James is actively engaged in research, evidenced by his regular publications in high impact peer reviewed scientific journals on the topic of novel techniques of corneal transplantation. In addition to running a corneal fellowship programme in which he trains international candidates on a one year programme in the NHS at Southend, he lectures internationally, and runs surgical courses for surgeons around Europe via the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
