Acupuncture may be the answer to lazy eye

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Acupuncture may help treat older children with lazy eye.

Special glasses or contact lenses are only marginally effective in children over seven with amblyopia, or lazy eye, and many patients simply don't wear an eye patch.

But researchers in China and Hong Kong found that children who got acupuncture five times a week saw huge improvements in their condition.

Lazy eye was considered resolved in 41 percent of eyes in acupuncture group, compared to only 16 percent of patched eyes.
