CAP. LIX. De Chemosi.
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 is, when the eye-lids are, as it were, inverted, and turned the inside outward, so as the eyes can scarce be covered therewith, and the white of the eye, called Conjunctiva, stands out higher then the black, and the redness doth cover most part of the iris or circle.
Chemosis eadem remedia, quae ophthalmia, postu∣lat, sed vehementiora; because of the exceeding great inflammation, accompanied with most ve∣hement pain.
