Sight Restored through Christian Science

When a child my eyes became so bad I had to be in a darkened room most of the time for a year. Several physicians attended me during that time, leaving my left eye so I could not see anything. I went to a specialist, who said I would never see out of that eye, and the other in time would be the same. There appeared to be something over the pupil.

When I first accepted Christian Science, one who had known me all my life, said to me, "Do get glasses; your sight is getting so bad you can hardly see at all." My reply was, "I shall never wear glasses. When I have read that book [pointing to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"] long enough and get understanding through that and the Bible, my sight will come to me perfectly again." I never thought of having treatment for this trouble, as it seemed to me such a real thing.
