Dr. Gaster’s unique combination of skill and experience as an ophthalmologist allows him to be on the cutting edge of the latest eye disease and surgery developments. He is an international expert in Corneal Cross-Linking, also known as CXL, or Collagen Cross-Linking. He specializes in blade-less, All-Laser LASIK surgery that only utilizes lasers instead of metal blades, resulting in safer surgery and a faster recovery period, often with 20/20 or better vision. He uses the Femtosecond laser to make the corneal flap and the Allegretto or VISX laser to perform the ablation to correct near sightedness, far sightedness and astigmatism. For small incision cataract surgery, Dr. Gaster uses the femtosecond laser for the cataract and astigmatic incisions and to soften the cataract, and utilizes Advanced Technology intraocular lenses, such as the Tecnis Multifocal, ReSTOR, and Crystalens for presbyopia or the Toric lens for correction of astigmatism, as appropriate. He performs his surgeries only at state-of-the-art surgery centers and only with the latest advanced technology. Dr. Gaster also treats dry eyes with the newest technologies including tear osmolarity testing, lid margin debridement, Meibomian gland expression and LipiFlow for Meibomian gland dysfunction.
