AREAS OF EXPERTISE

As well as treating cataracts and dealing with general ophthalmic problems (sore, gritty, itchy, painful eyes, dry or watery eyes, visual loss, double vision) Mr Edmunds is an expert in the diagnosis and management of:

  • Benign eyelid cysts, lumps, skin tags and fatty deposits around the eyes

  • Eyelid tumours (including cancers) requiring excision and reconstruction

  • In-turned (entropion) and out-turned eyelids (ectropion)

  • Droopy eyebrows (brow ptosis) and eyelids (upper lid ptosis) with and without excess upper lid skin 'hooding' (dermatochalasis) requiring removal (upper lid blepharoplasty)

  • Thyroid Eye Disease (and other forms of orbital/eye socket inflammation)

  • Eye problems related to facial weakness, including 'Bell's palsy'

  • Abnormal facial 'twitching' (blepharospasm or hemifacial spasm) requiring Botulinum toxin (Botox) treatment

  • Watery eyes (for example, due to blockages in the normal tear drainage system)

  • Dry Eyes (for example, due to blepharitis)

  • Artificial eyes, painful, blind eyes and socket issues in those who have previously had eye removal 

Mr Edmunds prides himself in offering the highest standards of care to patients he sees in both the NHS and private sector. ​

I would just like to thank you for all of your care and kindness to me when you did my cataract surgery. I thought that your team was lovely and I felt very relaxed the whole time.
