Ophthalmology traditional medicine

According to Ayurveda the eye is created and maintained by the Fire Element.  As such, the eye is adversely affected by excess heat, and just as the tears of the eye, as well as the aqueous and viteous humors function to nourish and cool the eye, Ayurveda recommends supportive measures to balance the Fire Element.  This includes hygienic measures such as washing the face three to four times a day, taking regular baths, a healthy diet, living and working in areas with adequate ventilation or outside in the fresh air, and the ancient practice of peering at the cooling rays of the moon.

 

There are various ways with which Ayurveda advocates to treat these eye disorders, these can be subdivided into basic two groups, viz. local therapies (Bahyopachara) & internal therapies (Abhyantar upachara). Internal therapies consists of various drugs/medicaments in the forms of Guggulu, Vati, Guti (tablets or pills), Choorna (mono herbal or polyherbal or herbo mineral combinations in the form of powders), Kwatha or Kashaya (Decoctions), Swarasa (fresh juices of medicinal herbs), Lehyam (Linctus) and Siddha Ghritam (medicated ghee).where as Local therapy consists of various options those are to be performed on the diseased eye.

 

They are Ashchotana (eye drops), Anjan (to be applied on conjunctival bed), Nasya (medicine to be instilled inside nose), Tarpan ( liquefied medicated ghee to be retained over open? or rather blinking eyes for a specified period in a specific way), Netradhara (pouring of warm decoction over closed eyelids), Lepa (application of paste of medicated powders over closed eye) etc. These therapies are to be performed in different combinations for different ophthalmic disorders
