Robert A. Hyde, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary at UIC. He is a vitreoretinal surgeon and clinician-scientist with a focus on inherited retinal diseases.

Dr. Hyde received his BS from Yale University, graduating with honors with majors in History and Physics. Following graduation, he worked as research assistant in the clinical genetics laboratory of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, where he developed an interest in the genetic basis of heritable disease. He matriculated to the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where he earned both his MD and PhD degrees. His graduate work focused on the electrophysiological basis of short-term memory, for which he was awarded the Doctoral Excellence Award in Neurosciences. Following an internship in medicine at Summa Akron City Hospital, he completed his ophthalmology residency at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary at UIC. He then completed a fellowship in vitreoretinal surgery followed by a fellowship in retinal dystrophy, both at the Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan. He joined the faculty of the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary at UIC in 2020.

Dr. Hyde’s clinical interests include the diagnosis and management of patients with inherited retinal diseases and vitreoretinal disorders. He has an active interest in preclinical studies and current clinical trials, including gene therapy, for inherited retinal diseases. His research focuses on the development of novel markers of visual function in patients with inherited retinal diseases and he maintains many active collaborations within the research community. Dr. Hyde is board certified in ophthalmology.
