Dr. Cohen performed the first implantable contact lens procedure (ICL), in the Tri-state area. Implantable Contact Lens serve as a LASIK alternative for patients with high myopia (extreme nearsightedness). He was featured on both Fox and ABC news for this groundbreaking achievement.
He performed the first artificial cornea procedure in the Tri-state area, restoring sight to a legally blind man who hadn’t seen out of one eye for decades which got him featured on CBS news. Watch videos of these news reports.
Dr. Cohen’s vast surgical experience includes a large number of complex cataract and LASIK surgeries that are referred to him by other ophthalmologists seeking his unique skill set with such delicate operations. This is perhaps one of the reasons that so many other eye doctors trusted their vision to his capable hands.
