The first one of these special eye charts is the astigmatic mirror that is used to diagnose and reduce astigmatism. Here is the chart (credit: www.i-see.org):

 

If an astigmatic looks at the lines near the center, some of the lines look darker
in some directions than others.

A typical astigmatic will see the lines near the horizontal clearer and darker than
the vertical ones. Horizontal lines may look spaced wider than the vertical ones,
too!

Also the inner circle may not look quite round in shape.

Amsler Grid

Another one of the special eye charts is the Amsler Grid that is simply a square
mesh of horizontal and vertical lines looking like this (credit: www.nei.nih.gov):

Focus one eye at the dot in the center
Can u see the dot ?
Can u see the four corners ?
Are all the small squares visible ?
Is there any curving of lines ?
