Back in the day, folks would often purchase eye exam kits by mail order. The kits came with directions and the individual would take the measurements and send the details back to the company for their prescription eyeglasses to be made.

This instrument dated 1928 has survived in very nice condition sporting a miniature paper optical chart. The wooden tool measures about 11.5 inches, complete with a good optical lens and functions like new.
