Everything You Need to Know About Macular Edema & it's Treatment

  1. Macular edema (ME) is the swelling or fluid accumulation under the central part of the retina.
  2. A healthy macula gives us the sharpest vision and helps us to see the colors. With macular edema, vision gets blurry with faded colors.
  3. Diabetes, Age-related macular degeneration, hypertension, a retinal vein occlusion, inflammatory conditions like uveitis, side effects of certain medications, eye or brain tumors, retinal traction, certain genetic disorders, and high pathological myopia are the leading causes of macular edema.
  4. Distorted and blurred vision, sudden loss of central focused vision, dull colors, difficulty in reading and driving, the heaviness of the eye, and loss of contrast are the main symptoms of macular edema.
  5. A visual acuity test, Amsler grid, An OCT exam, and a fluorescein angiography test help understand the leaking blood vessels and diagnose macular edema.
  6. Macular edema is a recurrent condition by nature. There can be a relapse of the leakage even after successful treatment by several Anti-VEGF injections.
  7. According to Ayurveda, all three doshas, i.e., Vaat, Pitta, and Kapha, are vitiated in macular edema. A correction of the vitiation, correcting the underlying root cause, and rejuvenating Ayurveda medicines help heal the retina's leaking blood vessels.
  8. Ayurveda therapies like Thakradhara, Netradhara, Virechan, Pindi, Vidalak, and Tharpana, can prevent macular edema recurrence.
  9. High intake of refined sugar, salt, tobacco, alcohol, fast food, citrus things, spicy and chillies, chronic constipation, weight lifting, and fried foodstuffs can increase the chances of relapse.

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.
