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

Eyelid Growths or Lid Skin Tags are quite common benign growths that can appear virtually anywhere on the body. They are more common, though, in areas that are subject to rubbing of the skin, and sun exposure areas. They are easily diagnosed based on their appearance.
These fleshy growths tend to increase in number as we grow older, and more than 50 percent of us will have at least one in our lifetime. Interestingly, pregnancy may predispose women to these skin lesions because of hormonal shifts.
Removal of skin tags is relatively simple, though bleeding can sometimes occur. Methods of removal include freezing and electrical destruction, as well as excision with a scalpel for larger skin tags or those with broader bases.
