Trey Benfield, OD

Trey Benfield is a North Carolina native born in Shelby, NC. He graduated from Winthrop University, double majoring in Business Administration and Biology. From there he went to the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Optometry and graduated in 2004 with a Doctor of Optometry. After graduation, Dr. Benfield completed a residency in ocular disease and pathology at the Tuscaloosa Veteran’s Administration Medical Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

After working in western Alabama, Dr. Benfield was convinced he wanted to practice in a rural setting. When a job opportunity opened with Patty Vision Center he found a perfect fit in Yanceyville, NC. Dr. Benfield has worked with Patty Vision Center, since 2005 and has thoroughly enjoyed providing eye care for Caswell County and Alamance County. He also enjoys going on mission trips and has traveled to Honduras, Nicaragua, Belize, and Mexico with the Fellowship of Christian Optometrists.

Dr. Benfield has been married for over 15 years to his beautiful wife Tamzen, and they both enjoy raising their sons Miles and Blake.  He is an elder and occasional preacher at Resurrection Church in Hillsborough, NC.  In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, and reading history, theology, and literature.  Dr. Benfield is also attempting to raise chickens.

Most Thorough Eye Exam I have ever gotten. I brought my 9 year old daughter in for an exam and I was impressed on how the Dr. explained each step to her answering all of her crazy questions with a smile. It’s obvious from our experience there that the staff are very dedicated to their roles and care about the patients they are serving.

Dr. Benfield is awesome. His bedside manner with my timid three year old was calming. If your child has yet to have their eyes examined, Dr. Benfield is a must!

I HIGHLY recommend Patty Vision Center. Everyone in the office is so helpful and considerate. They were able to help me when my recent eye doctor turned me away and many others in the beginning of the pandemic. Since then they have taken the BEST care of me. If you need a good eye doctor, this is the place for you!
