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.

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.
Dr. Charles Srisatayasunton
Dr. Charles has always seen vision as a vital sense to many patients, motivating him to pursue a career in optometry to help preserve and enhance patients’ health through their eyes. “Vision is such an important sense to many people, if any one of our patients lost that, it would drastically change their daily lives.” Dr. Charles has gone on countless mission trips as a student and doctor, but one experience solidified his dedication to the profession after prescribing a pair of glasses to a 70 year old patient, who was able to finally see clearly for the first time. Dr. Charles believes learning is a lifelong process and continues to strive to provide the most up-to-date technology to not only provide clearer vision to patients, but also provide preventative eye care such as myopia control with specialty contact lenses.
Dr. Charles is a native to Washington state, graduating from Washington University with a double major in Biochemistry and Dance and later completing his Doctor of Optometry Degree at Pacific University in Oregon. His clinical training extends from LASIK co-management centers, Vision Therapy specialty clinics, as well as Myopia Management here at Kent Eye Clinic.
Dr. Charles enjoys keeping a healthy and balanced lifestyle by practicing calisthenics and exploring new cuisines.
