Generations of Expertise.

We opened Melville Optical in 1975 with the goal of providing our community with the highest standard of vision care and correction. Over four decades later, we are proud to have our third generation of De Souza optometrists providing that same exceptional level of service.

Not only are the De Souza’s generational, but so are our patients.

For generations, families have been frequenting Melville Optical; we now care for the grandchildren of our very first patients. That speaks to the fact that Melville Optical is a part of the community, an independent neighbourhood clinic that is here to stay.

Our mission is to deliver “lifetime vision.” We build long term relationships with our patients through informative and comprehensive care combined with quality optical products.

We value each and every person that is under our care.

We continue to carry that mantra.

Our team works hard to deeply understand your vision-health history and as an important part of your healthcare plan, our consistent, personalised care can make all the difference.

Feel Inspired.

We understand how eyewear should feel and how it should inspire you to express your unique style. That is why we pride ourselves on sourcing unique, quality frames from around the world.

As a truly independent practice, we have the freedom to seek out brands from manufacturers that share our philosophy on quality, design and the desire to provide opportunities to celebrate individuality.

Our brands are destined to become a timeless part of your wardrobe – come in and be inspired!


When a lens is more than a lens.

We know that lenses are just as important as frames. That is why we use lens labs in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne who understand that an individual’s lens needs are as specific as their frames.

From blue light protection to individualised digitally surfaced progressives, the lenses we use are cut and fitted by the best in Australia.

We also know that sometimes contact lenses can be the perfect solution when your glasses won’t do. We have extensive experience in contact lens assessment and are excited to fit the best lenses for you and your needs.

We use only the best lenses on the market, lenses that will keep your vision clear.


Our Services.

Regular eye exams are just as important as consistent dental and health checks. Routine visits help us protect, treat and detect issues before they start to become a problem.
