Dr. Manko received her doctorate of optometry from The Ohio State University in 2012 and joined Vision One that same year. Dr. Manko enjoys seeing patients of all ages for well-vision exams, contact lens fittings, and ocular disease treatment and management. She is a member of the Kentucky Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association. Dr. Manko chose a career in optometry to help people to have a positive experience solving their visual needs. Being extremely nearsighted herself, she grew up loving each new pair of glasses and the excitement of wearing contact lenses for the first time - and years to come. She continues to love helping patients achieve their visual goals with the proper eyewear prescriptions and contact lenses for both everyday wear or special occasions, but she has also come to love the medical aspect of optometry as well.
Karen lives in Cincinnati with her husband and two young children. She enjoys chatting about local restaurants, music, board games, Survivor (yes, it's still on TV!), hiking and travel destinations.
