He currently practises privately in Worcestershire.

Mr Edmunds, who underwent rigorous ophthalmic specialist training throughout a 10-year period in the West Midlands Deanery, undertakes cataract surgery and has a specialist interest in oculoplastics (eyelid), lacrimal (tear system) disease and orbital (eye socket) disease. During his extensive training period, he published a significant number of research abstracts and articles in peer-reviewed medical journals and obtained a PhD for research in thyroid eye disease funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Following this, Mr Edmunds gained specialist experience in oculoplastics from a number of United Kingdom centres of excellence, including Birmingham & Midland Eye Centre, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, and Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. Impressively, he has, to-date, won a number of renowned national and international prizes in ophthalmology, including the Ian Fraser Cup of the Oxford Ophthalmological Congress, the Royal College of Ophthalmologists John Lee Award and the Roper-Hall Prize Medal.
