Ayurvedic treatment best for curing glaucoma
Netravasti also known as akshitarpana is an Ayurvedic treatment best for eye ailments like glaucoma, conjunctivitis (ahishyanda Roga), night blindness and other eye diseases. To undergo this treatment, the patient is made to lie on the Droni. Medicated ghee is used in this therapy and two receptacles are built round the eyes to retain this medicine. The receptacles are built with black gram. These should be 1.5 inches high and totally leak proof. After the ghee is poured, the patient is asked to open the eyes slowly. The ghee is not kept for more than five minutes in the receptacles. Exposure to strong sunlight should be avoided soon after the treatment.
