Glasses Needed no Longer

I have worn glasses from childhood. About twenty years ago the celebrated optician, Dr. Knapp of New York City, examined my eyes and said the best he could do was to give me two different pairs of spectacles. The trouble was diagnosed as "old sight," but an unusual case for one so young, and he asked permission for many prominent physicians to examine the eyes, to which I gave consent. I was told if I lived long enough I should be blind.

About four years ago I consulted Professor Stafford, who examined my eyes, and he, too, called in several physicians to view what he termed a remarkable case. He concluded to give me compound glasses, and required that I should have my eyes examined each year.

I began Science treatment in November, 1900, and although I required glasses in my daily occupation of sewing, I was able to leave them off entirely after nine treatments. I have continued taking treatment irregularly, having had in all about thirty, and now I have the ability to thread needles and read easily, and all pain has disappeared. I have improved otherwise, and especially in the matter of weariness. I have been a church member for many years, but the new light thrown on the Bible and the teaching of a practical life and Christian experience found in the writings of Mrs. Eddy have led me to leave the old church for the new.—Emily Mast, New York, N.
