Let’s Know about Corneal Scar

Our eyes are protected by an invisible layer called the cornea. Its primary function is to keep away dirt, infections, germs, and scars away. However, injuries, surgeries, and certain infections may disturb its original formation resulting in scars and ulcers. It is a severe condition and must be treated with immediate effect. Ayurveda offers an effective and natural treatment for corneal ulcers that works effectively without any side effects. 

What Is Corneal Scar?

Corneal Scar is also known as pink eye. The cornea is an integral part of the eye. It is your eye’s clear, protective outer layer. It helps the eye to focus properly and causes the involuntary reflex for the eyelids to close. Along with the sclera (the white portion of your eye), the cornea serves as a barrier against dirt, germs, and other things that can cause damage. It also plays a key role in vision. As light enters your eye, it gets refracted, by the cornea’s curved edge. This helps determine how well your eye can focus on objects near and far away. If your cornea is damaged by any kind of disease, infection, or injury, the resulting scars can affect your vision. They might block or distort light when it enters your eye.

Diagnosis of Corneal Scar

Diagnostic tests for corneal scars are completed in an outpatient setting. Your eye doctor will first talk about recent eye injuries, symptoms, and medical history. Next, your ophthalmologist will conduct an eye exam. During the exam, he or she will look for abrasions and irritating debris that may be caught beneath your eyelids. He or she may use magnifying tools, such as a slit lamp or ophthalmoscope, to get a better view of your eye. Your doctor may also use a painless process called a fluorescein eye stain, in which dyed eye drops and blue light are used to visualize your cornea in a better way.

Causes of Corneal Scar

Corneal scars may be caused by the following:

  2. Most cases of corneal ulcers are due to a bacterial infection that invades the cornea — often following an eye injury, trauma or other damage.
  3. Another major cause of corneal ulcer is herpes simplex virus infection, which can damage the exterior and sometimes even deeper layers of the eye’s surface.
  4. Genetics – One may inherit this disease from the parents.
  5. Chemical burns or other caustic (damaging) solution splashes can injure the cornea and lead to corneal ulceration.

    • Indoor allergens like dust and dander
    • Outdoor allergens like pollens
    • Irritants like smoke and perfume

Corneal Scars Treatment in Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, the emphasis is given to the complete human body including its vital parts like the brain. Through Ayurveda, most eye diseases are curable with an effect that lasts for a very good period of time. Prakash Nethralaya has an extensive ayurvedic program for various eye treatments including the corneal scarring treatment in Ayurveda.
According to Ayurveda, Corneal scarring is caused due to vitiation of Vata dosha. The 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 the cornea making it irregular in shape. Ayurvedic eye treatment of corneal scars arrests the degeneration process and reduce the symptoms. The major corneal scarring treatment procedures are as follows:

Preventions for Corneal Scar

The cornea is very important for the eye. A healthy cornea is needed for a healthy eye and we can prevent corneal scarring by following steps:

  1. Follow strict hygiene guidelines if you wear contact lenses. Improper use of these lenses is the main reason for developing corneal scars.
  2. Don’t sleep with contact lenses in, even if they’re FDA approved for it. This habit greatly raises your risk of cornea infections.
  3. Always wash and dry your hands before handling the lenses. Never use saliva to lubricate your lenses because the bacteria from your mouth can harm your cornea.
  4. You can’t prevent diseases that you get from your parents (like dystrophies). But you can cling to your vision if you find them early and take the measures.

The Benefits of Ayurveda for Corneal Scar treatment at Prakash Nethralaya

Investigates The Root Cause

The Ayurvedic approach to illness looks for the fundamental causes of the disease rather than symptoms. The main causative factor of the disease is removed from the patient's daily routine. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment is decided from the available two directions as per the classics. First one is Shodhan (detoxification) to clean the body with the help of Panchakarma therapies and the another is Shaman (balancing the doshas) by using Ayurveda medicines, diet correction and lifestyle adjustments. Detoxification with Panchakarma improves the efficacy of Ayurveda medicines in chronic and advanced cases.

Medicines Are Safe To Take

Ayurveda medications are not manufactured in a synthetic or chemical form but in their natural state. Because of this, the herbs are gentle on the body, and there is no chance of side effect or adverse reactions, regardless of the length of time the patient takes them. At Prakash Nethralaya, we use the best quality Ayurveda medicines to ensure the safest and fastest recovery. There is in house processing and dispensing of the medicines for our patients. A few medicines are made available from the good manufacturing companies also.

Uses Holistic Strategy

Ayurveda is based on the idea that each person has a distinct personality and body type and, as a result, their treatment. Ayurveda places more emphasis on treating the patient rather than treating the ailment. The physical composition of two different people with the same ailment may need a different therapeutic approach. An Ayurveda expert at Prakash Nethralaya uses this body type analysis and then reaches at a conclusion of diagnosis and the line of treatment. Accordingly our doctors prescribe the diet, lifestyle changes, yoga, Ayurveda medicines, and Panchakarma therapies.
