A cataract is a clouding of the naturally clear lens of the eye. This condition is commonly caused by aging, but can also be brought on by diabetes, injury, or certain medications. Dr. Emilio Justo can diagnose cataracts in their earliest stages and recommend an appropriate treatment.
Dr. Justo prides himself on providing patients with advanced surgical care. The techniques used at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center include phacoemulsification surgery, which involves the use of an ultrasound to break up the clouded lens before it is removed from the eye.
We will educate you on what to expect before, during, and after your cataract surgery so that you can make informed decisions. Additionally, we provide our patients with explicit care instructions throughout their recovery to help ensure the best results.
We offer a full line of premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) to restore vision after cataract surgery. Traditionally, IOLs have been monofocal. Today there are multifocal lenses, which allow patients to enjoy improved vision both near and far. There are even lenses that can correct for astigmatism.
