Eye Exam

Here's a simple eye exam I was given by either the ophthalmologist or my optometrist 6 years ago when I had spotting in my eyes.  Cover one eye and stare at the black square in the center. If all the lines are straight, and there are no missing pieces, your eyes are good.


My right eye is good, but I just tried this recently with my left, and many of the lines bend just slightly.  Guess I am going to have to go get that checked out...
