Don’t neglect your eyes. 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. All work guaranteed.
