Emotions that Block

The eyes are the mirror of the soul. Aggressive thoughts and emotions blur the view of life. Everything appears in "dark tones" or becomes difficult to see at all. Man creates a world around himself, or in the case of sick children - parents create this world.


The difficulty to see distant objects is called Myopia. This condition is also termed as short sight - is a common eye disorder that impairs the ability to see anything unless it is held very close to the eyes. It occurs when light rays focus the images ahead of the retina instead of on the retina. This condition happens due to the disturbing shape of the eyeball.Myopia may cause problems in daily life. It is the most common cause of vision impairment in children and young adults. Usually, Myopia progresses as age and height increase. It gets stabilized at one level near 20-22 years of age when the patient achieves the maximum physical growth.

The cause of Myopia is - watching TV, working on mobile and computer screens, reading while lying down, reading in a moving vehicle, late-night sleep, and late waking up will increase the problem. 

Myopia is of two types:

  • Physiological Myopia - it is a simple case of nearsightedness that can be cured with the right kind of glasses.

  • Degenerative or Pathological Myopia -  it is a dangerous type of myopia that decreases eye sight with time. It is not due to simple anatomical reasons that can be rectified with simple measures. If overlooked or left untreated, it can lead to permanent loss of vision.

Ayurvedic eye treatment for Myopia offers a healthy and natural alternative to traditional treatments. Ayurveda includes therapies and herbal medicines that prevent the problem without any side effects. The goal is to permanently treat the problem - because treatment is focused on eliminating the root cause of the problem.

According to Ayurvedic principles, it is a Vata-Pitta predominant cause of problem. 

Ayurveda medicines for Myopia, eye exercises to strengthen the eye muscles, balanced diet & lifestyle, and Panchakarma therapies can prevent disease progression. Panchakarma Therapies like Annalepana, eye massage, Netradhara, and Tharpana are medically recommended methods of Myopia treatment in Ayurveda. Other therapies of treatment is Rasayana  and chakshushya -  the procedures strengthen the sclera and arrest degenerative changes in the retina.

Any Ayurvedi  treatment methods, required procedures and medications are tailored to each patient individually, according to the Ayurvedic treatment plan and the Ayurvedic doctor's recommendations.
