Have you been checking your grid?

For patients diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), we hand out an Amsler grid. Pictured below, this grid has a central dot to focus on with a grid pattern. We ask each patient who has ARMD to check this grid daily. With consistent monitoring at home (which only takes a few seconds for each eye), patients can detect changes more quickly, which allows for earlier possible treatment.

Patients with ARMD should check this grid with each eye, covering the eye that is not being tested. If you have lost your grid, simply request a new one, free of charge. We have magnetic grids that fit neatly on one’s refrigerator.
