Diseases & Treatments
Generally Diabetic Retinopathy occurs a long time after the occurrence of diabetes. Usually both the eyes are involved. The main reason for this Roga is Prameha (Diabetics). If Prameha is not treated in time, the circulation through veins and arteries to the Netrapadalas will be decreased resulting in total loss of vision. In modern medical science, the retinal detachment and weakening of the optic nerve cause blindness. This, it can be see that Ayurveda's vision goes centuries back.
The connective tissues of the Retina are enlarged and rods and cones are weakened and finally degeneration occurs. Usually the disease starts in the outer layer of retina and gradually progress to the inner layer. If the degeneration is in the periphery, the full vision is diminished and when degeneration occurs in the macula, the central vision is diminished. The first symptom of this disease is night blindness.
Retinitis Pigmentosa is found to be a genetic disease which is mostly seen in children, born from blood-related parents.
A rare disease affecting the centre of the retian with gradual loss of eye sight. The reason for this disease is still unknown.
This is a condition when due to various reasons, the pressure in the eyes increases and damages the optic nerve. Patients may not be having any symptoms of this disease earlier.
This disease is common in persons above 60 years of age. Eyesight gets diminished with the formation of cyst. Increasingly, younger patients are being affected by this disease due to malnutrition, excessive strain on eyes etc. If untreated, the patient may even lose eye sight completely.
Detachment of Retina
Disease gets started from choroids. This happens due to any trauma of the eyes or some diseased condition of retina. Blood vessels of the detached part of retina are small in size and dark in colour when eye is moved. Detachment may be complete or partial. Partial detachment may progress to complete detachment in certain cases.
