Eye Exerciser Apparatus Resembles Circus Wheel
DESIGNED to strengthen eye muscles through exercise, a new apparatus invented by Dr. William I. Henry, of Akron, Ohio, resembles a carnival chance wheel in appearance. The device consists principally of a large rotating disc to which toy animals are attached in slots in such a manner that they assume different positions as the disc rotates by mechanical means.
To use the apparatus a patient sits before the disc, placing the chin on a special rest. Watching the antics of the toy animals as the disc rotates at various speeds provides exercise for the eye muscles.
