A cataract is a cloudy lens that impairs vision. Typically, they form slowly over time and in severe cases, can lead to severe vision degradation. Cataract surgery involves the removal of the eye's cloudy lens and placement of an artificial lens in its place in order to improve vision and quality of life. Dr. Emilio Justo offers the most modern cataract removal technique available. It requires no needles, stitches, or patches. This improves results and recovery.
Comprehensive Vision Care for Your Benefit
Drooping upper eyelids, or blepharoptosis, is a fairly common condition that can negatively impact your vision and quality of life. Dr. Justo can treat drooping lids with a blepharoplasty or muscle-tightening procedure. The muscle-tightening technique involves the placement of sutures to lift the eyelid and reduce droopiness. Blepharoplasty, by comparison, involves the removal of excess skin and fat that hang over the eyes. Because these procedures improve vision, they are often covered by insurance.
Glaucoma refers to a group of diseases that cause pressure to build up inside your eye. Without treatment, this increased pressure can damage your optic nerve, leading to gradual vision loss. Our founder and medical director, Dr. Justo, offers advanced diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma to protect your eyesight. If glaucoma is diagnosed, eye drops and laser therapy may be effective. We can also refer you to a local surgeon for more aggressive treatment.
The retina is the thin, light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye that receives visual information. Conditions of the retina can negatively affect your vision, and some retinal diseases can even cause blindness. Because many retinal conditions share the same set of symptoms, it is important to be examined by an experienced professional if you begin to experience vision loss. The doctors at Arizona Eye Institute offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for conditions of the retina.
