Doctor Melman has a special interest in contact lenses and low vision and has been a long time member of the contact lens and low vision sections of the American Optometric Association.

He has served as the President of the West Jersey Optometric Society for many years.

He remains one of the top private practice users of daily disposable and bifocal contact lens designs in the region. Corneal molding with overnight contacts to eliminate the need for correction during the daytime is another specialty lens that we have had good success with in controlling myopia progression. This is often described as orthodontia for the eyes.

In 2012 he caught an epidemic of viral conjunctivitis and wrote the cover article on the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians Journal.
