    I never applied acupuncture to treat itchy eyes. So, i can't tell you if it work or not. In fact, there are many thing that can cause itchy eyes such as dry eyes, tired eyes, allergy and infection etc. But as far as i know, allergy is the most common causes of itchy eyes. Anyway, you shall check your eyes by doctor for sure. And if it caused by dry eyes, just get help from eye drops. If you get it from allergy, you shall consult a doctor and get some medicated eye drops. Hope this can help you.
