IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OUR MASK POLICY

________________

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.

Entropion and Ectropion

When Your Eyelid Needs Repair

It is not uncommon for the aging process and other factors to cause in patients one of two conditions whereby our lower eyelids do one of two things:

1. Turn inward and cause our eyelashes to rub against our cornea, or

2.  Roll out away from the eye, exposing more of the cornea.

Both conditions, called Entropion and Ectropion, can cause redness and discomfort.  

Fortunately, Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center's Founder & Medical Director Emilio M. Justo, M.D., can repair the Entropion and the Ectropion during an outpatient procedure right here in his Sun City West office.
