Ayurvedic Ophthalmology

Shalakya Tantra is a branch of Ayurveda dedicated to addressing ailments above the neck. Shalakya Tantra offers specific procedures for neck and head organs, such as Nasyam, Dhoomapanam, Gandoosham, and Shirovasthi, proving highly effective for various diseases, including degenerative and infectious conditions. Ayurvedic texts like Sushrut Samhita and Charak Samhita provide comprehensive insights into Shalakya Tantra, covering the causes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of head and neck diseases. These texts list around 76 eye diseases, 25 ear conditions, 18 nose issues, and 11 lip ailments, all of which Shalakya Tantra addresses thoroughly. It not only focuses on immediate cures but also ensures complete eradication of diseases through follow-up treatments.
