Although cataract can be surgically removed, in many countries barriers exists that prevent patients to access surgery. However due to its high cost, post-operative complications, it necessitates researchers to find out other modalities of treatments for cataract, to breakdown patho- physiology of cataract. Anjana application expels thekapha dosa and does lekhana karma, which have longer tissue contact time than any other topical ocular administration.
