Brief History

The Shettle Eye Center

The Shettle Eye Center was founded in 1972 by the father of the family, Philip L. Shettle, D.O., a board certified ophthalmologist. He was one of the first ophthalmologists to establish his practice in Pinellas County, providing expert eye care at the same location since 1972. Dr. Philip Shettle built his practice on the philosophy of providing personal and friendly eye care to each individual patient in a relaxed atmosphere using state of the art equipment.

Dr. Philip Shettle's middle son, D. Scott Shettle, O.D. a board certified optometrist, joined the practice to add his special areas of expertise. His youngest son, Todd Shettle, O.D., joined the practice in 1994 uniting the family of eye care professionals in their shared desire to offer the most personalized, complete and skilled eye care possible. Shettle Optical Solutions also provides quality frames and lenses for all ages, in all price ranges, conveniently located on site.

The combined strengths brought to the practice by his sons, has given Dr. Philip Shettle some additional time and freedom to expand his leadership skills and knowledge for the benefit of his profession and community. The name "Shettle" is well-known in eye care, both locally and nationally.

The Shettle Eye Center was awarded the Best Ophthalmology practice by the Florida Medical Business Magazine in 2000.
