Let’s Know about Myopia (Refractive Errors)

Myopia is a common eye disorder that impairs the ability to see anything unless it is held very close to the eyes. It is not a fatal disease but may cause problems in daily life. The Ayurvedic eye treatment for myopia offers a healthy and natural alternative to conventional treatments. It includes therapies and herbal medicines that rectify the problem without any adverse effects. The best part, you recover the problem permanently as the treatment eliminated the root cause of the problem.

Mental Irritation

Myopia

The difficulty to see distant objects is called Myopia. This condition is also termed as short sight. It occurs when light rays focus the images ahead of the retina instead of on the retina. This condition happens due to the disturbing shape of the eyeball. It is the most common cause of vision impairment in children and young adults. Generally, Myopia progresses as age and height increase. It gets stabilized at one level near 20-22 years of age when the patient achieves the maximum physical growth.

Types Of Myopia

Myopia is of two types:

  1. Physiological Myopia: It is a simple case of nearsightedness that can be cured with the right kind of glasses.
  2. Degenerative or Pathological Myopia: It is a dangerous type of myopia that decreases eye sight with time. It is not due to simple anatomical reasons that can be rectified with simple measures. If overlooked or left untreated, it can lead to permanent loss of vision.

Blurred vision, headache after a strained activity, excessive eye blinking, and difficulty seeing in bright light and at night are Myopia’s main symptoms. Prakash Nethralaya follows a holistic approach and provides effective relief in all these symptoms with Ayurvedic Myopia Treatment.

Causes of Myopia

The disease is diagnosed by a simple vision test and a refraction test. After a trial of multiple lenses and observing the most precise vision response, an optometrist prescribes the glasses’ power.

Long eyeball, the curved cornea, heredity, and misuse of eyes are the probable causes responsible for Myopia.

The use of fast food, watching TV, working on mobile and computer screens, reading while lying down, reading in a moving vehicle, late-night sleep, and late waking up will increase the problem and should be discouraged.

Balanced use of clarified butter (ghee) in diet, green vegetables, seasonal fruits, nuts, yoga, and a sound but timely sleep will help heal the problem and be encouraged.

Preventions for Myopia

There is no way to prevent myopia but its progress can be slowed down with some specific preventive measures. Ayurvedic practitioners recommend regular use of Ayurvedic eye drops for myopia with some other precautions:

  • Try to increase your exposure to daylight. If you are on a desk job try to get out in sun for half an hour in the morning and evening. Sunlight plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of our eyes.
  • If your daily life involves intense periods of near work, try to get control over it.
  • Ayurvedic eye drops are an excellent alternative to western medicines that keep up the state of your eyes without any side effects. Visit your nearest Ayurvedic eye practitioner for the best suggestions.
  • Practice yoga regularly. It will really help in improving your overall wellness along with your vision.
  • Decrease your screen time on phones, laptops and televisions.
  • Try to include Vitamin A supplements in your diet. Supplements take their own time in improving the overall health, so be patient you will see the effects in few weeks.
  • If you are staying in a polluted area or your work involves exposure to harsh chemical fumes or chemicals, try to find some healthy alternative in both conditions.

Our Approach To Ayurvedic Myopia Treatment

Ayurvedic Treatment

According to Ayurveda, vitiated Vata dosha at the eye level makes the eye muscles weak. The eye muscles lose their strength to focus on a distant object. We at Prakash Nethralaya corrects the metabolic anomalies by Ayurveda medicines and dietary changes. Annalepana, Netradhara, Kizhiswedan, Nasya, and Tharpana are the procedures that can normalize the vitiated Vata dosha. Eye exercise is undoubtedly of great help once the Vata dosha settles. We have seen excellent results in patients who have glass power less than -1.00. Ayurvedic treatment for Myopia can prevent the further progression of the glasses' power in others. You can have a detailed discussion over online video consultation to know your case's chances of recovery.

Diagnosis and Ayurvedic Treatment for Myopia

The disease is diagnosed by a simple vision test and a refraction test. After a trial of multiple lenses and observing the most precise vision response, an optometrist prescribes the glasses’ power.

According to Ayurveda, vitiation of Vata and Pitta doshas is responsible for the pathology behind Myopia.

Ayurveda medicines for Myopia, eye exercises to strengthen the eye muscles, balanced diet & lifestyle, and Panchakarma therapies can prevent disease progression.

Children with a power of less than +/-1.00 show good improvement with the treatment.

Panchakarma Therapies like Annalepana, eye massage, netradhara, and tharpana are medically recommended and certified methods of myopia treatment in Ayurveda.

Diet & Lifestyle Changes

Along with the ayurvedic treatment for myopia, you have to make some diet and lifestyle changes in your daily routine for better results. The use of fast food, watching TV, working on mobile and computer screens, reading while lying down, reading in a moving vehicle, late-night sleep, and late waking up will increase the problem and should be discouraged.

Balanced use of clarified butter (ghee) in diet, green vegetables, seasonal fruits, nuts, yoga, and a sound but timely sleep will help heal the problem and be encouraged.

The Benefits of Ayurveda for Myopia 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.
