- This is also known as long-sightedness and corrected by plus power lenses/glasses.
According to Ayurveda all types of refractive error comes under different types of Timir. Refraction is the combined action of Vata and Kapha Dosha. Kapha dosha should be controlled first and Nasya (Transnasal medication) is the best method. To clean the dosha from whole body, before Nasya, Snehapana and Virechan (Therapeutic purgation) are done. Then Tarpana, Seka and Aschyotana are done to reduce power of the lenses required to correct refractive errors. We at Astanga Ayurveda give complete ayurvedic eye care based on classical Panchakarma and Kriyakalpa procedures which not only reduces power of the lenses but also stabilizes the progression and gives quality of vision. Different types of Eye Exercise, oral medications and diet advice are part of the treatment procedures.
