You can get a pair of spectacles that will keep your eyes in as good condition forever after as when first you use them. These Medicated Glasses have been thoroughly ex amined and analyzed by Prof. Berger, the great French oculist, and Dr. Carl Hollander the famous German oculist, and pronounced as far superior to any glass as yet made, and recommended as the only glasses to be used to save the eye. American oculists claim that the Medicated Glasses have no equal, and can in some cases restore the eye to its original sight, when used in time, and in no case can the eye become impaired by the use of these glasses, if properly adapted, ior the following reasons: I. The chemicals soften the light to the eye, completely doing away with that tiresome sensation that is usually experienced in using glasses after one or two hours' use. r. The medicated properties contained in the glass make it as hard as a diamond. It will retain its polish and never become dull or dim, hence you will always see through it as bright and clear as at first. 3. The chemicals keep the glasses cold as ice-result is, your optio nerves always cool, doing away with any feverish sensation to the eye. 4. These glasses have no equal for night reading or sewing. With them you can sit up all night, and the light has no effect on the eye, with no tiresome sensation whatever, which necessarily continues to improve the eye. We suit all eyes and warrant our work, or money refunded. Persons living at a distance, desiring the Medicated Glasses, can be fitted by seiding address with postage stamp. The Medicated Glasses can only he had at 74 St. Charles Street, as we have no agents, nor do we employ peddlers. Granulated and Sore Eye-lids cured without the use of knife or other extreme measures.
