The VFI increased 4% in the right eye and left eye; the MD increased 1.08 dB in the right eye and 1.28 dB in the left eye in the acupuncture group (AG). The VFI increased 12% in the right eye and 6% in the left eye; the MD increased 5.63 dB in the right eye and 4.19 dB in the left eye in the electroacupuncture group (EG).
