Visuddhimagga XIV-48

Vuttampi cetaṃ dhammasenāpatinā –
Ñ(XIV,48): And this is said by the General of the Dhamma:

‘‘Yena cakkhupasādena, rūpāni manupassati;
Parittaṃ sukhumaṃ etaṃ, ūkāsirasamūpama’’nti.
由于眼净, 随观诸色,
既小而细, 如虱之头。
Ñ: 'The sensitivity with which he sees a visible object
Is small and it is subtle, too, no bigger, than a louse's head'(?).
