Dr. Melanie Carvell

Dr Melanie Carvell grew up in southwest FL, leaving to attend Duke University in North Carolina. After graduating with honors with a Bachelor of Science in biology, she then went to the University of Houston College of Optometry. While at UHCO, Dr Carvell served on the college’s academic committee, was a member of the Optometric Honor Society and received the award for the outstanding fourth year contact lens clinician. Upon graduating with honors, she moved to central Texas and ran the optometry clinic at two Primus clinics at Fort Hood, serving military dependants and retirees.

Dr Carvell has called Jacksonville home since 1990, when she joined the practice of Dr. Blair Roberts. They practiced together until 2007, when she became the sole owner of the 45 year old practice. It is the family care aspect of this well established practice that Dr Carvell treasures above all else. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages and providing the best eye care possible. She specializes in primary care and contact lens fitting.

Dr Carvell is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Florida Optometric Association and the Northeast Optometric Association.

When not in the office, she enjoys reading, cooking and most of all, spending time with her family.
