27 Years With Us!

27 Years a Patient of Dr. Emilio M. Justo

Beverly Pettigrew remembers her first appointment with Dr. Emilio M. Justo 27 years ago—when Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center first opened.

“He was the cream of the crop even at that young age,” she said. “We were so grateful to have such a talented eye physician and surgeon come to the area. Over the years I have appreciated knowing Dr. Justo not only as a talented eye physician—but as a friend."

  Beverly opted for the LenSx femtosecond laser for refractive cataract surgery when it came time, and said the advancements that Dr. Justo brings are unique to his ongoing dedication to the community’s vision and health needs. 

As a high profile real estate agent, Beverly knew that her vision and beauty had to be in the right hands.

“Congratulations to Dr. Justo on his 27th Anniversary. We are all grateful to have his skill and care in our community.”

Live Eyelid Surgeries at the Gala

Once again, we celebrated Anniversary with a Gala that included two live and streamed eyelid surgeries. If you missed one, we want to share their stories with you, below. Stay tuned for Before and After images:


To Drive Again—Saving Independence

 The Story Behind a Live Streamed Eyelid Surgery

    Sherry Potts suffered every day, as her eyelids felt heavier and heavier, slowly stealing her vision and her quality of life.

   “To be able to see, I had to open my eyes real big. People often told me that I looked scared,” she said. “That was my real reason for coming to Dr. Justo for eyelid surgery, to regain my vision. I was thrilled when I learned that my insurance would cover upper eyelid surgery for me.”

   It was important to Sherry that the results look natural. “I do not want to undergo any major cosmetic surgery. I just want to no longer feel like there is something crawling on or pushing down my eyelashes and taking away peripheral vision.”

   “For me, the big thing was to make sure that I could continue to drive. Droopy eyelids mean you have to turn your head almost totally around to see traffic because you no longer can see it out of the corner of your eye.”

   “It was so easy, I felt nothing, and they made me very comfortable,” she told Gala guests as she walked right on to the stage immediately following her procedure.  “I would recommend this to anyone.”

A 'Classic Candidate' For Transformation



Fran Martin first came to Arizona Eye Institute for her new  eyewear at Just for Eyes Optical Boutique.

   “I realized I did not have the best peripheral vision, and had trouble looking up, to see above my eyelids.” A little shy about the idea of something some consider a “cosmetic” surgery, Fran was made comfortable to ask about eyelid surgery at Arizona Eye Institute after one of her friends underway a successful outpatient surgery.

   “They told me—yes, you are a classic candidate! I did not even realize my vision problem until I started testing myself and what I could see.  With my eyelids so droopy, I looked half asleep most of the time.”

   “Before they even started, they got my insurance approved which made the decision even easier.  They made me feel so comfortable from the very start of the process to when you are on the table for surgery. 

   “What I really appreciated was the personal interest they take in you as a person.” Fran came right out to the Gala stage to share her new look with guests. “I already feel relief,” she said. “If you think you may be a candidate, I highly encourage you to book a consultation today.”
