Ophthalmology

A plethora of medicines and treatment methodologies which are proved extremely beneficial in Ophthalmic diseases. All these are constantly evaluated through continuous research and clinical studies, which subsequently perfected the methods in use. The treatments are decided after identifying the diseases in the traditional way and at the same time confirming with most modern diagnostic equipment.

Diseases

Ophthalmology

AyurVAID Hospitals, the leading Ayurveda hospital in the country, has a separate, well equipped AyurVAID: Shalakya Tantra Department functioning under the stewardship of acknowledged experts in treating Shalakya infirmities and distress conditions. Shalakya tantra encompasses the treatment for the diseases affecting the body parts located above the neck. This branch of Ayurveda deals with the causes, diagnosis and curative procedures of the diseases pertaining to organs of the Head, above the shoulder – Eyes, Ears, Lips, Nose, Throat, Teeth, Skull, Central Nervous System and Brain. We deal with all diseases above the clavicle through authentic Ayurveda chikitsa, complete with modern documentation processes including evidence building, adherence to international evaluation parameters and recording of testimonials.

The word Shalakya in Sanskrit, means a probe. Therefore, by Shalakya tantra, it is meant that the treatment would be done using appropriate tools for ingesting medication to the affected parts of the body. The branch is also described as Urdhwangchikitsa. Urdhwang means the body parts above the shoulder and Chikitsa which signifies treatment.

Why Ayurveda?

  • Non-invasive.
  • Diagnoses and treats the symptoms and signs of the problem at the root cause level including contributory diet and lifestyle habits.
  • In addition, comorbidities of a condition as well as coexisting metabolic/systemic diseases are corrected and reversed through this specialised Shalakya branch of Ayurveda.
  • Freedom from steroids, and frequent antibiotic (local and internal) usage.
  • Freedom from being compelled to use ‘artificial tears’ lifelong.
  • Only medicines of natural origin are used
  • Ayurveda prescription includes by default a personalised health plan covering diet and lifestyle to ensure sustained health benefits post-treatment.

Instrumentation is used to establish the precise disease status from an anatomical, physiological, and bio-chemical perspective as expressed in the function of the affected sense organ.
