"SORE EYES IN THE SCHOOLS,"
' Th Following Item Appeared as nn Editorial in ,tho Philadelphia In
quirer of October 17.
"The news that there are 100,000 scholars In the
public schools of New York suffering from1 trachoma, a very
Infectious disease of the eyelids, Is one that calls for action
In this city. This disease, while Usually not dangerous, Is
often tedious In recovery and entails suffering on the vic
tim. If It Is epidemic In New York It may well become
so In this city.
" We have no doubt the health authorities, the educa
tional authorities and the ward physicians are looking after
the matter, but It Is one which after all calls for the closest
scrutiny by the teachers, who have the best chance to In
vestigate the subject,
"Any appearance of the disease ought to be promptly
reported so that Immediate action may be taken."
What applies to the school children In New York and Philadelphia may
likewise be the condition here. The eyes of school children should be cared
for an ounce of prevention Is worth a pound of cure.
Any child with trachoma should be kept from school until entirely cured,
as trachoma Is a most contagious disease.
The eyes of every school boy or girl should be examined at least twice a
year at the beginning of the year and about six months after. In tender age
the eye ball is most subject to changes, creating either near, or far-sightedness.
A child which Is backward In studies Is not necessarily dull or lazy, in
most cases some eyevtrouble is the cause.
I have made an exhaustive study of the eyes, giving particular attention
to the examination and treatment of children's eyes both in Germany and this
country. 1 am a graduate of the Unlversityof Berlin, Germany, and an honor
graduate of the Philadelphia Optical College.
I will examine school children's eyes with the most progressed methods,
and will prescribe glasses only where absolutely needed.
You are cordially invited to visit my parlors and see a most thoroughly
equipped establishment for examination of eyes.
