The essence of Netra Tarpan lies in its commitment to providing holistic nourishment to enhance and maintain eye health.

Triphala, ghee, and medicinal oils are often combined to create a potent concoction that addresses a spectrum of eye-related issues. Each component plays a crucial role in promoting eye health, from cleansing to rejuvenation.
