Abstract

Nirma Bansal* and Prabhakar Vardhan

ABSTRACT

Background: Giant papillary conjunctivitis is a severe form of papillary conjunctivitis predominantly affecting superior tarsal conjunctiva usually as a result of mechanical injury followed by antigenic reaction. The condition is mostly associated with contact lens wear, but in some instances, it also presents with chronic use of irritant ocular cosmetics e.g. kajal, mascara etc. As per Ayurveda classics this condition can be correlated with Pitattja Abhisyanda which is usually associated with generalised vitiation of Pitta Dosha. Objective: To observe the efficacy of Ayurveda treatment in the management of Giant papillary conjunctivitis. Material & Methods: An 18 year old male patient presented to eye OPD of NIA, Jaipur with gradual onset of burning sensation, itching in eyes, foreign body sensation in eyes, watering from eyes and photophobia with a history of one year. History and examinations lead to the diagnosis of Giant papillary conjunctivitis. Patient was treated according to principles of treatment of Pittaja Abhisyanda with Parisheka therapy and Shamana Chikitsa using various Ayurveda formulations. Results: Remarkable results were observed in the form of improvement in all the symptoms and signs in the patient. Conclusion: Ayurveda treatment has valuable effect in the management of Giant papillary conjunctivitis.
