Dr. Cohen specializes in the management and treatment of glaucoma. Many of his patients have received excellent outcomes with Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), a relatively new laser treatment for open-angle glaucoma.
Dr. Cohen also is a cataract surgeon, utilizing the latest advances in technology and intraocular lenses to insure patients' best vision. In January 2016, Dr. Cohen began offering the newest procedure for patients with glaucoma and cataracts: the iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent. The iStent is inserted during cataract surgery to reduce intraocular pressure in adult patients with mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma. Click here to learn more.
