Anon - It is difficult to find information in the lay literature about intraocular lens removal.

The clinical literature indicates that lens dislocation may result in the need for removal and replacement. This is a fairly common occurrence and there are several surgical options. This article may be helpful to you as it discusses the options. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1211310-overview

Infection is, of course, an issue in any surgery. It is also important to find out the surgeon's level of experience in the specific surgery before scheduling with a particular surgeon. I would definitely take Alison's advice and ask for written literature on any clinical findings regarding the pros/cons of removal.

If I find additional information to help you I will post it. Good luck to you!
