Founded by Ben Zane Cohen, MD, in 1983, the practice now includes offices at three convenient locations to serve their NYC community: Upper East Side, Manhattan; Forest Hills, Queens; and the New Rochelle office serving the Bronx and Southern Westchester. Patients can also experience the convenience of an outpatient surgery center adjacent to the Manhattan location: The Retinal Ambulatory Surgery Center of New York.

Each facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that assists the experts at Retina Associates of New York in providing the most advanced treatment available for conditions such as retinal tears and detachments, diabetic retinopathy and macular edema, macular degeneration, and a host of other issues dealing with the health of the retina. The surgery center includes two operative suites, pre and postsurgical staging areas.
