Abstract :

Age related macular degeneration is an acquired degeneration of the retina that causes significant central visual impairment through a combination non-neovascular (Drusen and retinal pigment epithelium abnormalities) and neovascular derangement (choroidal neovascular membrane). AMD is the most common cause of irreversible, visual loss, in individuals over 50 years of age and it is the leading cause of blindness in elderly people. Globally the projected number of people with ARMD in 2020 is 196 millions, increasing to 288 millions in 2040. In Ayurvedic text there is a detailed description of Netragatvyadhi according to various sites. In this study an approach has been made to understand the pathology of ARMD, its sign and symptoms through Ayurvedic point of view and co-relation between patalgatvyadhi mentioned in Ayurveda.
