When it comes to eye disorders and Ayurveda, what immediately comes to the mind is some soothing eye drop. But the real story is completely different. Sanjeevan Netralaya has redefined the scope of Ayurveda with its advanced Ayurvedic treatments for various retinal disorders like Diabetic Retinopathy, Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa or Raycheekati, and Glaucoma complications. Let’s discuss Diabetic Retinopathy. People with high blood sugar levels are susceptible to Diabetic Retinopathy as the blood vessels in the retina get damaged over time. This causes bleeding in the retina and new blood vessels may also grow, damaging one’s eyesight. NPDR or Non-Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy happens at the early stage. Here tiny blood vessels in the Retina leak, making the retina swell. If the macula or the central part of the retina swells, it’s called macular edema. This is one of the main reasons why people lose their vision. Again, with NPDR, blood vessels can close off – a condition that is called macular ischemia. A person with NPDR is likely to experience blurry vision. PDR or Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy is the more advanced stage of Diabetic Retinopathy where new blood vessels start growing on the retina. This is called neovascularization, where these tiny, fragile blood vessels begin to bleed. If the bleeding is less in the retina, one may see dark floaters while viewing objects. In case the bleeding is severe, complete vision may be blocked. Also new blood vessels can form scar tissue leading to macular damage and a detached retina. Unfortunately, conventional treatments for Diabetic Retinopathy cannot cure the disease. With repeated Laser procedures and Laser burns again and again, there is progressive loss of peripheral vision, night vision, and color vision. And, in the same way, there are many complications with repeated eye injections like Glaucoma, optic nerve damage, and chances of retinal detachment which further deteriorates the vision.
Advanced Ayurvedic retina care involves healing the retina gradually. This treatment using best-in-class Ayurvedic medicines has benefitted many patients, giving them new hope. As alternate medicine is gaining popularity across the globe, Ayurvedic treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy is a preferred choice for many patients. No wonder Sanjeevan Netralaya has treated more than 6,00,000 Retinal Cases across the globe!
