For some time passed my sight has been very much impair

that: I was unable to read or write with any satisfaction r.

have derived such "aid and comfort "4K)in their use llu.i

' Very respectfully yours,
'. Auqcsta, Ga., NoV. S3, 18.15.
I h ive examined and am now usiag a pair of the crvsto!
ine, miniscus glasses, purchased of frof. Gedeon. They aie
constructed upon strictly philosophical principles, and, froi.i
several considerations, are not surpassed, it' equalled, . Ly
any I have ever seen. i
The concavo-convex form of the Menses resembling the
anter.or arrangement of the human eye, collects a larger
number of rays than could be conveyed upon the retin i
from ordinary glasses of Iht same focal power, and thus in
creases the distinctness of vision. The size of the glasse.-,
also, gives a greater field ot vision with less muscular ac tion.
In short, tiie whole arrangement seems ndmirabl -calculated
to promote ease, and distinctness of vision, i i
E reserve the healthy function of that invaluable organ, the
uman eye. - i .
