*Dr. Padmavathi T. Rathod, Dr. Harsha S. and Dr. Mamatha K. V.

ABSTRACT

The commonest symptom of lacrimal disorder is Epiphora. It is a term reserved for an overflow of tears from the eye because of obstruction, stenosis, punctal malposition or functional disorder of the lacrimal passages which might be Anatomical or Physiological.[1] Among many lacrimal disorders Chronic acrocystitis is the commonest one -an inflammation of the lacrimal sac which is characterized by simple watering of the eyes followed by redness, swelling of the sac. This starts with chronic low grade infection and takes up any stage without any limitations. It is caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcusaureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa which have risk factors almost always related to nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Ayurveda seers have explained Netra srava which are of 4 types and the prognosis varies from sadhya to asadhya. Based on the stages of Chronic Dacrocystitis and analysing the doshic involvement the condition can be simulated to Srava explained under Sandigata rogas. Ayurveda treatment modalities especially local treatment procedures are efficient in treating such vulnerable cases. One such case was reported in early stage with the symptom, watering of the eyes and successful outcome was observed both subjectively and objectively.

Keywords: Chronic dacryocystitis, Kaphajasrava, Prakshalana, Bidalaka, Pratisarana.
