Prior to joining Diamond Vision and becoming one of the most acclaimed LASIK surgeons, Dr. Stetson was Chief of Ophthalmology and Medical Director of the Air Force’s prestigious Air Force Academy Laser Eye Clinic. Under his guidance, the Air Force Academy Laser Eye Clinic achieved the best surgery results among the USAF’s six centers and Dr. Stetson was officially recognized for superior customer satisfaction. Dr Stetson was chosen to perform the very first Lasik procedure on a US Air Force active duty member, the four star general in charge of US Space Command! Dr Stetson’s work, as a vision doctor, with the general was instrumental to changing Air Force regulations to allow Lasik surgeons to perform procedures on USAF active duty personnel.
Born in Connecticut and raised in Upstate New York , Dr. Stetson graduated Cum Laude from Colgate University in New York, and then earned an MD degree with honors at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. He distinguished himself again in residency at the Albany Medical Center, where he obtained the highest percentile in the Ophthalmology Knowledge Assessment Examinations.
Dr. Stetson has performed more than 50,000 refractive surgeries and has been on LASIK surgeons staff at Diamond Vision since 2004, before becoming Medical Director in 2006.
