Honolulu, T. H., July 23, 1907.
To the Editor:
—I take the liberty of bringing to the notice of the profession a little aid which I have found of great service, the jeweler's eyeglass or loupe. One very readily acquires the ability to hold it in place, unconsciously, and I have found it of great value in epilation, searching for and removing foreign bodies from the cornea, etc. I have several glasses, but perhaps use a four-inch most often. It is surprising how often it will be of assistance about the office. The other eye being free, one can readily pick up instruments without disturbing the glass, and at the same time can have both hands free for the work in hand.
