Optimizing Eye Health: Ayurvedic Insights into Glaucoma Management


Glaucoma is a condition affecting the eyes. It is usually associated with the rise in the pressure inside the eye, a condition known as ocular hypertension. The natural treatment for glaucoma with the help of herbal Ayurvedic products can help to manage this disease symptoms. [1]


Glaucoma causes the damage to the optic nerve that carries signals from the eyes to the brain. 


There are two major categories of glaucoma: open-angle glaucoma and narrow-angle glaucoma. This classification is based on the state of the drainage angle in the eyes that regulates the outflow of the aqueous fluid, which is continually produced inside the eye. The condition is called the open angle glaucoma when the aqueous fluid can access the drainage angle and it is called the narrow angle glaucoma when the angle is blocked making the aqueous fluid unable to reach it.


The open angle glaucoma is further classified into primary open-angle glaucoma, open angle glaucoma, normal-tension glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma, congenital glaucoma, and secondary glaucoma. The variations of narrow-angle glaucoma include neovascular glaucoma, acute angle closure glaucoma, and chronic angle closure glaucoma. 


Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma


The common signs and symptoms of glaucoma are as follows:


  • Moderate to severe eye pain

  • Blurring of vision

  • Redness of the eyes

  • Gradual loss of peripheral vision

  • Light appears to have a halo-like glow around it


Natural Ayurvedic Treatment  options For Glaucoma


Below is the list of natural ayurveda herbs used traditionally for eye conditions like glaucoma. These herbs may help to relieve the symptoms of this disease and improve the vision of the patients.


Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa): Punarnava  possesses diuretic properties, which  can help to control this condition by allowing the drainage of the excess fluid from the eyes. This can help to reduce the intraocular pressure. [2]


Triphala: Triphala herb can be used orally and as eyewash. It can help to protect the vision by reducing the intraocular pressure in the eyes. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. [3]

Amla (Phyllanthus emblica): Amla may offers an natural glaucoma treatment in Ayurveda. It contains vitamin C, which can produces an antioxidant action. It can acts an eye tonic. It can improves the vision. [4]


In a research presented by Harpreet Grover et al highlights the uses of Indian Gooseberry in the treatment of glaucoma. According to the research the juice of Indian Gooseberry with honey can  be useful in preserving the eyesight. It can reduces intra-ocular tension.   


Guggul (Commiphora wightii): Guggul  can help to manage this disease symptoms by producing an anti-inflammatory action. It prevents inflammation in the eyes.


In a research conducted by Shweta Agrawal and Manjusha Rajagopala on glaucoma it was found that both punarnava and guggul can be beneficial for the treatment of this disease. A group of patients was divided into two groups A and B. Group A was administered with some ayurvedic procedures locally and then was given punarnava in the form of punarnavashtaka kwatha and guggul in the form of gokshuradi guggul internally for 52 days, and has shown good results in the symptoms of glucoma.


Curcumin: Curcumin can be used for an herbal treatment for glaucoma. Curcumin is an ingredient present in turmeric. It can acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and reduces inflammation in the eyes. It can be a strong antioxidant. It can help destroy the free radicals. The regular use of curcumin can improve the vision. [5]


Is Glaucoma managable In Ayurveda?



Ayurveda believes that Glaucoma occurs due to the disturbance in the Kapha dosha in the thick fluid surrounding the cornea and it can be avoided by correcting the imbalance of the Kapha dosha. The glaucoma natural treatment diet can be consists of foods that can maintain the balance of the kapha doshas. It also contains foods that provide the vitamins needed for improving vision.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
