Suburban Optometric Associates first opened its doors in Livonia in 1964 by founders Dr. Lawrence Beecher and Dr. Ned Grover. They were graciously accepted into the community, and added Dr. John Jacobi as an associate in 1988. The hard-work, talent and ambition of the young doctor was recognized and he became partner in 1991.
The practice move to its current location in the heart of Livonia in 2000 with ample space for the growing practice, and the founders soon after eased into retirement with Dr. Jacobi as Owner and Clinical Director of Suburban Eye Care. Our building features over 10,000 square feet, with 25% of space devoted entirely to our Vision Therapy Center located in the basement.
A long established and proud tradition of exceptional care was established in 1964 and continues on today and into the future.
