Influenza Can Lead To Dry Eye Says Sharon Kleyne

Sharon Kleyne Encourages Proactive Eye Care Before Flu Season. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Soothes Dry Eye Symptoms.

Fall has arrived and with it comes influenza—the threat of the flu. Respected international researcher and educator Sharon Kleyne is well aware of the flu’s annual appearance and she warns that the eyes are open windows and doors for flu and cold viruses and bacteria. Taking care of one’s eyes, Kleyne believes, can and will help one to avoid illness. Kleyne knows that when you get the flu you are going to have to deal with fever and nausea, yet it is also important to take care of your eyes, too.

Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, teaches that the water in our eyes and skin is the first line of defense against the invasion of disease. That’s why doctors tell sick people to “drink plenty of water.” When a person becomes ill, the body, eyes and skin lose water and become dehydrated. Dehydration symptoms frequently begin at common disease entry points such as the eyes and mouth. Kleyne knows that common eye complaints at the onset of the flu and after, such as itching, burning, redness and watery eyes, are identical to the most common complaints accompanying dry eye disease.

Watery eyes, Kleyne explains, are a standard symptom of dry eye. They occur, in a dry eye patient, as a result of “reflex tearing” as the eyes’ attempt to compensate for the loss of water via evaporation in the basal tear film. It is especially important to keep the eyes’ protective tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, well hydrated. It’s ironic that winter may be the most challenging time of year to maintain a healthy tear film because more time is spent indoors where the air is drier and contains more bacteria.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, also recommends, for convenient and all-natural relief of dry eye symptoms a soothing, all-natural, pH balanced fresh water mist, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Containing Trade Secret tissue culture grade pure water and delivered to the eye as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, hand-held portable humidifier, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements the tear film’s diminished water content, alleviates tear film dehydration and relieves dry eye complaints.
