The Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is Open

We are still open at our regular office hours at each of our three locations. Our Medical Director & Founder, Emilio M. Justo, M.D., is seeing surgical consultations. Dr. Mark Yates and Dr. Manuel Zambrano will continue to see our postoperative patients as well as any urgent and emergency patients, along with medically necessary eye exams throughout this time.


As always during the cold and flu season that we are now in, we ask that you reschedule any appointment if you feel ill, have experienced a fever within the last 24 hours or are concerned that you may have been exposed to someone with these symptoms. We will be asking screening questions as patients arrive.

If you have an urgent eye problem and feel you need to be seen promptly, our office is here for you, but we ask that you call us at (623) 975-2020 to schedule a same day appointment rather than walk in.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order mandating the temporary halt of all elective surgeries and all surgeries not considered life saving, in order to divert supplies to emergency and life saving medical needs. If your surgery must be rescheduled, one of our team members will reach out to you.

Our service to you is very important to us, so in response to this mandate, we have implemented changes to our schedule aimed at upholding high safety standards while still providing needed care.

To maintain a safe atmosphere for patients and our staff, we have significantly reduced the number of patients who will be in our offices at any one time. We respectfully request that any friend or family members wait in the car during the time that the patient is inside the office. The patient may also wait in the car until the doctor is ready, at which time we can call or text you in your car.

If you would like to try on eyeglasses, please ask one of our opticians to hand you the frames you are interested in, to ensure all frames are kept clean for you.

It is important that you know we are monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and will follow our usual OSHA guidelines for infection control. We are closely following the Center for Disease Control's recommendations as we learn more about the Coronavirus. We have increased our strong disinfection protocol and maintaining deep cleaning standards.

You are like family to us, and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.

Live Surgery Patients Highlighted

A 'Classic Candidate' For Transformation

  Fran Martin first came to Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center to select the latest in eyewear fashion and lens technology at Just for Eyes Optical Boutique.

   “I realized I did not have the best peripheral vision, and had trouble looking up, to see above my eyelids,” she said. A little shy about the idea of something some consider a “cosmetic” surgery, Fran said she quickly was put at ease that the staff was there to help, and asked about Dr. Emilio M. Justo and his eyelid surgery work at the practice's own accredited surgical center. "Once I felt comfortable that I was in a place that was concerned about my vision and my health, I asked about my friend's successful eyelid surgery and whether I was a good candidate."

   “They told me—yes, you are a classic candidate! I did not even realize my vision problem until I started testing myself and what I could see.  With my eyelids so droopy, I looked half asleep most of the time.”

   “Before they even started, they got my insurance approved which made the decision even easier.  They made me feel so comfortable from the very start of the process to when I was on the table for outpatient surgery."

   “What I really appreciated was the personal interest they take in you as a person.” Fran ultimately had her surgery performed at the practice's Anniversary Gala, where guests watched the surgery live, through TVs in the multiple lobbies.

Immediately following the 20-minute procedure, Fran came right out to the Gala stage to share her new look with guests. “I already feel relief,” she said. “If you think you may be a candidate, I highly encourage you to book a consultation today.”

To Drive Again—Saving Independence

 The Story Behind a Live Streamed Eyelid Surgery

    Sherry Potts suffered every day, as her eyelids felt heavier and heavier, slowly stealing her vision and her quality of life.

   “To be able to see, I had to open my eyes really big. People often told me that I looked scared,” Sherry said. “That was my real reason for coming to Dr. Justo for eyelid surgery, to regain my vision. I was thrilled when I learned that my insurance would cover upper eyelid surgery for me.”

   It was important to Sherry that the results looked natural. “I do not want to undergo any major cosmetic surgery, or something that makes me look unnatural. I just wanted to no longer feel like there is something crawling on or pushing down my eyelashes and taking away peripheral vision.”

   “For me, the big thing was to make sure that I could continue to drive. Droopy eyelids mean you have to turn your head almost totally around to see traffic because you no longer can see it out of the corner of your eye.”

Looking at the Before and After images of Dr. Justo's patients, she was thrilled to schedule a consultation, and even more thrilled about the ease of surgery, and the successful and natural-looking results.

   “It was so easy! I felt nothing, and they made me very comfortable,” she told Gala guests as she walked right on to the stage immediately following her procedure that was streamed live as part of the Anniversary Gala.  “I would recommend Dr. Justo and eyelid surgery to anyone.”
