Dry Eye Disease: Some Facts You May Not Know

Dry Eye Researcher Sharon Kleyne Shares Dry Eye Facts Many Don’t Know. Some Surprising Facts about Dry Eye from Dry Eye Expert Sharon Kleyne.

Many who encounter dry eye disease for the first time aren’t too worried about it—at first. “That’s important,” says world dry eye expert Sharon Kleyne, who has studied dry eye and battled its ocular reign of terror for more than thirty years. “Dry Eye begins to be noticed because of a little irritation,” says Kleyne. But as time goes by, that irritation can snowball into a full-fledged dry eye condition. Eye sensations of grittiness, redness, swelling, itchiness and blurred vision become almost commonplace. In fact, Kleyne points out, dry eye left on its own can result in blindness.

Yes, it’s true. Blindness, Kleyne explains, is out of control around the world, and so is dry eye disease. Kleyne’s noted Chinese colleague, Dr. Yuan Fang, says that dry eye afflicts more than 300 million Chinese every year. In addition, Fang points out, 60 percent of young people in China are nearsighted and need to wear glasses. In America, Kleyne says, more than 30 million Americans will be blind this year. Clearly, one way to fight blindness is to fight dry eye disease.

Kleyne, also the host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder/director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., cautions everyone to about these compelling facts regarding dry eye disease.

“For example,” Kleyne asks, “are you aware of the fact that existing medical conditions and medications can trigger dry eye? Well, it’s true.” Aging is a common cause of dry eye. So are diabetes, thyroid disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Antihistamines, drugs for blood pressure, decongestants and antidepressants can all reduce tear production and accelerate water evaporation of the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. The more the water in the eye evaporates, the worse will be the dry eye condition in that eye.

Kleyne also says that many do not know about the beneficial effects of Omega-3 fatty acids. Recent studies indicate that 325 milligrams of EPA and 175 milligrams of DHA twice a day have improved dry eye conditions. Fish and fish oil supplements are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Kleyne adds that too much time in front of a computer screen can cause and aggravate dry eye conditions. Step away from the screen at least every twenty minutes and look at objects far away (at least twenty feet away) to give eyes a much-needed rest. Staring at a computer screen slows down the natural blinking process. The less the eye blinks, the fewer are the tears produced. Fewer tears equals worse dry eye.

One other caution involves eye makeup. If a dry eye condition already exists, eye makeup can make it worse. How? Particles from the makeup can migrate to the tear film, causing irritation and excessive evaporation. If eye makeup is a necessity, apply it as far away from the eyelid line as possible to minimize instances of makeup particle migration to the tear film.

Finally, Kleyne urges more education about water and dry eye disease for everyone. Kleyne, creator of a healthier Water Life Science® lifestyle, has also invented Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only dry eye product on the global market that consists of 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water.

Why is this important? Because the water in Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® has a pH balance that is virtually identical to the pH balance of the water that is naturally produced by the eye. Thus, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the perfect supplement and dry eye solution®. “Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the gift of Nature’s Pharma®,” says Kleyne.

Addiction Eased By Combination Of Traditional Chinese & Western Medicine Say Sharon Kleyne & Dr. Anita Chen Marshall

Beware Sugar & Other Addictive Ingredients Kleyne and Marshall Agree. Kleyne & Marshall Call for More Water and Nutrition Education for Doctors.

Dr. Anita Chen Marshall holds a dual doctorate in Pharmacy and Oriental Medicine works hard to make sure that her patients “are well versed about water. If they are not,” says Marshall, “I quickly get them up to speed!” Marshall is dedicated to working with patients because there are a lot of pollutants in the foods we eat, and clean water can help flush them out of the body.

Marshall is also on the warpath against sugar and glucose consumption. Marshall often shares a recent Youtube video of a study done in Ireland in which a typical family consumes 40 times the recommended daily sugar intake of 6 teaspoons a day. “One can of coke contains 10 teaspoons of sugar,” Marshall points out. This, of course, can lead to addictive behavior.

Marshall’s health colleague, Sharon Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder and director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., believes that research will eventually prove that all addiction is rooted in too little water and too much sugar and glucose. “Water saves lives, our planet and our breath of life,” says Kleyne. “Water is also the key to stopping addiction.”

When asked by Kleyne to describe the difference between Oriental and western medicine, Marshall complies. “Western medicine,” says Marshall, “is more compartmentalized. It’s specialized. Oriental medicine treats the whole body as an integrated system—a kind of one-stop treatment place.” Even so, Marshall refers patients to western doctors for full physicals and blood tests, which establish a base from which to determine diagnosis and treatment.

In much of the world, herbal supplements are available over the counter. Because they are organic, many people think of them as safe. Yet, Kleyne and Marshall urge caution, agreeing that combinations of herbs and prescribed medications can lead to serious health consequences. As an example, Marshall brought up St. John’s Wort. Many take this herb for depression, but it can be very dangerous if you are already taking a prescribed anti-depressant. St. John’s Wort increases liver enzymes and encourages the body to metabolize other drugs faster. This can lead to depletions that can cause health complications.

Kleyne and Marshall would like the general public and doctors to become better educated about herbs and how they affect health. Such knowledge can literally save lives. Marshall also shares the Oriental medicine tip of avoiding drinking ice water when eating a meal. “Think of washing a pan after cooking,” Marshall suggests. “The pan is greasy and it takes hot water to cut through the grease. If the water is cold, the grease congeals. The same thing happens in your body after eating. Drink room temperature water with meals.”

Nature’s Pharma® Supplements Dry Eyes With The Power Of Water®

Pure Water and a Water Life Science Lifestyle Soothes Dry Eyes Says Sharon Kleyne. The Dry Eye Solution That’s More Than Just a Mist® Is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Says Kleyne.

Eyes become dry when the tear film, which is 99 percent water, becomes over-evaporated. The organs of the body begin to evaporate as soon as the body exits the mother’s watery womb. That process of evaporation continues for the rest of one’s life, but it is not the only water evaporation to which the living being is exposed.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder/director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., teaches that eons before life on earth, the planet was surrounded by a beautiful blue ribbon of frozen liquid. Ever so slowly, over millions and millions of years, changes in the universe altered that blue ribbon. The blue ribbon turned into water droplets and the droplets felt to the surface while also creating the life-giving atmosphere we know today.

As the water as rain fell, earth’s surface absorbed much of it, taking it deep down into its subterranean crevices where formed the aquifers that people rely so much on now. Some of the rain stayed on the surface, creating oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds, streams and swamps, and in those fecund locations life as we know it first began.

Today, we know that the Power of Water® is the greatest power on earth. It is Nature’s Pharma®s dream. It is the breath of life. It is the dry eye solution® that everyone wants.

But we also know that the Power of Water is threatened by pollution, artificial environments such as air conditioning and central heating and by poor management of precious water resources. Regrettably, says Kleyne, water is not the infrastructure priority it should be in the U.S. and in many other countries. More than a third of the world’s population does not have ready access to pure water. In ten years, that number could increase to more than 50 percent.

Kleyne believes that only new water research, technology and education will save humanity from mass dehydration and death. Kleyne has contributed by creating Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only dry eye solution in the world that supplements and replenishes the evaporating tear film moisture with pure water. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is so effective because it contains no chemicals, which can be addicting, and is almost identical in its pH content to the natural pH content of the water found in the tear film.

One can still apply eye drops for dry eyes, but eye drops only seal in moisture that is already present. Eye drops will not replenish water that is already lost to evaporation in the tear film. Kleyne suggests applying Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, which is more than just a mist® first, then seal all that pure moisture in with eye drops.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the most convenient dry eye solution® whether you are young or old. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied to the eyes as a patented micron-size mist of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®’s unique bag-on-valve technology promises maximum mist and tear film absorption. “It’s the perfect eye nutrition,” says Kleyne.

7 Things That Make Your Dry Eyes Worse

Dry Eye Expert Sharon Kleyne Suggests Avoiding These 7 Activities as Much as Possible. Be More Awake if You Want To Improve Your Dry Eye Condition Says Sharon Kleyne.

Dry eye disease makes life miserable for billions of people around the world every year. But internationally respected water researcher, Sharon Kleyne, offers advice for soothing relief.

Dry eye disease occurs when the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, loses moisture due to excessive water evaporation and therefore produces fewer tears and less lubricant. Sufferers of dry eye complain of blurred vision, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, anxiety, irritability, red eyes, swollen eyes and itchy eyes. A host of causes trigger dry eyes. These include pollution, artificial environments, wind, hormones, allergies, sun glare and wind, among other causes.

Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder/director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., says that there are seven daily activities that one can eliminate to reduce dry eye episodes and symptoms.

“If you are a smoker,” says Kleyne, “stop!” Everyone knows by now that smoking is detrimental to one’s health. Smoking can be especially hard on the eyes. The smoke is irritating, and the heat speeds up the natural evaporation process.

“A second activity to stop is drinking alcohol,” says Kleyne. Alcohol also dehydrates the eyes, causing redness, swelling and pain. “If you want to reduce dry eye episodes,” says Kleyne, “cut out the booze!”

Third, Kleyne suggests giving up the blow dryer or at least reducing its use. “What happened to hand-patting wet hair with a towel to dry it?” asks Kleyne. That method is so much healthier for the eyes than exposing them to the intense heat of a hair dryer.

According to Kleyne, the fourth activity one can give up is exposing oneself to extreme temperatures. This is not a laughing matter. Keep in mind that what is extreme in temperature for one person is normal for another. An Eskimo living in an igloo does not find the cold extreme in the way that a retiree in Florida would. The key for the eye health is humidity. Very hot temperatures cause eye moisture to evaporate. Very cold temperatures can cause the meibum to thicken. The meibum is the oily outer layer of tears. When it thickens, protective tears can’t spread across the eye as well as they should under normal conditions.

The fifth activity to guard against is standing or sitting so that you face the wind. Wind dries out the eyes. This applies to wind from fans and air conditioners, too. Kleyne suggests wearing wraparound sunglasses or goggles to prevent wind from attacking the eyes.

The sixth activity Kleyne highlights is riding in a car with a window down. Some love the feel of wind whipping through the hair or a refreshing breeze caressing the skin, but the eyes resent it. Why? Dirt, grit and other unwanted particles can be blown into eyes; and once again, the wind itself dries out the eyes, triggering dry eye pain. So, if you love your eyes, don those wraparound glasses again, or roll up those windows.

Finally, get away from the computer! Excessive computer use leads to less blinking, which means fewer healthy tears. When using computers, look away from then screen at least every twenty minutes or so. Make a conscious effort to blink more often. Affix an anti-glare screen to your monitor. Use anti-glare eye glasses. Or just turn off the computer and give your eyes some love with a little eye vacation.

Kleyne also suggests that people learn more about the Power of Water®. “The Power of Water® is the greatest force on earth in the war against dry eye,” says Kleyne. The Power of Water® is Nature’s Pharma®s dream. “This breath of life,” says Kleyne, “can be accessed by using the only dry eye product on the global market that consists of pure water. Other dry eye products contain chemicals that can provide temporary relief. Yet, the chemicals can also be addictive and do nothing to replenish the tear film water lost to excessive water evaporation.”

Only Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® provides longer-lasting relief because it supplements the tear film with a patented micron-size mist of 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is easy to use, easier than eye drops, and contains no chemicals. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® actually replenishes eye water lost to excessive water evaporation. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the dry eye solution® that everyone seeks.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Is More Than Just A Mist®

Sharon Kleyne Creates Dry Eye Solution® Used by Millions Worldwide. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Delivers Eye Nutrition That Counters Dry Eye.

Using Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is a lot like having your eyes gently kissed. That’s the consensus of millions of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® fans around the world who turn to its magical Trade Secret water for dry eye relief.

Bio Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® founder and research director Sharon Kleyne, renowned new water technology researcher and inventor, created Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the dry eye solution®, as a result of her decades-long research into over-evaporation of the body’s water vapor and over-evaporation of earth’s water vapor atmosphere. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the perfect eye nutrition that soothes the eye and fights off dry eye disease.

How is it possible in the multi-billion dollar global dry eye market that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® exceeds the success rates of all other dry eye solutions®?

“It’s because of the Trade Secret water,” says Kleyne. “The only ingredient in Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is our Trade Secret water.” This multi-tested water is virtually identical in pH chemistry as the water that is naturally produced by the eye’s tear film, which is made up of 99 percent water. No other water discovered on earth can make this claim. Trade Secret water—that’s what makes Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® so special and unique.

But don’t eye drops and other eye solutions do the same thing? No! Those products can provide some dry eye relief, but they all contain chemicals, and sometimes those chemicals can become addictive. Eye drops and eye solutions with chemicals can only trap or hold in water that already exists on the treated surface. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® suffuses the eye with a nourishing, patented micron-size mist designed for maximum absorption. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® actually replenishes moisture that has evaporated from the eye. As a result, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® relieves dry eye symptoms longer than eye drops and other eye solutions.

Kleyne, also the host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder/director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., points out that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is an excellent add-on product that can be used with eye drops if you wish to do so. “”Just apply Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® first,” says Kleyne, then apply eye drops to seal in all that moisture.”

The eyes are a unique gift from nature’s pharma®. They are the most elegant organs in the body. Treat them well with the best dry eye solution® on earth, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Preserves The Magic Of The Eyes

Sharon Kleyne & Dr. Yuan Fang Share Best Dry Eye Solution® with China. Dry Eye Expert Sharon Kleyne Creates Unique Dry Eye Solution® for Global Use.

The eyes are magical. Dr. Yuan Fang, the world-renowned genome expert and dry eye researcher says that the eyes are the most elegant organ in the human body.” This is why Fang, with help from international colleagues like Bio Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® founder and research director Sharon Kleyne, wants to share a great dry eye solution® with his countrywomen-and-men.

According to Kleyne, there is no better place in the world than China with its world-leading polluted atmosphere to battle dry eye disease. Fang says that 300 million Chinese will suffer from dry eye disease this year alone. In addition, a whopping 60 percent of Chine young people must wear glasses already because they are nearsighted.

“The cause, of course, is over-evaporation of the eye’s tear film,” says Kleyne, who has researched body water evaporation and dry eye disease for more than thirty years. Because of her work, Kleyne has invented the most effective dry eye solution in the world, but more on that in a moment. Now, let’s focus on dry eye’s causes and symptoms.

Dry eye, Kleyne, Fang and other experts agree, results when the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, over-evaporates. When water over-evaporation of the tar film occurs, fewer tears are produced. The tear film dries out. When this happens, eyes become red, swollen and itchy. They burn and vision can be blurry. Other symptoms include headache, anxiety, neck and shoulder pain and impatience. Concentration suffers, and so does productivity on the job.

What causes the eye’s tear film to over-evaporate? “Keep in mind,” Kleyne teaches, “that evaporation is a natural process that begins at birth and continues until the end of life.” Kleyne points out that many factors contribute to accelerating the tear film’s evaporation. These factors include wind, dust, sun glare, artificial environments (air conditioning, central heat), allergies, hormonal imbalances and other illnesses.

“The way to compensate for over-evaporation of the eye’s tear film is to supplement it several times a day with pure water,” says Kleyne. That is why Kleyne created Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for supplementing and replenishing the tear film. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. Its pH content is virtually identical to the pH content of the natural water produced by the eye’s tear film. No other water on the planet can make that claim.

“That’s why Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the dry eye solution® that preserves the magic of the eyes,” says Kleyne, who is also the host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder/director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C. “It’s Nature’s Pharma®s gift to all of us,” says Kleyne, “if we only choose to listen and learn.”
