Yes, the acupuncture will work for photophobia because of the eyes structure's adjustment. You could also use some eyes drops at the same time. The warm compress could also be an effective way. You could try the above ways to see the effect. In addition, you should have the good rest and good diet every day.
Well, in my opinion, acupuncture can be good for photophobia. First, you should know that photophobia is very normal and it can occur to many people. And generally, it is a kind of eye discomfort in bright light. In some cases, severe photophobia may occur with eye problems and can cause severe eye pain even in relatively low light. For the causes, burns to the eyes or corneal abrasion and even some medicines can also lead to it. At this time, you can just apply some acupuncture to treat it. And it can be beneficial. Also, you can just eat certain foods which are high in zeaxanthin, such as Chinese wolfberries. Also, carotene from carrots and vitamin A can be useful too. Anyway, just have a try.
