Abstract

EFFECT OF AYURVEDIC TREATMENT ON DRY EYE SYNDROME (SHUSHKAAKSHIPAKA): A REVIEW

Dr. Chandan Sharma*, Dr. Rozina Khoja and Dr. D. B. Vaghela

ABSTRACT

Dry Eye Workshop 2007, Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear 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 it can be correlated with Shushkaakshipaka on the basis of symptoms like Kunitavartma(narrowing of palpebral aperture), Daruna- Rukshavartma(hard and rough lids), Aviladarshana(blurring of vision), Gharsha(foreign body sensation), Toda(pricking pain), Bheda(tearing pain), Upadeha(mucoid discharge), Krichronmeelana(difficulty in opening the lids), Vishushkatwa(dryness), Shoola(crucifying pain) and Paka(inflammation). Vata is the chief culprit and other Doshas are associated with it. Present study is aimed to review clinical research works which were carried out on Dry Eye in Shalakya Tantra Department of IPGT and RA, Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar to find out the effect of Ayurvedic treatment. In these studies, Dashmuladhya Ghrita, Triphaladi Yoga as internal medicine and Vasanjana as locally and Anu Taila Nasya and Mridweekadi eye drop, Nayanaamrita eye ointment topically were used as treatment. These treatment modalities showed highly significant results in relieving the signs and symptoms of disease with no adverse reaction.

Keywords: Dry eye, Nasya, Shushkaakshipaka.
