5 effective Ayurvedic remedies to improve eye health

Televisions, laptops, cell phones and other gadgets are becoming a necessary part of everyday life. This growing dependence has exposed our eyes to potentially dangerous radiation. Extended screen exposure can cause a variety of eye strain symptoms, including headaches, dry eyes and dark circles.

Here are 5 effective Ayurvedic remedies to improve eye health


1. Triphala

Triphala is an age-old treatment that combines three fruits and is renowned for its ability to enhance vision. Antioxidants included in it help to protect the eyes from oxidative stress while promoting the growth of ocular tissues. Triphala is a plant that works well for a variety of eye conditions. It may be taken orally or used as an eye wash.

2. Trataka

‘Trataka,’ an Ayurvedic eye practice, involves staring at a burning ghee lamp. Spend 10 minutes of your day sitting in a dark room with a ghee lamp placed so that the flame is visible at a 30-degree angle while maintaining a steady gaze on it. You can strengthen your eyes and enhance your eyesight by doing this.

3. Kriyakalpa

Kriyakalpas are Ayurvedic eye treatments that include medicated ghee and other formulations. Treatments for maintaining eye health with several Kriyakalpa remedies, including Tarpana, Putapaka, Seka, Anjana, Aschyotana, Pindi and Bidalaka, are successful.

4. Regular Head Massage

Massaging your head increases blood circulation and relaxes the eye muscles, which stimulates the tear glands. Massage your head with coconut oil or essential oils.

5. Washing Eyes With Cold Water

Your vision will improve greatly if you regularly splash cold water in the morning. This activity helps to eliminate mucus and dirt from the eyes. Cool exposure is advantageous because it causes the glands that lubricate the eyes, which improves overall eye health.
