of The E?ye
When an eye is said to be as*
tigmatic, the meaning isthat the
eye has a double focus. This
annoys the brain and the eye
will strain unconsciously to bring
about a clear focus. Ti.;s strain
usually causes headaches. As*
tigmatism is usually congenital
or so at birth it is remedied by
wearing glasses ground from
the segment of a Cylinder; these
glasses, it" rightly made bring
images to a focus on the retina
and this relieves all strain.
Children as well as adults Buffer
from astigmatism. I am pre*
oared to correct all common or
complicated errors of sight. My
examinations are free.
