THE MICHIGAN DAILY
BEGINNING TO SEE LIGHT:
There's Much More To Pai'
Of Glasses Than Meets Eye
Unique House on Chtirch Street
Is Surrounded by East Quad
In these days of intensive spe-
cialization, the faulty-visioned
person is faced with a three-
horned dilemma when it comes to
selecting the man who is going to
prescribe the eye-glasses.
In an effort to straighten out
this problem we consulted a few
local professional eye men to get
the word on the differences among
the opthamologists, oculists, cp-
temetrists, and opticians.
Well, to begin with, the optham-
ologist is the most highly-skilled
of all. In addition to the regular
eight years required for the M.D.
degree he generally spends an-

major from San Bernardino, Cal-

In addition to the $150 State
prize, Mitchell won a chance to
go to Chicago May 10 to compete
in the Midwestern zone elimi-
nations, and then-he hopes-to
try for the national champin-
In his first crack at the Hearst
contest last year, he got only as
far as the campus championship.
He has also won the annual
Northern Oratorical League Con-
test among Big Nine schools.
Intending to make a career of
law, Mitchell has been active in
Play Production, radio, and de-
other °three years in intensive
study of the eye. His work is thus
refined to treatment and exami-
nation of the eye only, a large
share of which is surgical.
The oculist, also an M.D., does
not specialize as keenly as the op-
thamologist in that he generally
combines his practice with ear,
nose, and throat treatment The
oculist is trained for surgical work,
but it is not the general practice
for them to handle surgical cases.
These are referred to the optha-
mologist in mose cases.
Even though the optometrist
does not receive the medical de-
gree,he is licensed by the state in
which he practices to conduct Pye
Although standards of the op-
tometrist are high . . . requiring
four years of schooling in some
states, and five years in others,
they are not licensed to perform
surgery or administer medication.
Theservices of the optician are
in another category entirely. He
may be one who sells or manufac-
tures optical equipment, or one
who grinds the prescriptions, se-
lects the size and shape of frame,
and adjusts the glasses to the pa-
Wilson R.. Staples, local opti-
cian, told us that it isn't neces-
sarily the imposing array of spe-
cialists confronting a person who
needs glasses that keeps him from
attending to it. It is rather that
he would rather spend his money
on something he considers more
practical, like a lawnmower, or a
new radio for the car than eye-
"Most people will swear up and
down that they don't need glasses.
'I can see everything there is to
see. . .. I've never worn glasses in
my life' is the usual cry. They're
often amazed at the results of the
examination," said Staples.
