Amsler Grid

An Amsler grid is a checkered pattern with a central dot in the middle of the pattern. It is a self-monitoring tool that allows people to check their vision one eye at a time to monitor for blurring or distortion that may signify the conversion from dry to wet AMD. People with AMD progression may notice changes on the Amsler grid. If this occurs, they should contact their ophthalmologist promptly.
