Dr. Jakobiec's clinical and research interests have centered on inflammation and tumors of the eye and surrounding tissues. As a clinician, he advanced cryotherapy for conjunctival melanomas and squamous carcinomas as well as concentrated on orbital tumors, particularly lymphomas, and was responsible for a 450 page chapter on orbital diseases in Spencer's four volume definitive textbook on Ophthalmic Pathology. Throughout his career, Dr. Jakobiec has focused much of his efforts on ophthalmic education. He has served a myriad of visiting lectureships and professorships at over 50 institutions and societies, and has received numerous awards and medals.
Dr. Jakobiec has written nearly 400 journal articles and book chapters, and edited more than 20 volumes devoted to eye tumors and eye pathology. He was the founding Co-Editor of Albert and Jakobiec?s Principles and Practice of Ophthalmology, in its third edition as of 2015, and considered the gold standard of ophthalmology reference texts.
