This is an inhereted condition and patient usually have difficulty in vision. The field and vision both get gradual deterioration. In ayurveda we usually advise tab. sapt amrit loh and abhrak sahastra puti as these are goodimmuno boosters and improve eyesight. There is a procedure called akshi tarpan wherein medicated oil is filled over eye and patient is advised to open his eyes while this medicated oil is kept over it.There are specialized ayurvedic eye care hospitals in keral and bangalore etc. You can seek their opinion and get examined there.
