    Yes, actually acupuncture is recommended by some doctor to treat the cross eyes and it indeed works. The so-called crossed eye is squint in medical terms. There are many possible reasons which might lead to crossed eye yet the main problem might be the imbalance of muscles which support eyes rotating. Acupuncture can adjust the muscles and get the balance between muscles to that eyes can pointing at the same direction. For kids, patching and glasses can effectively help correct eyes. You can go to visit some eye specialist for professional suggestion. You can also do some more eye exercises to get muscles balanced. Acupuncture is the traditional Chinese therapy, which can break through the blockage of body, promote blood circulation and gain the balance of Yin and Yang. It should be helpful to your crossed eyes. Good luck!

    There are many vision problems for many people, amblyopia and strabismus included. Amblyopia, sometimes is known as "lazy eye," and is poor vision in an eye that did not develop normal sight during childhood. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eyes. These vision problems will develop into crossed eyes if we do not correct them in ealy stage. Don't worry, a new study show thah acupuncture may be an effective cure for crossed eyes: 1. Received five acupuncture treatments per week for 15 weeks. 2. Five needles were inserted at sites on the head, face, hand and leg and left in for 15 minutes. 15 weeks later, your visual ability will become better and better. Sure, you could cure your vision problems by other ways such as occlusion therapy, eye muscle surgery. These methods must be checked with your doctor. Best wishes!

    Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. It is mysteries and profound. Also, it is has a hard and complex theory. Crossed-eye is a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other. It typically involves a lack of coordination between the extra ocular muscles. It is true that you can heal crossed eye by acupuncture. The traditional Chinese doctor will use needles to stab your points. And then you may get better day by day. However, it is slow and complex. Wearing eyeglasses and take surgery will do good to help with crossed eyes.
