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

Three to five children out of every classroom have vision problems that can affect learning, reading, and overall school performance. Most of the time parents, teachers, doctors, and especially the children have no idea they are seeing any different than anyone else. Children think they are normal and what they see in normal. So many of these children suffer needlessly and do not reach their potential.
We need your help. We know that not only parents, but teachers, pediatricians, school nurses, counselors, and administrators know when a child is struggling and reach out to help. We are here to give you tools to know when it may be a vision problem and where to go to get answers.
Our eye physicians often go to different groups to conduct workshops to train educators and professionals how to assess, test for and distinguish visual conditions that keep children from doing well in school. In this hands-on workshop you’ll have the opportunity to practice tests on other participants and ask questions.
Every parent wants their child to be successful in school. But vision problems that keep them from attaining their highest level of success. Four out of five classroom hours involve doing near vision work less than an arm’s length from a child’s eyes. Many children and adults cannot handle such intense, prolonged near vision work.
In our free one-hour workshops, Hyde Eye Care physicians can help you identify common vision problems that impact reading proficiency and school performance.
For more information, feel free to contact us at 423-581-2020 and ask for Dr. Dabbs.
