Overcome Eye Diseases with Ayurveda...Part1

Eyes Diseases are prevalent in most of the world but they are more found in the tropical countries and mostly at the time of monsoon when the moisture in the air is more and there is free communication of virus and bacteria from one human to another. Also, the changing weather makes the human beings little less strong in immunity which again leads to viruses and bacteria increased attacks. Ayurveda divides the Eye diseases in different types on the basis of their symptoms. Let us see some of the diseases and medicines for them.
