2018 - Melonie Clemmons, OD

"I was both thrilled and touched to accept the 2018 Energeyes Member of the Year Award-- a complete surprise!  I want to thank Dr. Naheed Ahmad, Energeyes President, and the Energeyes Board of Directors for this honor. The support, encouragement and knowledge I have gained through being a member of Energeyes has proven to be invaluable; I'm consistently challenged to practice full-scope optometry, given the tools to do so and inspired by the enthusiasm from other members.  I'm very proud to be a part of this organization and it's mission.
