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.

Michael Harlan's Cataract Surgery Testimonial


In this cataract surgery testimonial, Michael Harlan explains that cataracts made it difficult to see clearly in low-light situations. Following his cataract surgery by Dr. Emilio Justo, he was able to achieve 20/20 vision. Mr. Harlan is now able to see the world more clearly, and feels cataract surgery by Dr. Justo was the best decision of his life.

My vision was blurry and dim. I looked at the world and what I saw was a smaller world. Lighting became more of a requirement. I had to turn on lights when I went into a room. I had more lighting needs. I knew I had choices and the choice was clear to me. Dr. Emilio Justo and the Arizona Eye Institute was my choice. I knew first-hand that Dr. Justo is committed to patient care. I knew also that Dr. Justo has a beautiful office and a well-trained, caring staff. His commitment to his patients in terms of their outcomes was something I was quite aware of. When I met Dr. Justo, he told me that the time was right for the surgery. Well, on the day of the surgery I arrived and the great team of the Arizona Eye Institute welcomed me. Dr. Justo checked in with me, made sure I was feeling well and I was comfortable. The procedure itself took 15 minutes. I never really felt anything as far as stress or discomfort. I was feeling very comfortable throughout the entire surgery. The first day, I was a little blurry, and by the second to the fourth day, my vision had started to clear up so much that the colors became so bright and vibrant and brilliant. My world opened up. I went to see Dr. Justo for my follow-up appointment, and I was delighted to learn that my vision was 20/20 without glasses. Dr. Justo assured me my eye was healing properly, and just like that, my world became larger, and what I was seeing became so much clearer. I would recommend Dr. Emilio Justo and the Arizona Eye Institute as the place to have your cataract surgery. The decision I made was the best decision for me. It has changed my life, and it is the most important life decision I've made.
