THE AMSLER GRID
GOAL: To help detect early signs of Macular Degeneration
•Hold this sheet at your comfortable reading distance. Wear your usual reading lenses.
•Cover your left eye.
•With your right eye, focus on the grid’s center dot. Can you see all four corners of the grid without removing your gaze from the dot? Do all the lines appear straight and continuous? You may see white dots appearing intermittently at the intersections; these are a normal optical illusion.
•Repeat with the other eye.
If the answers are all yes, you’ve passed. If the lines appear wavy or distorted, you’ve failed and should make an emergency appointment with an eye doctor. Any formal eye exam should be done by an ophthalmologist or an optometrist.
