Cataract Surgery in Arizona
Cataract removal can have many benefits for your vision and impact how you live your daily life.
What is a Cataract?
Our eyes function very much like a camera. You have two natural lenses in each eye. One lens on the surface of your eye, and a second lens within your eye, called the crystalline lens. Together these lenses focus images inside the back of your eye on the retina. At birth, our crystalline lens is clear. As we begin to age, it yellows and begins to harden. When it becomes cloudy, it is defined as a cataract and begins to interfere with the quality of our vision.
Get Your Vision Back With Cataract Surgery
Protect Your Vision
If cataracts go untreated, they can damage your vision and even lead to irreversible loss of sight. During a quick and painless procedure, you can remove your cataract and help prevent vision loss.
Clearer Vision, Brighter Colors.
One of the main symptoms of cataracts is blurry vision or cloudiness in the lens. When the natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens, patients experience clearer vision. They also note colors appear brighter and more vibrant.
Maintain Your Independence
When you have difficulty seeing, it can hinder you from being able to perform daily tasks. This is especially true for hobbies that need detailed work or driving at night. After cataract surgery, many patients can get back to hobbies and activities that had become difficult due to their vision.
Opportunities to Correct Your Vision
During your cataract consultation, our team will discuss your options for Advanced Technology. Basic lenses used during your cataract-removal surgery provide single focus distance vision. An advanced technology lens, such as a multifocal IOL, will allow you to maximize your ability to focus at varying distances. For some patients, this also minimizes your dependency on glasses.
Quick and Painless
Surprisingly, cataract surgery is one of the least intrusive procedures out there. Recover in a couple of days and notice better vision almost immediately.
Does Cataract Removal REALLY Work?
Cataract procedures are very effective. With advancements in technology, the cataract operation is even safer and can be tailored to your eyes and your unique vision needs.
In addition to being effective, cataract removal lasts a lifetime. Because the natural lens is removed, the cataract can never grow back. The artificial lens that replaces the natural lens is made to last more than 200 years.
Most patients also find that cataract eye surgery is quick and painless. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you will go home the same day. You will still need to rest and have someone take you home. However, the overall recovery is typically very easy. Patients can often begin noticing improvements in their vision rather quickly.
Cataract Surgery that’s right for your Lifestyle.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY LENSES (ATL)
Advancements in Lens Replacement Surgery Intraocular Lenses (IOL) for Cataract or Refractive Lens Exchange
Today’s lens replacement patient demands excellent vision after surgery. Previous lens replacement surgery technologies provided only one focal point: distance, leaving people dependent upon reading glasses or bifocals. Recent advancements in multifocal technology now make it possible for you to read the words on prescription bottles, magazines, newspapers, and computer screens without magnifying glasses or bifocals (even trifocals), while still clearly seeing objects at a distance.
These lenses have the ability to consistently offer improved vision at various ranges – near through distance. Your doctor can discuss with you which lens will best address your visual demands and lifestyle. These lenses are not for everyone and some additional testing will need to be done to determine if you are a great candidate for these IOLs. The majority of patients who have chosen advanced IOLs are very happy with the results and would recommend the procedure to their friends and family who have cataracts.
The choice of lens is an investment that can help you maintain your standard of living and enjoy good vision during every waking moment for the rest of your life.

Who needs Cataract Eye Surgery?
Cataract development is a natural part of aging. Everyone at some point will develop cataracts as they age. Age-related cataracts may develop during the middle-age years, but typically they only begin to affect vision after age 60.
Cataracts are also caused by health conditions like diabetes, eye injuries, prolonged use of steroid medications, UV ray exposure, and tobacco use.

Hear what our patients have to say about their own cataract procedures.
The team at BDPEC performed perfectly for my first surgery ever. Pre-screening was extensive covering all aspects of the eye for cataract surgery. Pre-op instructions were clear and completely covered all expectations of surgery. Drs Martin and Diaz answered all questions and concerns calming fears about the surgery. One week after the surgery, I now have 20/20 vision in the eye the surgery was performed upon. Got the ORA upgrade lens, can’t tell you how clear you can see. No need for distance glasses, only readers now. Excellent service by all support teams. Highly recommended.
Excellent care, organized and efficient. Love Dr Atodaria… My cataract surgery was a wonderful success. Thank you to all of the staff.
Between Dr Berlin and Dr Asota they are the two best eye doctors I’ve ever seen. Always professional always attentive to your needs. They always mention if you have any issues please call out to them directly. This is a great place to have your eyes looked at as well as having cataract surgery. I had both new implants put in my eyes 6 months ago and I have perfect vision now.
