CAP. LXXIII. De Proptosi, seu Uveae procidentiâ
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, is here taken for a starting, or fal∣ling out of the Membrane named Uvea, when the Horney tunicle is either loosed or bro∣ken by a wound or an ulcer; and as this ma∣lady appeareth greater or less, so there are num∣bred divers kinds thereof, having names given Page 113 unto them from the likeness of those things which they do represent.
Si enim parva uveae portio procidat 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 dicitur, quòd formam capitis muscae habeat: But if the greatest part of the Uvea issueth forth, so that it over-reacheth the eye-lid, representing an Apple hanging by the stalk, it is then called 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 is, when the Uvea being so far thrust out of the eye-lids, becometh hard, and the hornie coat round about being brawnie, presseth it down, as if it were the head of a nail.
The cure of this disease is difficult, and the more when the Uvea comes most forth; si verò minor sit, ut in myocephalo, curationem admit∣tit.
Proptosis medicamentis astringentibus sine aspe∣ritate (qualia in Corneae ruptura suprà fuere propo∣sita) curatur; and if it be not removed by these, then it is requisite that we make use of the in∣cision knife.
