Amsler grid

The Amsler grid can detect changes in macular degeneration, especially the distortion, we may indicate the onset of degeneration or wet recovery.

  • The chart is placed 30 inches from the eye.
  • You have to use lens close if needed.
  • Eyes are checked one by one, you can cover the other eye with hand.
  • You have to stare directly at the black center point and see if all the lines of the grid are straight or if they are distorted, blurry and dark in some area. It is important to tell the ophthalmologist of any changes.
