The Amsler grid test
During this test, you should see a grid of straight lines. A black point in the middle. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, leave them on for the test. You should look at the black point in the middle with your right eye first, then with your left eye.
If you see the lines broken, blurred or distorted, dark spots or the boxes in different sizes, please contact us. You can repeat this test regularly.
Regular ophthalmological checks are to be performed urgently, during which precise examinations can determine the status of the visual impairment. There are also risk factors to avoid such as smoking, high blood pressure and exposure to the sun. Genetic predisposition also plays a role. If any member of your family has AMD, there is a higher risk of getting it as well. Therefore, it is recommended that your mother, grandmother, father, grandpa, relatives take this test.
You should have a clear diagnosis made by an ophthalmologist.
