Do you have macular degeneration?

Instructions:

Position yourself at about 14-16 inches (about 40 cm) away from the figure given below.

If you have glasses that you use to read with – make sure you are looking thru the reading part of your glasses

Cover the left eye and use only your right eye to see the figure.

Stare at the white dot in the center of the grid with your uncovered eye. Keep your eye focused on the dot.  Don’t move your eyes around to see any other part of the grid except for the white dot.  Use your side vision (peripheral vision) to see all the other parts of the grid.  “Glue” your sight to that white dot.Dont move your eye around it at all.

                               

While staring at the white dot:

  • Can you see all 4 corners of the grid?
  • Can you see all 4 sides of the grid?
  • Are any of the lines WAVY or MISSING or DISTORTED?   (All lines should look perfectly straight, all intersections should form right angles and all the squares should be the same size.)
  • Are there any holes or “missing areas” in  the grid?

Then cover the right eye and repeat the steps using the left eye to see the figure.If your answer to the first two questions is no and the answer to the last two questions is yes, then you may be having a disease of the macula.For furthur evaluation click here
