Eye is considered as one of the prime sensory organs and is a vital necessity to take care of them by all means. All the Acharya of Ayurveda have mentioned various measures for maintaining the eye in healthy way which includes usage of diet and medicine judicially. There are many topics in ayurveda classics about
which we have limited knowledge like Chakshushya dravyas. There are various Chakshushya dravyas are described in Ayurvedic literature both in Bruhatrayi and Laghutrayi. Bhavprakash Nighantu is one among these Samhitas of laghutrayi. This deals with Dravyaguna. The reason behind choosing Bhavprakash Nighantu for the study is its karmapradhanya. Two types of chakshushya dravyas are described in this Nighantu, one is Chakshu hitakaraka i.e., beneficial for eyes and other is Chakshu rogahara i.e used for treating eye disorders. How these Chakshushyadravyas are doing their work on Chakshurindriys is not mentioned by any author. Here in present article, an attempt for critical analysis on Chakshushyadravyas and their line of action on the basis of Rasapanchaka is made.
