It's miraculous. For the first time in my life I can see perfectly without glasses or contacts. Dr. Cohen did an amazing job doing my cataract surgery.

My daughter had Lasik done with Dr. Cohen a year earlier and was extremely happy with the results, therefore, when it came time for me to look into Lasik for myself there was no hesitation. After years of wearing contacts and always having issues with them I made the decision to visit Dr. Cohen and group. I had cataracts/astigmatism in both my eyes and ended up needing cataract surgery on both eyes. THE BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE. Extremely happy with my results. Great Doctors and staff.

Let me say first off that Dr. Cohen was a great choice for my surgery. I have had both eyes done within two weeks of each other. I am upset with myself for not having the surgery done earlier. I am seeing great, my second eye was only done yesterday, and am hopeful that glasses will not be necessary once everything is 100% healed. Dr. Cohen is well respected by all the doctors, nurses and staff at the surgery center. He is a very skilled and competent surgeon and I would highly recommend him.
Dr Cohen and his staff goes OUT of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease once you meet them. If you are looking for a GREAT doctor and want to feel at ease...you should choose DR Cohen. He and his great staff take very good care of you and your eyes.

I highly recommend Dr. Cohen found him to be very professional and a highly skilled surgeon. I was very happy will the results and my whole experience with the doctor and his team. I would not hesitate to make an appointment with him in the future if I had a problem.
After more than 10 yrs of wearing glasses because of poor vision & last year developing cataracts with everything turning gray & cloudy, because of Dr. Cohen, I now have 20/20. I never would have dreamed this possible. After my surgery I was amazed at what I was missing, everything is now so clear & colorful. Dr. Cohen recommended the multifocal lenses & so glad he did. I no longer need glasses. The surgery was quick & painless so was recovery. The Dr. & staff very professional &, caring.

Dr Cohen and the staff at Somerset Eye Institute and Eye Physicians Institute are very professional and after having worn contacts and glasses for 40 years or so, the corrective lens surgery changed my life as I now have 20/20 vision. The surgery was the best thing I have done and was painless as I as able to see the next day after the patch was removed.

I was Lucky & Blessed to have Dr. Cohen do my cataract surgery. You only have 2 eyes that can't be replaced, so you need a competent surgeon to do the job right with no issues. Dr. Cohen is an excellent surgeon. He was informative and is highly skilled at doing this delicate surgery. It was Fast & Painless with cataracts gone & 20/20 vision restored! I couldn't be happier! Thanks to his team of professional staff members who made the entire experience so comfortable and easy. Highly Recommended!
