Boston Eye Doctor on Amsler Grid

“An Amsler Grid is a tool that eye doctors use to detect vision problems resulting from damage to the macula (the central part of the retina) or the optic nerve,” commented Boston Ophthalmologist Francis D’Ambrosio, Jr., M.D. “The damage may be caused by macular degeneration, glaucoma or other eye diseases, so an Amsler grid is useful in monitoring and detecting problems between appointments,” stated Dr. D’Ambrosio Jr.

If you are at risk for macular degeneration or other eye diseases, you can use this chart at home to monitor your vision. But using the chart doesn't mean you can skip regular visits to the eye doctor, because there may be other signs that only an eye doctor will find.
