I first came to Dr. Kitchens because of my Dr. having difficulties with my prescription. Dr Kitchens told me I had scarring which may or may not be related to one of my many heart medications. I saw him for rechecks periodically. I woke up one morning with no vision in my left eye. That is how I started on my journey, From hemorrhage, to infection, to surgery, to removal my cataract. I will now see a Dr. in Pikeville to have my right eye done. Great work Retina Assoc. for saving m
