Comprehensive Eye Exam

Concerned about Astigmatism, Take the Astigmatism Eye Test below:


You can try the following at home:

1. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, put them on.

2. Sit about 35 cm (14 inches) away from your computer screen.

3. Look at the chart with your hand covering one eye. How do the lines appear? Are they all equally clear and sharp?

4. Follow these steps again to test the other eye.

What do your results mean?

If you do not have astigmatism, the lines should appear sharply focused and equally dark. You may have astigmatism if some set of lines appear sharp and dark, while others are blurred and lighter.

 

 

Concerned about Macular Degeneration, take this test:

  1. Tape this page at eye level where light is consistent and without glare.
  2. Put on reading glasses or contacts and cover one eye.
  3. Fix your gaze on the center black dot.
  4. Keeping your gaze fixed, try to see if any lines are distorted or missing.
  5. Mark the defect on the chart.
  6. TEST EACH EYE SEPARATELY.
  7. If the distortion is new or has worsened, arrange to see your eye doctor at once.
  8. Always keep the Amsler's Chart the same distance from your eyes each time you test.
