Dr. Jacob was the first to bring out the concept of Anterior segment transplantation. In this the cornea, sclera and an artifical iris, pupil and IOL are transplanted enbloc in patients with anterior staphyloma. She also devised a new technique for ptosis wherein the sling surgery can be done with primarily a one stab incision rather than three thus improving the post operative cosmetic appearance of the patient while still retaining excellent functional outcome. She has also devised two new techniques the Turnaround technique and the Double Pass Turnaround technique for successful completion of Femtosecond laser assisted Intacs implantation in eyes with false channel dissection for both symmetric and asymmetric Intacs segments.
She has authored many articles and numerous chapters in 27 textbooks by international and national publishers and is also the editor for 5 textbooks in Ophthalmology.
