Shetal (Nicky) Shah, M.D. is a practicing ophthalmologist in Long Island, NY specializing in the medical and surgical treatment of corneal diseases, cataract surgery and ocular surface diseases such as dry eyes and blepharitis.
Dr. Shah grew up in Long Island, New York, completing her undergraduate education at New York University where she obtained a B.A. in Biochemistry. She then attended medical school at SUNY Downstate.
In her clinical practice, Dr. Shah realized that one of the most challenging and prevalent ocular surface conditions are dry eyes and blepharitis (Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids in which they become red, irritated and itchy with dandruff-like scales that form on the eyelashes. It is often caused by bacteria getting onto the lashes). Many women who seek her care, although aggravated by blepharitis symptoms, refuse to adhere to the basic medical advise of selecting safe, healthy eye make-up. This inspired Dr. Shah to become an advisor to GrayLane Beauty and its commitment to the Clean Beauty movement.

"In addition to their commitment to clean beauty, I chose to advise GrayLane Beauty because their model encourages members to have safer beauty practices by changing out their mascara every quarter, and as a result, reduces the eye area's potential exposure to unwanted bacteria."
