THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS
Our Workshop on the Premises Means to You Wearers of Glasses
Absolute Accuracy—Quick Service
The advance of Optical Science has rung the knell of the man with “Specs for Sale.” Everyone with even the slightest knowledge of
Optics knows today that satisfactory glasses cannot be sold from stock like sugar or shoes.
Recognition of this fact has brought about the necessity for “made to order” glasses—lenses that are ground exactly to your prescription,
of a size and shape to suit your features and fitted in a frame or mounting best adapted to your requirements.
Hence our workshop on the premises. We found years ago that we could not give our customers the prompt service and guaranteed accuracy
to which they were entitled if we had to depend on some outsider to make the glasses. There were daily mistakes and delays that were simply un
avoidable. f *
Now we have one of the best mechanically equipped optical workshops in this section. In this shop we are able to manufacture from the rough
glass even the most complicated lenses in a few hours at the longest. Every operation is under our personal supervision and we are not only able
to promise your glasses at a definite time but also to guarantee that when you get them they’ll be just exactly RIGHT!
An accurate examination of the eyes, is of course, the first essential. We make these examinations by the most approved scientific method,
grind the lenses and adjust the finished glasses to your face, all in the same day if desired. We also fill occulists' prescriptions and can duplicate
your present glasses when required.
Just try out this claim for quick Service at your next opportunity! Money Refunded if Glasses
Should Prove Unsatisfactory. The Right Way is Our Way.

This little machine is used in
cutting lenses to any desired
shape and size. The cutting is
accomplished with a diamond
set in the machine.
The holes for use in setting the
lenses in eyeglass or spectacle
mountings are smoothly and ac
curately bored by this diamond
drill. ' -
With this instrument the oper
ator locates the optical center of
the lens and also marks the axis
of the cylinder, if any. It is also
employed to check the accuracy
of every completed pair of
glasses. We call it the “police
man” of the shop.
