The eye is the mirror of the body. Any abnormal changes in organs or organ system is reflected through it.

The need for a text book for B.A.M.S students in comprehensive & comparative Netravigyan dealing on the basic concepts, with modern interpretation and practical experience has been felt for a long time. Being a teacher in shalakyatantra for the last 10 years. I deeply realised that the descriptions, queries & controversies in the available books are greatest hurdle for students and not digested easily keeping in mind by the blessing of "Lord Jagannath" the changed curriculum this book is in- tended primarily as a first step in commencing and continuing the study for the fundamentals of "Netravigyan" in english language.

For this purpose with great help of my wife Dr. (Smt) Rasmita Routray I have gone through concerned Ayurvedic and modern literatures to get a clear idea of the subject, our clinical experiences and re-search trials have helped us very much. The individual diseases with applied anatomy, applied physiology, sagyan (definition), nidana(etiology), samprapti (pathogenesis), Lakshana (signs & symptoms) sadhya- sadhyata (prognosis), chikitsa - treatment (Veshaja, shastra etc.) both ancient & modern correlation / interpretation are described in such a way that a B .A.M.S student, researcher, practitioner and concerned teacher can easily approach the case with confidence.

There were hurdles during the work, but by the grace of our Parents there were helping hands from various sources. First of all we express our loving thanks to our daughters Chandanakshi, Sunandakshi & Anandakshi for their whole hearted support and encouragement. We are especially thankful to our students Dr. Natabar Chand, Sri Satrujit Kalsai, Dr. Budhadeba Mishra, Dr. Ram &: Dr. Swarup for their various helps time to time.
