Dr. Melnyk has been instrumental in the opening of the new ophthalmology clinic at the CarePoint East Medical Center.  He has been actively encouraging collaborations with the Departments of Endocrinology, Family Medicine, and General Internal Medicine. 

By covering the Ophthalomolgy referrals from the OSU East emergency department, Dr. Melnyk has helped the ophthalmology residents and fellows. He also trains Optometry students as an Attending in the Primary Care Clinic at the OSU College of Optometry Clinic, one day per week and coordinated the Opthalmology/Optometry service at the CarePoint East Community Day this past year.

Dr. Melnyk is increasing the visability of the opthalmology clinic with the other departments. He plans to increase the patient numbers and effective in-house treatments, and referrals to the Havener Eye Institute for those patient that need surgical, implantation or injection treatments. Those efforts will certainly be enhanced by the planned build-out of the clinic in a permanent space containing the full spectrum of imaging equipment.
