Our Optometrists

A Few Words About Us

Iain and Robert Mellis are brothers who grew up in Stockton and after their time at university, both brothers decided to return to the area that they love. In 2012 the opportunity to purchase the North Ormesby and Thornaby practices of E.G.E. Halls Opticians arose and they leapt at the chance. They were well aware of the long and esteemed reputation and history of Halls and knew that this was the perfect launch pad for Mellis Eyecare, an opportunity to build on tradition with a modern approach.

At Mellis Eyecare we believe in:

  • a friendly, welcoming atmosphere
  • a tailor made, comprehensive examination
  • unbiased advice on what spectacles are best
  • exemplary service and aftercare

As well as the basic NHS sight tests we also offer:

  • Advanced eye examinations
  • Emergency eye care appointments
  • Dry eye assessments

The friendly, experienced Optical Assistants, Wendy, Anne and Sharone are continuing their excellent work for Mellis Eyecare.
