Dr. John Edmonds Jr, MD
Dr. Tom Edmonds was born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and has been practicing Ophthalmology in the Hampton Roads area since 1995. Over the years, Dr. Edmonds has earned a reputation as one of the area's finest and most innovative surgeons. He performed the areas first "no-needle, no-stitch" cataract procedure and was the first to implant the ReSTOR multifocal lens after cataract surgery. 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. Having performed over 10,000 cataract and refractive procedures, he is one of the most experienced surgeons in Virginia. Dr. Edmonds received an undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia before earning a medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. Dr. Edmonds fine-tuned his medical skills during an internship at Riverside Hospital, a pre-residency Ophthalmology fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina, and a residency at Tulane University. He also worked in New Orleans for three years, teaching at the Tulane University School of Medicine, while building a successful general ophthalmology practice. After returning to Virginia in 1995 he became one of the founders of Tidewater Eye Centers and served as its president for several years. Dr. Edmonds prides himself on providing every patient with attentive personalized care. Learning from his grandfather and father, who were the only physicians in a small Virginia town, Dr. Edmonds understands the importance of maintaining open communication and trust with each patient. Dr. Edmonds performs every pre-operative workup himself and takes the time to thoroughly explain the procedure, answer any questions, and identify the individual needs of each patient. He believes success lies not in volume, but in the quality of his surgical results and the patient's satisfaction.
