Abstract

COMBATING REFRACTIVE ERRORS WITH AYURVEDA: NEED OF THE HOUR

*Dr. Shrawan Kumar Sahu, Dr. Rahul D. Ghuse, Dr. Ashok Kumar Sinha, and Dr. Sunil Kumar Pandey

ABSTRACT

Worldwide, uncorrected refractive errors (URE) are the leading cause of vision impairment and the second leading cause of blindness in developing countries. Visual impairment and blindness caused by URE in adults can have severe impact on social and economic well-being. Although there is ample availability of advanced technology in the form of different types of spectacles, contact lenses and refractive surgery, it is neither free from adverse effects nor cost effective and hence not suitable for people at large. Hence, there is an earnest need for a cost effective remedy of the disorder under discussion, which should be free from any untoward effect. Ayurveda, an ancient healing science may do this job, since this describes a group of remedial procedures and regimen fulfilling these criteria. This article is for the description of the same. Here, several clinical studies carried out on refractive errors at different Ayurvedic Institutes of India have also been presented. Symptoms of refractive errors are comparable with those of Timira described in Ayurveda and can be successfully alleviated by Kriyakalpa (specific ocular therapeutic procedures), Nasya (nasal administration of medicine) coupled with eye friendly diet and regimen.
