Dear Hyde Eyecare Patients,
In these uncertain times, we wanted to reach out to you personally about what we are doing here at Hyde Eyecare to support you and our employees. As the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we are doing everything we can to ensure your Health is our top priority as it has always been, the safety and security of our patients and employees remains our highest priority. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities (including the WHO and CDC) to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous:
• Our team members are receiving ongoing briefings and enhanced operating protocols.
• We have increased the frequency of cleaning & sterilizing our public areas (including exam rooms, optical gallery, lobbies, elevators, private offices, door handles, bathrooms, etc.) and have continued to use hospital-grade disinfectant.
• We have increased the deployment of antibacterial hand sanitizers and wipes. We remain committed to offering you the best eye care possible. We will be flexible if your appointment needs to be rescheduled and will always be here if an eye emergency arises.
At Hyde Eyecare, we believe it is in challenging times like these that the power of good “sight” is needed most of all. We remain committed to serving you and our community for many years to come.
President & CEO, Hyde Eyecare

You might not realize just how important your vision is until you experience a problem. However, our optometrist at Hyde Eye Care in Morristown realizes just how important your vision is all the time. For that reason, our optometry experts strive to provide comprehensive eye exams to correct your vision and detect eye problems early.
The American Optometric Association (AOA) advises adults who wear contacts or glasses to visit an optometrist once per year. Additionally, adults who are over the age of 61 should see the eye doctor once a year for an exam. Adults between the ages of 18 and 60 who don't wear contacts or glasses should visit the optometrist every two years.
During a standard eye examination, an optometrist in Morristown will evaluate your vision to examine how well you see at various distances. The eye doctor will test the sharpness and clarity of your vision. Your peripheral and central vision will be tested as well. The optometrist will test for refractive errors by showing you images through a lens and asking you which one appears clearer. These tests allow the eye doctor to determine your contact lens or glasses prescription. You may also opt for a glaucoma test.
You won't experience pain during any of the tests.
It doesn't hurt to bring your current prescription, so the doctor can note any changes in your vision and have a baseline of where to begin the testing. During your first visit with us, you'll have to fill out your medical history. Make sure you bring a list of any of the medications you currently take if you don't know them.
You may receive your corrective eyewear the same day as your appointment in many cases. However, if you have a less common prescription, we may need to order it. We can send them to your home, or you can pick them up at our office when they're available.
During your vision examination, we will evaluate you to see if you have cataracts, which is a condition that causes the lens of the eye to become clouded.
Our optometrist does treat pediatric patients. We screen for nearsightedness in particular in an effort to correct the problem early.
We do offer special contacts designed for people who have astigmatism, a refractive error that causes blurry vision up close and at a distance.
