Objectives : Strabismus refers to the oculomotor muscles imbalance that results from improper alignment of the visual axes of the two eyes. It may be divided into paralytic and nonparalytic strabismus. Paralytic strabismus is primarily result from neurologic problem and nonparalytic strabismus is more strictly opthalmologic problem. At first we used this method(electroacupuncture at oculomotor muscles) and gained good recoveries for adult paralytic strabismus cases or Miller-Fisher syndrome, and I tried to know the effective and safety for children cases. Methods : We treated the case by using the electroacupuncture at paralytic oculomator muscles. The case was treated almost daily and every treatment was enforced 10 minutes. We use the PG-306 electra-acupuncture products(Suzki Iryoki Co. Japan) and apply the low consequence wave of I-8Hz Results : We found that the case was recovered perfectly in short term and appealed any sides effect or compliant. So I try to apply this treatment in many children cases and make the treating protocol for them.
