Could Blepharoplasty Help You?

Sagging eyelids are an incredibly common concern as we grow older. But 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 patients whose sight has been affected. In these cases, your insurance might even cover part or all of the treatment.

Frequently Requested Treatments

Cataracts cause blurry and foggy vision, and in extreme cases can lead to blindness. Dr. Justo has over 30 years of experience with cataract surgery. An eye surgeon can remove the damaged lens and replace it with an advanced implant, leading to significantly improved vision.

Pod DescriptionDrooping eyelids can be unsightly, and they can interfere with your vision. The team of surgeons at the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center uses advanced technology to safely and effectively address eyelid issues, producing beautiful results.

IOLs are the artificial lenses used to replace your natural lens during cataract surgery. They can also be used for refractive lens exchanges. Our practice offers some of the most advanced IOLs available in the United States.

We offer several non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including injectable treatments, permanent makeup, Latisse®, lip augmentation, therapy for spider veins, laser hair removal, and several skin care treatments.
