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)
