PATENT OFFICE.

GEORGE A. CARPENTER, OF FORT MORGAN, COLORADO.

DEVICE FOR PUTTING MEDICINE INTO EYES.

SPECIFICATION fOrming' part of Letters Patent No. '772,028,'dated October 11, 1904.

Application filed November 13, 1903. Serial No. 181,102. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE A. CARPENTER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fort Morgan, in the county of Morgan and State of Colorado, have invented a new and useful Device for Putting Medicine into Eyes, of which the following is a specification.

My object is to provide means specially adapted for administering medicine to a persons eyes by induction for the purpose of strengthening weak eyes and curing diseases of the eye.

My invention consists in a device constructed and applied and utilized as hereinafter set The numeral 10 designates a flat metal disk that may vary in size and form as desired. It is provided with a plurality of perforations in its central portion. A concavo-convex plate 12 is provided with a central perforation and its circumferential edge swaged over the edge of the fiat plate 10, as shown in Fig. 3, or connected therewith in any suitable way as required to produce a chamber adapted for retaining a sponge or other suitable absorbent material, as shown in Fig. 3.

The two mating chambers are connected by a bridge-piece 13 and their outer ends provided with frames adapted to be connected with a persons ears, so the device can be worn by a person in the manner spectacles are worn.

The absorbent material in the chambers is charged with a specific medicine by injecting it through the perforations in the plates or in any suitable way to be administered to the eyes of a person by induction at different intervals of time.

I am aware two fiat perforated plates have been combined by providing one of the plates with a rim in such a manner that the rim would keep the two plates apart to produce a chamber in which an absorbent material was inclosed to retain medicine and to serve as a respirator; but in no instance has a chamber been produced by a flat plate and concavoconvex plate by connecting their edges to produce a chamber as shown and described and specially adapted for administering medicine to an eye by induction in the advantageous manner set forth, and in no instance have two such chambers been combined to be simultaneously applied and worn in the manner of spectacles.

Having thus described the purpose of my invention, its construction, application, and manner of use, the practical utility thereof will be obvious to Opticians and others familiar with administering medicine to a persons eyes.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

In a device for administering medicine to a persons eyes by induction, a flat plate provided with perforations in its central portion and a concavo-convex plate provided with a central perforation and the two plates united at their edges to produce a chamber, a second chamber produced in the same way, an absorbent material in each chamber, the two chambers connected by a bridge-piece to fit over a persons nose and means for securing the device over a persons eyes, for the purposes stated.
