the Amsler Grid

This is a pretty LAME pic o' the day. It's the Amsler Grid....something I'm supposed to look at every day, with one eye covered, from a distance of about 14 inches away. I'm supposed to stare at the dot in the middle, and peripherally, the lines should be straight up and down, and horizontal. If they look all bent, like a fun-house mirror might make them look, I'm supposed to call the retinologist immediately. If they're all curvy looking, it would most likely mean that I "sprung a leak"....and those abnormal blood vessels under my retina are leaking, causing the retina to bulge....causing the vision distortion. EVERYTHING you always wanted to know....
