About Dr. Cohen

Dr. Cohens Bio

Dr. Cohen is a refractive surgery subspecialist and has performed thousands of surgeries for the Atlanta community. Dr. Cohen strives to obtain the highest quality vision for his patients without relying on glasses as a final enhancement of visual outcome. His desire to inspire hope and improve the quality of his patients’ lives has led him to attain the highest level of skill in eye surgery. Primarily, Dr. Cohen routinely performs cataract, corneal, lens implantation, and LASIK surgeries.

“I do what I can to improve upon those techniques. No marginal improvement is insignificant if it results in better visual quality.”

For some, a career choice might appear to be an easy decision when a family business is there to be passed down through the generations. Dr. Cohen planned to work for the family business, but at the age of 16, a dramatic experience changed his vision for his future. In a cold, matter-of-fact manner, a doctor explained to the family that Dr. Cohen’s father had only a few months to live. Not accepting that prognosis, a second doctor was found – one who gave the family hope. It was that doctor who inspired Dr. Cohen, already a student of the sciences with a great love for biology, to attend medical school.

“I knew I wanted to be someone who could inspire hope in others,” Dr. Cohen recalls, “and to help people in a way that only a physician could. That experience with my father, who is doing quite well, by the way, taught me that the practice of medicine is so much more than knowledge and skill; being compassionate about people is important, too.”

Dr. Cohen believes his broad view of ophthalmology makes him uniquely qualified as a surgeon. Not only does he bring those skills to surgery, he can serve his patients for multiple needs during their lifetime.

“I feel blessed,” Dr. Cohen says, “because I love my work. I hope to see patients until the day I can’t operate anymore. Ophthalmology truly is my passion.”

Dr. Cohen’s family values have a direct effect on his practice of medicine.

“Before I agree to perform any surgery on one of my patients, I first ask myself if I would do the same thing for my mother,” he says.

"I have wanted to do Lasik for the last 15 years but just never was pushed to the point that it became a priority. I wore glasses and could not wear contacts because they burnt my eyes. Left was a +1.5, my right eye was a +2.50. During Covid I got sick and tired of my classes steaming up and it pushed me to the point to call Dr Cohen. It was one of the best phone calls I have made in my life. The experience was incredible, my vision is perfect, and I can read every single fine line on the side of a Coke can. Dr Cohen was amazing, his demeanor, humor, and professionalism is what drives me to write this review. I highly recommend anyone who is thinking about it, make that call! Best thing I ever did in my life and I constantly brag how great I can see now!"
