Dr. Rachel Cohn

Optometrist, Wink Eyecare Boutique

1095 Seven Locks Road


What made you decide to get into your line of work?

I’ve had poor eyesight since childhood. Optometry always interested me, so I followed that course of study. I'm also interested in fashion, and glasses have become super fun and stylish. So I combined my medical skills and fashion sense and opened Wink—my own optometry practice with a built in glasses boutique. 


How do you employ new technology to help your patients?

Several new technologies have made a great impact in my work and patient care. The Optomap and OCT allows me to look at the retina without using dilating drops. The other, i.Scription, maps the eye and that information helps me write a perfect prescription, correcting many secondary sight problems such as difficulty with night vision.
