The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of different ocular massage health education methods on ocular massage in glaucoma patients after trabeculectomy. Eighty-six patients with glaucoma after trabeculectomy (86 eyes) were randomly divided into two health education groups. One group was a watch video group (43 patients, 43 eyes), while the other was an orally taught health education group (43 patients, 43 eyes). Patients were followed up for 1 week, 1 month, and 3, 6, and 12 months after discharge. Records of the patient responses after health education, compliance of patients with follow-up, and intraocular pressure were determined. Measurements included intraocular pressure and differences between the watch video and orally taught health education groups. The differences between the watch video group and orally taught health education group were not statistically significant at 1 week and 1 month, while the differences were statistically significant at 3, 6, and 12 months. The results indicated that health education videos can enable glaucoma patients to have a better mastery of ocular massage after trabeculectomy. According to the needs of patients, health education video use produced good results and should be promoted.
