Prevalence of Dry Eye Syndrome varies 18.4% to 40.8% all over the world1 . If Dry Eye Syndrome remains untreated leads to severe complications like corneal ulcer which may leads to blindness. Most of the symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome are similar to lakshanas of Shushkakshipaka in Ayurvedic literature.Vata & Pitta vitiation as per Ayurvedic view point are the major contributing pathological factors in its manifestation. Contrary to the available modern medical treatment or management regimen; Ayurveda propounds a systematic systemic or holistic treatment approach in the treatment of dry eye syndrome.

The present study has shown that the Jeevaniygana Ghrita tarpan and Saptamrut loha is highly valuable in the management of dry eye syndrome.
