Iron Or Steel Spiculae In The Eye





These occur while turning iron or

steel in a lathe, and are best remedied by doubling back the upper or

lower eyelid, according to the situation of the substance, and with the

flat edge of a silver probe, taking up the metallic particle, using a

lotion made by dissolving six grains of sugar of lead and the same of

white vitriol, in six ounces of water, and bathing the eye three times

a day till the inflammation subsides. Another plan is--Drop a solution

of sulphate of copper (from one to three grains of the salt to one

ounce of water) into the eye, or keep the eye open in a wineglassful of

the solution. Bathe with cold lotion, and exclude light to keep down

inflammation.
