Our Team

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Our eye doctor knows how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our Buda optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr. Erin Jacob

Optometrist

Dr. Jacob was raised in Trent, Texas, which is just west of Abilene. After graduating as valedictorian of her senior class, she left to pursue her undergraduate degree at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry, graduating magna cum laude. She earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Houston, again graduating magna cum laude.

In 2008, she began practicing as Associate Optometrist at Texas State Optical (TSO) in Bridge City, Texas and eventually opened her own Texas State Optical practice in Lockhart. She sold this practice and turned her focus to providing mobile concierge eye care to retirement and assisted living communities, servicing more than 40 facilities in the South Texas area.

Dr. Jacob performs eye exams and vision tests to prescribe and dispense corrective lenses and detect any eye defects or abnormalities. She is also a certified optometric glaucoma specialist. She is adept at the postoperative surgical management of cataracts and other ocular surgeries working collaboratively with several local ophthalmologists.

She is a member of the Texas Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association.
