Retinitis Pigmentosa is (RP) an inherited, degenerative eye disease that causes severe vision impairment due to the progressive degeneration of rod photoreceptor cells in retina. This form of retinal dystrophy manifests initial symptoms independent of age; thus, RP diagnosis occurs anywhere from early infancy to the adulthood. This primary pigmentary retinal dystrophy is a hereditary disorder predominantly affecting the rods more than the cones. The main classical triads of retinitis pigmentosa are arteriolar attenuation, Retinal bone spicule pigmentation and waxy disc pallor. The main treatment of retinitis pigmentosa is using Low vision aids and Genetic counselling. As such a complete cure for retinitis pigmentosa is not present. So a treatment protocol has to be adopted that helps in at least the symptomatic relief. In Ayurveda, the signs and symptoms of this can be compared with the Lakshanas of Doshandha which is one among the Drishtigata Roga. It is considered as a diseased condition in which sunset will obliterate the Drishti Mandala and makes the person blind at night time. During morning hours the rising sunrays will disperse the accumulated Doshas from Drishti to clear vision. This disease resembles Kaphajatimira in its pathogenesis, but the night blindness is the special feature. Since the disease is purely Kaphaja, a treatment attempt is planned in Kaphahara and Bruhana line. The present paper discusses a case of Retinitis Pigmentosa and its Ayurvedic Treatment.
