HOW TO SAVE
YOUR EYES
Try This Prescription Free
Do jrou eyes (rive you trouble? Do you
already wear eyeglasses or spectacles T Thou
sands of people wear these "windows" who
mitfht easily dispense with them. You may
be one of these, and it -ia your duty to save
your eyes before it is too late. The eyes
are neglected more than any other organ of
the entire body. After you finish your day's
work, you sit down and rest your muscles,
but how about your eyes? Do you rest them?
You know you do not. You read or do some
thing- elae that keeps your eyes busy; you
work your eyes until you go to bed. That is
wihy so many have strained eyes and Anally
other eye troubles that threaten partial or
total blindness. Eyeglasses are merely
crutches ; they never cure. This free pre
scription which has benefited the eyes of so
many may work equal wonders for you. Use
it a short time. Would you like your eye
troubles to disappear as if by magic? Try
this prescription: Go to the nearest wide
awake drug store and get a bottle of Optona
tablets; fill a two-ounce bottle with water,
drop in one tablet and allow it to thoroughly
dissolve. With the liquid bathe the eyes two
to four times daily. Just note how quickly
your eyes clear up and how soon the inflamma
tion will disappear. Don't be afraid to use
It ; it is absolutely harmless. Many who
are now blind might have saved their
eyes had they started to ears for them in
time. This at a simple treatment, but mar
velously effective in multitudes of eases. Now
that you have been warned, don't delay a day,
but do what you can to save your eyes, and
you are likely to thank us as long as you
live for publishing this prescription.
