Katie Greiner, OD MS
Class of 2009

I am employed full-time at Northeast Ohio Eye Surgeons in Stow and Kent, Ohio with five ophthalmologists and two other optometrists. I was a student intern there in 2008 and always hoped to be able to join the practice, as it is located close to my hometown and offers a wide variety of patient care opportunities. I practice medical-based optometry and specialty contact lens fittings along with serving as a facilitator for the refractive surgery division of the practice. I really enjoy hosting an optometry extern each quarter because teaching is one my passions. Prior to this position, I served for two years as Clinical Director of TLC Laser Eye Center in Columbus and as an attending in the Contact Lens and Primary Vision Services at The Ohio State University College of Optometry.

I am the Membership Chair for the Ohio Optometric Association and the Governor Elect of my local Zone. I also serve on the EastWest Planning Committee as co-chair of the Allied Eye Professionals Education track. In the community, I participate in the RealEyes program, volunteer as an elf on the Polar Express train, and serve as Membership Chair for the local Lions Club chapter where we also host eye screenings, collect eyeglasses, sponsor seeing eye dogs, and fundraise for the community’s needy. I am an avid skier and love to travel the world. I reside in Twinsburg with my husband Nathan and son, Henry. Optometry has always been a dream of mine, and I am so happy to be doing what I love every day. I enjoy staying in touch with so many OSU colleagues and especially reconnecting at national meetings.
