He earned an undergraduate Bachelor of Arts diploma in Biology, Chemistry, and Political Science (1993) from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. While at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry on his way to earning a Bachelor of Science degree (1995) and an Optometric Doctorate (1998) he won the Presidential Scholarship each year.

Dr. Buchli started his career practicing in North East Colorado. Like many other people he wanted to move to Coastal Georgia when the opportunity arose. This opportunity came in January of 2000. Dr. Buchli purchased Vision Source (formerly Optical Illusions Eye Care) from Dr. Robert Chapman. Since that time, Dr. Buchli has added new offices in St Mary’s and Jesup to better serve the people of South East Georgia.
