Ayurveda is one of the most ancient medical sciences of the world which is most rational and scientific. Among the classic granthas of Ayurveda which are available now, Sushrut samhita gives a wide description of diseases of shalakya tantra. Among five sense organs Sushruta has given the most importance to the eyes. While treating patients of netraroga on ayurvedic line of regimen we are always concerned to reduce the pain related to various discorders. A person having pain is always restless and demands quick pain relief. There are several drugs or injections in market for pain relief which are included under the name NSAID. These adversely affect Raktavaha and mutravaha strotas. The analgesic remedies in Ayurveda are not that much effective as NSAID. The benefits of snehana and swedana are limited to certain extents. In this condition the role of viddha chikitsa proves its effectiveness in reducing pain very quickly. Also it is very economical procedure and very simple to perform. Achyarya Sushruta has explained this in detail in Sushrut Samhita. Vyadha means to bore a hole to drain out. It must be done by hollow needle. That is the basic difference between viddha chikitsa and acupuncture which is done with solid needle. It is implied to give an instant and acute pain relief. It doesn’t require any internal medication as an addictive to enhance its effect. Viddha and siravedha is a part of ayurvedic treatment along with other ayurvedic treatments. The concept of viddhakarma will be discussed further.

Keywords: Viddhakarma, pain relief, netraroga, sushrut samhita.
