Abstract

CLINICAL STUDY ON VIBHITAKADI GHRITAPAAN AND HARIDRADI ANJANA IN THE MANAGEMENT OF SUSHKAKSHIPAKA (DRY EYE SYNDROME)

Nikita Baghel*, Shamsa Fiaz and Prabhakar Vardhan

ABSTRACT

Dry eye syndrome is a common yet frequently under-recognized clinical condition whose aetiology and management challenge clinicians and researchers alike. It is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tears film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface. In Ayurveda this condition can be correlated to Sushkakshipaka. On the basis of etiopathogenesis, clinical features, complications and principles of treatment, Sushkakshipaka is much similar to Dry Eye Syndrome. Looking into the pathogenesis of the Sushkakshipaka it is a disease in which vitiated doshas are vata and pitta while affected dhatu are Rasa, Rakta, Ashru and Akshi sneha. Hence our treatment was aimed at vata-pitta shamaka and ras rakta dhatu prasadana and snehana and as per the treatment of Dry Eye Syndrome the treatment is designed to drug formulations increases the wet ability of corneal surface and stability of pre-corneal tear film prolonging tears ocular surface contact thus increasing the duration of action and penetration of the drug and interval of relief to patient. Keeping this concept in mind the present study was conducted, in which topical Haridradi Anjana and orally Vibhitakadi ghrita was administered in 20 patients for 15 days. The study reveals that the mixed therapy group showed better results than the group with single drug.

Keywords: Dry Eye Syndrome, Sushkakshipaka, Haridradi Anjana, Vibhitakadi Ghrita
