Watching Nature’s Beauty Grow
Dr. Lee Shettle sees all of his patients himself to establish a more personal relationship. He is dedicated and committed to taking the time to help each and every patient understand their unique visual, medical or surgical condition, personally giving them the best possible options in the decision-making process for their illness. He believes a patient who understands the reasons or mechanisms as to why they have a certain condition greatly improves their prognosis and can provide them with the best visual outcome.
Dr. Shettle believes that it is extremely important to take the time to inform you, the patient, as to what expectations and visual outcomes you should experience and expect. Treating every patient individually, along with education, is the key to a successful and lifelong patient-doctor relationship. He places great emphasis on trying to remember each patient’s name and listening to their history in order to best diagnose and treat their ocular condition.
Dr. Lee Shettle specializes in small incision cataract and intraocular lens implant surgery, in addition to having a special interest in working with several ophthalmic pharmaceutical companies to help them develop medical eye drops for the treatment of dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, and ocular inflammation.
