The Eye Like a Camera
The eye is constructed so won
derfully and ingeniously that the
handicraft of man has as yet not
able to construct so delicate
'm instrument. It is like a cam
era—tho lens to focus, the lid as a
shutter, the Iris or color for a
diaphragm, the thick coating of
the eyeball as a darkroom, the
"nerve as the sensitive plate, and,
strange as it may seem, the
images are bottom side up exactly
as the Images In the camera. Now
so delicate and sensitive an Instru
ment as the eye should have good
care. Let us explain more fully
to you how care for the eyes.
