The Doctors

Our Mission

Our goal is to provide you with the sharpest vision possible while limiting risks to the absolute minimum. This goal cannot be accomplished by offering the same procedure to everyone. Most people know about LASIK and cataract surgery. But few know the benefits of Refractive Lens Exchange, EVO ICL, Topography-guided LASIK, SMILE, and other procedures for vision correction or restoration. For example, you might be interested in LASIK but did you know that LASIK cannot restore reading vision?

Dr. Ilan Cohen Has Performed Over 80,000 Vision Correction Procedures.

Dr. Cohen is a fellowship-trained cornea specialist and has devoted his career to fine-tuning and perfecting surgical techniques that can change your vision and your life. This is perhaps the reason that more than 1,000 physicians have chosen him for the correction of their own vision.

Patients Testimonials


LASIK Patient

"I am looking forward to not wearing glasses or contacts anymore and go swimming. the procedure was so easy; piece of cake. I could see the clock without squinting. Dr. Cohen was very informative and made the whole experience pleasant. He walked me through everything. I am the biggest chicken, if I could do it, anyone can do it."


LASIK Patient

"Since I was four years old, I had been wearing thick glasses because of my high astigmatism. My wish had always been to see clearly without having to wear my glasses. The surgery has changed my life immensely. I chose Dr. Cohen for my LASIK because of his level of professionalism and his educational background. The surgery was easy, painless, quick and the minute he finished I was able to see perfectly without my glasses."

Dr. Lipchak

Multifocal Implant

"I am an optometrist and chose Dr. Cohen for my cataract surgery with a multifocal lens implant because over the last 20 years of knowing him and referring many of my patients to him, he never made a mistake. I didn't feel a thing during the surgery. I couldn't be happier with my vision. I am happy with my choice of lens and excited that I never have to have anything done again!"


LASIK Patient

"Dr. Cohen came extremely recommended to me. I saw the results of other people that I know and really wanted to get a surgery too. I actually wanted to get it done a few times before, but he said, I am not ready yet, because I was abusing my contacts. I had to stop wearing them for a while. My vision a day after was 20/20. Thank you so much Dr. Cohen! You are a life saver."


PRK Patient

"I work in Manhattan. I am an operating engineer. When I was 14 years old I needed a cornea transplant on my right eye. I really couldn't see well even after the surgery. I recently went to Dr. Cohen and he did a procedure on my right eye. It drastically improved my vision. I can actually street signs and news paper and television."
