Abstract: In the present age, Allergic Conjunctivitis is the most common eye disease caused due to allergens like dust, pollen from trees and grass, animal dander, chemical scents, etc. The prevalence of allergic Conjunctivitis in India is on the higher side, affecting 15% to 40% of the Indian population and it is observed to be a seasonal disease, i.e., during summer. According to Acharya Sushruta, Abhishyanda (Conjunctivitis) is the root cause of almost all ocular diseases and, if it is not treated priorly, may land in a chronic course, further resulting in developing severe complications such as Adhimantha (Glaucoma) etc. Vataja Abhishyanda can be correlated to Allergic Conjunctivitis. Allergic Conjunctivitis is characterized by itching, burning sensation, watery, mucous, or stringy discharge, mild photophobia, and eye hyperemia. In the present study, according to Acharya Charaka, Saindhavadi Bidalaka was done on the patient having symptoms of Vataja Abhishyanda (Allergic Conjunctivitis) for 7 days. Vata is said to be the predominant dosha of Vataja Abhishyanda (Allergic Conjunctivitis). Saindhavadi Bidalaka has Vataghna properties (pacify Vata dosha); thus, it will reduce the symptoms of Vataja Abhishyanda (Allergic Conjunctivitis). A total of 3 patients of Vataja Abhishyanda (Allergic Conjunctivitis) were treated by Saindhavadi Bidalaka for seven days. The assessment of the condition was done before and after treatment. The result of the study was analyzed by comparing the before and after the completion of the study. The result proves to be significantly effective based on its clinical assessment.
