His most significant contribution, freeing patients from a lifetime of bifocals, occurred with his landmark presentation on December 2, 2005 in Las Vegas. At this meeting of the Las Vegas IOL Symposium, Dr. Bucci was the first ophthalmic researcher in North America and Europe to demonstrate that mixing and matching the Multifocal implants both achieved the highest levels of spectacle independence and patient satisfaction. Dr. Bucci has been invited to share his results at world-wide ophthalmic conferences. As of March 2009, Dr. Bucci was the first surgeon to implant the FDA approved Tecnis Multifocal lens and has implanted hundreds of these to date.

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear crystalline lens of the eye. The lens is normally extremely clear, and allows light to pass through and be focused onto the retina. When the lens is not clear, and light is impeded from passing through it, a cataract is said to be present in the lens. The term “cataract” comes from the Latin word for waterfall (cataracta) as very advanced cataracts may look white, like foamy water, and be visible to an observer with the naked eye.Learn More
Modern microsurgical techniques for removing cataracts have evolved and improved dramatically over the past 20 years. During this procedure, the eye's natural lens is removed because it became cloudy as a result of the natural aging process. In the early days, cataract surgery was performed only when a person could no longer see. The cloudy lens was removed in one piece through a large incision that required many stitches. Patients stayed in the hospital for days and after surgery had to wear thick, distorting cataract glasses or deal with cumbersome contact lenses to see well enough to function.Learn More
Exciting advances in lens implant technology now allows patients to choose multifocal lens implants to correct their vision. Monofocal lens implants provide excellent vision at one point, usually distance. Multifocal lens implants provide a range of clearer vision at near, intermediate and distance, thereby allowing the performance of most daily activities with little or no dependence on traditional or progressive bifocals. Dr. Bucci will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of multifocal lenses during your free consultation.Learn More
