Ayurvedic Management Of Hyphema With Herbal Remedies


Mostly, the eyes specialist is involved in managing traumatic injuries of the eye or around the eye. Even ocular injuries are very common all around the whole world and have faced major consequences in their daily clinical practice. These eye injuries vary in symptoms, they may lie in a mild range of symptoms and are also not going to cause non-sight threatening, but may cause extremely serious illness with blind consequences. Hyphema is an accumulation of red blood cells that enters the front (anterior) chamber of the eye between the iris and the cornea, its most common cause is traumatic injury. In this article, we are going to discuss hyphema, its reasons, its symptoms, and its preventive measures with Ayurvedic management.



Hyphema is the pooling of RBCs in the anterior chamber of the eye, between the iris and the cornea, this symptom is directly caused by traumatic injuries. This anterior chamber of the eye is filled with a clear fluid that is referred to as aqueous humour, folds of the posterior chamber that are named ciliary processes are responsible to make this fluid, then cross through the pupils into the anterior chambers of the eyes. This pooling of blood may cover a maximum part of the iris and pupil and may hamper the vision, halfly or completely. A hyphema is a very painful condition, if not treated on time then it may cause permanent damage to the vision problems.

What Causes Hyphema?

A most common cause is -

  • Blunt eye trauma can be caused due to sports injuries.
  • Penetrating trauma and spontaneous hyphemas can occur as well.
  • Road accidents.
  • Abnormal blood vessels developed on the surface of the iris.
  • Infection of eyes can occur due to herpes zoster.
  • Haemophilia and sickle cell anaemia are the two blood clotting diseases that may develop Hyphema.
  • Cancer of eyes.
  • Intraocular lens diseases.

Presentation Of The Hyphema

70% of the symptoms are seen in children, especially between the 10-20 years of males, they are usually caused by blunt injuries like while playing games, accidents that can be road or may happen in industries also, accidents in industries, may fall in-ground or from height, fights or during shooting with guns.

  • Decrease in vision or a loss of vision
  • Pain around the eyes.
  • Sensitivity to the light.
  • Vision with a red tint.
  • If someone is having microhyphema then it may have slightly blurred or normal vision, but if someone is not having vision anymore, then this will be a complete hyphema.
  • This condition may improve with time when the blood gradually goes down and accumulates in between the iris and cornea or in the anterior chamber of the eye.
  • Complete hyphema condition is the most severe in which the blood fills the chamber entirely.

Facts About Hyphema

  • The incidence of traumatic hyphema is 15 out of 1,00,000 people but this commonly occurs in children.
  • Males are more prone to get this disease because they are more involved in gaming activities as compared to females.
  • Children are typically affected because they get involved in basketball games, baseball games, or soccer that strike the anterior surface of the eye.

Ayurvedic View Of Hyphema

In Ayurveda, there are various Vetra rogas, that are mentioned by Acharya Charak, Acharya Sushrut, Ashtang Hruday, etc. Hyphema is a condition in which pitta dosha and rakta dhatu get vitiated. It can be caused by abhighata (Trauma) to the native place of the eye. Then due to these factors netra srotas are being vitiated by kapha dosha and its gunas, it shows its powerful effects on the intraocular circulation and the drainage of the affected area slows down. So in this disease, we used to balance all the doshas and do the treatment that is pitta and rakta dosha shamak and is rasayana in nature.
