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.

Low Vision Aware By Beth Lucas on February 22, 2021

February is Low Vision Awareness Month

Vision is key to quality of life in every person at every age.  

Whether our vision seems perfect now, or even if we already have vision loss, it is never too late to make sure you are maintaining the vision you have to its fullest.

"One of the most rewarding things about being an eye physician and surgeon is seeing patients light up when they restore some lost vision, or know they are preventing their vision from worsening," said Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center Founder & Medical Director Emilio M. Justo, M.D.

"I see many people regain their independence and confidence to drive again, or return to beloved hobbies like reading or painting, that they thought they had lost, or would lose," he said. "We see things we can easily treat such as droopy eyelids that block the peripheral vision and thick cataracts that dim your vision, all the time, and are proud to have a strong success record at treating these conditions and transforming lives."

February is a good time to make sure you schedule at least an annual eye exam, to also ensure that none of the eye conditions known as "silent theives of vision" are sneaking up on us. We often don't as easily see vision conditions such as Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration, until it has progressed well into damaging vision. It is vital to get preventative care and treat these conditions before the progress.

Our Medical Optometrists also treat dry eyediabetic eye, and can help diagnose cataracts.

If you are having any symptoms, such as flashing lights, diminished vision, or a sudden and dramatic increase in  vitreous "floaters," we recommend you see us right away.  We also want to be available for your schedule and can see you for a routine or comprehensive medical eye exam during most work days, the same day, if you call in advance to (623) 876-2020.

Thank you for selecting us to care for your vital vision needs.  Stay safe and well.
