Ask patient to close eye and look upward. Use finger to push the eyeball upwards and insert the needle, first slightly inferiorly, then perpendicularly, between eyeball and the inferior wall of orbit, 0.5 to 1 cun.
According to several classical texts, this point is contraindicated to moxibustion.
Needle should be inserted slowly without lifing, thrusting or rotating. Immediately after withdrawal of the needle, press firmly with a cotton wool ball for about a minute to prevent hematoma.
