As keratoconus is a condition of Cornea of eye where Corneal structure becomes weak and causes bulge due to normal pressure inside. In your case, if eye specialists feel that there is surgical emergency, it is better to undergo surgery.

Though it is not dangerous, you may need to go for glasses and only precaution to be taken is to prevent surgeries related to LASIK or Laser surgeries like anyone with minimal keratoconus also should not have laser vision correction surgery.

If your condition is mild, then with simple usage of glasses and lens may correct vision and the problem will gets solved but if it is getting worsen, then doctors may recommend corneal replacement surgery.

In Ayurveda, we do recommend eye friendly medications which are helpful to improve vision and to correct any minor structural problems if you take medications in long run, say for 6 months at least. Before this period if you are getting any emergency condition, it is better to approach Eye specialist and get treatments done.

Following medicines are recommended in your Eye condition such as: Divya Maha Triphala Ghrit one teaspoon daily early morning in empty stomach and you can also have Amalaki Rasayana one teaspoon after dinner and you can start with tablet like Saptamrit Lauh one-tablet after food, two times and you can put Al Shams Eye Drops two drops daily is also helpful. If you have any concerns on the same you can meet nearby Ayurvedic doctor.

Keratoconus is a progressive condition in which the cornea thins and attains a cone shape. It causes myopia and astigmatism, which will affect the vision. It is due to an imbalance in the enzymes of the cornea which is mainly due to hereditary reasons. In mild cases, glasses or contact lenses are advised.

Ayurvedic medicines like Pathyaksadhatryadi kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily and Saptamrit Lauh can be used for a month and then reviewed. Ayurvedic treatment known as Tarpana which means bathing the eyes with ghee is also beneficial which can be done in an Ayurvedic hospital.

Include cabbage, carrots, berries, spinach, broccoli, avocados, olive oil, gooseberry, pumpkin and sweet potatoes. Reduce excess oil, sugar, salt and pungent foods. Drink enough water. Gentle eye exercises like opening, closing the eyes, rotating the eye balls are beneficial. Avoid rubbing the eyes, anything that irritates the eyes and protect the eyes by wearing sunglasses.

Keratoconus is a condition in which your cornea in eyes is not strong to hold its shape and hence bulges like a cone. The fibers that hold together is weak. It is caused due to allergies, constant eye rubbing or hereditary. It causes blurred vision, glare, streaking light. In mild cases, it can be managed with glasses and treatments. Ayurvedic medicines like

  1. Divya Maha Triphala Ghrit
  2. Saptamrit Lauh Tablets for Eye Disorders are effective. Along with these, Ayurvedic treatments like Tarpanam will be beneficial which can be taken in Ayurvedic hospitals.

Eat healthy food with spinach, carrots, bell pepper, broccoli, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes which are good. Sleep well. Give proper rest by closing your eyes in between. Do eye exercises like moving the eyeballs up and down, clockwise and anticlockwise, looking things that are closer and then far also helps.Dr.Ramani.
