Ayurvedic Perception-

  • According to ayurveda,Alochak pitta is resposible for vision. Vitiation of this pitta causes vision problems. Above mentioned reasons causes vitiation of vata dosha. This vitiated vata  weakens the structures in eyes. Due to lack of proper diet, alochak pitta and dhatus (tissues) in eyes get unnourishment and therfore fail to perform their functions properly. Improper food, hampered digestion etc may produce toxins which can block the channels and cause malnourishmment of optic tissues,leading to problem called as Myopia.
