Welcome to Kent Eye Clinic (formerly Benson Eye Clinic)
The eye doctors at Kent Eye Clinic believe in providing quality eye care for you and your family. We take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Doctor Kurt Hofeldt knows that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly.
Most prescriptions given by eye doctors are a close proximation, but getting the right prescription takes quality eye care. Whether you are searching for a pair of glasses or lenses, an important part of getting your routine eye exam each year is with a professional optemtrist like Dr. Hofeldt.
Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting, treatment for an eye disease (such as keratoconus, glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy) or even eye surgery such as LASIK or cataract surgery, our eye doctors will provide you with expert care, advice, options and follow up.

Specialty Contact Lenses in Kent, Washington
Dr. Hofeldt is a contact lens expert and is proud to provide this care in Kent, Renton, Auburn and the South King County region.
Our practice is focused on quality primary care optometry and specialty contact lenses for patients with irregular corneas. In addition to the newest technologies at our clinic, this high level of contact lens care is only attainable because of Dr. Hofeldt's training and experiences in the last 13 years. He's had opportunities to work side-by-side with some of the best contact lens optometrists from around the World and is now becoming a top level doctor with the new designs he's creating for our patients.
When standard glasses or contact lenses cannot achieve the standard 20/20, we seek alternative solutions. In most cases 20/20 eye sight can be achieved using custom designed contact lenses. Custom designs allow superior comfort and the best clarity possible when comparing to other forms of correction. We offer a variety of special contact lens designs for all eyes. The following are a few of the more common diagnosis Dr. Hofeldt is treating with contact lenses at our office:
- Presbyopia (ages 40+
- Dry Eyes (Yes! Here's your chance to get back into contacts from dryness!)
- Orthokeratology (non-LASIK candidates, worsening Myopia)
- Keratoconus (Very steep or cone-shaped eye)
Our patients have been extremely satisfied with the results and care provided by our team. If you feel you or a family member could benefit from our services, we would love the opportunity to help. Schedule an appointment with us today to see how we can help you get the best prescription for your eyes.

Kids Myopia Control
Many eye doctors have recently tried to control myopia (nearsightedness) in children by slowing its progression and therefore impact healthy vision. Although there are many ways to slow myopia Kent Eye Clinic can provide the expertise needed on how to best help your child with this issue.
International research in myopia control abounds and is always being updated with newer methodology. Typical approaches are Orthokeratology / OrthoK and multifocal contact lenses.(Atropine eye drops and multifocal glasses are slowly being discontinued because of their drawbacks & ineffectiveness compared to OrthoK & mutlifocals.)
