Abstract

Ayurvedic way of diagnosis has two basic components mainly Rogapariksha and Rogipariksha. Among them Rogapariksha gives us the detailed knowledge about a disease starting from the etiological aspects to the actual manifestion of disease. The five basic components of Rogapariksha are Nidana, Purvarupa, Rupa, Samprapti and Upashaya, which are collectively known as Nidana Panchakas. Nidana, the foremost component among them not only gives the knowledge of causative factors but also helps in treatment by avoiding them. Among all the Indriyas, Netra is said to be Pradhana, thus a special care and concern  should be taken to protect it. Understanding the strength of the causative factors  for eye diseses will help to execute the treatment appropriately and maintain the healthy vision. Thus an attempt is made to analyse the Netra Roga Nidana in this presentation.
