If you are nervous, irritable, and reading < r close work causes pain in your eyes or temples and you suffer from head ache, your eyes are weak. Properly fitted spectacles will save them and save you much suffering. Common, cheap spectacles should not be used under any circumstances. They distort ihe rays of light and do an injury instead of good. Many people are blind because they neglect to have their eyes properly fitted in time. Many children are regarded as dull in school, when the trouble is their eyes. Aave l(cur Children s eyes examined and fitted if necessary, by a competent optician. Intelligent people wear glasses. We straighten cross eyes in children, with glasses; in fact, any defect in the sight, such as hypermetropia, presbyopia, myopia, astigmatism asthenopia, strabismus, amblyopia, and all errors of refraction. We use the Crystalline Lease only; nothing better made. We are prepared with the latest instruments for testing the eyes, finding the real troubleand correcting the same. W7e fit any style of frames.
