|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Myopia||Drug: 0.25 % atropine Drug: 0.5 % atropine Procedure: 0.25 % atropine+auricular acupoints||Phase 1|
A total of 64 school-aged children with myopia, fulfilling eligibility criteria, were recruited. They were randomly assigned to three arms:
- 21 treated with the 0.25 % atropine each night (0.25A).
- 20 treated with the 0.5 % atropine each night (0.5A).
- 23 treated with 0.25 % atropine each night together with stimulation of auricular acupoints(0.25A+E).
This protocol was proceeded for at least 6 months.The differences in post-treatment effects of these three groups were statistically accessed.
