IMP OR l'A NT NEW INVENTION.
SINGLE AND DOUBLE VISION
THE only PERFECT LENS in existence;
superior to any other in uso; construct?
ed in accordance with the science and plii
losophy of nature in tho peculiar form of a
Concavo-convex Ellipsis-admirably adapt?
ed to tho organ of sight, aud perfectly
natural to the eye, affording altogether tho
best artificial help to the human vision
ever invented. Sold only by the Professor
of Optica and Spectacle Manufacturer.
The advantages of these Spectacles ovur
all others arc:
1st. The only true lone known being per?
fectly free from chromatic light, so well
known to be the cause of injury to thc vi?
sion, and which makes the change from
spectacles tn glasses of stronger power so
often required, while both nearaud distant
objects are seen with equal facility through?
out, the same glasses.
2d. Can bo wot n with perfect ease for
any length of timo at one sitting, giving
astonishing clearness of vision, particu?
larly by candle or other artificial light
comfort to tho spectacle-wearer hitherto
3d. When the eyes ache or pain through
thc action of a bright light, such as is re?
flected from snow, sunny weather, white
paper and in reading, writing or sewing, or
vivid colors, these lenses, by softening tho
ray*, effect a most agreeable sensation
aud gives great relief.
-Uh. In all nervous affections of the eye,
causing didi and startling pains in tho eye?
ball or temple, appearance of luminous
and dark spots in the atmosphere, aching
or feeling like sand in tho eye, the disturb?
ed nerves are quieted and soothed.
r>th. Ground by peculiar machinery, got
up at greatcoat, mathematically caleiilatod
expressly for the manufacturo of this lens,
so as to produce it with tho true spherical
accuracy, and its focus is at tho exact
centre, a point of vital importance, and
which no other lens possess.
Cth. Proof of superiority over the obi
kind of spectacles. They are used exclu?
sively at all tho hospitals for diseases of the
eye, in Berlin, Prussia, and elsewhere.
Testimony of recommendations from medi?
cal gentlemen, professors of the highest
opthalmic talent in Charleston ond Colum?
bia, S. C., and in the Union.
COLOMBIA, 8. C., July 12, 1806.-I ha.e
examined a great variety of glasses manu?
factured by Prof. M. Bernhardt, and in jus?
tice to tho Professor, must say that his
glasses are of a superior quality, adapted
to meet the wants of almost "every eye,
vhero tho vision is in any way imperf" ct.
The Professor selected for me H pair of hi9
Australian Crystal Glasses, which are of
very superior quality and workmanship
rendering vision very distinct, almost a-:
perfect aa in youth. ? yield tins testimony
in favor of tie: Professor's glasses most
cheerfully. D. H. TREZEVANT, M. D.
COLUMBIA, S. C., July 12,1866.- I do most
willingly boar my testimony in favor of the
superiority of the Austrian Crystal Single
and Double Vision Spectacles, over all
other kinds. They aro constructed upon
tho best established and understood prin?
ciples of optics, and their adaptation to th?
human eye in its different conditions of
vision, is so perfect as to rendor sight
eas j'without effort. lu my opinion, none
oth? rs should be used, since the eyes one?;
used to these do not seem to grow old, and
by having a focus at any point of the sur
face, they appear to restore tho eyes to
their youthful energy.
li. W. GIBBES, M. 1>.
COLOMBIA, S. C., July 12, lS??.-Wo have
examined the Lenses of Prof. Bernhardt,
and consider them superior to any we have
seen. They are admirably adapted, not
only to improve the imperfections e>f im?
paired sight, but to relieve the weariness
of vision which constant study produces.
Manv of the glasses are of new and inge?
nious contrivance. Wo cordially recom?
mend the Professor to all those who re?
quire scientific optical assistance.

m the hospitals in Europe, adjusting spec?
tacles to patients under every aspect of tlc
fective vision, as well as experience iu an
e xtensive, long-established business in his
optical stores, both here and in Europe,
Prof. Bernhardt considers it a sufficient
guarantee of his ability to apply such
glasses as are best calculated for the assist?
ance or recovery of imperfect sight.
