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.

When It's Time for Eyelid Surgery

Emilio Justo Feb 13, 2015

When is it time for Eyelid Surgery?

As more people learn the important fact that upper Eyelid Surgery is oftened covered by their insurance, there is another question that is often coming up.

Am I a good candidate?

Is it time yet, to consider eyelid surgery?

The best way to know for sure is to come on in for a consultation. My staff will also help determine insurance coverage.

But that said, there are some easy ways to determine whether or not you should come in and create a plan just for your individual needs.

First, be assured that drooping eyelids are extremely common. So if you are even asking the question, then chances are you should come in for a consultation and let us help you improve your quality of life.

Here are some good rules of thumb if you do need extra reassurance that it is time for an exam:

  • Do your eyelids droop, and cause you to look tired?
  • Do you notice a change in your vision, or ability to see, particularly your peripheral vision? Sometimes you may lose it gradually.
  • Do your eyelids touch your eyelashes?
  • Do you ever feel as though you have to hold up your eyelid in order to see better, or feel more comfortable?
  • Do you no longer wear the makeup you used to?
  • And lastly, do you no longer see your original eyelid contour, because your eyelid skin is drooping?  

I am committed to helping to improve our community's quality of life by educating and empowering about the accessibility of this surgery that is often covered by insurance and which dramatically improves quality of life.

I look forward to seeing you soon, and learning how we can help you. You can schedule a consultation directly from this email, just click here.  

- Emilio M. Justo, M.D., Founder and Medical Director
