The Amsler Grid is an easy way for patients to monitor their macular health. Patients are to test one eye with their reading correction at a time from about 12 inches away looking at the center dot and note the rest of the grid. With normal eyes the chart should have straight evenly spaced lines with no missing lines. With macular disease a patient may see wavy, distorted, missing or bent lines. Patients are advised to check every day by hanging the grid on the refrigerator or bathroom mirror. If a patient sees wavy, distorted, missing or bent lines he should contact his Eye Care Professional immediately. Below is an Amsler Grid.
