What other Doctors say about Dr. Cohen

Cohen Eye Institute Team

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?
