The Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is Open

We are still open at our regular office hours at each of our three locations. Our Medical Director & Founder, Emilio M. Justo, M.D., is seeing surgical consultations. Dr. Mark Yates and Dr. Manuel Zambrano will continue to see our postoperative patients as well as any urgent and emergency patients, along with medically necessary eye exams throughout this time.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR IMPENDING APPOINTMENTS:

As always during the cold and flu season that we are now in, we ask that you reschedule any appointment if you feel ill, have experienced a fever within the last 24 hours or are concerned that you may have been exposed to someone with these symptoms. We will be asking screening questions as patients arrive.

If you have an urgent eye problem and feel you need to be seen promptly, our office is here for you, but we ask that you call us at (623) 975-2020 to schedule a same day appointment rather than walk in.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order mandating the temporary halt of all elective surgeries and all surgeries not considered life saving, in order to divert supplies to emergency and life saving medical needs. If your surgery must be rescheduled, one of our team members will reach out to you.

Our service to you is very important to us, so in response to this mandate, we have implemented changes to our schedule aimed at upholding high safety standards while still providing needed care.

To maintain a safe atmosphere for patients and our staff, we have significantly reduced the number of patients who will be in our offices at any one time. We respectfully request that any friend or family members wait in the car during the time that the patient is inside the office. The patient may also wait in the car until the doctor is ready, at which time we can call or text you in your car.

If you would like to try on eyeglasses, please ask one of our opticians to hand you the frames you are interested in, to ensure all frames are kept clean for you.

It is important that you know we are monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and will follow our usual OSHA guidelines for infection control. We are closely following the Center for Disease Control's recommendations as we learn more about the Coronavirus. We have increased our strong disinfection protocol and maintaining deep cleaning standards.

You are like family to us, and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.

Our History

A Beautiful Vision: The Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center

Emilio M. Justo, M.D. is the Founder and Medical Director of a unique institute that today offers the top of the line technology for the most pressing vision and cosmetic needs.

Dr. Justo first opened the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center 30 years ago. Today, he performs bladeless refractive cataract surgery using the LenSx femtosecond laser - which offers the growing number of patients with cataracts a safer and more comfortable option. He is proud to be one of a few surgeons in Arizona who use the newest laser technology.

Upper eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is also performed by Dr. Justo. Arizona Eye Institute staff works hard to help patients whose insurance often covers the medically-necessary upper lid outpatient surgery performed under local anesthesia. While the procedure regains a patient's natural eyelid structure, the surgery also can significantly improve the patient’s peripheral (side) vision and help decrease heaviness and eye fatigue.

The institute offers everything from annual eye exams and eyewear, to more serious vision care. Dr. Justo's Nursing Director is also a Certified Aesthetic Laser Nurse who also provides a variety of aesthetic services including Botox and Dysport, soft-tissue fillers, microdermabrasion, sclerotherapy for spider veins, and Obagi skin care peels and products. Permanent make up is also a popular option at the institute performed by a Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional.

The History

Dr. Emilio Justo reflects on how the history of his practice led to its current success. Dr. Justo has practiced ophthalmology out of the Sun Cities since 1989 and provides an incredibly wide range of procedures and serves a highly diverse clientele. Dr. Justo's injectable treatments are a great addition to other cosmetic surgeries or ophthalmic treatments.

Inspiring story

Dr. Justo's story begins with birthplace near Havana, Cuba. His parents wanted a better life for their son, and were fortunate to flee Fidel Castro's communist Cuba when he was only 3 years old.

The young man did not take the new opportunity before him for granted. Relocated to Indiana, and at times raised by grandparents, he watched as his father worked two jobs and his mother study at Indiana University. Dr. Justo  worked as hard as his parents, and at only 17, he graduated Valedictorian of his high school. At only 23, he graduated from the prestigious Integrated Pre-medical/Medical Program at University of Michigan, with both his B.S. and M.D. degrees.

At 28 he moved to Arizona and joined an established ophthalmologist in Sun City. Just months later, the ophthalmologist suffered serious health issues, and Dr. Justo took over the practice. It would grow and expand to the three locations today in Wickenburg, Sun City and Sun City West - drawing patients from all over Arizona, as well as nationally and even internationally.

Time with patients

During those 30 years, Dr. Justo has made it a priority to provide each patient he sees with individualized care and time. "Over the years, many people have asked me my secret for creating beautiful results and achieving excellent vision for my patients. The answer is simple.. I listen carefully and attentively. I listen to all of your desires and expectations. By doing so, I bond with each patient.”

"The best part of our work is seeing the outstanding positive benefits that either visual rehabilitation through modern cataract surgery may achieve, or the increased self- confidence and esteem from facial or body cosmetic surgery or services."
