Abstract

It is my purpose in this short paper to give my personal experience only, in the use of jequirity in the treatment of the above affection; when used in picked cases, I know of nothing that will take its place. I have used it in all cases except the acute, with nothing but the best results. I have never seen an ulcer of the cornea follow its use. I have seen some few cases of xerosis after using jequirity, but none I could say positively depended upon, or was the direct after affect of, this medication.

Several years ago one of my assistants, while squeezing a case of trachoma, was unfortunate enough to become inoculated. This case was a peculiar one from the beginning. His eyes stood no treatment well; his corneæ were extremely irritable; all the mydriatics produced increased corneal irritation; his eyes were made worse by all treatment.
