What other Doctors Say about Dr. Cohen

Choosing the Right Surgeon

For the last 20 years, Dr. Cohen has helped tens of thousands of patients achieve their best vision. A fellowship-trained cornea specialist like Dr. Cohen is most suitable for performing this procedure safely and accurately. And while some ophthalmologists may claim that they are cornea specialists, they are not fellowship-trained and it is important that you do your research and choose a qualified and experienced professional.


Which Option is Best for Me?

Considering that there are many available options for vision correction, your cornea specialist should always recommend the option that is best for you even if that is not LASIK. Dr. Cohen’s comprehensive screening exam leads to answering the following questions:


What is the procedure that will give me the best vision in the safest manner?


Am I a good candidate for LASIK?


What type of LASIK is best for me?


What can I expect after LASIK?

Be confident about your choice

It is natural to be somewhat apprehensive about an elective procedure that involves your most important and sensitive structures – your eyes. That is why we will take you through a thorough screening exam and will lay out realistic expectations for you.

Rather than letting fear and worry prevent you from experiencing a lifetime of better and more comfortable vision, our staff and doctors will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision that allows you to go into the surgery as confidently as possible

Should you not be a perfect LASIK candidate, then we will explore other options. These may include LASIK alternatives or not having surgery at all.

Contoura® LASIK


Each of us have imperfections in our eyes that contribute to the degradation of the image quality that our eyes can see. That is believed to be the main reason that most eyes are limited to 20/20 vision.

Contoura® is a type of topography-guided LASIK that is aimed at visual results that could be better than 20/20.

Prior to the LASIK procedure, the Contoura Topolyzer device first obtains a fingerprint-like image of the cornea. It then maps irregularities present on the cornea to each specific fine point on the cornea.

This is different to traditional LASIK, which treats the eye based on a prescription measurement alone. This point-to-point map data along with the patient’s prescription produces visual results that are significantly more accurate than the prescription data alone. In fact, topography-guided treatments are often used to improve vision in patients that have visual limitations due to problems like corneal scarring, irregular astigmatism, and other eye issues where solutions like glasses are ineffective.

Multicenter clinical trials show that other than just the visual acuity, Contoura® improved the quality of vision in patients. This means that not only the sharpness improved but there were fewer complaints of visual symptoms compared with glasses or contacts. In this study, 64.8% of patients achieved visions of 20/16 or 20/12.5 (the lesser the denominator the better the vision. For example, 20/12.5 is 60% sharper than 20/20).

Managing the Risks


Your eyesight is invaluable. It enriches your life in innumerable ways and gives you freedoms that you don’t want to miss out on. And because eyesight is such a precious possession, private equities and other corporate entities have started to take notice of LASIK. Not necessarily with the health of the patient in mind but instead with a keen intent of maximising profit.

In the New York and New Jersey area alone, many of these corporations have purchased or set up practices with the intent of maximising profit through reducing costs and winning market share. But not while being led by ethical patient care principles but rather by false efficiency and cutting costs and corners such as:

We don’t use:

  • Inferior types of LASER machines
  • Less-qualified surgeons
  • A production line philosophy


We feel that what makes patients most comfortable happens after they come to our office and meet our staff and doctors as well as Dr. Cohen. We take pride to say that our office staff and ambiance has a calming effect on even the most apprehensive patient.
