It is contained in a silk lined mahogany case. It was made in England in the mid-1900s. It also contains two pairs of frames and two test types for assessing the patient’s eyesight. Patients put on a pair of spectacle frames into which the optometrist placed various lenses. This allowed the subject’s quality of sight to be assessed.
