Scleritis is a systemic manifestation of sclera. Topical eye drops frequently are ineffective in this condition and systemic therapies can have serious adverse effects. No satisfactory treatment modalities are available in modern medicine for this condition. A case of 24 years old male, having severe red eye, conjunctival congestion extending from nasally and temporally towards cornea was attended successfully in this case. The patient was diagnosed to be suffering from Sirajala (~scleritis) and was treated with a combination of Lekhana anjana (~a type of collyrium) with oral Ayurvedic medicines for a month. Mridu virechana was done to eliminate Doshas of systemic level before starting the main treatment. After 15 days of treatment; redness and discomfort were disappeared. Pain, headache, discomfort were decreased, with slight redness around the nodule in the right eye, while left eye was normal after a month of treatment.
