Dr. Emilio M. Justo, MD

Ophthalmology | Male | 54 years old

Emilio M. Justo, M.D. is the Founder and Medical Director of a unique institute that today offers the top of the line technology for the most pressing vision and cosmetic needs. Dr. Justo first opened the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center in 1989. Today, he performs bladeless refractive cataract surgery using the LenSx femtosecond laser - which offers the growing number of patients with cataracts a safer and more precise vision correction. He is proud to be one of a few surgeons in Arizona who use the newest laser technology. Upper eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is also performed by Dr. Justo. Arizona Eye Institute staff works hard to help patients whose insurance often covers the medically-necessary upper lid outpatient surgery performed under local anesthesia. While the procedure regains a patient's natural eyelid structure, the surgery also can significantly improve the patient's peripheral (side) vision and help decrease heaviness and eye fatigue. Dr. Justo's story begins with birthplace near Havana, Cuba. His parents wanted a better life for their son, and were fortunate to flee Fidel Castro's communist Cuba when he was only 3 years old. The young man did not take the new opportunity before him for granted. Relocated to Indiana, and at times raised by grandparents, he watched as his father worked two jobs and his mother study at Indiana University. Dr. Justo worked as hard as his parents, and at only 17, he graduated Valedictorian of his high school. At only 23, he graduated from the prestigious Integrated Pre-medical/Medical Program at University of Michigan, with both his B.S. and M.D. degrees. At 27 he moved to Arizona and joined an established ophthalmologist in Sun City. Just months later, the ophthalmologist suffered serious health issues, and Dr. Justo took over the practice. It would grow and expand to the three locations today in Wickenburg, Sun City and Sun City West - drawing patients from all over Arizona, as well as nationally and even internationally. The institute offers everything from annual eye exams and eyewear, to more serious vision care. Dr. Justo's Nursing Director is also a Certified Aesthetic Laser Nurse who also provides a variety of aesthetic services including Botox and Dysport, soft-tissue fillers, microdermabrasion, sclerotherapy for spider veins, and Obagi skin care peels and products. Permanent make up is also a popular option at the institute performed by a Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional.Read more

Super happy with my recent dilated eye examination by Dr. Justo! Very thorough and I absolutely love my new reading glasses I was able to order from the optical! Lisa the optician helped me pick out the most gorgeous frame for them! I will definitely be back!

Since having such great success with my eyelid surgery with Dr. Emilio Justo, I continue to go to Arizona Eye Institute to maintain the beautiful results! I have had Restylane filler done by Roxanne, the Director of Nursing, for the past two years. I can’t say enough about the wonderful results! It looks so natural, no one even knows I had anything done. So if you want to look even better than you do and don’t want anyone to know, this is the place! I wouldn’t trust anyone else!

A full service location that welcomes you from the time you walk in the door. My vision was greatly improved after eyelid surgery. Doctors were very informative and compassionate throughout the process. I have recommended all my friends and will continue to use this office for all vision needs.
in Surprise, AZ |
From start to finish and follow up, my experience was excellent.

I have been a long time patient at Arizona Eye Institute and I always feel so welcomed at every visit. I am always treated like family from the ladies at the front desk to the cosmetic consultants and doctors. Every visit is such a pleasure. I have recommended so many friends and family who have had the same experience.
