Instructions

  • 1 - If you wear glasses for reading or other near work, please wear them for this test. Place the grid where you would normally hold a book to read, or where you would hold any object to see it up close.
  • 2 - Test one eye at a time. To test the right eye, cover the left eye and look at the central dot. While looking at the dot, try to see all four corners. Also see if the lines of the grid are wavy or broken. If any part of the grid looks different from the last time you tested this eye, make note of the change. To test the left eye, cover the right eye and repeat the steps above.
  • 3 - Test both eyes weekly, or as directed. If there are any changes to your vision, call your eye doctor immediately.
