Abstract

GLAUCOMA IN THE VISION OF AYURVEDA

Dr. Wasim Akhtar* (M.S) in Shalakya-Netra Roga

ABSTRACT

Glaucoma is called as Adhimantha in ayurveda. It is the complication of Abhishyanda (Conjucntivitis in modern science). Ayurveda also says that if Abhishyanda (Conjunctivitis) is not treated then it turns into a disease termed as Adhimantha (Glaucoma). The disease Adhimantha presents the features that are similar to those of glaucoma in modern science. Severe pain is the prime symptom of Adhimantha. Glaucoma is a symptomatic condition where the functional integrity of the eye is disturbed, resulting in characteristic irreversible loss of visual field due to persistent raised in intra ocular pressure. Glaucoma has been called the silent thief of sight. Adhimantha is treated with different sorts of Ayurvedic modalities including Netra Kriya Kalpa, Oral Medicines, Panchkarma. In modern science several oral medicines, eye drops and surgical procedures involves in lowering the increased Intra Ocular Pressure and treatment of Glaucoma is done like this way.

Keywords: Glaucoma, Adhimantha, Abhishyanda, Conjuctivitis.
