Testimonials

Jeffrey Shotwell

I've been going to Desert Vision for over 12 years.  Dr Esquibel and his staff are fantastic and their frame selection is unsurpassed in the Coachella Valley.  I have a variety of frames for different occasions in different shapes and tints to suit my every mood - some even have a very cool "flash" tint on them.  I love all the options they offer and highly recommend!

Scott Jones

I’ve been going to Desert Vision for over 13 years and you can't beat their service. Dr Esquibel is the best, and Gail and the entire staff go out of their way to always find just the right frames for me. Great prices and an even better selection of frames . I have found they are less expensive then some of the BIG discount eyewear chains with all those "special offers".

On-Site Lab

Using state-of-the-art lab equipment, we are able to edge, polish, and tint lenses under the management of Sergio who has 20+ years of experience.  We also specialize in custom drilling and hand mounting of rimless eyewear such as Silhouette, Mykita, and Cartier.  This allows us to maintain a higher standard of quality than most other optical labs.

On-site tinting, ultraviolet coating, scratch coating and other customized lens treatments can also be done more quickly and cost effectively in our in-office lab with its high-tech equipment.  Our optical staff can be more creative, working with you to customize your order, such as certain shades of tint, mirror coating, etc.

In certain cases, we are able to edge your lenses same day. We are also more than happy to use your existing frame and this is exceptionally convenient for our patients who are unable to leave their frames behind.

We take pride in our work and extremely committed in giving you the best quality product possible.

Sunglasses

Many people are cheered by a bright, sunny day, but the effect of all that sunlight on the eyes is a less sunny proposition. UV and glare can create a variety of issues, from dangerous "snowblindness" to irreversible disorders that threaten your eyesight. Here are some frequently asked questions about the role of sunglasses in protecting the eyes from harm. If you want to know more about choosing the right sunglasses, call Dr. Esquibel at 760-327-8528 today.

Sports Vision

Sports vision testing helps athletes determine how well their eyes perform. These tests go beyond standard eye tests that only evaluate the ability to see letters and objects clearly on a standard eye chart. Sports vision testing takes eyesight evaluation one step further, which is vital to overall athletic training as well as specifically enhancing visual function.

While sports vision testing can vary greatly depending on an athlete’s specific needs, in general, sports vision testing can be beneficial for assessing athletic abilities associated with hand-eye coordination, eye tracking, and depth perception. If you are a local athlete looking to improve your performance, Dr. Esquibel can help.

Computer Vision Treatment

Squinting at computer, tablet, or mobile screens for hours at a time is a normal part of our lives in the 21st century. Unfortunately, eye problems associated with this activity are also on the rise. Even if you have never had eye problems before, you may have noticed computer vision syndrome symptoms after two or more hours of screen time.

Hard to Fit Contacts

Contact lenses are not an easy solution for every person suffering with vision problems. Some eye conditions make wearing contacts a difficult proposition. However, it does not rule out wearing contact lenses altogether. It just means patients need to discuss options with their eye care provider and obtain specialized hard to fit contacts for their specific vision problems.
