Vision Test – Amsler Grid

vision-wiki-1

The Amsler grid eye test is used to detect early signs of retinal disease or monitor its progression. The test can be used to detect conditions such as age-related macular degeneration and other macular disorders.

The Amsler grid is a square-shaped graph with uniform lines and a dot in the center. A patient covers one eye, while looking at the center dot. If the grid looks distorted, wavy, or non-uniform in the center area, or if any areas are missing, it may be due to retinal conditions.
