Sharon Kleyne Says Dry Eye is a major symptom of Computer Vision Syndrome. Sharon Kleyne warns that CVS symptoms trigger disease and blindness.
Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, recently addressed health hazards for computer users. “I’m urging everybody who has a computer, and everybody exposed to second-hand computer glare,” said Kleyne, “to be aware of the dangers of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).”
Sharon Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program nationally syndicated on Voice of America, is a tireless advocate of water research and education; she is also a staunch supporter of healthy practices and habits that relieve the symptoms of dry eye disease and CVS.
According to Sharon Kleyne and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, computer vision syndrome affects more than 90% of people who spend three or more hours a day at their computers. This vast number of Geeks and casual computer users suffer from headaches, sore necks, blurred vision, chronic eye pain and dry eye disease.
Dry eye disease is, of course, the number one threat to eye health and a leading precursor of blindness in the world, and it is the primary symptom requiring attention in therapy for Computer Vision Syndrome. “Using over-the counter artificial tear solutions and saline solutions reduces the effects of dry eye disease,” says Kleyne, “but they only act temporarily. In fact, in the long run they make matters worse, inflaming the eye by chemically evaporating even more of the eye’s natural water vapor.”
Sharon Kleyne endorses stop-gap measures for dealing with Computer Vision Syndrome such as closing one’s eyes for twenty seconds at least every half-hour and focusing on an object at least twenty feet away at least every twenty minutes. She also advocates elimination of bright overhead lighting and elimination of screen glare. “If you have a window in your work space,” said Kleyne, “try to sit back and gaze out of it for a couple of minutes every hour or so.”
Sharon Kleyne also recommends, “the only proven, non-invasive remedy for dry eye disease, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Produced by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100% Trade Secret, pure culture tissue grade fresh water delivered to the eyes, with no discomfort or irritation. The water is applied to the eye as a micron mist by a hand-held, personal spray humidifier specially designed by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Research Department and bottling facility that emits a pure, pH balanced, 100% water mist for rehydrating eyes.”
Sharon Kleyne recommends that computer users keep spray bottles of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® at or near computer work stations whether at home, at work or at one’s favorite coffee shop. She also suggests carrying a bottle in the laptop bag when on the road. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and was successfully market-tested in more than 70,000 outlets including pharmacies, high-end retail outlets, first responders, police departments, hospitals, schools and the military.
“A recent report announced that there are 3.5 billion computer users in the world,” said Sharon Kleyne. “That’s a lot of dry eye disease and Computer Vision syndrome! Still,” Kleyne continued, “computers are such an integral part of our daily lives, but nothing can replace your eyes and eye sight. Protect yourself from Computer Vision Syndrome and dry eye disease with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®.”
