An Open Labelled Comparative Clinical Study to Evaluate the Effect of Go-Ghrita Tarpana and Triphala-Ghrita Tarpana on Antero-Posterior Diameter in Axial-Myopia
Keywords:Prathama Patalagata Timira, Axial-Myopia, A-P diameter, A-Scan, Go-Ghrita, Triphala-Ghrita.
Background and Objective: Axial-myopia is characterized by blurriness of vision for distance caused by increased in A-P diameter. Usual treatment for myopia is optical correction by optical glass and contact lens. To restore distance vision, surgical intervention like, LASIK is adopted, which has complications like dry eye syndrome and astigmatism. The Ayurvedic approach of the disease mainly concentrates on treating the disease and preventing the progression of the disease. There are many hypothetical theories regarding mode of action of Tarpana on Myopia and Timira. In this study, an attempt is made to observe the effect of Tarpana on A-P diameter of eyeball and to know the difference between Tarpana by plain Go-Ghrita and Triphala Ghrita.
Materials and Methods: 20 patients of Group A, were treated with Go-Ghrita Tarpana (two sittings of 7 days each, with the gap of 14 days) and in Group B, 20 patients were treated with Triphala-Ghrita Tarpana (two sittings of 7 days each, with the gap of 14 days).
Results: The data of both the groups were collected according to the objective and subjective parameters and analyzed using the most appropriate statistical test (repeated measures of ANOVA, Bonferroni Test and Mann- Whitney U Test). The efficacy is statistically significant within the group at P <0.001and statistically insignificant between the groups at P >0.05 among all the parameters.
Interpretation and Conclusion: On comparison of Go-Ghrita Tarpana with Triphala-Ghrita Tarpana, both have an equal effectiveness on distant vision, Optical correction and A-P diameter.
