Treatment Of Suffusion, Or Cataract
Published 1988 · Medicine
When the cataract arises from the stomach, relieve with pills made of hyeris: but the other form, which is due to disorder of the brain, if susceptible to art, is treated by coccia pills to dislodge the phlegm in rue and fennel water. Prepare an eye lotion with juice of calendula and honey and gall of goat, sheep, cock, hawk or crane. The fluid distilled from honey, whether pink or ordinary, is potent, but that made from squill is stronger and the sagapenum should be duly tried, dissolved either in that water, or in infant’s urine or in fennel water: and use balsam or pounded bone of cuttlefish or white sugar. Apply massage often to the head, ligatures to the limbs, and cups to the neck to secure good flow of blood, and black caustic to the coronal suture. If the humour remains obdurate and does not yield with time, let an oculist remove it from the body.
