Christian Science was first presented to me in June, 1897, at which time I was suffering intensely from headaches and serious trouble with my eyes. From my youth up I had been thus afflicted, and had consulted several doctors, but could not get relief. I went to the best oculist here and he gave me treatment for months. I had finally to resort to morphine, and had to increase the dose until it took three grains to subdue the pain. All this time I was under treatment with the oculist and he said the only thing left was an operation on my eyes. I asked him what would be the result if I did not have it, and he replied, blindness. I could not make up my mind to have an operation performed, and turned from him thoroughly discouraged and disheartened.

It was at this time, when I was almost a mental and physical wreck, that I turned to Christian Science for help, was healed in the first treatment, and have never had a return of the trouble. The following winter I broke my glasses, which I had worn constantly for twelve years. It is now seven years since I gave up their use and my eyesight is perfect.
