We care for your eyes, whether treating a red eye, monitoring diabetic eye complications, or maximizing your vision. Contact lenses can usually be tried on your first visit so you can try them before you leave. Our in-house optical lab allows us to customize your eyeglass needs as well. 


Before, during, and after your next eye exam, our friendly eye care team will ensure that your visit is a pleasant and comfortable one. Our comprehensive eye care program is an important part of your preventive health care. Because many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms it is important that you schedule an eye exam on a regular basis. Dr. Melman’s Eyeland in Voorhees, NJ is focused on serving you.
