Ayurveda Management of Keratoconus

Keratoconus is an eye condition in which your cornea the clear, dome-shaped front of your eye gets thinner and gradually bulges outward into a cone shape.

A cone-shaped cornea causes blurred vision and may cause sensitivity to light and glare. Keratoconus usually affects both eyes. However, it can affect one eye more than the other. It generally begins to affect people between the late teens and 30 years of age. The condition may progress slowly for 10 years or longer.

KeratoconusSymptoms of Keratoconus:

Symptoms usually start to occur in people who are in their late teens and early 20s and may include:

  • Mild blurring of vision
  • Slight distortion of vision
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • Glare
  • Mild eye irritation

Ayurveda treatment of Keratoconus:

According to Ayurveda, Keratoconus is caused due to vitiation of vata dosha. Cornea is the site of vata dosha (i.e. why it is rich in nerve supply and no blood supply). Vitiated vata dosha alters the shape of cornea making it thinner in the center, giving it a conical shape. Ayurvedic treatments help to arrest the degeneration process and reduce the symptoms.

The major treatment procedures done for treatment of keratoconus are

  • Nethradhara
  • Pindi
  • Anjanam
  • Shirodhara
  • Netra Tharpanam
  • Aschotanam
  • Nasya
  • Lepa
  • Basti
  • Putapaaka
  • Purampada
  • Vidalaka
  • Shirovasti
  • Internal medicines

These procedures are done in presence of an expert Ayurvedic eye specialist. The total duration of these treatments is by hospitalization of approximately 2- 3 weeks duration. 2-4 courses are mandatory at an interval of approximately 3-6 months in most of the cases to get the maximum benefits out of this Ayurvedic treatment.

Ayurveda therapies like Virechana, Netradhara, Nasya, Lepa over eyes, Shirodhara, Basti and Tharpanam are highly potent procedures that can prevent a check on the disease’s further progression. Keratoconus treatment requires long-term monitoring of the symptoms with several diet and lifestyle restrictions.
