"Being a health care professional, I knew the importance of finding a knowledgeable, compassionate, and technically skilled physician who I could trust to do my cataract surgery. I found these qualities in Dr. Buehler. From a patient perspective, she is also surrounded by a pleasant, highly dedicated and caring staff, so each office visit was a very positive and comforting experience. Dr. Buehler was able to restore my vision as if it had been 'digitally remastered in full technicolor' thus re-gifting and enhancing the quality of my life beyond measure. I am extremely grateful and highly recommend Dr. Buehler and her staff at InFocus Eye Care."
"My experience with the office was excellent- appointment on time, knowledgeable, pleasant and personal at every stage. My experience with Dr. Alul was professional, friendly, pleasant. She takes time and answers questions (many!) very patiently. I recommend her highly. My experience with the surgical facility was excellent- good explanations, each step clarified, they checked in often as I waited to go in to the operating room. It was comforting and just all around nice. I had wonderful results! In a short time frame (<2 weeks) my vision was 20/20 and I use only reading glasses (no RX) for the first time in 20+ years!"
"Your office strikes me as being exceedingly well trained and professional but more important everyone from the front desk to the individuals making certain you understand your follow up procedures are just plain "nice". Dr. Buehler has incredible curriculum vitae. She carefully reviews all your testing, explains your diagnosis, what procedures you should undertake, explains the probable outcomes (without over promising) and answers your questions in a very understanding manner. Her professional demeanor in surgery is very reassuring. The outpatient surgical center knows its function to the highest degree. Everyone is very professional and careful. They make certain to explain everything to the patient several times."
“To whom it may concern—and by that, I mean anyone who has concerns about their cataract surgery: If you are reading this (and probably wearing your glasses which are getting stronger with each prescription) you are doing your research on the possibility of cataract removal and surgery. In late November I went to watch my 10-year-old grandson play football. It was a miserable day—windy, cold and raining. But what made me miserable was not the weather. It was the realization that I couldn’t see that little boy out there in the field even with my distance glasses on. It was all just a blur. I said nothing to anyone but determined I was not about to live the rest of my life “missing the action”. Like you, I did my research and InFocus always came to the top of my research. Dr. Patricia Buehler went to the very top. I made an appointment with her. Much to my surprise, I had cataracts in both eyes. Everything was clearly explained, and there were options given and I made my decision. I had surgery and lens implants done in early 2011—there was virtually no pain, recovery was swift and the results are simply amazing! I think it is best summed up by telling you that when I saw Dr. Buehler for a follow-up exam, I told her I “hoped she developed cataract so she could see what she does for other people”. That’s a terrible wish, isn’t it? To be living with dulled colors, blurry vision and an assortment of glasses for both near and far? But it had become my reality over time and I know that it is yours, too. Not any more. If you come to a football game, or a soccer match, I’m the happy one cheering my grandson on, watching him try his best. And I won’t be wearing glasses unless it’s a sunshine day and I’ll have my off-the-peg sunglasses. Yes. I don’t wear glasses any longer.”
“Dr. Buehler was so thorough in explaining what I needed to have done that I felt completely at ease. She is so good at what she does. I feel comfortable recommending her to everyone who asked my how my surgery went. I am so happy after 40 years of wearing glasses that I now can see 20/20 farsighted and only need reading glasses. Thank you so much, Dr. Buehler and your professional staff.”
"The process of evaluation through completion of surgery and follow up visits to the office were professional and on time. Evaluation information was discussed and the type of surgery and results goals were covered and options explained. I chose Crystalens implants in both eyes to eliminate the need for glasses almost entirely. I am very happy with my treatment and the results . . . I am 71 and my eyesight is now 20/20! I can engage in all my normal activities, including shooting competition, wood working, fishing, reading, etc., and don't need prescription glasses any more. I sometimes need "readers" to read or see very small print or small scale markings on my shop rulers."
“I gave myself the best present ever, Absolute Awesome Sight! This is the first time I have been able to see it all… near, far and middle, without fuzziness, distortions or being out of focus. Wow! First morning after surgery I glanced up from the morning paper to see an elk walk out of the trees to the fivers edge, a good 300 yards away, while seeing quail feeding on our deck, when a heron snatched up a small fish from the shallows of the river. I sat in awe, over 30 years we have lived along the river and without the use of binoculars or telescope, I never saw all this, and am told it will get even better. What a huge life change for me. There are not enough “Thank You’s” to give Dr. Buehler and her staff.”
