Abstract: The eyes are the most important of the five senses. If a person is endowed with all other sensory faculties, strength, beautiful appearance etc. but without eyesight, he will be as useless as an insect (kudya). Chandraprabha Varti is an Ayurvedic topical formulation mentioned in the Ayurvedic classic. According to Acharya Yogratnakar, this Varti eliminates Timira, Pistaka, Patala and Pushpakaroga. For better compliance with medicine and aseptic delivery of drugs, the Varti will be modified in the ointment. The present study has been undertaken to develop the physiochemical profile of the final product. Anjana was prepared in the form of ghan satva kalpana. Ajamutra was added in decoction in adequate amounts and then mixed with emulsified bee wax to attain the final product. Materials and Method: The prepared drug was evaluated for organoleptic study and physiochemical study, and the product was subjected to microbial contamination test for developing standards. Result: The result shows the organoleptic character and sterility. Conclusion: Chandraprabha Varti ointment was prepared by following the method prescribed in Yogratnakar. This paper presents the analytical study of the formulation.
