From a TCM perspective you would have to provide other signs and symptoms and a clear TCM diagnosis for appropriate point recommendations to be made. The points you have listed are fine so long as the diagnosis is related to qi stagnation/deficiency and not something like yin deficiency.

In the Tam Healing system we use massage and/or needling at the following points largely to effect the nerves which innervate the eyes. Points such as the huatuo of C3, yintang, SI 16, and LI 18.

From a more TCM side you may consider points such as:
ST 2, UB 1 or UB 2, GB 1, and/or GB 14.

You may want to read my section on eye and vision problems for more ideas.

How often and how long treatment is needed will depend greatly on the case, their TCM diagnosis, and your own personal style of treatment. Generally you should see a change within 1-2 months of treatment, so in the case of 1x/week - approximately 8 treatments.
