An Amsler Grid is an at-home tool/exercise that you can use at home to monitor your symptoms related to different retina conditions including macular degeneration and epiretinal membranes/puckers.
Place the grid about 12 inches away (for example: on your refrigerator).
Cover one eye and look at the black dot in the center of the grid. Repeat with the other eye.
The goal is for the grid to be normal OR stable/unchanged
