CAP. XLVIII. De Corneae & Adnatae Ulceribus.

ULcera corneae & adnatae tunicae, Ulcers of the Hon•• and Adnata tunicle, are wont to a∣rise from sharp corroding humours flowing in∣to the eyes; and sometimes they follow the Phlyctaenae, or little swellings which breed in the Cornea, but not till they break. There are di∣vers sorts of these Ulcers mentioned in Au∣thors:

〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, or Fossula, is a hollow, narrow, and hard Ulcer, without filthy matter.

Page  108〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, is broader, but not so deep.

〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, or Ulcus Coronale, is a round Ulcer in the white of the eye, neer unto the circle na∣med Iris, or the rainbow; it is white, neer to the apple of the eye, and red in the membrane con∣junctiva.

〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 is a deep, filthy, and crustie Ulcer.

The Ulcers of the eyes are dangerous, and hard to be cured, but more in the Cornea, than in the Adnata; an Ulcer in the Pupilla is more dan∣gerous, because, after it is cured, it will leave a scar, which will hinder the perspicuity of the Cornea, and so the sight will be hurt.
