Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
Melissa B. Daluvoy, MD
I am a clinician dedicated to helping children and adults preserve and restore their vision. I perform a wide variety of procedures including cataract surgery, cornea transplants and Lasik surgery. I also see a large number of patients with ocular surface disease, ranging from dry eye to limbal stem cell disease. At Duke, we are able to offer new technologies and unique surgeries for these conditions. I truly love what I do and the relationships I build with my patients. When I am not busy at work, I am home spending time with my two children or trying to sneak in a long run.
Clinical Focus and Research
My research interests include the treatment of complex ocular surface diseases such as dry eye, graft vs. host disease, ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, and limbal stem disease. The cornea and the tear film that cover it are of utmost importance in having clear sharp vision it is my goal to find effective treatments that work for common dry eye problems as well as develop surgical options for complex cornea problems from disease or trauma. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to give someone their sight back or help someone enjoy life again because their eyes are more comfortable.
