He was also the first to perform Custom LASIK surgery and is one of only six Virginia Eye Surgeons to be Board Certified in LASIK Surgery by the American Board of Eye Surgeons. The Hampton Roads Health Journal recently recognized Dr. Edmonds as one of the two top Ophthalmologists in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Suffolk.

He believes success lies not in volume, but in the quality of his surgical results and the patient's satisfaction.
