AMD self test

AMD self test

Has your visual acuity changed? Do you see black spots or do straight lines appear crooked?
Take a self-test.

This is how it works

The Amsler grid test is the simplest way to detect early stage AMD and can easily be performed at home.

  1. Cover one eye with your hand.
  2. Hold the Amsler grid in front of you at reading distance (30-40 cm).
  3. With the other eye, fix on the black spot in the centre of the field.
  4. Look out for blurred, distorted lines.
  5. Repeat the test with the other eye.

In no way does the Amsler grid test replace a medical examination.
Only your eye specialist can give you a sound and definite diagnosis.
