Professional & Accessible

The practice is very professional and accessible. I have an ongoing condition that needs monitoring and I feel like I can be seen as soon as I have any problem. Your vision is extremely crucial to your life and you need to have confidence in your doctors.

Professional & Courteous

The doctors and staff are very professional and courteous, they explain every detail the patient will be going through. My doctor, Dr. Shirkey, is awesome. I never felt the needle going in my eye. In my opinion, she’s a top notch doctor. I’d recommend her and Retina Associates to all my family and friends.

Dr. Hollins is one of the best Doctors I have ever had.

I totally trust his judgment and recommendations. He is very courteous and professional. Retinal Associates is a great office with caring and professional staff. Would highly recommend them and Dr. Hollins to everybody. I hope he never retires.

Extremely Grateful

I was so nervous not knowing exactly what to expect. The staff was amazing and very understanding. Everything was explained to me prior to anything starting. I am extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to be a patient! Thank you for the care and attention! HIGHLY recommend!

Thank you

I love Dr. Shirkey and Dr. Kitchens they are truly my all time favorites. They most definitely show compassion and they care for their patients. It’s not ideal for anyone to have vision issues especially if it’s severe, so to have a doctor that you trust is of the up most importance when you’re relying on them to put a needle in your eye, and in the maintenance and constant care needed.

Kind Doctors

The doctor was very kind, and answered all my questions, even the ones that I thought were stupid. She made it way less scary than when I went in.

Thank you

Very friendly and knowledgeable!

Charles is a patient of Retina Associates. Through their treatment and patient care, he has retained his vision. Thank you, Dr. Blake and his associates!


This practice is so efficient with excellent Doctors and resources. I love the fact that they are cleared to participate in research. On a scale of 1 to 5, they shine out as a 10.

Top Notch.

I can’t say enough about Retina Associates of Kentucky! The physicians are top notch and the staff is so kind and accommodating. My husband had a sub retinal bleed and his result was nothing short of a miraculous! We are so fortunate to have physicians of this caliber with several locations offering access to so many.

Thank You!

If any of you guys work for Retinal Associates of KY (specifically if you were in the Louisville office)….thank you!!! My mom went in Friday and she had great techs who helped tremendously! She said that you guys helped ease her nerves and helped her make it through a rough situation!
