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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR IMPENDING APPOINTMENTS:

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.

Honoring Veterans

"A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers" - President John F. Kennedy

We honor veterans including patients and staff members who are a part of the Arizona Eye Institute family.  The following incredible and true stories are veterans we know and appreciate every day. I welcome you to share your story or the story of a family member. Just contact us here. - Emilio M. Justo, M.D., Medical Director.


David Toliver, Sr., understands the importance of paying tribute to a community whose live revolves around service and sacrifice. Toliver has gone to the Arizona House of Representatives to promote a special day to honor a unique group of veterans who trained him in his youth - in 1958 when he joined the Air Force: The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African American military pilots. "I have no regrets, it helped shape me as a man, they taught me how to be an American patriot," he says of his service. "To find victory in spite of adversity. It was real for people who served. Some 58,000 of my compatriots never came home..”– Air Force Captain David Toliver Sr., who shares his experiences working with the historic Tuskegee Airmen, who now work to promote the science profession among American youth. “This is not about military history. It’s not about black history. It’s American history. We must respect our history. And as veterans, we continue to serve our great community. Today my war is to convince our youth today that being smart is okay. If people call you names - like braniac - don't let that hold you back. Being smart is what is cool."


Carl Larsen didn't wait for the draft. A week before the letter arrived in the mail, he enlisted in the Army. "I knew what I wanted to do." It was 1959 and the height of the Cold War, and Space War, and Larsen held an important role overseeing nuclear missiles in Germany. At one point he was on post to help evacuate American families in case an enemy's weapons were headed that way. "Fortunately, that never happened. But I was responsible for getting everyone to safety." He attended radar computer school at the age of 21. "Nuclear was spreading all over U.S. and Europe." His father and uncles were members of the U.S. Coast Guard, contributing to his patriotic spirit. "I appreciate and understand all of the sacrifices people have made." After his service, Larsen completed a Bachelor Degree in Accounting and began serving the Federal Bureau of Investigation, where he continues to serve the community's interests part time. - Carl Larsen, U.S. Army/FBI


"Sadly, just like most Americans, I don’t stop and seriously think about the significance of Veterans Day, nor do I think about me, a veteran, being honored on this special day set aside for those of us who signed up to serve our country.  Conversely, when I see veterans singled out on Veterans’ Day, my heart is touched, and I stand in awe. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be allowed to be called a veteran of our US Armed Forces. My grandfather served and retired from the Army Air Corps; my father served and retired from the Air Force; my current husband served and retired from the US Marine Corps, and my children’s father served and retired from the US Army. I knew from a very young age, about six years of age that I wanted to be a part of this group of people.  I can’t tell you why, I just knew.  There is but one fraternity that is larger or more honorable to be a part of than the fraternity named “Veteran”.  We veterans signed an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, to defend the freedoms held so dearly by our fellow citizens and when the call came to give our life for our country." -Thyra L. Strapac, Captain, USNR-R
