  3. Cover one eye with your hand and focus on the centre dot with your uncovered eye. Repeat with the other eye.
  4. If you see wavy, broken or distorted lines, or blurred or missing areas of vision, you may be displaying symptoms of Macular Degeneration and should contact your optometrist or ophthalmologist immediately.
