Having received much benefit through Christian Science over defective eyesight, I feel an earnest desire to help others who may be faced with a similar problem.

When Christian Science first came into my life I was inclined to submit to the belief that sight must become dim; but after receiving kindly help from practitioners, I realized that man has been given dominion over all so-called material laws, so that we should rebel against them, seeing clearly (discerning) that sight is independent of matter.
