There is nothing an elderly person,
who must rely upon artificial aid for good
vision, so enjoys, as good glasses.
By "good glasses" we do not mean ex
pensive frames, nor elaborate mountings,
but do mean a finely ground lens, a lens
refracting each and every atom of light
accurately, and fitted by a competent op
tician, from scientific measurements,
made in a scientific way-
The one who has relied upon cheap,
illy fitting sight-dsstroyers, sold by stores,
peddlers, and incompetents glasses
which give the greatest relief when lost,
is the person who will evince the most
appreciation of those we fit, after an ac
curate measurement of the eye and its
defect. Dk. H. A. Sciiu., Morenci, guar
antees a good fit.
