Adhimanth is a Sarvagata Netra Roga corelated to Glaucoma in Modern Science.
According to latest WHO Survey, Glaucoma is the second largest cause of blindness ofter cataract worldwide. Glaucoma is multifactorial chronic, progressive diseases
characterized by increased intraocular pressure resulting in damage to optic nerve and retinal nerve fibers leading to death of retinal ganglion cells with loss of visual function. Early
glaucoma diagnosis is imperative so that treatment can be initiated to prevent further damage. Fortunately, the understanding of glaucoma has evolved significantly in last one
decade. New technologies and results from various international trials have improved the understanding and management of glaucoma. Lastest diagnostic procedures and vast
improvement in medical, surgical and laser management of glaucoma has raised the hope to preserve visual function effectively with minimum side effects at an affordable cost.
This mega book on Adhimatha (glaucoma) has been written through collective efforts and hard work with the aim of providing detail knowledge in Ayurvedic and modern aspect of
glaucoma completely in one book which is at present not available. This book contains collection of all scattered references from different classical texts of Ayurveda along with
modern aspects in a single book which is very hectic work covering all aspects of glaucoma from classification, patho-physiology to various diagnostic procedures, Ayurvedic and
medical, surgical and laser management of glaucoma, complications along with recent advances and future prospects.
A lot of hard work and effort has been emphasized to prepare this comprehensive book pertaining to Adhimatha/Glaucoma for the benefit of students and Ayurvedic
A huge upsurge of world-wide interest is apparent these days in traditional systems of medicine at a time when the real facts gush out to drive home the truth that the current
modern medicine is not the ultimate solution to achieve the real goal of health.
Ayurveda is a science of life, which is not only a healing science but also deals deals with the spiritual aspects of life. Ayurveda was so advanced in ancient times, that they had
classified it into eight branches and Shalakya tantra was one among these branches which deals with the health and diseases of organs situated above the clavicle.
As eyes are the gateway to external world and most precious among all the sense organs, protection of sight is our prime importance since ancient times. Eye diseases have been
classified into seventy- six types based on adhistana etc. And sarvagata rogas comes under this classification where in the whole eye is affected.
Adhimanta is one among the sarvagata rogas charectarised by severe pain. In modern science it is co-related to Glaucoma which is charectarised by rise in intraocular pressure.
Worldwide surveys strongly suggest that incidence of Glaucoma is in the region of 2% of population over 40 years of age. Although many patients with primary Glaucoma give no
revelant family history the disease may show strong hereditary influencs and examination of siblings may reveal early signs of the disease.
The purpose of this book is for the benefit of post graduate and Ph. D scholars who can have an easy access to this disease with all available references quoted together from
many classical and modern books. As our branch is expanding and bifurcating into opthalmology (Netre), Shiro-Nasa-Karna (ENT) and Mukha Rogas (Dentisty) there is scarcity
of books on concerned diseases. Hence this book will be very usefull especially for post graduate and Ph.D. scholars. Hence an attempt has been made to gather all information in
a single book which saves time in collecting references from different samhitas along with modern aspects with out omitting any topic. I hope this comprehensive guide on
Adinantha with Modern and Ayurvedic overview is worth appreciable.
