Ayurvedic treatment for Corneal Ulcer

Before delving into the topic of Corneal Ulcer, it’s essential to grasp its definition and specific characteristics. The cornea, being the outermost layer of the eyeball, plays a crucial role in transmitting light rays into the eye. Its primary functions are transparency and refraction. Transparency ensures unimpeded passage of light, while refraction bends light rays to focus them on the retina. This process relies on the cornea’s ability to remain clear and refractive.

Corneal ulcer, a type of lesion or injury, occurs when damage affects the cornea. Trauma, often from accidents involving sharp objects like pencils, can lead to such lesions. Unlike many other bodily tissues, the cornea lacks blood vessels, relying on aqueous humor and atmospheric air for healing. Consequently, when a corneal ulcer occurs, blood vessels from the surrounding area migrate into the cornea to facilitate healing. If healing occurs successfully, these vessels recede, but if not, they may cause opacity, impairing vision.

Symptoms of corneal ulcer include light sensitivity and pain due to the cornea’s highly sensitive nerve endings. Diagnosis is straightforward and can be done with a naked eye or torchlight examination.

Complications can arise if the ulcer affects deeper layers of the cornea. The cornea comprises five layers, each with its unique characteristics. The epithelial layer, the outermost protective layer, can regenerate if damaged. Bowman’s membrane, the second layer, poses challenges for regeneration if affected. Damage to the third layer, the stroma, can lead to permanent scarring and visual impairment. Complications become severe if the ulcer affects layers beyond the stroma.

The position of the ulcer is crucial, as central ulcers can significantly impact vision. Peripheral ulcers, on the other hand, may have less effect.

In severe cases, where the entire cornea is affected, blindness may result. Treatment may involve corneal transplantation, with synthetic corneas showing promise as alternatives.

In Ayurveda, treatment depends on factors like severity and the patient’s constitution. Initially, treatment focuses on pacifying Pitta, the dominant dosha associated with corneal ulceration. Later stages may require Kapha-pacifying remedies to address opacity. Medications with Chakshusha properties, specific to ocular health, are crucial for treatment success.

Early intervention is vital to prevent complications and preserve vision. Ayurvedic treatment, when administered promptly and appropriately, can effectively heal corneal ulcers and minimize complications. Consulting an expert and avoiding unscientific methods is paramount for successful treatment outcomes.
