Abstract

Computer vision syndrome, a recent occupational hazard, is a collection of features like ‘eye strain’, ‘blurred vision’, ‘redness’, ‘dryness’, ‘headache’, ‘diplopia’ etc. About 50 to 90% of the regular computer users are affected with these symptoms. Although a number of researches have been carried out, no curative treatment has been achieved yet. Only palliative measures in the form of tear supplements are available which have to be used lifelong by the patients. Hence, aim of this pilot study is to understand the efficacy of ‘chandanadi ghrita tarpana’ in computer vision syndrome.
