Why Choose Sonoran Desert Eye Center?

Dr. Quaranta has been in eye care since 1983 and a doctor since 1996.

Doctor Quaranta has 18 years of clinical experience practicing in a multi-specialty practice with ophthalmology surgeons. Therefore he has the skills, knowledge, and experience to deal with some of the most difficult eye care problems. Experience makes a huge difference in making correct eye care decisions.

We constantly work on providing the best service, increasing quality, increasing convenience to patients, and keeping our prices and fees as affordable as we can.  Our mission statement is to provide the finest in eye care and eye wear in the friendliest manner possible.

We are accessible from long distances.  We are conveniently located along the San Tan Freeway in Chandler, AZ and Gilbert, AZ.  We have many patients that travel to see us from Maricopa, Casa Grande, San Tan Valley, West Phoenix, Ahwatukee, East Mesa and Globe.

Dr. Quaranta owns the practice so he has a vested interest in making you happy and you won't get a different doctor year after year.

We provide discounts and rebates on contact lenses, striving to make them more affordable than anywhere else!

"Good enough" isn't good enough to us.  Accuracy and precision is very important to us.  If there's a defect in our work and you don't notice it, we fix it anyway.  If we can do better, even if you think it's "good enough", we'll let you know and do our best to fix it.   If we can enhance your satisfaction with the exam, the process, our service, and the quality of workmanship, we'll do it.  If we can't, we'll be honest and let you know.

We have all the necessary equipment to diagnose and manage your eye condition, including optical coherence tomography, pachymetry, eye photography (including Optomap), and automated perimetry to manage to properly diagnose and manage glaucoma and other eye diseases.

We can utilize the Optomap, which allows us to see inside the eye without having to dilate the eyes in most cases.  The Optomap also allows us to see more of the retina at one time, isolate layers of the retina using filters, and perform autofluorescence which allows us to see hidden damage not discoverable during dilated eye exams.  The Optomap is painless and has no side effects. 

While it is ultimately your responsibility to understand your vision benefits, our staff will take the time necessary to help you.

Dr. Quaranta strives to stay up to date with the latest eye care treatments and advancements. 

Dr. Quaranta has extensive experience managing diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, macular degeneration, and refractive surgery.

We strive to provide the highest quality products available on the market.  For example, our high quality anti-reflective coatings have a two year guarantee against scratches.  If you have a problem, we listen, we investigate it, and we do our best to solve the problem. 

We utilize a patient management system that secures your record, can be accessed securely from any computer, and minimizes mistakes in prescribing and ordering.  You can even access part of your record  and make appointments through the patient portal

We provide services that are difficult for many other practices to provide.  These include scleral contact lenses for keratoconus and post-corneal transplant, contact lenses for very high astigmatism, multifocal contact lenses, dailies contact lenses,  corneal refractive therapy, pachymetry for proper glaucoma risk assessment, betadine treatment for rapid pink eye relief, punctal occlusion for dry eye, lacrimal irrigation for excess watery eye, post-op cataract and LASIK care, proper technique for retinal break detection, and internal/external eye photography for proper pathology monitoring.
