Blepharitis is one of the most common ocular disease in clinical practice. It is a subacute or chronic inflammation of lid margin causes Itching of eyes, Lid oedema, Redness in eyes, Foreign body sensation in eyes and Discomfort among people with all ages, gender and ethnicity. While the etiology and mechanism of blepharitis is complex and not fully understood also it has high recurrence rate which makes management more difficult. It may be subdivided into Bacterial, Seborrhoeic or squamous, mixed staphylococcal with seborrhoeic, Posterior(acute and chronic meibomitis) and parasitic blepharitis. If Blepharitis left untreated it may lead to many permanent changes such as trichiasis, poliosis, madarosis, tylosis and dry eye syndrome or vision loss from superficial keratopathy, corneal neovascularization and ulceration. Also blepharitis is a chronic disease and has high recurrence rate it needs prolonged treatment. Treatment of blepharitis includes combination of antibiotic and steroid eye ointments as a contemporary line of treatment in Blepharitis but they have their own limitations. The prolonged use of these medicine leads to resistance to antibiotic and steroid induced complications such as increased intraocular pressure, posterior subcapsular cataract formation and superinfections for this reason they are not recommended for long term. Clinical features of Blepharitis can be somewhat correlated with lakshanas of Praklinna vartma in Ayurveda and in the treatment Palash pushp raskriya varti is explained by Acharya Sushrut. Praklinna vartma is kapha dosha pradhan vyadhi with anubandh of Pitta-Rakta dosha and Palash pushp having Kapha-Pitta-Rakta shamak properties.

Keywords: Blepharitis, Praklinna vartma, Palash pushp raskriya varti, Anjan.
