How Much Money Are
Your Eyes Worth?
Apparently they are not much val-
uable to some people by the abuse
and neglect they get.
A man said the other day he had rather be dead than

We have the training and equipment with which) to test
your eyes. If they have any defect that can be cured with
glasses, we can fit the proper kind of glasses.
