Light of Modern Science through Traditional Plant Remedies

The administration of eye problems by chemical drugs with no side effects is yet to test for therapeutic framework. But the natural and traditional medicines can possibly defeat the confinements related with regular medications. Accordingly; numerous endeavors have been made to distinguish new therapeutic plants from various sources due to their viability, less symptoms and generally minimal effort. Around 200 plants worldwide have been recorded to help treatment of eye issue.

The investigation ‘A REVIEW ON AYURVEDIC MEDICINAL PLANTS FOR EYE DISORDERS FROM ANCIENT TO MODERN ERA’ reveals that, in the Ayurvedic system of medicine mentioned in ancient Indian books (Charak Samhita, Sushrut Samhita, Bhav prakasha, Ras Tarang, Nayan Drastam and Astanghrida) there are so many plants used in ophthalmic disorders. In Ayurveda (Indian system of medicine) various vision disorders like Adhimanth (Glaucoma), Abhishyand (Conjunctivitis), Timir (Cataract), etc. have been described. Their etiology and treatments have also been discussed well. Different herbal drugs in various dosage forms like extract, arkas (aqueous distillate), kajal (collerium), and fomentation and washing with various extracts have also been noticed frequently. In another examination named ‘Traditional Medicine in Oman: Its Role in Ophthalmology’ shows that, a patient was a computer professional with a chalazion. The patient used a plant extract from ‘Calotropis procera’ for the treatment. Corneal edema was developed with decreasing vision in his left eye. Then after treatment with antibiotics and topical steroids, he had a complete visual recovery. Recently another study named ‘Traditional Medicines in Africa: An Appraisal of Ten Potent African Medicinal Plants’ demonstrates that, A. ferox plant has severe traditional and reported medicinal uses. It has a laxative effect and is most popular as a topical application to the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. A. ferox gel consists of at least 130 medicinal agents with antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiviral, antiparasitic, calming, germicidal, antitumour, and anticancer effects encompassing all the traditional and scientific studies done. Centella asiatica also is a medicinal plant which is used since prehistoric times, as it has a pan-tropical distribution and is used in several healing cultures, including Ayurvedic medicine, African traditional medicine, Chinese traditional medicine and Japanese traditional medicine (Kampo).

Acute Vision Loss, Threat to Eye: Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease that causes damage to eye's optic nerve over time. It is linked to the pressure inside the eye. The increased pressure, or the intraocular pressure, damages the optic nerve. The optic nerve transmits images to the brain. On the off chance that the harm proceeds with, glaucoma can prompt permanent vision loss. It usually has a tendency of being inherited and may not also show up until later in life. But if mistreated, glaucoma can cause changeless visual deficiency inside a couple of years. Glaucoma treatment depends on the nature and seriousness of each case. Typically, it cannot be cured, but it can be overseen. Several innovative studies are coming upon the threat disease of eye named Glaucoma.

Recently a study named “Measurement of Intraocular Pressure by Patients with Glaucoma” demonstrates that, out of 100 patients 73% could perform self-tonometry utilizing a bounce back tonometer and get intraocular weight estimations inside 5 mm Hg of a clinician. Self-tonometry was judged simple and agreeable by most patients; most were cheerful to perform self-tonometry later on. This information propose that self-tonometry offers a possible technique for measuring intraocular weight changes in glaucoma. Additionally, in another examination named “Development of an 18-Item Measure of Symptom Burden in Patients with Glaucoma from the Collaborative Initial Glaucoma Treatment Study’s Symptom and Health Problem Checklist” shows that, out of 607 patients with open-point glaucoma, factor investigation was utilized to determine an 18-thing survey from the 43-thing Symptoms and Health Problems Chart utilized as a part of the Collaborative Initial Glaucoma Treatment Study. The new survey's 2 subscales catch neighborhood eye and visual capacity side effects, exhibit sound inward consistency, and are receptive to measures of glaucoma seriousness. The investigation “Association of Dietary Fatty Acid Intake with Glaucoma in the United States” was going on the topic that ‘Does an association exist between daily dietary intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially ω-3 fatty acids, and the risk of glaucoma in the US population?’ Subsequently, it was discovered that, in a cross-sectional populace investigation of 3865 members, expanded every day levels of eicosapentaenoic corrosive and docosahexaenoic corrosive admission were related with altogether bring down dangers of glaucoma. Day by day levels of aggregate polyunsaturated unsaturated fat admission in the higher quartiles, be that as it may, were related with fundamentally expanded chances of having glaucoma. This shows longitudinal investigations or randomized clinical trials evaluating potential ω-3 unsaturated fat (eicosapentaenoic corrosive and docosahexaenoic corrosive) security against glaucoma are justified.
