At Picayune Eye Clinic, Dr. Blackmer provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures.

ERG and VEP:
The visual evoked potential (VEP) and electroretinogram (ERG) are two tests which can give us clues about the working of the visual pathway from the eye along the optic nerve to the brain. These tests can be very useful for patients having vision problems.
Used to track the progression of glaucoma and macular degeneration and to monitor treatment. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non invasive diagnostic instrument used for imaging the retina. It is the technology for the future because it can enhance patient care. It has the ability to detect problems in the eye prior to any symptoms being present in the patient.
