Welcome! We have provided vision and eye health care to Southwest Missouri, Southeast Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana since 2004. Thank you for entrusting your eye health care to Dr. Derek Melton! 

As of April 15,2021, we have recommenced independent practice based patient care at 200 West Park Mall, Cape Girardeau, Missouri 63703. Dr. Melton and staff have transitioned his office from 100% contract based care back to vision care and look forward to serving their patients in an important, and more direct way.

Please see Dr. Derek Melton, and the associated staff of Melton Eye Care Associates at one of our eye care locations in Missouri, Kentucky or Indiana, if you have need of eye/vision care or guidance in eye disease management or treatment.

CDC has announced that the fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask, except where required by local law and/or mandates. 

As of May 27,2021, at Melton Eye Care Clinic locations, we will still maintain a 'mask wear' policy for our optometric physician(s) and clinical associates for many reasons and ask that our clinical teams continue N-95/surgical masks and clinical precautions as usual and customary aspects of our patient care/contact protocols.

Our great hope, is that with current vaccine and medication protocols, Covid-19 will be just another nuisance eventually and not a deadly threat to our elderly population.
