Ayurvedic herbal treatment for retinal detachment

Updated: Mar 25

The retina is a thin tissue at the back of the eye which transmits visual impulses to the brain and allows interpretation of eyesight. A retinal detachment causes a separation of this layer from the underlying tissue due to various causes such as trauma, bleeding, severity of near-sightedness, medications or surgery. This condition can lead to complete loss of vision, and usually requires urgent surgical correction. However, surgery may not completely restore eyesight, and retinal detachment can recur.


Ayurvedic herbal treatment is beneficial in retinal detachment in several ways. Firstly, it can prevent the causes for retinal detachment such as reducing swelling, bleeding, and damage to the inner parts of the eye due to medications or surgery. Secondly, Ayurvedic medicines can be used to treat and completely heal the retinal detachment, especially in cases where surgery is not at all possible. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are given to correct the damage to the tissues in the eye, as well as to treat all the causes responsible for this condition.


In addition, special and simple Panchkarma procedures are adopted so as to treat neurological and metabolic imbalances in the body, which can cause and sustain the retinal detachment and its known causes. In addition to oral medication, simple procedures like application of medicated ghee or paste on the eyes, intake of medicated ghee, and Basti or enema of simple oil are given repeatedly. In addition, Ayurvedic herbal medicines which have a specific action on the eye, retina, the blood tissue, as well as the walls of the arteries and capillaries, are used for prolonged periods in high doses.


The overall combined result of these medicines and medical procedures is that retina detachment reduces spontaneously, its causes get resolved completely, and the affected individual gradually regains complete or almost complete vision in a matter of a few weeks to a few months. Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus provide significant improvement in the vision of patients affected with retinal detachment.
