Client Success Story – Chef Justin Antiorio

Head­line: Tes­ti­mo­ni­al from Chef Justin Antio­rio

Chef Justin Antio­rio, who grew up in Lyn­d­hurst, NJ, made a nation­al name for him­self when he was the run­ner-up on sea­son 10 of Hell’s Kitchen. In all 10 sea­sons of the show, no one had ever received a per­fect score in the “Blind Taste” test, but Antio­rio did. While his taste and vision for food may be crys­tal clear, his vision had been some­what of a hin­drance in the kitchen. Here’s what he had to say about his expe­ri­ence with LASIK and Dr. Stet­son at Dia­mond Vision.

How long have you been suf­fer­ing from the con­di­tion?

Hav­ing worn con­tacts for close to 20 years, I con­tin­u­al­ly suf­fered from chron­ic dry eyes that came about from the heat in the kitchen that I was exposed to all day when he worked. Final­ly, I got to the point where my eyes were per­ma­nent­ly irri­tat­ed, I knew I had to find a solu­tion.

What made you choose LASIK?

I final­ly had enough of using eye drops dai­ly and deal­ing with dis­com­fort in and out of the kitchen. Tired of try­ing to find some­thing to relieve my dry eyes, I turned to LASIK to fix my need to wear con­tacts all the time.

How did LASIK improve the qual­i­ty of your life?

Instant­ly changed. Hav­ing my vision cor­rect­ed by LASIK elim­i­nat­ed the need for me to wear con­tacts. The heat in the kitchen was no issue any­more and my dry eyes dis­ap­peared, thus let­ting me ful­ly enjoy cook­ing again. Out­side of the kitchen, I was able to enjoy the things I loved with­out being hin­dered by con­stant dry eyes. “Dr. Stet­son fixed in 10 min­utes some­thing that was both­er­ing me my whole life,” said Chef Justin.

How would you describe your expe­ri­ence with Dia­mond Vision and Dr. Stet­son?

Dia­mond Vision and Dr. Stet­son pro­vid­ed an excel­lent expe­ri­ence that was edu­ca­tion­al through­out the whole process. Explain­ing every step of the way, Dr. Stet­son made me feel com­fort­able and con­fi­dent about the pro­ce­dure. Dia­mond Vision and Dr. Stet­son gave me the joy of cook­ing back by elim­i­nat­ing my dry eyes. “Thank you Dia­mond Vision for an amaz­ing job. Dr. Stet­son changed my life.”

Chef Justin is just one of many indi­vid­u­als that have decid­ed to take back their vision and free­dom with the help of Dia­mond Vision. Vis­it www.diamondvision.com to find a loca­tion near­est you.
