CAP. LXVI. De Phlyctaenis, seu Pustulis corneae.
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, seu Pustulae, are little risings, com∣mon to the Adnata and Cornea tunicles, like the grain or seeds of Millet, arising from a sharp, serous, or wheyish humor, lifting up the Mem∣branes.
Phlyctaenae in Adnata minus periculosae sunt, quàm in Cornea. The more superficial these Pu∣stules be, the less dangerous they are, the more inward, the more desperate; for it is to be fear∣ed, lest the whole thickness of the Cornea be ero∣ded, and so either the watery humour will flow forth, or else the Uvea start out.
Saccharum Saturni (or Sugar of Saturn) with the water of Eye-bright, is (here) of all reme∣dies the best and chiefest: You may frame your Medicine thus: ℞ Aquae euphrasiae, ℥ i. aquae rosarum, ℥ i. ss. sacchari saturni, gr. xv. tutiae praeparatae, ℈. ss. misce, & utere.
