Of infection of the eie through indurate bloud, chap. 17.
THE eien haue another passion that defileth them, and that is infection of bloud. Constantine ralleth it a croust of bloud, and it bréedeth when bloud commeth by anye happe to the eyen, and is dryed as a croust. Also it happe∣neth that bloud woseth out of the veins and of the pipes, and commeth to the eyen: And some veines are broke or be hurt in the kirtell that is called Con∣iunctiua: And then such default in the eye commeth of bloud that commeth so to the eye: Coluer bloude or Turtell bloude, dissolueth and departeth this bloud, that is so renied, as Constantine saith: So doth womans milke with insence, and so doth fresh chéese medled wt hony without salt, if it be done there∣to. Constantine teacheth many other ex∣periments and assaies.
On the eie lid groweth Ordiolus, like a corn, it cōmeth of corrupt bloud,* whose recourse is more to one place then to another.
