Abstract: Our ancient seers have given prime importance to the eye by considering it the most vital sense organ among all sense organs. It says Sarvendriyanam nayanam pradhanam. Ocular diseases are the most common condition found in a day-to-day life. Vataja Abhishyanda, explained by our Acharya 5000 years, is much more significant today. According to Acharya Sushruta, Abhishyanda is the leading cause of all eye diseases and is also one of the aupsargic roga. It is one among the sarvagata roga. Bilwadi yoga combines herbal and mineral topical formulations mentioned in Ayurvedic classics. The formulation is helpful in itching, watering, and burning sensation in eyes, like ocular disorders. Material and Method: To make the drug application more convenient, the present study has been undertaken to modify Bilwadi yoga into ointment form and develop the final product's physiochemical profile. This form was designed in two steps: preparation of ghana satva from the decoction of herbal drugs and mixing the powdered medication with bee wax to attain the final product. Pharmaceutical analysis of Bilwadi yoga ointment preparation was done according to API and protocol of drug testing of PLIM. Result and Discussion: The formulation is safe for use as heavy metals were below the acceptable limit and free from pathogenic microbes. Conclusion: Bilwadi yoga ointment was prepared following the method described in Sharangdhara Samhita. This paper presents the analytical study of the formulation.
