Alexandra Feodorovna / Re: Alexandra and her Health Part 2

So Olga had bad eyesight if she was visited multiple times by Alexandra's ophthalmologist during 1902. Did they improve after 1902?

The doctor continued to treat Olga in the Alexander Palace and Peterhof later in 1902 and after.

Alexandra and eyeglasses and six year old Olga's eye exams in 1902

The new fashion in 1800s. In summer, women used umbrellas to protect the eyes. How did they protect the eyes in winter?

I am looking at Nicholas' diary to identify some of the photos. I have translated the new Alexander Park book and find it is interesting to see more of the park from that period!
