Frank X OUR OPTICAL DEPARTMENT It has been recognized by specialists for many years that proper glasses are very essential to the eye; in fact, a large per cent of eye trouble only requires proper glasses. But the proposition is, getting glasses scientifically adjusted to your eyes that will give the desired relief and do justice to your eyes and relieve the disturbed condition of the nerve center. Almost anybody can fit you glasses that you can see with, but often those glasses are very injurious to your eyes and affect your general health. Thou sands of people have ruined their eyes by the use of wrong glasses, unconsciously. There is no method of examination so good as the dark-room methocV where the , doctor can see the fundus of the eye and not have to guess at 'the conditions. Our dark room is equipped with such scientific instruments as the electric Ophthalmome ter, Ophthalmoscope, Refractometer, Phorometer, Retinoscope and Prisoptometer. After a thorough and scientific examination has been made comes the all-important feature, perfectly correct glasses for the patient In order to have glasses ground just as we want the patient to have them, we have the latest improved electrical machinery for grinding glasses and will have this work done under our own supervision, so there will be no change for mistakes. We make a specialty of Tories and Kriptok invisible bi-focal lens, and all the latest mountings, including the popular Shur-on rimless eye-glass mountings. You can get your glasses the same day your eyes are examined. You can also get your broken glasses duplicated while you wait All glasses will be guaranteed to give satisfaction. No medicine will be used in making examination for glasses. t Our prices for prescription glasses will be reasonable, about what you usually pay for commercial glasses. m SAVE YOU HI We want your Turkeys from December 11 1 to 16, if you want to get them in for the Christmas trade.
