Caption: Pair of Neu-Vita Oculizer, eyeball exercisers. In quack medicine it was claimed that poor vision could be cured by eye exercises and that devices such as this one would negate the use of spectacles. The Neu-Vita Oculizer used a crank and pulley system to rotate soft rubber eyecups which would be placed over the patient's eyelids. It is made from rubber and plastic and dates from around 1920, England.
