Frank A. Bucci, Jr., MD is an internationally recognized expert in refractive and cataract surgery. He has been a pioneer in refractive surgery, having performed the first RK, AK, PRK and LASIK procedures in Wyoming Valley. He has performed over 9,000 refractive surgeries, in addition to performing almost 28,000 other microsurgical ophthalmic procedures. Dr. Bucci founded Bucci Laser Vision in 1998, he has been and continues to be our sole surgeon.
Dr. Bucci has given hundreds of presentations related to his research. The following is a list of only the major ophthalmic meetings in which Dr. Bucci was an invited lecturer. He has also published over 75 articles in the peer-reviewed medical literature. 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. He is the #1 Mulifocal surgeon in PA - Top 10 in the USA. Bifocal patients who have these lenses implanted prior to developing cataracts will never need cataract surgery in the future. Check out our No Bifocal Honor Roll for a listing of over 600 patients who have benefited from this advanced technology. You may even find someone from your home town.
