The goal is to act by magnetic stimulation on a specif muscle of the hypoconvergent eye, the lateral rectus, to create a myorelaxing effect. The magnet used has a strength of 1400 GAUSS. It must be placed at the prolonging angle of the eye right, on the external edge of the orbit (for acupuncturists it is the first meridian point of the gall bladder). It is possible to move it lower to act on the inferior oblique.
The north face of the magnet must be facing the muscle. The magnet is suspended with a little piece of tape. The therapeutic strategy is that it must be worn 24 hours a day 6 days out of 7 (off on Sundays).
It is obvious that for therapeutic or esthetic reasons, this protocol cannot always be respected. In that case, patients must wear it a minimum of 14 to 16 hours a day (including night time).
