    • Ans:  Field defect is one of the major problems in glaucoma patients. According to Ayurveda, it is due to the vitiation of Vata. Due to Vata predominance, your retina is getting weak and degenerated. Ayurveda can control the vitiation of Vata and thereby strengthen the retina. This type of management will benefit your eyes.
