Lazy Eye or amblyopia disturbs the natural eye-sight as it interferes with the coordination between the eyes and the brain. The Amblyopia treatment in Ayurveda involves medication and Panchakarma therapies to relieve the symptoms and improve vision effectively.

What is Amblyopia or Lazy Eye?

Amblyopia or the lazy eye is a visual disorder that disturbs normal visual power. It is the result of a lack of coordination between the brain and the eyes. It usually affects one of the two eyes, and the eyesight of the other one remains undisturbed or better than the affected eye. In most patients below seven years of age, Amblyopia or lazy eye can be improved even up to 100% levels. Patients above seven years of age but less than 15 years of age can find some improvement in vision. Generally, Patients above fifteen years of age do not show any improvement. So, it is better to start looking for a lazy eye cure at an early stage.

Causes of Amblyopia Disease

Amblyopia or the lazy eye is a genetic disorder. The primary causes responsible for this condition are

  • Poor alignment of the eyes
  • The difference in the shape of two eyeballs
  • One vision being farsighted, and the other being nearsighted

What are the Symptoms of a Lazy Eye?

  • Poor visual acuity from one eye
  • Weak pattern recognition
  • Squinting of one eye
  • Focusing on the objects by tilting the neck

Prakash Nethralaya follows a holistic approach and provides effective relief in all these symptoms with Ayurvedic Amblyopia Treatment. It is one of the most widely accepted amblyopia or lazy eye treatments in India.

Complications in Lazy Eye Disease

Many try to look for lazy eye treatment at home, however, that is a dangerous idea. A number of complications are closely related to lazy eye disease:

  1. Blindness: If overlooked for long, amblyopia can lead to complete blindness of the eye it affects. The loss is irreversible.
  2. Eye Turn: It can also result in permanent loss of alignment between the two eyes. The condition is known as Strabismus in medical language.
  3. Central Vision: If it is not treated in childhood, the patient's central vision may remain undeveloped forever.

Diagnosis & Lazy Eye Treatment in Ayurveda

Lazy eye treatment in Ayurveda involves Ayurvedic medication, Panchakarma therapies like eye patching, Annalepana, Tharpana, Netradhara, and a few lazy eye exercises. The patient needs to take a minimum of 2-3 courses of Ayurvedic procedures in a duration of 10-15 days for full relief.

Lazy Eye Exercises & Lifestyle Changes

The patient must follow a healthy lifestyle and diet recommendations along with Amblyopia treatment in Ayurveda. Healthy foodstuffs that include green vegetables, nuts like almonds, fennel, and raisins, clarified butter (cow ghee) would help improve the vision quickly.

The use of junk food, unhealthy fast food, excessive fasting, and poor nourishment gives resistance to healing and should be discouraged. The use of electronic gadgets like tv, mobile phone, and computer with both eyes is harmful to the affected eye's vision. The patient can use the devices as exercise with one eye patched.

Frquently Asked Questions on Amblyopia

Amblyopia is a vision development disorder in which an eye fails to achieve the normal visual activity. If this disorder is detected early in life and specifically treated, then this reduced vision can be avoided. But untreated amblyopia can cause permanent loss of vision in the affected eye.

This disorder has partial blindness. There is blurred vision in this eye disease and the visual acuity is less than a normal person. The disease is not progressive in nature. Hence, it never causes permanent blindness.

This disorder is directly related to brain and eye co-ordination. During the development phase of a child, if the working of the brain becomes irregular somehow, then it affects the visual activity of the eye. If the treatment for amblyopia starts in the developmental phase of the child i.e. before 7 years of age, it can be treated easily with various ayurvedic therapies such as Netradhara, Annalepana, Abhyangam and Tharpana.

A few patients with amblyopia respond to ayurvedic therapies, and some patients can see some improvement. But the chances are always good in children below seven years of age. Amblyopia treatment in adults is quite challenging to improve the vision.

Amblyopia can be treated well with ayurvedic treatment which comprises of Ayurveda therapies over the eyes to strengthen the weak eye muscles and to stimulate the connections of the weak eye and the brain. The various therapies for ayurvedic amblyopia treatment include Netradhara, Annalepan over the eye, Netra Tharpana etc. These are associated further with eye patching exercises to cure amblyopia effectively.

It generally does not get worse over the period of time. This disorder if untreated, the vision in the amblyopic eye remains same except in a very few cases.

Why To Choose Ayurveda?

Looks for the Root Cause

The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. Ayurveda offers two ways of treatment; One is Shodhan, and the other is Shaman. Shodhan is complete detoxification of the body by Panchakarma therapies. Shaman is balancing the doshas by Ayurveda medicines, diet, and lifestyle changes. Ayurveda medicines always work better in a patient detoxified with Panchakarma.

Safe Medicines

Ayurveda medicines are processed most naturally and not in the synthetic and chemical form. For this reason, the herbs are soft on the body, and there is no risk of side effects even if the patient requires to take them for longer durations. The complete eradication of the root cause ensures the cure and prevents future health complications.

Holistic Approach

Ayurveda is not merely a medical science. Instead, it is a philosophical science too. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment. Ayurveda gives importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease. Two patients of the same disease can have different treatments because of the difference in their body constitution.
