Eyestrain- Ayurvedic Treatment, Diet, Exercises, Research Papers, Yoga & Pranayama

Eyestrain is a common ailment that develops when your eyes become fatigued from prolonged use, such as long distance driving or staring at screens of computers and other electronic devices.

Eye strain can be bothersome. However, it typically doesn’t cause any significant problems and goes away once you rest your eyes or take other measures to ease your eye discomfort. Eyestrain symptoms may occasionally be a sign of a more serious eye issue that requires medical attention.

Symptoms

Nausea

Neck, back, or shoulder pain

Painful or irritated eyes

Dry eyes

Watery eyes

Blurred vision

Double vision

Light sensitivity

Difficulty focusing on tasks

Difficulty reading

Causes

Typical reasons of eye fatigue include:

Exposure to dry interior air brought on by HVAC systems

General exhaustion and stress that impairs your ability to concentrate

Underlying vision issues, such as unfixed refractive errors

Prolonged use of digital devices

Continual long-term reading

Driving a long distance

Pathophysiology

The most plausible explanation is that poor viewing conditions induce the orbicularis oculi muscle’s orbital part to contract, which causes the eyelids to squint in an effort to improve eyesight. It has been demonstrated that this causes a secondary reduction in eye lid blinking, leading to dry eye diseases.

Diagnosis

A doctor’s diagnosis of eye strain is based on the patient’s history and the lack of any major eye conditions. There are no precise tests to demonstrate that eye strain is the cause of the symptoms. The degree of eye strain cannot be measured scientifically.

Treatment

Letting the eyes rest.

Raising the room’s humidity and altering the workspace to lessen reflections, glare, and strong lighting.

Putting on the appropriate prescription eyewear or changing the typeface. Large-frame eyewear reduces air flow across the ocular surface, reducing dryness. Conversely, using contact lenses makes the dryness worse.

Using commercially available fake tears

Prognosis

There is no eye harm associated with the eye strain symptom. The outlook is therefore excellent. The aforementioned methods typically result in the symptoms of eye strain being relieved.

Complication

You expose yourself to blue light when using digital devices for a long time, which could eventually harm your eyes. Blue light could lead to:

Your retina may be having issues.

Cataracts

Macular ageing and degeneration

disruptions in sleep

Eyestrain in Ayurveda

Description

All five elements are necessary for preserving the health of the eyes because they are one of the most vital organs according to Ayurveda. The muscle portion of the eye is governed by earth (prithivi), the blood vessels are governed by fire (tejas), the colour is governed by vayu, the white portion is dominated by water (apu), and the tear ducts and channels are governed by space (akasha).According to ayurvedic studies, an imbalance in the vata, pitta, or kapha doshas, one of the three doshas, is what causes eye disorders.

Causes

Dryness, blurred vision, and eyestrain are frequently symptoms of vata eye problems.

Burning, inflammation, yellow pus, and redness are all symptoms of a pitta imbalance.

Vision impairment, glaucoma, cataracts, thick pus, and wet eyes are all symptoms of kapha imbalance.

Netra basti

Netra Basti is a common Ayurvedic eye therapy in which medicated ghee is poured into a dough dam that has been formed around each eye. The oil enters the eye while the eyes are still open, curing a variety of conditions. If your eyes are itchy, dry, red, watery, uncomfortable, worn out, or swollen, Netra Basti is recommended. Additionally, this treatment is utilised to improve eyesight, stop retinal degeneration, and treat glaucoma. Please be aware that Netra Basti should only be performed by a competent Ayurvedic specialist, practitioner, or physician.

Tarpana: According to the nature and stage of the illness, specialised medicated ghee of choice (such as Triphala ghrita, Maha triphala ghrita, Jeevantyadi ghrita, Amalaka ghrita, Yashti ghrita, etc.) is filled within a well formed around the eyeball and retained for 5–10 minutes. Following this, the appropriate oleation, sudation, etc.

Putapaka swarasa – Similar to the aforementioned approach, medicated fresh juice obtained through the sudation (putapaka method) of medications such as Agasthya, Eranda, etc. is poured into a container before the procedure is completed.

Aschotana: 1-2 drops of medicated fresh juice, processed ghee, etc. are injected into the eyes.

Seka: Pouring fresh juices or calming concoctions will aid to reduce fatigue and strain.

Pindi-The medicinal paste placed over closed eyelids has been proven to be very effective in reducing eyestrain.

Yoga

  1. Cross your legs while you sit in the easy pose known as Sukhasana, keeping your neck, head and spine in a straight line. Breathe regularly while maintaining an eye-level frontal gaze. Keep your eyes moving up and down for two seconds. Take two seconds to close your eyes. Spend two seconds glancing to the right, left, and front. For 6 to 8 seconds, close your eyes. This ends the current round. Start with two to three rounds and work your way up to four.
  2. Combine the two palms. The right palm should be placed over the right eye, and the left palm should be placed lightly over the left eye. Avoid pressing the eyes. To relieve stress, take slow, even breaths in and out. 3 or more times.
  3. Bhujangasana (snake posture), Surya Namaskara (sun salutations), and Shavasana (rest position) are other asanas that support the eyes.
  4. Take a comfortable posture while sitting upright. Siddhasana, Sukhasana, or Padmasana are forward-extended poses where you extend both arms to the shoulder. This kriya improves mental stability and focus, fortifies the optic nerves, and treats eye weakness and some eye ailments. If done before going to bed at night, it treats insomnia.
  5. Engage in nadi shodhan (alternate breathing) pranayama to improve your vision. Always begin with the left nostril and finish there.
  6. Frequent blinking offers the eyes a little rest and moistens the eyelashes
