Dr. Moster was recommended to me by my optometrist that I had been seeing for nearly 20 years. Since my early 30's I've had high IOP around 22 on both eyes, nearly 10 years later I was diagnosed with Glaucoma after tests showed some vision loss. When pressure started to rise to high 20's I started using drops to manage IOP pressure. Now years after medicine and laser surgery no longer effective, I went to see Dr. Moster to see what my options were. When I talked to her she was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable, especially when she displayed a positive outlook and promised me that she wouldn't let me go blind. The first surgery was called GATT surgery, which was less invasive than Tabeculectomy, but that surgery did not go well since my eye bleed to much and she couldn't complete it. So she performed the trabeculectomy on my right and left eye. The pressure on my right eye 6 months after surgery is 11 and my left eye 1 month after surgery is 13. I am 49 years old and plan on having my site till old age, but without Dr. Moster I don't think the would be possible. I hated the thought of having surgery, but Dr. Moster was so confident in her skills that it make me believe that it was the best option, and now I do believe it, nothing else beside surgery would of helped. Dr. Moster cares very much for her patients and it shows in how she talks to you. She called me next morning to see how I was doing, even after she flew out of state to do a lecture. How amazing is that! I can't thank her enough for what she did. I will continue to see Dr. Moster, I know she is someone I can rely on for the future.

I am a 51 year old man who has been battling glaucoma since early 20's. I have already suffered significant vision loss and have continuously searched for options to limit future loss. After a trabeculectomy 4 years ago caused immediate incremental loss of vision followed by closure which mitigated effectiveness of pressure control, I was "done" with procedures for fear of acceleration of the very loss of vision I was targeting to decelerate. Other Ophthalmologists I saw for options talked "at" me and told me what I "had to do" and were irritable when I asked "why" and "at what risk". Dr. Moster was referred to me by a trusted Ophthalmologist and my first visit was 2 years ago. The first visit outlined options but in a manner that was consultative. The second visit, almost a year later, she presented the option of canaloplasty. In the last 6 months I have had canaloplasty on both eyes, with a resulting pressure in both of 13 from 18-20. As a patient, I would recommend Dr. Moster not only for her surgical skills and experience with up to date glaucoma treatment, but also her (and her team) for creating an open, honest dialogue on options. I do think it is worthwhile to point out that in the many visits I drive to Philly to see her, every time she was educating, training, and explaining to residents and staff members. On a personal level I take this as a sign of not only her passion for “getting it right” but in the investment to teach and train others. We will see if the canaloplasty is short or long term, but I would recommend Dr. Moster and her team for top quality glaucoma care and treatment.

Dr. Moster is the bomb!!!!! She is the best eye specialist in the country displaying superb professionalism mixed with bubbly personality, honesty, and sincere about the work she does and the end result from her work. If they have ballots to select her as one of the top doctors in the nationI would be the first in line dropping her name in the ballot box. Summing up my experience, let me take a phrase form Pharell, "I'm happy"!!!!!!!

Likely one of the best glaucoma doctors in the country. She's clearly a very busy person but takes her time with you and demonstrates a very personal interest in you. She has kept my glaucoma stable for years.
