Dr. Gaster is a knowledgeable ophthalmologist and a wonderful, kind human being. I was diagnosed with Keratoconus at a young age and have been under his care for about 5 years. I am fortunate to have found him. In the last 5 years, Dr. Gaster has allowed me to reach the best vision I can. After a corneal crosslinking procedure, a corneal transplant, and PRK, I see respectively 20/25 in both eyes (unaided). This is a significant improvement as I was 20/60 in the right eye and 20/4 fingers in the left.
