The Eyes Have ItPeer into the past of optometry
Lenses click into place. As you try to make out that row of distant letters.
For hundreds of years, optometrists have been helping those with less-than-perfect vision see the world clearly. Along the way, some remarkable inventions have allowed them to do so—especially 1851’s ophthalmoscope and the eye chart in 1862. Modernized versions of these are still used today. But the older models have a certain spectacular charm. Find your 20/20 vision with this collection of vintage optometry gear.
