The presence of scotomas was one-eyed evaluated with the best optical compensation, using the Amsler grid with white lines on amslee background in one-eyed vision, and using the PHP. If you have macular degeneration, a simple, daily routine that takes less than one minute can help save more of your vision.
Have AMD? Save Your Sight with an Amsler Grid – American Academy of Ophthalmology
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It is a visual field test to qualitatively measure the macular distortion areas in a non-invasive way, on the basis of the hyperacuity characteristic, i. To achieve the goal of this study, it was essential to choose an objective case of scotoma definition which would allow to stimate the rate of scotoma detection with each method; thus, it was defined that the patient had scotoma when both conditions were present.
Hence the Amsler grid sensitivity results may have been higher than in previous studies.
Although the sensitivity and specificity are usually calculated on a validated gold standard, there is no-one to detect scotoma using VA charts, unless using methods like macular perimetry or scanning laser microperimetry. Eventually, the macula may become thinner and stop working properly.
This page was last edited on 6 Novemberat What Are Choroidal Neovascular Membranes? Received December 31, ; accepted February 6, Bibliography 1. In the test, the person looks with each eye separately at the small dot in the center of the grid. This means the Amsler grid is a fast, portable, cheap, accessible method, with a reasonable sensitivity and specificity at handling maculopathies.
After signing the informed consent, the patients had an optometric evaluation under photopic lightening conditions: Views Read Edit View history. However, this does not modify the test sensitivity results.
An Amsler grid, as seen by a person with normal vision. The sole technician who performed both PHP and Amsler grid test was aware of the diagnosis. The original Amsler grid was black and white. An informed consent was obtained and the study is in adherence to the tenets of the Declaration of Helsinki. This study and data accumulation has been carried out in conformity with all National laws. Despite these problems, the PHP allows a qualitative and quantitative monitoring of the scotoma changes in placing and depth, in a more precise way than using the Amsler grid in AMD patients.
Role of the completion phenomenon in the evaluation of Amsler grid results. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. The results amsoer that the PHP was more sensitive than the Amsler grid to detect lesions due to AMD, in spite of a high false-positive ratio for healthy subjects. An Amsler grid, artist’s conception, as it might be viewed by a person with age related macular degeneration.
On the other hand, the unblinding could be considered as a se but the possibility of biased data in these tests is so low. Replacing the Amsler grid: In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
It was rejilka the sensitivity and specificity of the methods as scotoma detection and screening technique. Amsler grids are supplied by ophthalmologistsoptometrists or from web sites, and may be used to test one’s vision at home. Coco R, Navarro R, editors. Before starting the test with the PHP, the patients had to go through a tutorial to avoid the possible effect of test-learning.

The main handicap in the evaluation with PHP is the high percentage of void or unreliable test results in patients affected. As these methods were not available for this study, our protocol defined the presence of scotoma when both conditions were present: This problem can be related to other field tests which must be repeated several times until a reliable result is achieved.
The Amsler grid was presented in as a technique to evaluate the central visual field in patients with macular conditions. Results of a multicenter clinical trial to evaluate the preferential hyperacuity perimeter for detection of age-related macular degeneration. Prevalence of age-related maculopathy.
