Conjunctivitis or Pink eye means inflammation of the conjunctiva, the mucous membrane that protects the eyelids and covers the white of the eyeball. It is a contagious disease that appears mostly due to viral infections and can spread quickly. At times this could also happen due to certain allergic reactions or bacteria. Some Irritants like cosmetic detergents (Eye makeup, Contact coordinates, mascara, face powders are some of these allergenic substances) chlorination in water, allergic reactions to certain contact lenses by regular users are some of the causative agents.

Symptoms of Conjunctivitis

A person suffering from conjunctivitis can easily observe some symptoms of the disease after a few days. You must get in touch with an eye expert for early treatment. Identifying the symptoms of the syndrome early can formulate the recovery process fast.

Here are some pink eye symptoms to look upon:

  • Redness in the white of the eye or inner eyelid
  • Swelling of the conjunctiva of eye due to inflammation and rubbing of the eye
  • Red eyes result from irritation in the eyes.
  • Burning in the eyes
  • Itching in the eyes
  • Pain in the eyes
  • Swollen eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Thick discharge from eyes making it difficult to open eyes in the morning after sleep
  • Tears from eyes

Prevention of Conjunctivitis in Ayurveda

Ayurveda insists on personal hygiene for good health. These include:

  • Washing your eyes regularly after going back outside.
  • Clothes should be kept clean and neat frequently
  • Articles such as towels, combs, pillows, sleeping mats and soaps should not be shared with others to prevent such infectious diseases

Our sole aim is to eliminate the root cause of repeated infections and swelling in the eye. Ayurvedic medicines and lifestyle changes are used to cure mild symptoms of conjunctivitis. If the patient is getting infected continuously, longer treatment methods are prescribed by our ayurvedic which include Panchakarma detox therapies like Virechana, Vaman, Kizhiswedan, Snehana, Netradhara and Thakradhara.

Medication and lifestyle changes are strictly followed along with ayurveda therapies to ensure a long lasting relief for the patient. The treatment plans are customized and depends on patient’s age, medical history and extent of disease in mind.

Treatment of Conjunctivitis with Ayurveda medicine

As stated in Ayurveda, Conjunctivitis or Netrabhisyanda (Netra implies eye, while abhishyanda implies wetland) is mainly caused by the resistance of Pita and coffee doshas. Ie: eye is the dwelling place of the fire component Pita. But when the Kapha Dosha (water components) breaks into the eyes, it begins to attack the fire component of the eyes and turns it into a wet zone. Due to this, the eye health will be badly affected causing redness, thick discharge swelling etc.

Our personalized Ayurveda treatment consists of Eyewash, internal and external administration of ayurvedic medicine, Nethra Dhara (washing the eyes using herbal decoction), and Purification therapies like Virechana, Nasya, Rakthamoksha are also administered for conjunctivitis according to the condition of the patients.

Ayurveda proves very beneficial in the treatment of eye conjunctivitis with its holistic approach as it helps in nourishing every part and organ of the body by removing all the impurities and establishing a balance between Dhatus. Patients with conjunctivitis are also advised to follow healthy lifestyle postures in Yoga to strengthen eye muscle and to relieve stress and strain of the eye along with a healthy and balanced diet, regular exercise, etc.

Conclusion

Conjunctivitis treatment duration depends on the reason and state of the disease. The symptoms may subside within a week or two with medicines and therapies. However, if you are looking for a permanent solution then you must take the full treatment that goes from 6 months to 1 year and if you want effective treatment then you should take Conjunctivitis Ayurvedic Treatment.
