Uveitis is a broad term used to describe the inflammatory pathology of vascular layer of the eyeball. It is composed of a diverse group of disease entities, which, in total, has been estimated to cause approximately 10% of blindness. It can lead to serious complications such as cataract, glaucoma, and cystoid macular edema if not diagnosed and treated promptly. A 31-year-old male patient residing in urban area presented to the outpatient department with complaints of redness, pain, and watering from both eyes for the last 10 years. He also complained of photophobia, floaters, and discoloration of skin under the eyes for the last one year. The clinical features of anterior uveitis simulated to Pitta-Raktadhimantha and the treatment modalities adopted were based on Doshas and Samprapti (~pathogenesis). On examination, both the eyes were severely congested. The patient was treated with oral Ayurvedic drugs and topical medication. Satisfactory improvement was noticed by the end of management inferring the potential of Ayurveda approaches in management of such conditions.
