Ayurvedic treatment for Lattice degeneration

Lattice degeneration is a peculiar type of degenerative changes in the retina. It has characteristic features and a specific pattern. Typically, these degenerative changes are observed peripheral to the retinal layer. The characteristic pattern resembles strands at an oblique level, forming a web-like appearance with holes in between, hence the name lattice degeneration.

Any degeneration in the retina is considered serious due to the retina’s importance in vision. Lattice degeneration, being peripheral, may cause relatively mild visual problems initially. However, if left untreated, there is a risk of retinal detachment, which can lead to significant vision loss.

In the early stages, lattice degeneration may manifest as holes, tears, or discontinuities in the retinal layer. Symptoms include visual field loss and phenomena like flashes of light or floaters, which are common in this condition

Age is the primary risk factor for lattice degeneration, often occurring in senility. However, it can also develop in conjunction with other ocular pathologies like macular degeneration or diabetes-related changes.

Treatment aims to address the condition in its early, potentially progressive stage to prevent serious complications like retinal detachment. Ayurvedic treatment follows the principles of balancing Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. In lattice degeneration, treatment focuses on nourishing the retina (Brahmana Chikitsa) and controlling Pitta to maintain the functioning of the retina.

Specific Ayurvedic procedures like Tarpanam, involving the application of medicated ghee, are effective in treating lattice degeneration. Additionally, treatments targeting the head region help regulate Vata and Pitta, crucial for maintaining retinal health.

It’s essential to seek medical attention promptly upon noticing any symptoms of lattice degeneration. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent progression to more serious complications like retinal detachment. Treatment may involve a combination of oral medications and external applications, tailored to the individual patient’s condition.

Monitoring and supervision by an expert ophthalmologist are crucial throughout the treatment process. Lifestyle modifications may also be necessary to reduce risk factors and maintain retinal health. Overall, early intervention and comprehensive treatment are key to preserving vision in lattice degeneration
