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. Our practice incorporates the most advanced technology into all of our procedures to ensure that our patients achieve optimal visual outcomes. If you suffer from poor vision, seek help today.
Helping You Understand Cataracts
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. For the majority of cataract patients, we recommend fast-focus cataract surgery, which is a suture-free option that enables quick recovery. A comprehensive consultation will help determine which surgical option is best for you.
At our practice, we strive to make your entire experience as comfortable as possible. 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. Rest assured, Dr. Justo will be with you every step of the way, from your initial consultation through your follow-up appointments.
We offer patients a full line of premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) to restore vision after cataract surgery. Traditionally, IOLs have been monofocal, meaning they provided patients the ability to see clearly for distance or reading, but not both. 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. Whatever your needs are, we can help.
