Kurt J. Bennett O.D., F.S.L.S.

Dr. Bennett graduated from University of Missouri St. Louis College of Optometry in 2013. He graduated with accolades including the Jackson Scholarship, Alcon Case Report Winner, and the Varillux Student Grant. He then went on to teach optics and contact lens to ophthalmology residents at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore as the Faculty Optometrist. Two years later Dr. Bennett left his teaching position to join the largest HMO in the United States Kaiser Permanete. During his five years at Kaiser, Dr. Bennett worked with multiple specialists treating a variety of conditions, thus culminating in a holistic view of eye disease treatment and management.

Now a proud Ohioan, Dr. Bennett enjoys the many hiking and biking trails Columbus has to offer with his wife Norah and pet Cockapoo. Additionally Dr. Bennett enjoys donating his time and resources to non-profits including the Southern Poverty Law Center, Michael J Fox Parkinson’s Foundation, and the NAACP.
