Cured in a Few Days 241
When he looked at a blank wall, or a blank white card, the retinoscope still showed mixed astigmatism and he still saw the specks. When, however, he remembered a black spot as well as he could see it, when looking at these surfaces, there were no specks, and the retino scope indicated no error of refraction. In a few days he obtained complete relief from the astigmatism, the muscae volitantes, and the headaches, as well as from chronic conjunctivitis. His eyes, which had been partly-closed, opened wide, and the sclera became white and clear. He became able to read in moving trains with no inconvenience, and-what impressed him more than any thing else-he also became able to sit up all night with patients without having any trouble with his eyes next day.
