Radio Host Sharon Kleyne Poses Eye Questions for Radio Listeners. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne’s Calls for Basic Eye Awareness.
Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, enjoys a reputation around the world as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. Kleyne also stresses health education, and recently she asked a radio audience, “What is the eye?”
You might think the answer is simple, yet the more you ponder the question, the more complex the answer appears to be. Another question that might be asked: “What do you know about the eye?” Most would probably answer quickly, “I see through the eye.” That’s true, but it tells us nothing about the eye. Kleyne believes we should all know more about this most important body organ.
Sharon Kleyne, America’s leading water educator, researcher and advocate and the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, wants you to know that the eye possesses a two hundred degree viewing angle and can perceive ten million colors. The eye is small, approximately one inch deep, one inch wide and 0.9 inches tall. Kleyne wants you to understand that the eye’s job is to detect light, then send signals via the optic nerve to the brain. The eye makes possible light perception and vision; because of the eye, we can differentiate between colors and depth.
When we study the anatomy of the eye, we discover the following parts:
*Cornea—a dome-like, clear structure on the front of the eye that is responsible for two-thirds of the refracting power of the eye;
*Conjunctiva—a mucus membrane covering the eye surface and the inner segment of the eyelids;
*Iris—two-muscled, pigmented tissue controlling pupil constriction and dilation; also controls the amount of light allowed into the eye;
*Sclera—the white, tough outer covering of the globe of the eye;
*Pupil—then black hole in the middle of the iris allowing light to pass through to the retina;
*trabecular meshwork—tissue around the base of the cornea that drains the aqueous humor into drainage tubes and into the blood system;
*Anterior Chamber—fluid-filled sack between the iris and the cornea’s inner surface, which is filled with endothelium; an aqueous humor fluid fills this chamber;
*Crystalline Lens—fibrous tissue that changes shape to increase or decrease its power to delineate between near and intermediate objects;
*Ciliary Body—a muscle that contracts to change the shape of the lens, allowing focus on near objects; lens zonules attach this body to the Crystalline Lens; also produces aqueous humor that flows into the Anterior Chamber;
*Retina—light energy is captured by this light-sensitive tissue and transferred to the brain as nerve impulses;
*Optic Nerve—network of nerve cells receiving impulses from the nerve fiber layer on the retina and transferring nerve impulses to the brain.
Sharon Kleyne urges readers, consumers, listeners and other interested parties to visit http://www.biologicaqua.com for more information about this new water technology and water lifestyle. “Get educated,” says Kleyne. “Dry eye disease, poor lifestyle choices and lack of education can create numerous problems that could lead to serious eye disease, eye cancer and blindness.”
Sharon Kleyne loves educating people globally about the awful consequences of dry eye disease and the escalating water crisis. Yet Kleyne insists that everyone needs to know a lot more about the eye and how it works. “Imagine going blind,” she said, “and finding out it could have been prevented if only you had known more about how the eye works than you did. Wouldn’t that be horrible?” Kleyne also encouraged listeners and readers to create a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle.
