Dr. Christina Kreinest joined our practice in July of 2014. She is a native of Northern Kentucky. She graduated with a B.S. in Biology from the University of Kentucky in December of 2008 and then went on to the Indiana School of Optometry. She graduated with a Doctorate in Optometry in May of 2013.

While at IUSO, she was a member of the Volunteer Optometric Services for Humanity (VOSH) and a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honor Society. She completed her externships at the VA medical center in Lexington, KY and Huntington, WV.

In June 2014, Dr. Kreinest completed an optometric primary care residency at the Lexington VA Medical Center.

Dr. Kreinest currently serves as a Trustee with the Kentucky Optometric Association as well as a member with the American Optometric Association and the American Academy of Optometry. She is currently working towards her fellowship of the American Academy of Optometry and becoming a diplomate of the American Board of Optometry.

Dr. Kreinest lives in Ryland Heights, KY with her two Labrador retrievers, Reese and Bailey.

She is excited to be back in Northern Kentucky practicing at Metzger Eye Care.

The Metzger Eye Care family has lost one of their own. Please be patient with us as we mourn the loss of our company’s founder, Dr. Ferdinand Joseph Metzger.

Dr. Ferd was a Korean War Veteran and attended Optometry School on the GI Bill. He was a 1957 graduate of Illinois College of Optometry and the first licensed optometrist in Boone County. He spent his life as a skilled, respected, and knowledgeable eye care practitioner for his patients. He was a leader in his profession as President of both the Kentucky Board of Optometric Examiners and the Kentucky Optometric Association (KOA). He was awarded the Clifford Leadingham Award by the KOA for his lifetime dedication to the profession of Optometry.

He was so proud to follow his uncles in the profession of optometry and thrilled to practice with his daughter, Mary Jo as an optician and optometrist Dr. Julie and nephew, Dr. Bill for so many years. We’re sure he will be greeted at heaven’s gate by our former optician Vina with a great big cheesecake for him and his wife Audrey as they reunite once again. Services are being arranged by Chambers and Grubbs Funeral Home in Florence.
