Effect of auricular pressing treatment on myopia in children.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the effect of pressing auricular points on myopia in children.

METHODS:

Myopic children aged 8-9 years were divided into two groups. The Chinese herb Semen Vaccariae was used to stimulate the auricular points of CO10, LO5, TF4, CO15, CO12, and CO13 for three treatment courses for the experimental group (n = 39), while the same therapy was not given to the control group (n = 33). Binocular naked vision of the experimental group and the control group before and after the intervention was measured using a standard E visual.acuity chart.

RESULTS:

There was no difference in the binocular naked vision between the experimental group and the control group before the intervention. In contrast, there was significant improvement in binocular naked vision in the experimental group after the intervention compared with the control group (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

When combined with external medical application, non-invasive auricular therapy could improve the function of myopia in children. Auricular pressing was well received by the children.
