Arizona Eye Institute


Celebrating 3 decades of customizing vision and beauty care.

For nearly three decades, Emilio M. Justo, M.D., has served the vision and beauty needs of the Northwest Valley as Founder and Medical Director of the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, where he emphasizes a friendly atmosphere, state-of-theart technology and customized cataract and eyelid surgeries.

Combining his skills as an ophthalmologist with his talent as a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Justo specializes in customized eyelid surgery and cataract surgery. The team at the Arizona Eye Institute has mastered working with insurance companies to authorize upper eyelid surgery—due to its dramatic impacts on a patient’s vision.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, had long been thought of as a cosmetic procedure before Dr. Justo began advocating for the community’s right for great vision. Upper eyelid surgery is most often authorized by insurance providers at the Arizona Eye Institute, as it is deemed medically necessary to restore peripheral vision lost to droopy eyelids.

The Arizona Eye Institute is also a go-to for routine and medical eye exams, and both Dr. Justo and his Director of Optometry, Eugene Shifrin, O.D., see patients for conditions including cataracts, Dry Eye, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Eye and more. 

The Arizona Eye Institute has three locations, in Sun City West, Sun City and Wickenburg. The Sun City West location houses the Medicare-certified and AAAHC accredited outpatient surgery center. “I personally perform all of our operations here,” Dr. Justo said. “We have one of the only ophthalmic surgery centers in the area.”

To schedule a consultation with Dr. Justo and his team at the Arizona Eye Institute or learn more about the practice, visit or call (623) 975-2020.
