Ocular motor nerve palsy treated by ocular acupuncture
Ocular motor nerve palsy patients who received ocular acupuncture treatment
Other: Ocular acupuncture
Patient's skin located in the extraocular muscles projection area is routinely disinfected. A diameter of 0.20 mm and length of 25 mm needle is inserted slowly. Piercing depth is about 20mm. The electropuncture apparatus is used, each group of electrodes are distinguished with different colors of wires to generate current stimulations of current 1.0~1.5 milliampere (mA), voltage 9 volt(V), frequency 1.5 hertz (Hz), and duration of 40 minutes.
- Clinical efficacy rate (Cure, Effective and Invalid) [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 month. ]Clinical efficacy rate (Cure, Effective and Invalid) assessed by investigator's discretion. Efficacy rate is calculated as number of patients with Cure and effective proportional to number of all cases.
- Diplopia angle [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 weeks. ]Patient's diplopia angle obtained by retrospective chart review.
- Eyeball movement distance [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 weeks. ]Patient's eyeball movement distance obtained by retrospective chart review.
- Distance between upper and lower eyelid. [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 weeks. ]Patient's distance between upper and lower eyelid obtained by retrospective chart review.
