Myopia is an eye disease generally seen in young age where patients find difficulties in seeing objects at a distance.Myopia is also known as short sightedness. Research says this might occur due to the curvature change of the refracting surface of the eye or might be the refractivity problem of the eye.

Concave lens helps in relieving the patients from Myopia, but the user has to use the spectacles for ever.Recent development on laser technology might give patients permanent relief and allow patient not to use spectacles. If a patient is suffering from progressive Myopia, patient’s problem continues to increase though time and force the patient to change lens power as time passes.

Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myopia

As per Ayurveda if a person is suffering from chronic cold and constipation, he/she is more prone to get Myopia. Nervous system disorder is also known to be one of the reason for this disease.

In the initial stage patient experience blurred vision and gradually he finds difficulty in recognizing objects at a distance. Reading for a long time becomes a problem for the patient. Watering from the eye, itching, burning sensation and feeling heavy eyes are few symptoms patient might experience which might lead to headache and lack of sleep.

Ayurvedic Treatment

Ayurveda says, before even start treating Myopia, the patient is treated with the root cause of the disease like chronic cold and constipation.

Triphala is commonly used by Ayurvedic Doctors for the treatment of constipation, this also helps in providing nutrients for the eyes.One table spoon of the Triphala powder is mixed with a glass of water and kept overnight and in the early morning the water can be taken in empty stomach. Some times it may cause loose motion.Therefore it is recommended to take regulated amount to have one clear motion in the early morning. This medicine can be taken for 15 days continuously to fight against constipation. Patients are advised to continue even after 15 days to have a significant result on eyes.

Yashti Madhu is another medicine recommended by Ayurveda for the treatment of Myopia. One teaspoonful powder of Yashti Madu is mixed with 1/2 teaspoonful of  Ghee(cow ghee) and one tea spoonful of honey. This medicine is given twice daily in empty stomach.

Saptamrita lauha is an Ayurvedic  medicine available in the market made from above compound,if myopia is result of nervous debility Saptamrita Lauha is an excellent medicine. In this medicine Triphala, Yashti Madu, Lauha Bhasma, Ghee and Honey are used. Patient can take one teaspoonful of this medicine added with one cup of milk twice daily.

To fight against Progressive Myopia, Maha Triphala Ghrita is recommended. One teaspoonful of this medicine twice daily with milk is prescribed.

Diet

Avoid any kind of food that is difficult to digest. Any kind of sour,spicy foods are strictly prohibited. Take properly cooked and with minimum or no oil and masala(spicy) food. Avoid all fast foods. Cows ghee is a recommended food as it helps in improving eye power. Avoid all fried foods.

General advice : Try to learn relaxing and stop getting anxious about the eye condition getting worse. Don’t let your children fear of their eye conditions. Improve mental strength to learn that it can be cured or progression can be stopped if proper care is taken.There is no ailment/disease  in the world which cannot be cured if mind and medicines work together closely to complement each other.

Greenery has an immense good effects on eye and brain as well as on general health. Expose yourself to more and more greenery. expose yourself to morning sun ray. Start a yoga routine. Eat healthy and avoid alcohol, fried food, excess spicy food and stop eating food from outside eateries.

Never forget to visit a qualified and reputed doctor and take advise. Its worth spending few bucks for an extremely essential part of the body like eye. Do not be your own doctor and take any medicines found in the internet or in a book without a doctor’s examination/advice. Internet source/books should be treated as just reference and not as the final prescription and should be treated as a general advice only. As per ayurveda each and every body type differs and different medicines should be prescribed for different body type/condition.

      Hi,

      Most of the diseases are fully curable, but we need to believe on the system of medicines and believe on our-self that this can be cured easily. Believe can cure your disease 40% free of cost. Rest of the 60% can be cured by proper medication and or physical activities like yoga.

      Please visit a nearby ayurvedic doctor for a physical checkup and take medicines and follow other advices as prescribed by him.

      Wish you a quick recovery.

We will suggest you to visit a near by reputed well experienced(and qualified) doctor and get patient’s body(dosha) checked and get medicines prescribed. further degradation of eye sight can be definitely stopped using proper medicines and adopting yoga regularly.

      Wish you both a quick recovery!

  6. Neh'la says:

    Hi I’m studying Chartered Accountancy and I have been wearing glasses for 10 years. My prescription deterioted from -1.25D to currently -5.5D! I really hate wearing spectacles and I am SO fed up of them!

    Your site has given me hope and I’m really interested in more information. My problem is I don’t live in India and I do not have access to Ayurvedic medicines. Will I be able to see any improvements in my eyesight by doing yoga and modifying my diet alone?

  7. Darshan Shukla says:

    My daughter has progressive myopia and has power of -5.5 in both eyes and vision of 6/9. We have been taking treatment of Tarpan and administering the medicines perscribed in this article as per the prescription of a qualified ayurvedic doctor. We are also exercising the eyes per the recommendation of the book mind and vision under a trained trainer in aurobindo Ashram. But so far, we haven’t seen any improvement. Rather the power is increasing @ rate of 0.5 / 3month. One advice is not very clear that whether the patient should wear the spectacles constantly as adviced by the alopathy doctors or not. If she is not able to see distant objects and doesnot wear the specs, is it not likey to strain her eyes further and become the cause of increment of power ?
