Recently, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an Executive Order that lifted the state-wide mandate for masks. The order asked businesses to continue to follow CDC guidelines to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  While we respect everyone’s personal choices surrounding this matter, the nature of our work with our patients require that we work in close proximity of each other and therefore we believe it is in the best interest of our business to continue wearing masks until further notice.  We will revisit this policy once we have more time and information to evaluate the impact the executive order has on our industry and community.  In the meantime, we respectfully ask that while you are providing us the privilege of caring for you and your loved ones, that you please respect our mask policy. Masks are required on every individual in the building, covering the mouth and nose. 
We understand that this has been a trying time for all involved, and we are all ready to get back to normal as soon as possible. We are working hard to create processes that will allow us to do so shortly. We are confident that within a short time, if we can all work together, we will return to normal. We are very excited to see your smiling faces again, soon.

Welcome Dr. Shifrin By Emilio Justo on May 10, 2016


Dr. Eugene Shifrin

Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is proud to introduce Eugene Shifrin, O.D., as our Director of Optometry.

Dr. Shifrin brings more than a decade experience to the 27-year practice.

In his role, Dr. Shifrin will co-manage patients with  Founder & Medical Director Emilio M. Justo, M.D.

"We are thrilled at the advantages having Dr. Shifrin on staff will provide to our patient-centered practice," Dr. Justo said. "Dr. Shifrin has proven his experience in serving a wide range of patients and vision needs, and will play a vital role in the pre- and post-operative care of patients. He fits in well given his commitment to providing every patient with the best possible care at every step."

Dr. Shifrin says the key to his success has been a phrase that has inspired him throughout his career:

"Treat your patients the way you want to be treated."

"To me, the meaning of that phrase goes far beyond a successful diagnosis and treatment," Shifrin explained. "It encompasses our ability to listen, relate and understand. I continuously strive to create a team oriented approach to patient ophthalmic needs. I aim for my patients to clearly understand their condition prior to leaving our office. I firmly believe that a trusting relationship is a cornerstone to a successful patient-doctor team."

Dr. Shifrin earned his Doctorate in Optometry with honors from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, and earned residency experience at the Brandywine Eye Center in Pennsylvania. Dr. Shifrin is a member of the American Optometric Association, Arizona Optometric Association and the National Glaucoma Society. He graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Biology.

Dr. Shifrin will join the Arizona Eye Institute team at our three Valley locations. We look forward to introducing him to you at your next appointment.
