Dr. Kurt Hofeldt, OD

Dr. Kurt Hofeldt is an optometrist who has been providing quality eye care in Kent, Washington for over five years. After completing his optometry degree at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, he has focused his career on helping patients who suffer from dry eyes and irregular corneas. Through extensive training, he is now considered to be an expert in specialty contact lenses, helping those with keratoconus, astigmatism, presbyopia, blepharitis, and much more. In 2008, Dr. Hofeldt had the unique opportunity to travel to Australia and work side-by-side with one of the creators in Orthokeratology; a safe and effective process by which myopia (nearsightedness) can be controlled by a custom-made contact. With increasing computer and phone use, Dr. Hofeldt is seeing a much greater need to control the progression of kids myopia. Dr. Hofeldt is especially interested in working with children to help them achieve their maximum visual potential. Growing up, Dr. Hofeldt suffered from colorblindness and reading dyslexia. He personally understands the importance of having adequate sight for proper learning and development. Dr. Hofeldt participates in the InfantSEE program. This program offers a free eye exam to those between six and twelve months of age. Our eyes are constantly developing until our twenties and it's very important to check them once a year to make sure they're healthy and seeing their best. He recommends a comprehensive eye exam once a year starting at age three; even for children showing no signs or symptoms. In his free time, you can find Dr. Hofeldt outside exploring the Great Pacific Northwest and traveling elsewhere around the world. He loves backcountry skiing and sailing, but can also be found mountain biking, kayaking, or rock climbing. Of course Dr. Hofeldt has all the right gear for his eyes, including ski goggles, floatable sunglasses, and sport sunglasses specially made for mountain biking. Ask him about them at your next visit.
