Providing customized laser cataract surgery with the AcrySof PanOptix IQ Trifocal premium lens and the PanOptix Toric lens for astigmatism for patients in Phoenix, Sun City West and the surrounding areas

Emilio M. Justo, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon, as well as the founder and medical director of the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center. Dr. Justo has provided laser refractive cataract surgery, upper and lower laser eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and facial rejuvenation treatments to patients at his Phoenix-based facilities for over 30 years. His knowledge of and experience with fixing both the functional and cosmetic problems of the eye and eye area, coupled with the special rapport he builds with each patient, has made him one of the most sought-after eye surgeons in the Phoenix area.

At the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, Dr. Justo uses the latest technological advances and proven surgical techniques to treat his patients who have cataracts. This includes the advanced LenSx® Femtosecond Laser, an extremely precise laser that creates incisions that are five times more accurate than those created by handheld tools, ensuring a safer and more effective procedure. Dr. Justo offers the latest intraocular lenses (IOLs), including the AcrySof PanOptix IQ Trifocal lens, to his cataract surgery patients. This lens implant is used to simultaneously restore near, intermediate and distance vision so that patients can see even more clearly than they did before cataracts developed; a toric version of the lens is available for patients with pre-existing astigmatism. Dr. Justo customizes each procedure to each individual patient, creating a quick and painless experience with a dramatically shorter recovery time than the traditional cataract removal procedure.
