I had such a great experience after recently changing optometrist to Kent Eye Clinic. Dr. Hofeldt and his staff were so warm and welcoming to me as a new patient. I would recommend this office to any of my close family and friends. Thank you for the great service!

Had another opportunity to see Dr. Kurt at the new location of Kent Eye Clinic. The office is fantastic and well-appointed and the staff is very professional and knowledgeable. Myself having a tight schedule and pressed for time, they were able to fit me in and the appointment itself was paced so I was out before an hour’s time. Dr. Kurt’s expertise is something I rely on to make sure my eyes are healthy and I can count on the quality vision experience he provides (as well as his staff) in the office and outside with the right prescription. Here’s a shout out: great job Kent Eye Clinic!

I have been going to Dr. Hofeldt for 6 years and he is by far the best optometrist I’ve ever had. He is very knowledgeable and thorough and always takes the time explain what he’s doing, why he’s doing it, and what the results are during the eye exam. My job requires me to work on a computer all day so he helped set me up with some glasses that will protect my eyes from any damage my computer monitors could cause.

Everyone working there is friendly and professional. Dr Hofeldt was thorough and helpful and the new optomap machine is nifty. The optician I saw was helpful in finding frames that worked with my face and also my budget. Recommend.

I took my 6 years old daughter to Dr. Hofeldt for her first eye exam. It was such a fun experience for her as the staff and assistants are super nice and patient with her. Dr. Hofeldt was a very attentive and caring during the exam, and provided thorough explanation to me and my daughter regarding her exam result.

The Doctor was nice, gave me a prescription for glasses and contacts. He answered my questions an provided a good experience. The woman at the front desk really put the pressure on me to buy some glasses. She did not have a good understanding of my insurance and twisted the information around to make me feel pressure to buy something. I am glad I went elsewhere with my prescription where I was able to get glasses and contacts covered under my insurance.

The staff and the doctor were extremely nice and very professional. We were seen in a timely manner.
- Angela G. Kent, United States - Patient from 2016
I like that Dr. Hofeldt is a genuine, caring person, who is mindful of our time. I used to go to another place in Kent (Kosnosky) and they would have me waiting for over an hour with dialated eyes. My last appointment with them took over 2 hours.
- Andy M. Kent, United States - Patient from 2016
I walked into the clinic without an appt in the morning time. It was busy with other patients but the front desk lady acknowledged me right away and I was really impressed with how nice and informative she was. It was a bummer because I found out that my insurance is not in network with this clinic. I’m going to see if I can change my insurance provider to go to this clinic because I can see that their customer service is excellent and that’s important to me. Highly recommended.

I have been going to the same eye doctor for over 10 years. After my appointment today at the Kent Eye Clinic I have found a new eye clinic. The front desk staff was inviting. Ms. Renee and the other young lady were knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Dr. Kurt Hofeldt was a absolute pleasure to meet. He’s very easy going, told me they like to treat the patients like family and by the end of the visit I agreed. The best part of my visit was when he informed me of a program that gives eye exams to children up to 1 year old. I’m looking forward to bringing my 7 month old son in for his first exam. I liked the selection of frames that were available. I felt as if they had something for everyone under all price points. I also appreciated the usage of technology. Definitely different than my previous optometrist. I look forward to a long standing relationship.

I saw Dr. Hofeldt and he was everything I like in an eye Dr. He listened to my history, did not argue with me about how close I hold things to read and discovered a small cataract has turned my lens yellow. This is why I see the bathroom as painted green everyone says blue. I bought 3 pairs of eyeglasses (daily, reading/computer and sun glasses for only $825! I usually pay $500 for one pair. Staff is friendly and does not push for extras. Well worth the 40 minute drive.

I have been a patient here for a couple of years now and they have always been very helpful and are never pushy about getting new glasses if they are not needed. The new state of the art equipment also makes the exam a breeze and the overall appointment is quick and easy.
- Nathan E. Seattle, United States - Patient from 2016
I’ve been procrastinating an eye appointment for a long time. Then I broke my closeup glasses… Jumped online to see what was close by and found the Benson Eye Clinic. They have great reviews online, here on Yelp and elsewhere. The staff is great and all were very friendly and super helpful. I saw Dr Huang last Wednesday before Thanksgiving. She is wonderful! Thorough, patient, and she explained the whole eye exam process along the way, which I really appreciate. A great experience and I’m glad I found them.
- René F. Renton, United States - Patient from 2014
This place is amazing! Everyone staffed here are so friendly and helpful. I received an excellent state-of-the-art eye exam. Everything was explained so well. Dr. Hofeldt is so personable and patient. Explained all the options available to my situation. This was my first eye exam in 20 years! I was a little nervous, but everyone put me at ease. I definitely will be telling anyone who wants a great eye clinic, this is it! My husband will be switching over to Dr. Hofeldt before his next exam is due. They did a great job explaining what my insurance paid and didn’t pay for. There were no surprises.

This is as good as it gets in an eye clinic for your family. I thought my eyes were okay, then Dr. Thoreby had imaging done to check overall eye health. I did need new glasses, however he sent a message to my regular doctor about something he was concerned about from the imaging. He did some tests immediately and found out it was nothing worry about, but should be monitored along with routine eye exam each year. My new glasses are so sharp, I especially noticed the difference when driving. The entire staff is very efficient and they work as a team to provide great eye care. I urged my wife to have her eyes checked too, and she loves this clinic too.

One of the best eye exams I’ve ever had. The doctor was so thorough with both my husband and I. He took time to explain everything to us and was so genuine and down to earth. They took an up close picture of our eyes and we were able to see it all in the office. All the girls were so friendly and helpful. It took us a long time to pick out new glasses, but they were so patient and amazing. Even though we are moving up to Seattle soon, we will be coming back here for all of our vision needs. Thanks for being amazing!!
- Jenn F. Rancho Santa Margarita, United States - Patient from 2015
Good optometrist, good exam, good selections of frames, and choices for optics. I especially liked the service that Christina gave me in selecting the perfect frames. I’ve worn glasses since the mid 80s and she gave me the best help in deciding that I’ve ever gotten. I’m very happy with the services and my frames. I’ll definitely be back next time I have the need

Clean and very professional office. Newer technology and very personable Doctor that I saw. Overall very good experience with this office.
- Don G. Federal Way, United States - Patient from 2015
Go check the out, very Friendly staff, Doc will do a great job explaining everything and they seem to have some killer sales on Sunglasses!!
- Tyson S. Seattle, United States - Patient from 2015
This eye center is by far the best eye clinic I have ever been to, they go out of their way to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for. They even ordered a specific set of frames I had my heart set on, they make you feel like a vip. Everything from scheduling, the exam, to selecting frames was very thorough and I am 100% satisfied, I will never go anywhere else as long as I am living in Kent. Amazing staff! A+++
- Destiny L. Kent, United States - Patient from 2015
This was my first time at the Kent Eye Clinic. I have seen eye doctors since I was five years old. Very impressed in how the movement and speed of the eye exam went. Dr. Hofeldt was very patient and seemed very knowledgeable about my particular situation of early cataracts. He also talked about possible referrals to quality clinics for cataract surgery. I appreciated that.
- augusto r. Kent, United States - Patient from 2015
It was a great experience. They checked my insurance beforehand to ensure it was a smooth process for me. Everyone was friendly. You can tell they care about their work. I went home and told my husband he needs to make an appointment!
- Laura G. Renton, United States - Patient from 2015
Dr. Hofeldt and his staff are amazing. They go out of there way to be helpful and thorough. Their staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this place, and they have only gotten better since they moved offices.
- Ryan W. Kent, United States - Patient from 2015
I took my daughter to Kent Eye Clinic for her first eye exam (she’s 6). Dr. Hofeldt was very patient and kind, and explained things to her in a way that made her feel comfortable. He also examined my eyes and I found him to be more professional and informative than most eye doctors I have been to. And his knowledge of contact lenses is amazing!
- Hayden M. Kent, United States - Patient from 2014
Great place to get your glasses. I came here because my insurance listed about 8 or 9 different places to get glasses, but only this place was a dedicated office that wasn’t some Fred Meyer’s or Lenscrafters store. I wanted a personal office, and I found what I was looking for here. The employees were nice and energetic, and Dr. Hofeldt was very professional, yet human. He seemed to just care about his job, and he was pleasant to talk to while giving me my eye exam. The cost for me was pretty cheap, though I do have eye coverage in my insurance. I would recommend this place if you’re in the Renton/Benson area. I surely enjoyed getting my glasses here.

Location is very convenient. Its beside starbucks 🙂 Dr. Kurt is amazing very thorough very calm very natural very knowledgeable. The receptionist are very nice they answer all my questions. The contact lenses price is very good and the selection of eyeglasses are amazing. I am coming back and i will tell my family & friends about this eyeclinic. Thank you Dr. Kurt 🙂

Visiting Dr. Hofeldt was first time I have visited an eye doctor and not a salesperson. I’ve worn glasses half of my life, and I have had many experiences with “eye glass fitters”. Dr. Hofeldt really cares about my eyes and because of this, he is the eye doctor for my entire family. Give him and his staff a visit, you won’t be disappointed.
- Aaron J. Renton, United States - Patient from 2013
Dr. Kurt Hofeldt and his team at the Kent Eye Clinic are amazing. I had a recent eye emergency late on a Sunday night and they responded immediately making sure that I was taken care of and comfortable. I could not say enough good things about Kent Eye Clinic. If you are shopping for an eye doctor that will go above and beyond I would highly recommend Kent Eye Clinic.
