About Us

R. Melander & Associates, based in Plano, TX has been one of the principal distributors of premier ophthalmic and optometric equipment to eye care professionals in the southern United States since 1992.
We are a full line exclusive distributor for technology that includes, Perimeters/Visual Fields, Functional Vision Analyzers, Computerized Visual Acuity Screeners, Corneal Topographers, Auto Refractor/Keratometers, Mydriatic and Non-Mydriatic Digital Imaging Systems, Slit-Lamp Digital Imaging, Comprehensive Eye Scanners .
However, our relationship does not end at the sale. We are proud to provide product installation and education of every piece of equipment we sell. We also pride ourselves on the continued customer followup that allows us to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.


In 1985, Ray Melander, started Triad Medical Southwest, a small business selling medical equipment to a handful of doctors in Texas. As the number of clients grew, so did the business and before long, Ray had a territory covering Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.
In 2001, Ray’s son, Ryan, was ready to join the family business and as the two partnered together, Triad Medical Southwest became R. Melander & Associates.
Since then, R. Melander & Associates has grown to earn the appreciation and respect of eye care professionals all over the southwest, not just by providing premier ophthalmic and optometric equipment but by also building trust through a continuing relationship with all our doctors.
As Ray puts it best, “We don’t just want to sell a piece of equipment, we want to provide service beyond the invoice.” It is this way of thinking that allows R. Melander & Associates to offer unprecedented service and sales to the eye care community.
Today, with annual sales reaching well over two million dollars and a territory covering Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, R. Melander & Associates is ready to continue our tradition of service excellence, not just to our existing client base, but to expand into exciting new markets, as well.
