Words seem inadequate to express my gratitude for your very successful surgeries on my eyelids. You, indeed, did open my eye after removing that growth. I thank you sincerely and pray God's richest blessings on you and yours.
Words seem inadequate
"After changing my eye glass prescription two years in a row, my doctor determined that I had either droopy eyelids or an issue with my eyebrows. After meeting Dr. Cowen my mind was put to rest knowing that this repair could make a difference in my vision. Dr. Cowen explained in detail the pros and cons to both procedures and then I made the choice of letting Dr. Cowen do my repair. Recovery was exactly the way he said it would be. I am thrilled with my results and can tell that this has given me exactly what I needed. Dr. Cowen and his staff are amazing to say the least. Not only has my vision been restored, I feel like the before and after pictures speak for themselves and I feel like I look a few years younger. Thank you again for giving me an opportunity to thank you Dr. Cowen and your staff."
It wasn't my glasses!
Before Dr. Cowen performed the procedure, I was having problems when I drove because my poor peripheral vision caused me to midjudge turning and I would hit curbs. Dr. Cowen and his staff calmed my fear of having surgery and my vision problem was completely resolved.
Dr. Cowen is a very thoughtful and very caring physician. I was very nervous and frightened before the procedure and he made me very easy in calming my nerves. I feel I look 15 years younger and it has improved my vision.
Nervous & Frightened
I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. My eyelids were impairing my vision. I'm glad I did it. People comment that I look 10 years younger!
Dr. Cowen did an amazing job and has a great bedside manner!
Ptosis-never knew what that was. Droopy-saggy eyelids that affected my vision. Dr. Cowen fixed my problem. Now, my vision has improved and I look (according to my husband) 10 years younger. Dr. Cowen has the best bedside manners, a professional and sincerely caring person.
Ptosis...never knew what it was!
Very pleased with the extensive reconstruction after MOHS surgery for melanoma. Dr. Cowen and staff are very kind, personable and efficient. Highly recommend them.
I feel Dr. Cowen did an excellent job with my surgery. Before surgery my vision was deteriorating. Now my vision is excellent, my eyes are wide-opened. Family and friends are impressed with the results. I would recommend Dr. Cowen to anyone.
I had a great experience with Dr. Cowen. He was very professional and did a great job. What impressed me the most was the fact that Dr. Cowen continually texted me following the surgery.
Makes me feel so much better about myself. Everyone says I look younger and the main thing my eyelids don't feel heavy now.
Better About Myself
I am extremely pleased with all of the work you did on my eye. I have never had a doctor as caring as you, and I am grateful. I am confident Dr. John Buker will be happy with your skillful closing as well. Let me assure you, I will continue to let others know how great you are as a doctor and as a person. If you're ever in my neck of the woods, stop in for a visit!

Scarlett has had a remarkable result. While she once was self conscious of her "winky" eye, she now feels beautiful. Her prescription decreased and she no longer wears glasses because of the lid repair. - Dr. Angela Scifres
Congenital Ptosis Repair
"My husband said it was nice to meet you before my surgery; it made him feel better knowing somebody as nice as you was doing the surgery."
Today was the 2nd time this week someone I was speaking with stopped talking and said “did you do something to your hair? I knew where the conversation was going and simply said “no” they looked a little longer and asked “did you have your teeth whitened” and I chuckled and said “no” and both looked and said well something is different, you look great, so rested. BOTH the exact same thing except vice versa on the hair and teeth comment but both said you look so rested. The girl who told me that today was sitting behind a desk and after she said you look so rested, I said while leaning my face towards her “look again” and she jumped up out of her chair and said “what did you do, did you get work done?!!! You look fabulous! I then told her the whole story and boy has my office been buzzing about it. I am not the best writer at all but wanted to tell you all the stories of the week. So encouraging, Just like you all said, rested is the look and I love it. So natural people can’t put their finger on it, absolutely perfect. I am so happy about it. Thanks ladies and see you soon!
Debra Fox, Age 48
I wish to express my gratitude to you for the excellent skill with which you removed a basal cell from my lower eyelid on February 6th. It is unnoticeable that I had anything done.
Thyroid disease has devastating effects on the body and in my case, the eyes. The orbital decompression surgery and eyelid surgery not only changed my appearance but gave me back my life. I am so thankful I found Dr. Cowen. He helped me through a hopeless situation.
Christy Hensley, Age 42
Dr. Cowen was so wonderful to work with. I got the personal attention that I wanted and was treated like family. The staff went out of their way for me and even followed up about my visit after a routine visit. I wish I would have seen Dr. Cowen years ago. I couldn’t be more happy with my results.
Angela Davis, Age 42
I can see better and I look better! Thanks Dr. Cowen!
Kayla Podges, Age 13

I used Boiron Homeopathic Arnicare medicine to reduce bruising and swelling before eyelid surgery- I had much less bruising & swelling then I was expecting! I am so glad I used Boiron.”
