CAP. LXV. De Albugine.
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, seu Albugo, is a white spot, ren∣dring the Cornea tunicle so thick, that there is denied all manner of passage unto the visible species.
As to the Prognostick; An Albugo which comes of flegm, or a thick humor remaining af∣ter an Ophthalmy, is easily cured, praesertim si inveterata non sit; but that which cometh after a wound, or an ulcer, and is a scar, is very hard∣ly cured, especially in those that are ancient.
The following decoction is much commended in Albugo.
℞ Rad. althaeae ℥ i. foliorum malvae, euphrasiae, chelidoniae maj. ana, m. i. sem. lini & foenu∣graeci, ana, ʒ iii. florum meliloti, P. i. Fiat deco∣ctio in aqua fontis, cujus vapor recipiatur in ocu∣lum manè & serò.
Also the water of Honey, prescribed in the preceding Chapter de Nebula, is very good to take away all blemishes in the eye, si usus illius diu continuetur.
