"What a Great Experience." 5-Star Review

What a great experience at the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center!  First, the reception area was amazing, I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door.  The staff was both friendly and welcoming!  I had scheduled an appointment with Dr. Emilio Justo to see if surgery could help with my eyelids.  I had a birthday coming up and I was hoping to look my best before I made a trip back east to see my family!  I completed all the initial tests and then met with Dr. Justo.  He explained the entire process and answered all my questions.  Needless to say, everything went even better than I could have imagined!  My eyes look great!!  Thanks to Dr. Justo, I am very pleased and highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their appearance!

I have been hearing for the past few years from my friends about how amazing Dr. Justo is with eyelid surgery, and cataract surgery. Their results are unbelievable, they look so young, and are more confident driving at night. So when it came time for me to "go under the knife," I looked him up and gave him a call.  The best part of it was, there was no knife at all!  Dr. Justo offers laser surgeries!  He not only took all the time in the world to answer my questions, but I feel like I got the most advanced technology and most loving care possible.  Thank you Dr. Justo and his team!

"Never Looked Better"

"My skin has never looked better thanks to Dr. Justo who performed eyelid surgery on me. I continue to see Dr. Justo because he is unique as both a talented ophthalmologist and a cosmetic surgeon. I look and see beautifully! I highly recommend."
Donna Cahill, 5-Star Google Review - 2019

Life-Changing Cataract Surgery

Cataracts cause blurry and distorted vision, and eventually cause blindness. As an ophthalmologist, Dr. Emilio Justo has over 30 years of experience performing cataract surgery. He has undergone in-depth training and incorporates advanced technology to ensure the safest, most effective procedure possible.

Dr. Justo has become one of the most recommended ophthalmologists for cataract surgery in the greater Phoenix, AZ, area. His customized and technology-focused approach to eye surgery helps people achieve the most accurate, precise and life-changing results more quickly than traditional methods.

During cataract surgery, our ophthalmologist will remove the damaged lens of your eye and replace it with an advanced intraocular lens, leading to significantly improved vision.

Advanced IOLs

Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are the artificial lenses used to replace your natural lens during cataract surgery. They can also be used for refractive lens exchanges. Our ophthalmology practice offers some of the most sophisticated IOLs available.

Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is proud to be one of the first eye care practices in the United States to offer the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix Trifocal Intraocular Lens. Approved by the FDA in August of 2019, this groundbreaking lens can improve your vision to such an extent that you no longer require corrective lenses. It can restore your close, intermediate, and far vision, and it is designed to allow you to focus on mobile devices and computer screens.

We also offer several other types of IOLs. Our premium lens options include the AcrySof IQ IOL and AcrySof Toric.

"The Choice Was Clear to Me."

In this cataract surgery testimonial, Michael Harlan explains that cataracts made it difficult to see clearly in low-light situations. Following his cataract surgery by Dr. Emilio Justo, he was able to achieve 20/20 vision. Mr. Harlan is now able to see the world more clearly, and feels cataract surgery by Dr. Justo was the best decision of his life.

Could Blepharoplasty Help You?

Sagging eyelids are an incredibly common concern as we grow older. However, many people find workarounds or do not realize how severe the condition has become until it affects their everyday life. Although eyelid surgery can be performed for cosmetic concerns, it is especially powerful for individuals whose sight has been affected. In these cases, your insurance might contribute to the cost of treatment.

I had a wonderful experience at Arizona Eye Institute for my last eye exam. All of the staff were professional, efficient, and friendly. Dr. Justo was extremely personable and took the necessary time to discuss the health of my eyes. I never felt rushed. You can tell he truly enjoys working with each patient, which makes for a pleasant and stress-free experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Justo and this practice.

I was at the Arizona Eye institute for an eye examination with Dr. Justo and had the most thorough examination I have ever had.  I really appreciated that he listened to my concerns.  The front office was very friendly when I came in and I felt very comfortable with Sheryl as she tested my eyes and asked about my history.  I even found the cutest pair of glasses to replace my current glasses that are scratched.  Thank you for a great experience.
