Improved Eye Glasses Brought About by War Wartime demards have played a major part in bringing about irn- provea eyeglasses for civilian uses, according to as- sistant to the nresident of the Im- perial Onacal Company at Toronto, who arrived here Friday evening on a visit to tne Lethbndge branch The? executive was accompanied by George Mackie, Winnipeg, division- al manager for the praine provinces Mr Hennant is the son of Percy Hermant. president of the com- pany. During the war, he said, the company's Toronto plant had been engaged in the manufacture of lens systems for navigational instru- ments in use by the armv. navy and air force Bomb sights were among its more snecracular products. In addition to turning out fine optical equipment tne factory sup- plied the needs of civilians at home as well as those of the service per- sonnel Men and women in the forces received eyeglasses fitted to their individual prescription. He commented- "During the war Can- to those requiring optical attention. In many cases soldiers and airmen overseas" preferred to nave their glasses airmailed them from Can- ada ratner than endure the long wait sometimes necessary in Britain before their prescription was filled." Hardex Lens Speaking of new developments Mr. Hermant said one new line is the haroex lens, which is specially hardened TO withstand direct blows. It is particularly useful for chil- oren's "glasses. Another develoonient is the plas- tic eye which, is found to nave many advantages over the old glass It is difficult to distinguish from, the natural eye, and resists the cor- rosion of eve acids With individual molding and unbreakable, this type of artificial eye is iceal for war vet- erans who have suffered eve in- tones. Another recently Introduced inno- vation is surf coating for glasses to cut ofT glare or reflection. S F. Doe.
