Case Study on Ayurvedic Treatment of Congenital Cataract


A normal cataract may be defined as clouding and gazing of completely transparent lens which is present inside the eye. The major effects of this disease can be blurred vision which feels like as if the patient is looking through a frosted glass.

Congenital Cataract is something, which is present in the individual at the time of birth. If the affect of the disease is shown within initial six months then this disease is termed as ‘infantile cataract'. When the affect of this disease is seen in one eye then it is known as unilateral cataract, and when it is seen on both the eyes then it is termed as bilateral cataract. The children, who are suffering from this disease in one eye, generally have good vision in another eye.

A 4 years old girl named Akshita came up with her parents in our hospital for the purpose of regular check-up of her eye because she was coming across some sort of strange rapid eye movement. So we started the proper check-up of her eye, then after seeing the symptoms we came to a conclusion that the girl is suffering from the disease of Congenital Cataract. The unusual change in her eyes was clearly visible. It seems that she was very much affected by the bad impact of the disease. Just to know about the proper condition of the syndrome we started the internal check-up, so that we can easily clear all the pros and cons of the syndrome. After the internal check-up we realize that the girl needs extra attention.

Dr. Dinesh Sharma who is the HOD and senior doctor of Prakash Nethralaya and Panchkarma Kendra, advised the parents of the girl to get a proper treatment of Congenital Cataract, with the help of Ayurvedic medicines. This is because the Ayurvedic medicines are made up of herbal products which are extremely safe for a small girl like Akshita. The best thing with these medicines is that they are prepared in an herbal manner, so there is no side-effect in taking it.

Akshita's parents feel very relaxed after hearing that their daughter and doesn't have to undergo any kind of surgery for the treatment of Congenital Cataract.
