Lasik Surgery

"My vision is very important to me. I wore glasses for many years, but they were often in the way when skiing, bicycle riding or using binoculars. I could never find a pair that were totally comfortable, even polycarbonate lenses. It was also tiresome to clean them frequently, while trying to not scratch them. My right eye also had astigmatism, which was noticeable in low light and made judging distance while driving more difficult. We were on a trip in Canada and my glasses fell and broke, so I had to go through the rest of the trip with blurry vision. I chose InFocus Eye Care as they are the only provider in Central Oregon of the latest technology in LASIK surgery that decreases the risk of complications and provides superior visual clarity. As a physician, I highly value technology that decreases risk and improves outcomes. Now, 5 months later, my vision is still 20/15, which is better than 20/20. The astigmatism is gone. The actual procedure was easy for me to tolerate, the staff were very proficient, friendly and knowledgeable. I was concerned about having dry eyes afterwards, but have had no problems. If you live in Central Oregon and enjoy the many activities available here throughout the year, clear vision without the issues of wearing glasses is worth the investment. If you choose InFocus Eye Care, you will be getting the best value in service and technology, with the best possible vision."

"I cannot thank you enough for increasing my quality of life through my vision! It's constantly amazing everyday to come to the realization that THIS is my eyesight! Thank you truly for providing me with all the information to answer my questions and have a positive experience. This has been life changing!"

“I feel like I have complete freedom now. If someone asks me to go camping on the spot, I don't have to worry about contact solution or carrying a glasses case, I'm ready! My vision is amazing! Driving and actually being able to read street signs is incredible, if I had to do it all over again I would in a heartbeat. The doctors and staff at InFocus are great at answering your questions and making you feel you are in good hands."

“I had LASIK at InFocus just over a week ago - I am impressed! I received amazing service from start to finish and was so impressed by Dr. Alul. She was fantastic - patient, kind and thorough. When I went to my regular optometrist (of 15 years) for one of my post-op visits he said, "You had great care. Not only is she a good surgeon, she's a good person. Infocus cares about your eye health which is sometimes not at the forefront of other Lasik providers." I couldn't be happier with my decision.”

“InFocus Eye Care meets what every business is striving to achieve. The customer care is top notch. The entire staff went above normal patient care. From the pre-op exam and financial arrangements to the day of the surgery. The technology that is available at InFocus is the best available. I am 100% satisfied and I can see after over 30 years wearing glasses. I can see!! I can not believe how wonderful it is to see 20/20 plus. I can practice tae kwon do without glasses falling off or contacts rubbing out or wrinkling. Words are not enough to explain how happy I am!”

“After years of struggling with chronic eye infections due to extended contact lens wear, I was referred to Dr. Alul for LASIK surgery. I am so pleased with the care I received from her and her staff! Beginning with my consultation appointment, Dr. Alul took the time to explain all of my treatment options and ensured I was a good LASIK candidate. Never did I feel pressured or obligated. This is definitely not an assembly line operation, Dr. Alul and her staff genuinely care about their patient's outcome. Just one week out from surgery, I already have 20/20 vision! I would feel completely comfortable referring even my own family member to Dr. Alul and her staff.”

"I am a mother of 2 small kids and I love to mountain bike and do anything outside with my family. We are all active and on the go. I hated everything about my glasses and contacts! I had worn both for over 20 years and they were so much trouble, and my eyes were starting to get damaged from contacts. The best part about having LASIK was being able to wake up and see. It also is nice not to have to worry about getting contact solution or anything at the store. I got all the information I needed and was given excellent care pre and post operations. I had a fabulous experience at InFocus."


-Katie

"I'm a full time fly fishing guide who loves anything outdoors. Before LASIK I was always dealing with fogged up lenses. Running class 3+ rapids with rain or snow obstructing my view was challenging. Contacts always got dirty. The simplicity of the procedure really shocked me. It did not take long and by the next morning I had 20/15 vision. In my case there was limited discomfort the day of the procedure and the day after just one eye was a little scratchy. The staff at InFocus is super friendly. The front desk recognized me each time I entered after my first visit. Dr. Buehler and her stuff really made me feel at home. Thank you!"

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery, although common, naturally cause some trepidation in those of us who have made the decision to have it.  I chose InFocus for this procedure after interviewing both local providers. Dr Alul did my pre-surgery exams and cataract surgery; coordination of the various pre- and post-surgery activities and procedures was handled by their surgery coordinator, Courtney.


I had a great experience and a great result.  I was 73 at the time and my cataracts were quite cloudy and caused un-correctible astigmatism.  I chose a monovision approach (distance in one eye, reading in the other), and am delighted that I can do everything I need to without glasses.  And the brightness and clarity of light and colors are simply amazing.  I will wear glasses for nighttime driving and for working at the computer, which is expected and normal (replacement lens are fixed in focus).


Dr. Alul was wonderful to deal with:  consistently cheerful and professional, patient with my many pre-surgery questions, and confident in the surgery (which she’s performed more than 10,000 times).  My followup visits have been similarly great.  The staff at the Bend Surgery Center were cheerful, respectful, and confident…it was a painless and comfortable process.


And I can’t say enough about Courtney’s professionalism, thoroughness, and follow through while coordinating the whole process smoothly. 


Well done, all.  A great experience and I’m very pleased!  M.O. (Bend, Oregon)

Seeing 20/20 in 2020 ... wow what an absolute gift of clear sight.  Now I see what I did not see before cataract lens replacement.  Dr. Alul and Dr Lewis plus the myriad members of the InFocus team are exceptional.  Every appointment was on-time, measurements were taken, cataract lens options explained clearly and concisely before selecting the types of lenses.  Courtney is an excellent Surgery coordinator/scheduler who "just knows" what I needed to know as a patient; she is like a friend explaining the details too.   And, Dr. Alul's rapport with the Bend Surgery Center suite nurses is like being part of a beautiful ballet.  Now just two days post-op I see textures and colors with a clarity that I have not enjoyed or seen for many years.  Thank you InFocus team.  - L.
