In this humorous but sometimes serious early entry into the McDoakes series of comedies, Mr. average Joe is suffering from far-sightedness and is sent by his wife to an opthamologist to get corrective glasses. Other common eye complaints including myopia, astigmatism, and nervous tics are discussed in an informative but humorous manner. Written by

Middle-ground entry in the "So..." series has Joe McDoakes (George O'Hanlon) having trouble seeing and finally his wife is able to nag him enough into going to the doctor to see what's wrong. We then get a documentary-style explanation as to various eye problems, which might be facing the viewers watching the movie. These early entries in the series feature Art Gilmore narrating all the action, which leaves O'Hanlon without any dialogue. It seems fans are split on this but I prefer the later episodes where the actor gets to use that great voice to play off some of the comedy. WIth that said, this here isn't too bad as we get some nice jokes aimed at not being able to see including one very funny sequence where Joe is trying to play cards without much luck. There's another sequence inside a doctor's office where Joe can't see anything other that the nurse's legs.
