Arnica, if the injury was produced by a mechanical causes, as blows from a whip, punctures, &c., and there is much soreness and inflammation, it should be applied externally in the form of a lotion of one part of Arnica to three parts of water, and the injured part bathed three times a day, at the same time it should be given internally.
Dose. Six drops twice a day.
Aconite, if there is much inflammation, and the eye is congested.

Belladonna and Conium may be used in alternation, if there is any dimness of the eye left.

Sometimes pieces of hay or chaff get into the eye and cause a great deal of irritation; of course the first thing to be done is to carefully remove them, and then apply some Arnica lotion, which in the majority of cases is all that is necessary to be done.
