As a service to our community, we continue to see only patients with urgent eye care needs because if we can keep you out of the Primary Care Physician’s office – where sick people are – and out of the Emergency Room – where really sick people are, then we can help keep more families safe.
Therefore, our office will ONLY care for patients with eye emergencies and critical needs, as qualified by our technician and doctor. However, we are able to assist you with several non-urgent needs – please continue reading for full details below.
In the event of an eye emergency, call our office immediately – (734) 525-8170.
You will be connected to Dr. Jacobi. If you reach his voicemail, he requests that you please leave your full name, phone number and a brief reason for your call. He will respond as soon as possible!
For non-urgent needs, please leave a message on our voicemail and your call will be returned within two business days. We appreciate your patience!
We will get through this together! Our hopes and prayers continue to be with you! For more information, click here: https://conta.cc/2xV4JNZ

What Makes Suburban Eye Care, P.C. Unique?
Our low vision optometrist, Dr. Jacobi, works with patients from all over the state of Michigan to help them use their remaining vision. Dr. Jacobi works with each patient to assess both their remaining vision as well as their visual needs, forming a custom solution using the most advanced optics and technology available for low vision.
If your loved one is suffering from low vision as a result of macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, a stroke, or any other condition Dr. Jacobi can help.
According to the American Optometric Association, 25% of all children have a vision problem significant enough to affect their performance in school. Developmental optometry helps children, adults, athletes, and people with neurological issues to improve visual skills that affect our daily lives. Reading alone requires 11 visual activities, which can be taught and fine-tuned with therapy.
Our Vision Therapy doctor, Dr. John Jacobi is a Fellow of The College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD).
High myopia or nearsightedness is a leading cause of blindness, and the rates are growing at epidemic proportions, with an estimated half of the world's population having myopia by 2050. Eye doctors worldwide are warning about the dangers of medium and high myopia, calling myopia control a medical necessity. As a child's myopia progresses yearly, not only does the parent need to get a new prescription, but they also are a higher risk for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration when they are older.
Our optometrists provide comprehensive myopia control offering:
- Ortho k nighttime contact lenses that gently reshape the eye at night leaving them with great vision during the day without needing to wear contacts or glasses.
- Soft Multifocal Contact Lenses are worn during the day and they slow down progression by defocusing peripheral vision.
- Atropine Therapy is the ideal situation for younger children or in conjunction with multifocal lenses.
Scleral lenses are a revolution in contact lens design. The custom lens is created in a dome shape, which offers many important advantages.
- Wider design, sits on the less sensitive sclera of the eye, improving comfort
- Less movement, increasing both comfort and vision
- The dome leaves a reservoir for special drops, leaving your eyes moist and comfortable all day long.
- The dome provides an alternative corneal surface, drastically improving vision for people with corneal scarring, keratoconus, and high astigmatism.
Our eye doctors have extensive experience fitting even the most complex cases of contact lenses. From Gas permeable, Hybrid, Scleral, Ortho K lenses, we fit it all. Our office is equipped with the latest technology to allow for increased accuracy and customization.
If you have had difficulties wearing contacts, or have been told that you are not a candidate for contact lenses, schedule an appointment today.
Dry Eye is a list of symptoms such as dryness, tearing, painful eyes and crusty or gritty eyes. These symptoms are caused by many different factors, such as age, gender, medication, weather, environmental conditions, genetics, computer use, and much more.
During the dry eye evaluation, our optometrist will utilize the latest technology to assess and treat the root cause of your discomfort. Patients that actively manage their dry eye's report a better quality of life, and wished they had taken steps earlier.
I have gone to many chain optometry offices in the past, and I have never received the care and services provided to me by Suburban Eye Care. I have astigmatism, and have had problems with contacts in the past. Dr. Arnold took the time to ensure my contacts fit me properly. I am very happy with my new prescription and contacts.
My entire family has been going to Suburban Eye Care for over 11 years and we absolutely love the level of care and feeling of “family” that we get from all of the office staff. From annual eye checkups to emergencies to visual therapy…we have done it all with them and are so grateful for their excellent care and expertise! Highly recommend this practice at every level!
I have been going to Suburban Eye Care for several years, and I must say my experience has been nothing short of wonderful. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. They have been able to answer all my questions regarding not only my eye care, but my insurance coverage as well. I never have to worry when I go to Suburban as I know I am always in good hands.
