Fabulous surgeon with great bedside manner

I had cataract surgery and had a Crystalens lens implanted. The result is fabulous. I will be scheduling surgery for my other eye next month. Everybody was wonderful--the staff, the hospital....but the Dr. Gaster was the best!!!

Outstanding result

I suffer from dry eyes. Dr. Gaster used a special procedure on me that activated by own glands in the eye, which alleviated the dryness. I go once a month for a treatment. No one else has been able to help me except for prescribing medications. This treatment helped a lot more.

I went to Dr. Gaster for persistent dry eyes. He did a procedure where he increased the comfort of my eyes and now my dry eyes seem much improved. I see him monthly for a treatment and use no more artificial tears. He also has a fabulous beside manner and explains everything.
