Ayurvedic Eye Treatment | Dry Eyes | Faq




  • I am 48 years old lady and using a reading glass. There is a foreign body sensation in my eye. In the early morning, when I wake up, I face difficulty to open my eyes. There are occasional redness and pain also. When I consulted an ophthalmologist, he informed that I am having “Dry Eye”. He prescribed artificial tears for external applications for permanent use. Is there any treatment in Ayurveda for Dry eyes?

    • Ans: There are treatments for dry eye in ayurveda. It is not a simple external eye drops, but a systematic approach. It includes oil application, nasal drops, and external medications. Tharpanam, sekam, aschotanam, etc are main among them along with suitable internal medicines.
