Joost Kremers gave a good answer.  I'll just add some "unrelated" comments:

- `find-file` should not be called from Elisp.
  Use `find-file-noselect` instead.

- It's OK to temporarily change to another buffer, but your "eval"
  should eventually return to the original buffer.  Otherwise, do expect
  weird behaviors.  IOW wrap a `save/with-current-buffer` around your code.
