Everything about Keratoconus and its Ayurvedic Treatment

What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is a progressive corneal disease in which the cornea's spherical shape becomes thin and changes to a conical shape. In this disease, the light rays do not come to the retina precisely due to the cornea's disturbing shape. It leads to several visual disturbances.
Symptoms of Keratoconus
The common symptoms of Keratoconus are
- Blurred or distorted vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Frequent changes in the power of the glasses
- Eye irritation, etc.
Prakash Nethralaya follows a holistic approach and provides effective relief in all these symptoms with Ayurvedic treatment for Keratoconus.
Causes of Keratoconus
There is no specific cause for the development of Keratoconus. Eye allergy and genetics can play some roles in a few cases. Ayurveda explains Keratoconus by compiling the 'Krishna Gata Rogas' and 'Timira' spectrum of diseases.
Diagnosis and Keratoconus Treatment in Ayurveda
Vata dosha disturbance at the cornea level is the most precise explanation that fits this disease. The cornea is the site for Vata dosha. A further irritation in Vata dosha leads to various anatomical and physiological changes in the cornea. It alters the cornea's shape, making it thinner in the center, giving it a conical shape.
Ayurveda therapies like Netradhara, Nasya, Lepa over eyes, Shirodhara, and Tharpana are highly potent procedures that can prevent a check on the disease's further progression. Keratoconus eye drops are also used to relieve the patient from symptoms. Keratoconus treatment requires long-term monitoring of the symptoms with several diet and lifestyle restrictions.
Diet and Lifestyle Changes
All Vata increasing factors like refrigerated foodstuff, processed food, working on a computer and mobile screen for hours, late-night sleep, disturbed bowel habits, etc. are to be avoided. Healthy and balanced food rich in clarified butter (cow ghee), proper sleep, a stress-free routine, and good physical exercise will help prevent the vision's future deterioration.

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.
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.
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.
