ABSTRACT

Context: Eyes are indicators of the whole bodily constitution, visual defects tantamount to the obliteration of the world. Aacharya Sushruta has described 76 eye diseases. Among 76 eye diseases Shushkakshipaka is a Sarvagata Netraroga.[1] On reviewing the clinical presentation from the classical Ayurvedic text, Dry Eye Syndrome resembles Shushkakshipaka. The evaporative component of dry eye is generally ignored. MGD is now to be recognized the most common cause of evaporative dry eye.[2] MGD is defined as “a chronic, diffuse abnormality of the meibomian glands, commonly characterized by terminal duct obstruction and/or qualitative/ quantitative changes in the glandular secretion. It may result in alteration of the tear film, symptoms of eye irritation, clinically apparent inflammation, and ocular surface disease”.[3] In modern science artificial lubricant, topical antibiotics, oral tetracycline, anti-inflammatory and Steroid eye drops are being used for treatment of MGD. Despite the numerous possible treatment option for MGD, it is still difficult to cure the sign and symptoms. Hence study was designed to find a better solution of the Problem. Aims & Objectives: (1) To study the conceptual resemblance between Shushkakshipaka and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. (2) To evaluate the effect of Mahaushadha Sarpi Anjana with Yashthiyadi Kwatha (systemic) on Shushkakshipaka w.s.r. to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. Material and Method: 15 clinically diagnosed patients of Shushkakshipaka and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction were selected from the O.P.D. and I.P.D. of PG dept of Shalakya Tantra Rishikul campus, Haridwar (UAU).
