In vidalaka kriyakalpa fresh paste is prepared with the easily available herbs i.e. rakta chandna, lodhra, gairika, vacha, haridra and ghrita nimba. The person is made to lie in supine position and the paste of 1-2 inches thick is applied covering the eyes except eyelashes. After leaving the paste for 20-25 minutes, it is gently removed and eyes are cleaned with the rose water or fresh water. This procedure relieves burning sensation, redness, watering of eyes, swelling and eyelid disorders.
