Dry AMD

If you have dry AMD, the National Eye Institute (NEI) recommends that you have a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year and ask your eye care provider if high dose supplements would help delay the advancement of the condition.

Because dry AMD can turn into wet AMD at any time, the NEI recommends you get an Amsler grid from your eye care professional and use it every day to test your vision for signs of wet AMD. This is how NEI recommends you use the Amsler grid: Check each eye separately; cover one eye and look at the grid, then cover your other eye and look at the grid. If you detect any changes in the appearance of this grid or in your everyday vision, call your eye care provider.
