See how far away you can see the letters on the bottom line without strain or effort. The exercises for improving memory and imagination and central fixation can best be performed with the aid of this Test Card. Wear your glasses as little as possible.

(These are known as Aids to Relaxation.) Cultivation of memory and imagination. central fixation, and careful and methodical reading. (These are known as Aids to Vision.) The eye muscle exercises, the remedial neck exercises, and last, bu t by no means least. a sensible diet. Remember that glasses. belp you to see, but do not naprove vision.
