In each of these diseases, a regular loss of photosensitive retinal cells can be observed. These retinal cells are generally known as cones and rods.

A 25 years patient named, Anand visited for the regular treatment of his eyes. The problem which he was facing is that he was not able to see things properly. After the proper treatment, we confirmed that he was in torment of the disease of Retinitis Pigmentosa. His eyes were enormously affected by the disease. He was not able to see properly in night, which means that the disease had developed fully. After performing all the internal check-ups, there were many vital things which came out related to the problems and situation of his eyes; all this required extreme care and treatment. So, the HOD of Prakash Nethralaya and Panchkarma Kendra, Mr. Dinesh Sharma advised him to get two simultaneous Panchkarma therapies.

Dr. Dinesh Sharma is very skilled in performing Panchkarma therapy. So, he started the process in a very efficient way, so that the patient may not get afraid from the disease. He itself advised the sufferer to take Ayurvedic treatment because Ayurvedic treatment is regarded as the safest and most secure treatment since there are no side-effects of any medicine. After hearing this Anand got motivated and decided to go for the Ayurvedic treatment which continued for near about 6 months. Now, he is very satisfied with the treatment, as he is able to see the things properly, even in night.
