In a solo practice, Dr. Bozdech treats conditions such as ocular and periocular traumas, ruptured/perforated eyes, lacerated lids and other complicated eye conditions.  He monitors, diagnoses and treats a broad spectrum of eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic complications and cataracts. Patients can receive Lucentis injections in his office for wet macular degeneration, and macular edema from other causes. As a medical doctor, he can order MRIs, CT scans and other diagnostic tests anywhere in Canada. Dr. Bozdech limits his practice to the treatment of medical conditions and therefore does not perform corrective laser eye surgeries, nor does he normally prescribe glasses and contact lens, except in extenuating circumstances if patients cannot obtain these services to their satisfaction from their local optometrists. The laser treatments Dr. Bozdech does perform are only for medical conditions such as posterior capsular opacifications, diabetes, vascular abnormalities, retinal tears and glaucoma.

Dr. Bozdech performs surgeries mostly in Innisfail and Wetaskiwin hospitals and ocassionally in the Red Deer hospital.
