Ayurvedic Treatment Of Immature Cataracts and Glaucoma
Understanding Immature Cataracts & Glaucoma
A Immature Cataract is a cloudy spot in the lens of the eye that causes eyesight to deteriorate. Immature Cataracts can harm one or both eyes and develop gradually. Immature Cataracts are responsible for half of all cases of blindness and 33% of vision impairment globally. Immature Cataracts blind around 20 million individuals worldwide. It is the cause of blindness in 10 to 40 per 100,000 children in underdeveloped countries, and 1 to 4 per 100,000 children in developed countries. Immature Cataracts become prevalent as people get older.
Glaucoma is a set of eye conditions that cause vision loss by damaging the optic nerve (or retina). Glaucoma-affected eyes are referred to as glaucomatous. Glaucoma can be attributed to the increase in age, high eye pressure, a family history of glaucoma, and the use of steroids. Glaucoma affects about 70 million individuals worldwide. Glaucoma is known as the “silent thief of sight” because the loss of eyesight tends to happen gradually with time. It is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, after immature cataracts.

Ayurveda for Immature Cataracts
Ayurveda can aid in controlling and managing Immature Cataracts in a varied number of ways. The goal of Ayurvedic eye treatment is to lower aggravated system energies while also replenishing and strengthening the eye’s nerves and muscles. To treat Immature Cataracts, Ayurvedic herbal medications such as Maha Triphala Ghrita, Triphala Choorna, and Chandrodaya Varti are administered.
A diverse range of herbs can help cure Immature Cataracts, however, we at Dr Basu Eye Hospital follow a holistic approach. We provide our patients with complete packages containing eye drops (Isotine RB & Tonic) and capsules (ISO Amrit, Oxitine & Arjuna) which are prescribed only after proper consultation.
Ayurveda for Glaucoma
Glaucoma can be effectively treated with Ayurveda without any negative side effects. Ayurveda reduces eye pressure and restores functional capacity with herbal remedies and Panchakarma therapy. Virechana, Anjana, Netradhara, and Nasya are Panchakarma therapies that aid in the removal of toxins. Then, using medications and rejuvenating techniques such as Tharpana and Shirodhara, the lost visual ability is restored and the affected nerve is strengthened. Punarnava, Triphala, and Amla are some of the herbs used in Ayurveda to cure Glaucoma.
Similar to our approach to Immature Cataracts, we treat Glaucoma in a comprehensive way. We provide our patients with medication packages containing eye drops (Isotine GI & Tonic) and capsules (ISO Retinitis, Arjuna & Amrit) which are prescribed only after a thorough eye examination.
