Of all the ocular diseases, Timira is considered to be the most important one, causing difficulty in vision.

Due to all these factors Presbyopia is increasing day by day. The disease Timira - Presbyopia is Vata predominant Tridoshaja condition described under drishtigata rogas by various acharyas.
