Eye Doctors Serving Kent and Renton

The eye doctors at Kent Eye Clinic (or Kent Vision Source) believe in 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. Dr. Kurt Hofeldt, Dr. Sean Thoreby, and Dr. Ryan Beck know that the right prescription is vital for clarity, efficiency, and processing visual information seamlessly.

From designer brands of eyewear, updating your supply of contact lenses, or a routine eye exam, our optometrists will ensure your eye health lasts. Thorough eye exams are the ideal treatment for eye diseases, as early detection can prevent the development of glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy.

Dr. Hofeldt is Kent’s local specialty contact lens specialist, where he fits scleral lenses for conditions like keratoconus or severe astigmatism, overnight lenses or ortho-k lenses (orthokeratology) for myopia control or as an alternative to LASIK. (Although we do co-management for LASIK or cataract surgery, too.)

Q&A with Our Doctors | What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

How do I know if I have Dry Eye?

Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

Is there anything I can do to prevent DES?

Dry eye is multifactorial, and each person’s dry eye is unique to them. To help prevent dry eye, make sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.

Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or when watching television. During times of the year when there is less humidity, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.

Dry eye is a condition affecting the front surface of the eye that is caused by either a low volume of tears or because the quality of your tears is poor. Your natural tears provide moisture & nourishment to the front surface of the eye. Any change in the normal chemistry of your tears can start contributing to dry eye issues.
