The lipophilic action of Gritha facilitates the transportation of the drug to the target organ and finally reaches the cell because the cell membrane also contains lipids.

This phospolipid nature of medicine facilitates the entry of the drug into the eye ball through the corneal surface.

Moreover, the medicine preparations used in Netra Tarpana is in the form of suspension containing different particles of the drug and the particles do not leave the eye as quick as a solution.
