At the age of sixteen, and during several years previous, I suffered from severe and constant headaches. Being unable to relieve these headaches, the attending physician referred my case to an oculist. Examinations were made, the complaint being diagnosed as a structural difficulty, for which special glasses were prescribed. These glasses were worn for seven years for reading or anything that required close application. The oculist described the case as a malformation, an imperfection that properly adjusted glasses would correct, but which would increase with years,—and that nothing could cure. At this time, in 1895, after years of ill health, I turned to Christian Science for organic troubles which materia medica had failed to heal, but did not ask for treatment for my eyes, as it never occurred to me that Christian Science could possibly obviate the necessity of glasses. A very few treatments healed me completely of the other troubles, and then, to my surprise, I found myself reading and studying without my glasses and without the slightest discomfort. That was ten years ago, and I have never worn glasses since. I have not suffered at all from pain in the eyes or from headaches. Six of those ten years were spent in continuing my own studies, at the same time, so that my eyes were used constantly during the day and usually until late at night. I read habitually. in trains and street cars, and in crossing the ocean, and my eyes have never failed me.
