Dr. Jesús Barrios
NJ Doctor of Optometry, OA6242
Dr. Barrios has lived most of his life in NJ and is happy to serve all of its communities in eye health and vision care needs.
He graduated The Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 2007. As part of a scholarship agreement, he immediately served the US Air Force and cared for active duty troops, retired veterans and their families. He had a wonderful military experience before returning to civilian life. He will always remain humbled by the sacrifices made by our troops in order to preserve our American way of life.
After a couple of years as an “exam only” provider, leasing exam space within a large commercial retailer, Dr. Barrios decided he wanted to have more control over the quality of eyewear offered to his patients. To do that, he believed he would have to open his own optical business.
Early 2014, the opportunity arose for Dr. Barrios to fulfill this desire. Barrios Vision has since opened its doors to serve Green Brook Township and all surrounding communities in Somerset County and beyond. Our optical shop features selections for everyone in the household. As a therapeutic optometrist certified to prescribe oral medications, Dr. Barrios is the primary eye care source for the whole family. He also participates in the InfantSEE program and, therefore, accepts patients as young as 6 months of age.
Every year he continues to try to improve upon his services based on his experience of what his patient population needs. He continues to bring in new technology to accomplish this goal. Visual skills training is his greatest passion because there is so much more to vision than seeing ’20/20.’ Vision therapy can help make learning easier for many struggling children (and adults). It can also give an edge in sports for our athletes.
New in 2018: he now offers weight loss coaching to qualified individuals that have not been able to reach their goals by other methods.
