About Me

My ophthalmology practice includes expertise in cornea and external diseases, cataract and refractive surgery, and other eye conditions.

I've always wanted a career where I could help people. What makes me happy in life is when I can help someone in need.

Providing a medical or surgical therapy can truly change a patient's quality of life. When people tell me how grateful they are for my care, it makes me feel good about what I do. I also enjoy educating medical students and resident physicians.

In addition to my ophthalmology work at Ohio State, I have participated in medical mission trips to Nicaragua and Ghana with Ohio State colleagues. We've done vision screenings, corneal transplants, cataract surgery and other treatments for children and adults. It’s always a rewarding experience. The people there are so appreciative. I love knowing I've helped change someone's life.

I enjoy working at Ohio State. Ohio State's Eye and Ear Institute is a beautiful facility and easy to access. We have modern equipment and spacious exam rooms. We have the resources and expertise to help people in many ways.

    All good

    She acted as if an average person should know what type of special surgeon I would need to take care of my particular eye issue. She acted as if I was wasting her time and was very short and blunt. I know she is a surgeon, so most important skill for a surgeon isn't bedside manner, but it would have been nice if she practiced a bit of tenderness.

    Dr Kuennen saved my eye over 15 years ago, therefore, in my eyes (gratefully, BOTH of them!), she can do no wrong. She is EXCEPTIONAL.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 09/29/2023, Dr. Kuennen has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
