The physicians of Florida Eye Specialists share a common passion for excellence in eye care. All have dedicated numerous years of medical school, residency, fellowship and post-fellowship training to research and education in eye disease. Each doctor is uniquely qualified in a subspecialty of ophthalmology.
Prior to founding Florida Eye Specialists in 2009, Dr. Shetty spent seven years as an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic. In 2011, Dr. Kathryn Freidl joined after training at the prestigious Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia. The practice expanded in 2012 to welcome Dr. David Kostick, who brings a wealth of knowledge from his 16 years as an assistant professor at the Mayo Clinic.
Dr. Kostick has earned a strong reputation in cosmetic eyelid and eyebrow surgery, in reconstructive surgery for patients with Graves’ disease and eyelid cancers, and in treating orbital tumors, orbital trauma, and nasolacimal disorders. Likewise, Dr. Shetty is a pioneer in cataract and glaucoma surgery and was the first surgeon in Florida to perform the minimally invasive Trabectome procedure. Dr. Freidl is also a specialist in glaucoma and cataracts and is involved in several research studies in glaucoma.
Together, this team of specialists has developed one of the leading eye care centers in Florida with an emphasis on compassionate, patient-centered treatments.
