Macular eye test (Amsler grid)
You can check the function of your macula with the so-called “Amsler grid”. It enables you to detect early changes in your central vision that you would not otherwise notice. If there are the corresponding changes, you should carry out this self-test every 1-2 weeks. Self-testing with the Amsler grid is carried out as follows:
Visual acuity test
The visual acuity test can tell you whether your vision should be checked.
You can use the test either “offline":
Focus on the picture from a distance of 3 metres.
Cover one eye with your hand and look at all the letters from top to bottom with the other eye, then change, and then repeat the test with both eyes.
If you recognise all the letters, you probably do not need glasses or contact lenses, but you could still be long-sighted.
If you cannot recognise letters or only partially, we recommend a professional eye test.
We would be pleased to offer you an appointment.
