I wish I had known about these
KRYPTOK Glasses long ago.
t This is the remark which is frequently made to us.
KRYPTOK Glasses are such a wonderful convenience for
near and far vision that everyone to whom we recommend
them is enthusiastic over the ease and comfort they afford.
You to, will thank us for calling KRYPOKS to your
attention if ou are one of the many persons who should
wear double vision glasses. -
They are solid lenses with smooth, clear surfaces that
cannot be distinguished from single vision glasses.
We suggest that you call and let us explain the
advanatages of KRYFJTOKS to you fully. " '
