The Amsler Grid test checks for problems with the retina, including Macular Degeneration.
This test is done separately for each eye. Follow the steps for your at home evaluation:
Cover one eye.
Look at the dot in the center of the grid.
Make sure you can see the four corners of the big square, see all the lines, both vertical and horizontal and see all the little squares.
Note any distortion that you see.
Make your appointment with Corrective Eye to discuss results and treatment options.
