What is an eye antique?
This is a relatively old object related to eyes and vision. Unlike some antique objects which can date back thousands of years, some eye antiques, like ophthalmoscopes, can only date back about one hundred and fifty years. This is because the first ophthalmoscope was invented in 1851.
Other objects, like spectacles, can go back hundreds of years to when glasses were first invented. Eye surgery instruments and printed materials can span the centuries as well. There are large numbers of fascinating objects related to man’s most precious sense, vision. Here is a sampling of them. Please enjoy your visit.
