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.

Our professional staff at Hyde Eye Care in Morristown, TN realizes that vision is your most precious sense. With help from our state-of-the-art equipment, and our knowledgeable optometrist and ophthalmologist, we want to help you maintain your vision health.
Our Morristown optometrist offers comprehensive eye exams for the entire family. During these comprehensive eye exams, we assess the health of your eyes and our eye doctors can determine if you need glasses or an updated glasses prescription. We also screen for cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and hundreds of other eye diseases. If you are diagnosed with an eye disease, we understand that you want the best treatment available. Our doctors have many years of experience and are equipped to battle eye diseases in people of all ages.
Our Morristown optometrist will ask if you have been experiencing any symptoms or issues with your eyes. Symptoms might include:
Our optometrist will also need to know if you are taking any medications, what your work environment is like, and how you are doing with your overall health. We will also discuss your family health history, and if you have had any previous eye or vision conditions. Our optometrist will use all of this information when prescribing treatments or providing recommendations.
Vision Testing - In order to help you have the clearest vision possible, our Morristown optometrist provides regular vision acuity testing. By using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart, we can measure how well each eye is seeing. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, our optometrist may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.
Eye Function Testing- Another part of our comprehensive eye exams in Morristown involves testing the eye functionality. Several tests are performed to evaluate the following:
Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist will examine the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. The health of the eye is evaluated by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, your pupils may have to be dilated. Increased eye pressure can indicate glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. If after completing these tests it is determined you need further diagnosis or treatment, we have an ophthalmologist on staff that will be able to help.
The Optometrists & Ophthalmologists along with staff at Hyde Eyecare in Morristown, TN, specialize in the preservation of your vision. We have the most advanced testing and diagnosis equipment available. Whether it is cataracts, eye infection, eye injury, allergies, or simply a preventative eye exam, you can trust the treatment of your eye condition to the doctors at Hyde Eyecare.
