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.

Keeping an Eye on Your Vision

Emilio Justo Jan 4, 2013

 

Happy New Year to you!  It is my sincere hope that you had a fantastic holiday season.  As we dive into 2013, January kicks off National Eye Care Month.  This month was dedicated by eye care professionals around the country to promote healthy vision.  As an ophthalmologist, I strongly suggest that you get your eyes checked every year.  You may have perfect vision or you may wear corrective lenses, but regardless of your current eye situation, regular exams are an essential part of your overall health care and ensure that you will maintain healthy vision for years to come.
 
Imagine your life without your vision.  It's a scary prospect and one that can likely be prevented with routine eye care.  At the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, Dr. Anna Clark and I offer routine exams as well as medical eye care to help treat and prevent numerous eye conditions that can seriously affect your vision.   In honor of National Eye Care month, I am asking that you take a few moments to pick up the phone and schedule your annual eye exam for you and your entire family by calling our office at 623-975-2020.  
 
Some of the most common eye complaints are dry eyes, floaters, and presbyopia, which is the loss of the ability to see close objects and small print, which is easily corrected with reading glasses.  While Dr. Clark and I definitely want to see you for the above issues, we are more concerned with serious diseases and disorders like cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal diseases such as macular degeneration and others.  The worst thing you can do for yourself is let any of these conditions go untreated.  So please, use this month to take the initiative to ensure healthy eyes for you in 2013.
 
If you are interested in doing more for National Eye Care Month, the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is currently taking donations for the Lions Club.  Any old glasses donated by patients or the community will be given to the Lions Club and in turn distributed to those in need who cannot afford their own eyewear.  
 
Regardless of how you choose to celebrate National Eye care Month, the importance of eye health in your life should not be ignored.  Please make sure that you and your family's eye care needs are a top priority.
Wishing you and yours a year of health and happiness,
 
Wishing you and yours a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Emilio, M. Justo, M.D.
