During the war a great many claims were made for methods of increasing visual acuity, decreasing astigmatism, correcting eye muscle balance and even to overcoming color blindness. A veritable wave of cures has arisen to aid young men with borderline vision who desire to enlist in the air corps or other branches of the service requiring nearly perfect vision. The civilian population will probably feel the effects of these remedies which are causing some concern in optical circles. The present authors are attempting to attack the problem experimentally and this paper is presented as a survey of the field as it has been expressed by various writers.
