Ayurveda treatment for Eyes at Sreedhareeyam

Eye treatment based on Ayurveda was not so popular the world over. However, with the concept that “Sarvendreeyanam Nayanam Pradhanam” (of all, eye is the most vital), we started exploring all possibilities for effectively utilizing the vast traditional knowledge in Ayurveda that our family “Nelliakkattu Mana” handed down through centuries, especially in Shalakya Tantra.

The Ayurvedic texts of Sushrut Samhita, Charak Samhita and Ashtang Hruday have given a detailed description of shalakya tantra. It offers a detailed study of etiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases that affect organs above the neck. According to the texts, there are about 76 diseases pertaining to the eyes

Sreedhareeyam specializes in Shalakya Tantra, and especially Netra Chikitsa (Treatment of Eye Diseases) aided by extensive knowledge that was handed down in the family through the ages and polished with clinical experience.

Walk into Sreedhareeyam, and you find the latest of diagnostic equipment. It’s clinical and Optometry laboratories are equipped with most modern diagnostic instruments. 

Patients are examined by doctors using this equipment, and the diseases are identified. The diseases are reported in the terms used by modern medicine thus making it easier to document and follow up.

In the next stage, the identified disease is transformed into its Ayurvedic equivalent, by the senior doctors. The Ayurvedic treatment then starts. The treatment goes through several phases from preparing the body, removing toxins, herbal therapy and final crackdown of treatments to the affected regions.

Our method reduces over-dependence on any particular system in use and common as well as rare diseases get treated with unparalleled success.
