FAQ on Ayurvedic Treatment for Retinitis Pigmentosa


1.        My problem was diagnosed as retinitis pigmentosa by 3 allopathic doctors. Now I am 45 years old. My vision is very poor. Night vision is the greatest problem. I can see only central objects. Peripheral objects are not visible. All the doctors say there is no treatment for this. My vision is getting deteriorated day by day. Can Ayurveda help me in any way ?

Ans : As you know, Retinitis pigmentosa is a very serious eye problem. It cannot be cured completely even in Ayurveda. But there is Hope. There are methods by which the retina can be strengthened and thereby increase the functional capacity of the organ. So, the deterioration/degeneration can be delayed, and can sometimes can be arrested also.


2.       I am an Retinitis pigmentosa patient, now 35 years lady. My son is 5 years now. I know that this condition is a genetic disorder and so I am afraid about my son’s vision. He is having some problem in distant vision and using myopic glass at present. Is there any method so that his vision can be protected ?


Ans: First of all, we have to diagnose whether your son is having Retinitis pigmentosa or not. Sometimes it may be only myopia. Anyways, treatments can be done to increase the health of the visual organ and thereby to protect his vision. Since he is a young boy, maximum result can be expected.
