I am 48 years old lady and using reading glass. I feel foreign body sensation in my eye. In the early morning, when I wake up, I face difficulty to open my eyes. There is occasional redness and pain also. When I consulted an ophthalmologist, I was told that I am having “Dry Eye” and prescribed artificial tear for external application for permanent use. Is there any treatment in Ayurveda for Dry eyes ?
Ans: There is treatment for dry eye in ayurveda. It is not a simple external eye drops, but a systematic approach. It includes oil application, nasal drops, external medications like tharpanam along with suitable internal medicines.
