Patient Reviews (191)
in Colleyville Texas |
I would not recommend. I had cataract removed and Crystal Lens inserted in March 2016. I still could not see well after surgery and returned for 4 or 5 follow-up visits with Dr. Ranelle. On the last visit he said he'd get back with me on next steps. Still haven't heard back. I have now seen 2 cornea specialists, a retina specialist and an optometrist who all say Crystal Lens - or any multi-focus lens - was a very poor choice for me since I had radial keratonomy 30 years ago.
