We are nsing our eyes much more than 5 our forefathers did. We are doing office work on books, shop work in a bad light, type-writing, sewing and reading. While there used to be but one news- paper a week we now try to read four or five a day. The eyes are worked from J " early morning until late nt night. Nature simply won't stand it and we have m to wear glasses. Another reason is because we understand the eye better. We know the good and bad effects of lenses. We know how to relieve discomfort 5 0 and suffering which a few years ago had to be endured. Thousands of people had sickheadaches all their lives and knew no permanent remedy. Now more than six out of ten are cured with lenses. When we consider how slight a de. 5 feet will throw the eyes out of adjustment it is a wonder that glasses are not worn even more than they are.
