"Dr. was extremely thorough and informative very friendly and helpful. A pleasure to visit this doctor!"

-Courtenay F

"I feel at comfort the greeting and the assistance. Dr Jacobsen the most professional very complete with my test & information"

-Osie W

I went to Dr. Alma Jacobsen for a routine checkup. This was anything but a routine checkup. You picked up on something no one else had detected which would have caused imminent blindness in both eyes!!!!  With your optical expertise, diligence to be thorough and state-of-the-art technology you discovered blockage in both eye canals that would ultimately have lead to blindness in both eyes.  This is known as the irreversible degenerative disease GLAUCOMA  in its last stages.

In closing I want to let the people who are reading this know you literally saved my vision in both eyes.  For that, I am eternally grateful to you forever for saving my vision.

-Lynette J. Metuchen NJ
