Dr. Crandall received his bachelor’s and medical degrees from the University of Utah, and completed a surgery internship at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, followed by an ophthalmology residency and glaucoma fellowship at the Scheie Eye Institute in Philadelphia.

Through the University of Utah’s Ghana Exchange Program and his role as Co-Director of the International Outreach Division at the John A. Moran Eye Center, Dr. Crandall spent more than a decade traveling to remote regions of the world to perform free, life-changing eye surgery to those in need and to help train local doctors on surgical techniques. He was passionate about humanitarian work and eradicating preventable blindness in developing countries as well as making a difference within his community. Internationally, he traveled to destinations such as Ghana, Nepal, South Sudan, Tanzania, Tonga, Nairobi/Rwanda, Guatemala and more. Locally, Dr. Crandall worked to perform charitable eye surgery through Operation Sight for patients in need of surgery right here in Salt Lake City, and he regularly traveled to the Navajo Nation in southern Utah to perform eye exams and surgery to those in need.
