use tryparse instead:

Dim amt As Double

if(Double.TryParse(Me.Amount.Text.ToString(), out amt))
'parsing success
else
'parsing failed
end if

Debug your code check what is the value u try to parse.
It might be invalid number.
U can also check for null or empty before parsing using string.IsNullOrEmpty
