Patients who are considering crystalens surgery should consult their eye doctor to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. Most patients who are reasonably healthy will be good candidates for the procedure, but crystalens surgery is not right for everyone. Those who are not considered to be good candidates for crystalens surgery include patients who have uncontrolled diabetes or chronic infections.
Some patients who have had previous eye problems or surgeries may also not be good candidates for crystalens surgery. This includes patients who have previously had cataract surgery. However, patients who have had corneal refractive surgery may still be good candidates for the procedure as long as their eyes are currently in good health.
