Dr. Quaranta and Dr. Stott are in it long term! You won’t get a new, just-out-of-school doctor who comes and goes as you might in a retail center.
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.
We have all of the equipment and expertise necessary to properly diagnose, monitor, and manage glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, keratoconus, and other sight-threatening diseases.
With our eye-steering Optomap, we can detect and monitor nearly all retinal irregularities and diseases without dilating! The Optomap is painless and has no side effects.
With lens cutting technology and a generous stock of single vision anti-reflective light-weight lenses, we can control the precision of our eyeglasses and get same day eyeglasses if necessary.
While it is ultimately your responsibility to understand your vision and medical benefits, our doctors and staff will take the time necessary to discuss when extra testing may be necessary for your ocular health.
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
Optical Products and Services
We have eyeglasses for everyone. Whether you want the highest quality brand name products, or high quality value products (with better prices and quality in most cases than Costco, America’s Best, or online), we have it for you!
We strive to provide the highest quality products available on the market. Our frame selection is constantly being rotated to remain up-to-date with current styles. We also provide high quality lens coatings, such as our anti-reflective coatings with a two-year warranty against scratches. If you have a problem, we listen, we investigate it, and we do our best to solve the problem.
We have unique eyeglass lens designs, such as the Sync Lens for computer users and the Workspace for older office workers.
We provide discounts and rebates on contact lenses, striving to make them affordable.
We were one of the first and only offices in the east valley to start fitting scleral contact lenses for advanced corneal disease, and technology has vastly improved since then! Very few practices fit scleral contact lenses. Our scleral lens designs have enabled hundreds of visually disabled patients to live normal lives!
We can now fit toric multifocal soft contact lenses for older patients with advanced astigmatism. Very few offices can provide this service.
We fit soft contact lenses, corneal reshaping therapy, and low-dose atropine options for myopia control in children, according to the latest research and studies.
We provide services that are difficult for many other practices to provide. These include:
- Specialty contact lenses for keratoconus, post-corneal transplant, or other corneal irregularities.
- Contact lenses for very high astigmatism, multifocal contact lenses, dailies contact lenses, and corneal refractive therapy.
- Pachymetry and Gonioscopy for proper glaucoma risk assessment
- Betadine treatment for rapid pink eye relief
- Dry Eye treatments including punctal occlusion and eyelid care
- Lacrimal irrigation for excess watery eye
- Post-op cataract and LASIK care
- Internal/external eye photography for proper pathology monitoring.
- Optical coherence tomography for detection of diabetic macular edema, choroidal neovascularization, and retinal nerve damage from glaucoma.
Our philosophy is to 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.
“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.
Our goal is not to sell glasses, but to solve problems. And we often come up with creative, unique solutions, to solve those problems in a way that no one else might take the time to do.
