Medicated oils are applied to the eyes and surrounding areas for a specific amount of time. Akshi is the Sanskrit word for eyes, while Tarpan is the Sanskrit word for sustenance. This procedure is used in conjunction with other herbal remedies to cure various eye disorders such as refractive error, Xerophthalmia, and others, as well as to enhance the appearance of the eyes.

The eye is filled with medicinal oil or ghee for a period of time during this procedure. The patient is asked to lie comfortably on the table. Then, using black gram dough, a circular border with a height of about one and a half inches is created around the eye socket (Masha). Then, while keeping the eyelids closed, slowly pour the slightly warmed medicinal ghee or oil into this cavity. During this procedure, the patient is instructed to remain calm, immobile, and to open and close his or her eyes often so that the medicine can stay in contact with the eyeball.
