Dr. Mettu's Care Philosophy
As a medical retina specialist I am passionate about providing state-of-the-art care to patients with age-related macular degeneration diabetic retinopathy retinal vein occlusion and other macular diseases. I approach each patient as an individual and strive to provide care that addresses his or her unique needs and goals. For each of my patients I carefully consider exam findings and results of advanced retinal imaging studies and use this information to design a personalized treatment strategy. In my role as a physician I enjoy most the enduring relationships that I build with patients and their families and the opportunities that I have to make a lasting positive impact on their lives. In addition to patient care I maintain an active clinical and laboratory research program. I am actively involved in clinical trials of new treatments for age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy and in studies of new imaging technologies for improved diagnosis and monitoring of macular diseases. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and children.
