An informed arthritis patient is always an intelligent arthritis patient. Conquer rather than cope with your arthritis.

Amslers grid for hydroxychloroquine

How is amsler’s grid to be used?
  • Use the chart at eye level in a well-lit area.
  • Place the chart at an arms length from your eyes.
  • Wear your reading glasses if you use them to read.
  • Cover one eye and test the other, uncovered eye.
  • Keep bringing the grid towards you with your sight fixed on the dot at the center.
  • Test the other eye using the same technique.
  • See your Rheumatologist/ Ophthalmologist if any lines or squares on the Amsler Grid look wavy, blurred, fuzzy, or missing as observed with either eye during the test.
