Dr. Michael Banducci is a graduate of the University of Waterloo Doctor of Optometry program. He also has a degree in Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration. His clinical experience is broad including work at various private clinics in Southern Ontario, the University of Waterloo Clinic, The Eye Institute in Florida and St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Center in Florida. Dr. Banducci is fluent in English and Italian, and conversant in French. He is married, has two teenage boys and lives in South Mississauga.
In 2005, Dr. Banducci moved his established Mississauga practice to the current location to join with Dr. Ronald Hansford while Dr. Hansford gradually transitioned towards retirement. Dr. Banducci is honoured to have the opportunity to continue to provide care for Dr. Hansford’s patients, some of whom have seen him for almost half a century.
It is with great pleasure that Dr. Gary Kogon has joined Dr. Michael Banducci and his staff to continue caring for his patient’s visual needs at the new location.
Dr. Kogon graduated in 1966 with a degree in optometry from the University of Waterloo. He has practiced in many different fashions and has been settled in the Mississauga area since 1974. His is a true family practice having seen whole families including grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren.
Though practicing for many years, Dr. Kogon has kept current with the new developments in optometry including refractive laser management, post cataract management, digital optometry and ocular therapeutics.
Dr. Kogon has been married for 41 years to Rina and has two children Nathan and Tanya, and two grandchildren Leo and Allie. Having a child with special needs, Tanya, has given the Kogons an opportunity to learn and experience many things about life from her.

Exerpts from a letter dated early 2005:
As you may know, I have decided to gradually reduce my hours of work in my practice over the coming years. After 45 years in general optometric practice, I have developed many strong and truly enjoyable relationships with you, my valued patients. My priority for some time has been to ensure that you continue to receive the best of eye care for years to come.
I realize that my decision, though inevitable, may cause some of you concern. Thankfully, I have managed to secure an established optometrist to take over my practice. Dr. Michael Banducci is a trusted colleague whom I have known for some time. I could not do better in securing a highly experienced and caring individual to succeed me. I hope you choose to give him your support. Further to your benefit, I can reassure you that the current staff in the office have been asked to stay.
Moving forward, I will continue to see patients on a reduced schedule for the foreseeable future. Dr. Banducci will be available on a full-time basis.
One thing I have learned over the years in practice is that change will always happen. I intend to embrace this next phase in my professional life. I wish you all good health and happiness and I look forward to continuing to see you at the office.
Dr. Ronald Hansford
