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

The eye physicians and optical staff of Hyde Eye Care are dedicated to providing our patients with premier service and quality in every facet of their experience. That's why we have invested in a state-of-the-art optical laboratory, located inside our Morristown practice. Accordingly, our laboratory craftsmen will custom manufacture your eyeglasses, unless your vision benefit plan dictates that we use their own laboratory.
1) Quality Control = Accurate Prescription
We complete the entire process of an eyeglass purchase. From our opticians assisting with frame and lens selection, to our lab technicians fabricating your eyewear, we insure that your lenses are 100% accurate to the doctor's prescription, that the lenses correctly match your frame, and that the lenses chosen meet/exceed our doctor's high standards.
2) Reduced Manufacturing Time = Greater Convenience
We stock thousands of lenses in our on-site laboratory, so we often begin fabricating your new eyeglasses the same day! When eyeglass emergencies occur, we're able to get our patients replacement glasses in a matter of hours, not weeks. This includes bifocals and progressive multifocals.
3) New Lenses Only = Cost Savings & Convenience
Often, eyeglass frames outlast the life of your prescription or your lenses. If you want to put a new prescription in your current frame, most optical shops require you to leave your frame so it can be mailed to their outside laboratory. At Hyde Eye Care, you keep your glasses while we make your new lenses, and then schedule an appointment with our lab technicians to insert your new prescription while you wait! That way, you have the choice of avoiding the cost of new frames, or that you don't have to be without your glasses for weeks.
Our on-site laboratory is equipped with the latest in technology, innovation and automation. We're able to manufacture virtually any lens, any prescription. The process usually consists of two distinct elements.
Our technician begins with a semi-finished lens blank and uses the computer to calculate the proper curvature required on the back surface, places the lens blank in the generator (pictured above) to grind the curves, then uses a cylinder machine to fine and polish the lens.
2) Shaping the lens to fit the Frame and Polishing the Lens
Once the exact prescription is ground into the lens blanks, our technician will use the frame tracer to precisely measure the size and shape of the frame eyewire, transfer the data electronically to the edger (pictured right) which will cut the lenses to the exact size and shape to fit perfectly in your frame
