Punctate Inner Choroidopathy Treatment with Ayurveda

Punctate inner choroidopathy is a disease of Eye. The eye is the major organ in our body. This major organ helps in vision and also it is highly specialized for photoreception. The eye is placed in a protectie bony socket called orbit in a skull. The eye is the jewel of the body. So it is very important to take care of our eyes to see this beautiful world. Without Eyes our world is colourless. In Spite of this there are many diseases that affect the health of the eyes or our vision. Some of the eye disorders are refractive errors, Cataract, Glaucoma, Strabismus, Amblyopia, squint, punctate inner choroidopathy, conjunctivitis, blepharitis, pterygium, etc. But in today's article, we are going to discuss one of the eye disorders that are punctate inner choroidopathy and its Ayurvedic management.

Punctate Inner Choroidopathy


Punctate inner choroidopathy is an inflammatory condition that affects the choroid and retina of the eyes. This can lead to vision loss. This disease most commonly occurs in young women who are myopic. This term punctate inner choroidopathy was first used by Watzke, et al. in 19841. In this condition there is an inflammation in the retina and choroid part of the eyes. This disease is the average age of patients ranging from 16-40 years for this disease. The inflammation is limited to the back of the eye, meaning the posterior aspect and there is no inflammation in the front of the eye. This is the distinctive feature of Punctate inner choroidopathy.


The exact cause of PIC is not known. But researchers believe that this disease is thought to involve both genetic and environmental factors. It may also represent an autoimmune type of uveitis.


The symptoms of this disease are:

  • Appearance of gray-white or whitish yellow punctate at the areas of the inner choroid
  • Blind spot
  • Blurred vision
  • Photopsia
  • Floaters
  • Photophobia
  • Distorted vision
  • Loss of peripheral vision
  • Scarring


The diagnosis of Punctate inner choroidopathy can be difficult because the appearance of this disease is similar to other diseases of the eyes. So the diagnosis is made by careful examination of the eye and some known tests. Those tests are:

  • Visual field testing
  • Fluorescein angiography


If left untreated then this disease will show the following complications:

  • Choroidal neovascularization
  • Subretinal fibrosis
