Ayurvedic Tips for Diabetes and Eye


To diagnose eye diseases arising from diabetes, eye care specialists usually perform the following tests11:

  • Visual acuity: Distance and near vision tests to see how much a person can see.
  • Front portions of the eyes are examined using a special microscope to check for cataracts and other abnormalities
  • Tonometry: It is used to measure the pressure inside the eyes. If there is more pressure, it may indicate glaucoma.
  • Retina examination: Using eye drops, the eye pupils are dilated and retina is examined.
  • Optical tomography: It is a medical imaging test that produces high resolution images of the eye. It is used to examine the retina and other eye parts.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Recommended foods that should be included in the diet every day such as ghee, milk, rock salt, honey, patola (snake gourd), red rice, green gram, wheat, triphala (3 fruits), carrots and leafy vegetables13
  • Avoid foods such as sour foods, dry meat, all alcohols, select sea fishes, curd, tobacco, excessive hot and fatty foods 13
