Eye Care Specialists Serving Bend, OR and Surrounding Areas
I had an iLasik procedure done at InFocus eye care 2 weeks ago. I've had 2 pre-op visits and 3 post-op visits so far. The whole process from contacting, scheduling appointments and the surgery itself has been smooth, extremely clear and at the end life changing for me (going from -5.75D to perfect vision).
I was looking for a local (Bend/Redmond) Lasik provider to make going to all the pre-op and post-op visits as easy as possible. I contacted InFocus via email and got a quick answer with all of my questions answered as well as an option for a free consultation (which was scheduled about a month in advance). After the consultation I was told I was a good candidate and was offered dates for my surgery and the final exam before the surgery. Before the surgery I was explained what exactly to expect by the technicians and Dr. Alul who later performed my surgery. I was also given a folder with answers to any questions I may have about the surgery including pre-op and post-op information.
The surgery starts with another eye check and an option to take a medicine to calm you down and help you fall asleep after the surgery. I was allowed to bring a friend with me who observed my surgery on a screen and was explained all the steps. All together I was in the surgery room for about 20min. Going out of the surgery room I was already able to see a lot better. I had minor pain (felt like sand was caught in my eye) about an hour after the surgery. This was the only time after the surgery that I felt any discomfort. I took an Advil, fell asleep and woke up in the morning able to see very clear. I drove myself to my first post-op the morning after the surgery and went back to work (behind a screen) after a long weekend.
I was clearly instructed multiple times before and after the surgery what drops to take when to make healing as efficient as possible. I just had my 3rd follow up and I have a perfect vision (for the first time since 4th grade). I would highly suggest InFocus Eye Care to anyone looking for a great Lasik experience.

"The morning after the procedure, I was amazed. Walking downstairs and being able to see my son's face clearly, individual needles on the pine trees outside - magical. The recovery has been fast and painless. My first time camping under the brilliance of the night sky, and not a blurry mess, was something I've been dreaming of.
My LASIK experience was professional, patient, and personable. From answering questions to accommodating my schedule, I always felt at ease and in good hands.
Dr. Alul, Rachel, and the whole staff at Infocus are rock stars."

"I am an 80 year old Korean War vet. I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Buehler and the staff who helped me through my cataract surgery. Since the surgery, I can see! And the colors!! The technician and doctor just told me my eyes are perfect now. The cataracts come on so slowly... diminishing your vision, so after surgery it's like a whole new world."
"The outcome of my laser vision correction has been outstanding, and liberating to say the least. Dr. Alul, your staff are the highest professional caliber, kind, competent, efficient and clearly devoted to providing the best care possible. What a pleasure it was for me to approach a potentially stressful procedure with full trust and belief in the total competence of the entire Infocus team."
"I had the LASIK procedure done by Dr. Buehler at InFocus Eye Care earlier this year. I cannot say enough about the customer service, attention to detail and perfect results that I experienced. The quality of my life has been changed—no more worrying about losing a contact during a photo shoot and all of the recreation activities I have enjoyed for years are greatly enhanced. My only regret is that I didn’t go to Dr. Buehler for my eyes years ago."
"I smile for no reason now. I give Dr. Alul two thumbs up – if I had three, I’d give her three thumbs up! I don’t have enough adjectives to describe how happy I am – I wish I had done it years ago. I had been wearing glasses for 57 years. I used to have terrible night vision – now I can see the Milky Way with no problem!"
"Before I had LASIK, I had worn either glasses or contacts for 25 years. My correction was -5.75 in each eye. Without my contacts in, I literally could not pick out my husband in a crowded room. I was never able to sleep on airplanes or long car rides without bringing my saline solution, contact case, and glasses. When we went camping, we had to stay at campgrounds that had running water so that I would have a place to wash my hands before taking my contacts out or putting them in. My oldest daughter and I swam with the sharks while we were in Orlando – the face mask prevented me from wearing my glasses, so I wasn’t able to see any of the sharks or fish. Hot tubs and swimming pools were out of the question unless I was wearing my glasses.
I can honestly say that LASIK is worth every penny. There is so much freedom in not having to take my glasses and all my contact lens care everywhere I go. I don’t have to miss out on activities like swimming and camping. I have 20/20 vision now all the time, day and night. For the first time in 13 years of marriage, I am able to clearly see my husband when I wake up. The money I spent on LASIK is the best money I have ever spent. Thank you Dr. Buehler!"
"When I wake up, I still sometimes think – oh no! I’ve slept in my contacts! Then I have to remind myself that I can actually see clearly without contacts. I’m a yoga instructor. I chose to have monovision LASIK (where one eye sees near and one eye sees distance). It’s great for my classes – I can see individual faces in the distance and what’s going on in my class, but I can also see my iPod up close to change the music. Plus – living in this dry climate, by the end of the day I would have problems with my contacts. Now my eyes are no longer irritated. I can see just as clearly at the end of the day as I do when I first wake up. I’m so grateful to Dr. Buehler – she did such a great job!"
"I could't be happier with my experience at InFocus. To be honest I was definitely a little nervous going into it, however when I arrived on the day of the procedure, everything just seemed right. Dr. Alul and the staff are very kind, professional, attentive and thorough; I knew I was in good hands. LASIK is a wonderful investment in my quality of life and I am excited for the many glasses and hassle free years to come!"
