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.”
