Abstract: Objective To compare the differences in the clinical therapeutic effects on juvenile myopia between Zheng’s stunt needling technique and traditional even needling technique. Methods A total of 166 cases of mild juvenile myopia(diopter <-3.00 D) were randomized into an observation group(Zheng’s stunt needling technique) and a control group(traditional even needling technique), 83 cases in each one(166 affected eyes). Taiyang(EX-HN 5), Fengchi(GB 20), Cuanzhu(BL 2), Hegu(LI 4) and Guangming(GB 37) were used in the two groups. In the observation group, the erlongxizhu needling technique was adopted at Taiyang(EX-HN 5), the guoyanre needling technique at Fengchi(GB 20) and xiquedengmei needling technique at Cuanzhu(BL 2). The traditional needling technique was used at Hegu(LI 4) and Guangming(GB 37). In the control group, traditional even needling technique was applied at all the acupoints. The treatment was given once every day, continuously for 6 times as one course. There was 1 day at interval. After treatment for 4 courses, the changes in visual acuity, diopter and axial length were observed before and after treatment. The therapeutic effects were evaluated. Results After treatment, the visual acuity of the naked eyes, and diopter were remarkably improved in the patients of the two groups(all P <0.05). The improvements in the observation group were better than those in the control group(both P <0.05). The axial length did not change in the two groups(both P>0.05). The total effective rate was 78.3%(130/166) in the observation group, which was better than 57.8%(96/166) in the control group(P <0.05). Conclusion Zheng’s stunt needling technique effectively improves the vision, rectifies the refractive error and delays the progression of myopia. The therapeutic effects of it are better than traditional even needling technique.
