Aim: To assess the efficacy of ayurvedic treatment in isolated complete oculomotor nerve palsy by subjective evaluation.

Materials and methods: Prospective interventional case report supplemented by ayurvedic treatment. Using a subjective evaluation, outcome was defined according to patient’s perspective based on improvement in eye movement and ptosis. A patient 33-year-old male resident of Delhi running a private business in marketing presented with complaints of not being able to open his right eye along with decreased movements. He was apparently well 2.5 months back, then he developed nausea and vomiting for 1 week and headache (on right half). With these complaints the patient came to Netra Roga outpatient department (OPD) no 15 (ophthalmology) of Shalakya Tantra Department at Ch. Brahm Prakash Ayurved Charak Sansthan. He took treatment for 2 months and got complete remission in his symptoms.

Conclusion: Ayurvedic treatment definitely has a role in chronic disease like different types of palsies especially oculomotor nerve palsy. A case series or pilot study should be conducted in similar cases to validate the above case report, which may prevent or treat many cases of oculomotor palsies.
