New Obsession

My new obsession = eye charts. I love vintage medical charts and diagrams...they are peculiarly wonderful and great conversation pieces. Unfortunately the first two diagrams shown below are not up for ebay auction anymore...but one can dream!

The first vintage eye chart went for $46.00, and the Good-Light Professional Eye Chart never met the reserve, but had a Buy It Now for $85.00.

More interesting eye related diagrams - Snellen Eye Charts Pediatric and Adult Charts (the picture ones are neat), Vintage Stand-Up Fundus Oculi Charts, and Iridology 1904 Eye Diagnosis Chart.

For a cheaper version you can pick up a new Snellen Wall Hanging Eye Chart. There are several available with Buy It Now offers ranging from $10.00-$15.00. And for a really wild touch check out the Eye Anatomy Wall Clock - crazy!

It's amazing how normal everyday things can be taken as art once out of their element! I love it :)
