On the Use of Dionin in Ophthalmology

DIONIN is an agent which energetically excites the lymph circulation, quiets pain, dilates the pupil, and gives good results in cases of iritis with posterior synechiae. L. Dor (Lyons, France) compares its effects with those produced by sinapisms on the skin. Jocos (Paris, France) had obtained good results in cases of chronic iritis by using 0.5% solution of dionin.
