A pilot study carried out in Iran has found that acupuncture can improve visual function in patients with retinitis-pigmentosa (RP). Twenty-three RP subjects received ten sessions of acupuncture (at Sibai ST-2, Yintang M-HN-3, Fengchi GB-20, Yuyao M-HN-6, Guangming GB-37, Yanglao SI-6, Hegu, L.I.4, Taichong LIV-3, Shenting DU-24, Quchi LI-11, Xuehai SP-10, Ganshu BL-18 and Shenshu BL-23). Most participants reported subjective improvements in vision, whilst improvements in objective measures of visual function after acupuncture were statistically and clinically significant.
