Everything About Macular Edema

Macular edema is the accumulation of fluid under the retina that burs and fades color for affected eyes. The Ayurvedic eye treatment for macular edema rectifies the condition with Panchakarma therapies, medications, diet changes, and lifestyle modifications. It is one of the most sought-after macular edema treatment in India.

What Is Macular Edema?

Macular edema (ME) is the swelling or fluid accumulation under the central part of the retina. A healthy macula gives us the sharpest vision and helps us to see the colors. With macular edema, vision gets blurry with faded colors. It is recommended to seek retinal swelling treatment as soon as it is realized. Delays may lead to irreparable damage to the patient's eyes

Diagnosis And Macular Edema Treatment In Ayurveda

A visual acuity test, Amsler grid, An OCT exam, and a fluorescein angiography test help understand the leaking blood vessels and diagnose macular edema. 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. According to Ayurveda, all three doshas, i.e., Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, are vitiated in macular edema. The macular edema Ayurvedic treatment focuses on the rectification of this vitiation. A correction of the vitiation, correcting the underlying root cause, and rejuvenating Ayurvedic edema medicines help heal the retina's leaking blood vessels. Ayurveda therapies like Thakradhara, Netradhara, Virechan, Pindi, Vidalak, and Tharpana, can prevent macular edema recurrence.

The Benefits of Ayurveda for Macular Edema 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.
