Dr. Avraham Cohen is a Glaucoma Specialist and Cataract Surgeon. He graduated with distinction from Cornell University, where he was a member of the Phi Betta Kappa honor society. He attended Albert Einstein College of Medicine and graduated as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the National Medical Honor Society. Dr. Cohen completed his ophthalmology residency at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, New York City, and served as Chief Resident and Glaucoma Fellow the following year. He was also an Assistant Professor and Assistant Director of Glaucoma Services while at Mt. Sinai.
To manage even the most advanced glaucoma cases, Dr. Cohen utilizes the latest technology and a wide range of pharmaceuticals. Many of his patients have received excellent outcomes with Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), a relatively new laser treatment for open angle glaucoma.
For his cataract patients, Dr. Cohen employs updated surgical techniques and premium intraocular lenses to insure each patient’s best vision. Dr. Cohen is an expert in “dropless cataract surgery,” an innovation which greatly minimizes the need for eye drops in the weeks after surgery. He also offers Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) for patients with glaucoma and cataracts. A tiny stent is inserted during cataract surgery to reduce intraocular pressure in adult patients with mild to moderate open angle glaucoma.
Dr. Cohen and his wife Dawn live in Cherry Hill, NJ and are the proud parents of a young daughter.
