Life-Changing Cataract Surgery
Cataracts cause blurry and distorted vision and eventually lead to 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 is 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 patients 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.
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.
"The Choice Was Clear to Me." Hear From a Real Patient
Expert Eyelid Surgery Improve Your Vision and Appearance
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Drooping eyelids can make you look aged beyond your years, and they can interfere with your vision. Individuals from across Arizona, and from all over the world, have trusted Dr. Emilio Justo to perform eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) safely and successfully. We use advanced laser technology to effectively address eyelid issues, producing beautiful and lasting results.
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.

Is It Time for an Eye Exam? We Can't Wait to Work With You
Routine eye exams are critical for maintaining good ocular health. During eye exams, our eye doctor and optometrists screen for eye diseases and eye conditions that can cause blurry vision and get progressively worse without treatment.
If it has been a while since your last professional eye exam, we encourage you to schedule one with the experienced optometrists at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center. People throughout the greater Phoenix area can undergo an eye exam at any of our locations in Sun City, Sun City West, or Wickenburg, AZ.
