Ayurveda is a philosophy of life with holistic approach which plays an important role in prevention of blindness. Prevention of ocular disorder and preservation of ocular health has been become essential, as changing lifestyle has resulted in many eye disorders. In Ayurveda, eye is considered as the most vital sense organ. Many diseases of eye may occur due to defective life style changes particularly in busy modern life.
