Dr. Kurt Hofeldt

Dr. Kurt Hofeldt is an optometrist who has been providing quality eye care in Kent, Washington since 2011. 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, dry eyes, 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.  Ask for Dr. Hofeldt if you are interested in Myopia Control.

In his free time, you can find Dr. Hofeldt outside exploring the Great Pacific Northwest and traveling elsewhere around the world. He loves back country 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 sports sunglasses specially made for mountain biking. Ask him about them at your next visit.


Dr. Jennifer Huynh

Dr. Jennifer Huynh’s passion for eye care stemmed from years of volunteering with health organizations throughout her education, such as Lion’s Club and VOSH, to provide accessible eye care to underserved communities in different countries. “Health is something that is very important to my family and community growing up, a lot of times it was the only thing that we had. I wanted to enter a field where I can improve my patient’s quality of life in any way, no matter how minor.”

Born and raised in sunny Southern California, Dr. Huynh obtained her B.S. in Biological Sciences with a focus in Medical Biology at University of California, Riverside, and continued to pursue her Optometry Degree at Western University of Health Sciences. From medical-focused optometry clinics in Seattle and San Diego, to VA hospitals in Orlando and South Carolina, Dr. Huynh made the decision to move to the PNW after falling in love with Seattle. It was here that Dr. Huynh grew her love for treating patients suffering from dry eye disease as well as other various anterior segment diseases. From at home-therapeutics to the latest innovative in-office treatments, Dr. Huynh is a firm believer in individualized preventative eye care for each patient when it comes to dry eye disease. “I want our patients’ eyes to look and feel as comfortable as they can be, I never want them to just simply tolerate it. Our patients deserve more than that.”

Being new to Seattle, Dr. Huynh loves to explore the city and nature Washington has to offer. True to her hometown, Dr. Huynh cheers for the Los Angeles Angels and Anaheim Ducks.
