In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

GLAUCO'MA, n. [Gr.] A fault in the eye, in which the crystalline humor becomes gray, but without injury to the sight.

A disease in the eye, in which the crystalline humor becomes of a bluish or greenish color,and its transparency is diminished.

An opacity of the vitreous humor.

According to Sharp, the glaucoma of the Greeks is the same as the cataract; and according to St. Yves and others, it is a cataract with amaurosis.


GLAU-CO'MA, n. [Gr.]

A fault in the eye, in which the crystaline humor becomes gray, but without injury to the sight. Quincy. A disease in the eye, in which the crystaline humor becomes of a bluish or greenish color, and its transparency is diminished. Encyc. An opacity of the vitreous humor. Hooper. According to Sharp, the glaucoma of the Greeks is the same as the cataract; and according to St. Yves and others, it is a cataract with amaurosis. Parr. Dimness or abolition of sight from opacity of the humors. J. M. Good. "Glaucoma consists in a change of structure in the vitreous humor." "Arthritic inflammation of the internal tunics of the eye, (an inflammation commencing in parts most essential to the function of vision, in the retina, in the vitreous humor, and probably involving the choroid coat,) has sometimes been called acute glaucoma, this term being derived from the greenish appearance of the eye. It has been called glaucoma from another symptom, which takes place, where, without any enlargement of the vessels, without any very severe pain or absolute extinction of vision in the first place, the pupil exhibits the same greenish discoloration, a discoloration which obviously does not depend on a change in the crystaline lens; for it is more deeply seated, – it occupies the fundus of the eye, and you can only see it by looking at it, when you are standing directly before the patient, not by looking at the eye side-ways. This is called glaucoma simply; and it appears to me to be a chronic form of the same affection as that to which the term acute glaucoma is given. This chronic form of glaucoma is important to be observed; for it is liable to be confounded with cataract." Mr. Lawrence's Lectures on Surgery.


||Glau*co"ma
  1. Dimness or abolition of sight, with a diminution of transparency, a bluish or greenish tinge of the refracting media of the eye, and a hard inelastic condition of the eyeball, with marked increase of tension within the eyeball.

Noah's 1828 Dictionary

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

* As a note, I have purchased each of these products. In fact, as we have been developing the Project:: 1828 Reprint, I have purchased several of the bulky hard-cover dictionaries. My opinion is that the 2000-page hard-cover edition is the only good viable solution at this time. The compact edition was a bit disappointing and the CD-ROM as well.
