Dr Shetty recently did both of my eyes for cataracts by laser and I chose to have the multi focal lense. It was the best choice I have made and I wouldn’t have done it with any other eye surgeon. He is detailed, professional and has a great staff and clean office.

I am forever grateful that my local opthalmologist referred me to Dr. Shetty to treat my glaucoma. He is very thorough and explains my progress at every visit. He seems to listen carefully to what I say to him. I feel that I am in the care of the best eye physician for my situation.
