ARTIFICIAL EYES.
Tlic following scraps of information as to
the employment of artificial eyes, which we
have acquired in watching the practice at
the Royal Ophtalmic Hospital, may be wel
come to some of our readers. The success in
the deception as to appearance is generally
most complete. Several very pleasing cases
Lave fallen under our notice, in which a
glass eye, by hiding a loathsome deformity,
and restoring personal appearance, became
the means of effecting a complete revolution
in the worldly prospects of the wearer. In or
der to complete success, it is very desirable
that the substitute eye should move well.
This, however, is not essential, as should
tho two eyes not move equally: tho only de
fect suggested to the casual observer is that
of a slight squint. To secure the move
ments of the artificial organ, tho natural
globe, in its collapsed state, should, if possi
ble, be rotained in order to serve ns a stump.
This stump or cushion, receives the attached
muscles and obeys their movements, of
course carrying with it the concave glass eye
which has been fitted upon it; If the entire
globe be diseased, and its removal necessary,
tho operation should be conducted on the
modern plan, vise: by divisions of the muscles
close to their attachments, nothing whatever
excepting the globe itself being taken away.
By this precaution, the muscles will be left
in their full length, and becoming connected
in the course of healing, with the mass of
cellular tissue, fat, Ac., which remains in
the orbit, will constitute a cushion possessed
of a certain degree of mobilAy.
Glass eyes will not wear for ever. Even
with careful patients the artificial eye gener
ally requires to be renewed, or at least re
enameled, once a year. It becomes coated at
the back by concretions from the tears, and
is then so irritating that its disuse becomes
necessary. To obviate this inconvenience,
patients should always remove them at night,
and have them carefully washed; they should
also, if convenient, lay them aside tor a few
days whenever the eye becomes irritated, or
a greater tendency to deposite is observed
than usual. Among the poor, this liability
to soon become unwearable, is a serious ob
jection to their use. Some surgeons have in
deed, almost ceased to recommend them to their
Hospital patients on this account, reserving
their employment for cases in which the suf
ferer appears more than usually intelligent
and likely to succeed in the management.
Mr. Orav* (of Goswell street,) the maker of
artificial eyes to the Ophthalmatic Hospital,
informed us, in answer to inquiries on this
head, that he thought an artificial eye
might, with ordinary care, be kept in a good
state at a cost ofubout fifteen shillings ayear.
This estimate, of course, applies only to a
pauper patient, to whom cost price only
would bo charged.—London Medical limes

TIU’E PHILOSOPHY.
In the popular Memoir of the celebrated
Sydney Smith, by his daughter, it is said:
“All was consistent about him: the comfort
and happiness of home he considered the
‘grammar of life;’ and his house, though
plain, often, in every sense of the word, was
all his life the protection of comfort. Con
sidering domestic comfort so important, he
thought uo trouble too groat, no detail too
small, to merit his attention; and though
brought up in wealth and luxury, affection
soon taught his wife to secoud him. He
never affected to bo what he was not; ho nev
er concealed the thought, labor and struggle
it often was to him to obtain the simple com
forts of life for those he loved; as to its luxu
ries, he exercised the most rigid self denial.
His favorite motto, which through life he
inculcated on his family, on such matters,
was, ‘Avoid shame, but do not seek glory—
nothing 80 expensive as glory;'and this be
applied to every detail of bis establishment. ’
What a world of debt and misery would
general adherence to this maxim save socie
ty. But, both in Kngland and America,
multitudes sacrifice their means and their
self-respect to what Sydney Smith calls “glo
ry." They want to shine as fashionable peo
ple, and not only to shine but outshine their
neighbors in dress, equippage, and all the
outward demonstrations of high life. Many
of those engaged in this petty and ridiculous
rivalry, are little able to sustain it, ami the
consequence is often bankruptcy, ami some
times crime. How much wiser to look for
happiness within the domestic circle; never
to affect to be what one is not; and, sustained
by one's own self respect, t<» regard with su
preme indifference the smiles or the frowns
of the silly devotees of f ashion.— He it. lh.s/>.
