A new physiotherapy named Ciliary Muscle Training method and one successful case had been reported first for treatment of Posner-Schlossman Syndrome (PSS), also known as Glaucomatocyclitic Crisis. When a person observed a back and forth moving object, the ciliary muscle would involuntarily do sometimes tense and sometimes relaxant exercise which can relieve the tensive state of the ciliary muscle of patients suffering PSS disease. Through this period of continued treatment, this ciliary muscle training method can improve the health status of the ciliary muscle and finally achieve the purpose of curing PSS disease. In this successful case, the patient`s feedback result was very good after receiving our suggested ciliary muscle training method as an attempt to treat PSS, ill right eye of this PSS patient showed normal appearance without any differences from the other normal eye, his vision test values of naked eye were both 4.9 under nearly 200 degrees of myopia. High intraocular pressure (IOP) was mitigated, measured IOP value was in the normal (≦ 21 mmHg) and comfortable state without PSS relapse until now. Therefore, ciliary muscle training method could be a potential clinical treatment approach to PSS disease.
