Eye Floaters- Ayurvedic Treatment, Diet, Exercises, Research Papers, Yoga & Pranayama

Spots in your eyesight are known as Eye Floaters. They might appear to you as strings, cobwebs, or black or grey flecks. When you move your eyes, they might move about. When you attempt to gaze straight at floaters, they appear to dart away.


Black or gray dots

Squiggly lines

Threadlike threads that can be knobby and nearly transparent




Ocular changes brought on by ageing.

inflammation in the eye’s iris

Irritation of the eye

Eye damage

When the vitreous pulls away from the retina, it causes a vitreous detachment.

retinal tear (when a hole in the retina is caused by a vitreous separation)

When the retina pulls away from the back of the eye, it is called a retinal detachment.

Eye procedures and eye treatments


Floaters can be brought on by vitreous debris from an infection, an inflammation, or a haemorrhage, but they are mainly produced by the vitreous’ aging-related deterioration, which results in collagen fibre condensations. Floaters are sometimes referred to by patients as “flies,” “cobwebs,” or “worms” that are more noticeable in bright environments.


Usually, your exam includes dilating your eyes. Eye drops enlarge (dilate) your eye’s dark centre. This enables your specialist to see the vitreous and the rear of your eyes more clearly.


There are two possible treatments if your eye floaters affect you:

Vitrectomy, a procedure to remove the floater

Treatment with lasers (vitreolysis)

A small incision is made in the eye during a vitrectomy. The eye floater and all or part of the vitreous can be taken out through this cut. A fix is used in its stead. Your eye floaters might not all be eliminated by this surgery. The risks of this treatment include:

Bleeding Cataracts

A ripped retina


PVDs, also known as vitreous floaters, have a bright outlook. When a patient has vitreous haemorrhage or retinal detachments, the prognosis is worse. The floater’s symptoms can go away in three months. Certain patient symptoms might not go away.


Retinal detachment.

Retinal damage.

Vitreous bleeds.

Retinal or vitreous inflammation brought on by an autoimmune disorder or an infection.

Eye floaters in ayurveda

This illness is regarded as a Vata Predominant Ophthalmic illness in Ayurvedic medicine. Pitta and/or Kapha may also be associated with the clinical condition, however only at specific phases or variations of the disorder.

The main focus of Ayurvedic eye floaters treatment is eliminating the underlying cause of the condition. It labels floaters in the eyes as a Vata Dosha. Therefore, the goal of treatment is to restore normalcy to the disturbances brought on by this specific dosha. It starts with a diagnosis of the type of ocular floaters that the patients are experiencing. Panchakarma therapies like Siro abhyanga, Netra tharpanam, Sirodhara, etc. are employed in the treatment if they are just harmless floaters.


Diabetic Retinopathy



Age Related Macular


Glaucoma Dry Eyes

Central Serous Retinopathy

Retina and Vitreous



When eye floaters are observed along with headache, blurred vision, pain, light sensitivity, etc., the problem needs to be taken carefully.


Eye floaters can take on a variety of forms, including:



Bubbles Webs

Uneven lines

Peripheral (at the margins of your field of vision) or central eye floaters are both possible. When you shift your eyes or attempt to stare at a floater, they typically float away. Otherwise, they continue to float before your sight.


The best method of treating eye disorders—or any disease, for that matter—is avoiding the disease’s causes. This approach should be used in those who are healthy, at risk for eye problems, and showing the warning signs of eye disease (mentioned above). This is regarded as a Sankshipta (simple and easy kind of treatment).


Divisions not mentioned




When a disease has manifested, precise dosha-alleviating and disease-modifying treatments should be carried out in conjunction with efficient medications and immune-modulators. Treatment in depth, or Vistaara Chikitsa, is another name for this type of care. This entails a methodical, step-by-step approach to treating and curing an illness that includes efficient therapies, medicines, lifestyle modifications, etc.


Samana involves balancing the doshas through dietary adjustments, Ayurvedic treatment, and lifestyle changes. A patient would always respond better to Ayurvedic treatments after undergoing Panchakarma cleansing.


Shodhan is the full panchakarma detoxification of the body.

The presence of chakshushya dravya (foods good for the eyes/vision) and therapeutic techniques enhances or improves visual acuity (vision). Anjana (Colliyrium), Nasya Karma (nasal infusion), and Tarpana (oleation/administration of herbal oils or ghee).
