Meet Dr. Michael Benedict

Dr. Benedict knew he wanted to become an optometrist after his first time viewing the retina through an ophthalmoscope in high school. A Missouri native, Dr. Benedict has been practicing optometry for nearly 9 years, helping patients achieve exceptional eye health through precise prescription updates and personalized treatment plans.

Dr. Benedict’s friendly and honest demeanor helps him build rapport with his patients of all ages. He particularly enjoys working with pediatric patients because he knows how transformative clear vision can be for a child. When he’s not guiding his patients on their path to better vision, Dr. Benedict enjoys traveling the country and visiting national parks with his wife, daughters, and dogs. He also enjoys watching movies, sports, and playing video games.

Education & Experience

Dr. Benedict completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri Columbia, earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Optometry at Indiana University’s School of Optometry. He previously practiced as an optometrist in his hometown of Hannibal, MO, before joining the team at Missouri Eye Consultants.
