MASKS REQUIRED AT ALL OFFICES


Our current mask policy reflects our ongoing efforts to support the healthiest possible environment for every patient and team member, while following closely the guidance from health officials. Masks are at this time required by all patients, visitors and staff inside our practice.  You can have confidence that our team members are taking every effort to maintain the health and safety of our practice at this time, including sterilizing each room between each use. We thank you for your understanding as we strive to focus on the best in care as we treat a diverse group of patients including those considered to be at higher risk.  We will get through this together.

How Will My Vision be Different?

Having realistic expectations is the most important step  toward enjoying your results after surgery. Dr. Justo prefers fast focus cataract surgery for enhanced healing and nearly immediate vision improvement. Some patients see with 20/20 vision the day after their procedure, while other patients experience slight blurring for a few days as their eyes and brain adjust to their new intraocular lens (IOL).

John after Cataract Surgery

John Caudlik has undergone cataract surgery at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center and it helped him maintain his independence. He was also very impressed with the cataract surgery safety procedures. Dr. Justo and his staff made him comfortable throughout his procedure.

Many of our patients enjoy crisp, clear vision without glasses and contacts, but some will still rely on corrective eye wear for the best vision. Each patient's vision outcome is dependent on a number of unique factors, like which type of IOL you choose to receive. Once your vision has stabilized, Dr. Justo will determine if you need glasses. If you do, measurements will be taken for your new prescription. 

Generally, cataract surgery patients enjoy:

  • Sharper vision
  • A reduction of glares and halos
  • Brighter, more vivid colors

The type, power, and placement of your IOL all have significant effects on the results you experience. Previously, doctors had to wait weeks after surgery to review a patient's results. Now, Dr. Justo uses ORA®-guided surgery to provide accurate analysis of a patients' condition after surgery. Our practice is proud to be one of the first in the state to offer this cutting-edge technology, which provides patients with outstanding results.

What Steps Can I Take to Maximize Benefits after Surgery?

During a pre-operative consultation, you can learn more about aftercare tips and ways to improve healing. Fast focus cataract surgery results in little downtime, but it is still important for our patients to take care of themselves after their procedure. You will be provided with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops to minimize the risk of infection. 

Like any surgery, cataract surgery is not free of side effects or risks. Common side effects include irritation and red eye, and in rare cases, infection. After surgery, Dr. Justo periodically meets with patients to monitor healing and screen for indicators of complications.
