How to test yourself for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

One simple way you can detect changes in your vision from home, is with an Amsler Grid. Just follow the steps below:
1. If you normally wear glasses please wear them while using the Amsler grid.
2. The grid should be reading-distance from your eyes, or about 30cm-35cm away.
3. Cover one eye, and focus on the dot in the centre. Remember to test both eyes.
If you notice any irregularities like the images below, call (08) 9381 0777 to book an appointment with one of our optometrists immediately.
