Excerpt from A Dictionary of Practical Medicine, Vol. 3: Comprising General Pathology, the Nature and Treatment of Diseases, Morbid Structures, and the Disorders Especially Incidental to Climates, to the Sex, and to the Different Epochs of Life

The former have been recommended principal ly by Continental, the latter by British, physi cians. The doubt has arisen chie?y from a physiological notion long entertained, although the grounds on which it is founded admit of a ready refutation. An intimate observation of phenomena - the'only legitimate experience should alone decide the question. Although my experience in this matter has necessarily been limited of late years, yet have I seen enough even of this complaint to convince me that fomentations with emollient and anodyne substances are superior to those which are simple, which consist only of warmth conjoin ed with humidity. Therefore, When the pain and intolerance of light are great, the disease somewhat advanced, or even established, warm emollient and anodyne applications ought to be preferred. Scum directs mallows boiled in fresh milk as a fomentation or emollient and anodyne vapours, to be conveyed to the eye through an inverted funnel. Mr. Mackenzie directs opiate frictions of the forehead and tem ples, and the eye to be kept under the in?uence of belladonna. Fomentations, with a decoc tion of poppy-heads and chamomile ?owers, or marsh-mallows and the vapour of warm wa ter, to which camphor and the watery extract of opium have been added, are generally bene ficial in the circumstances just stated. Dr. Smith remarks that, when the pain was not al leviated by blood-letting or by fomentations, much and lasting relief was procured by ex posing the eye, twice or thrice daily, to the steam arising from the following mixture brought to a boiling heat. It is now eighteen years since a nearly similar combination, but with much more opium and camphor than is here ordered, was prescribed by me with great relief in a case of the disease.
