Water Advocate and Radio Host Shares Wisdom about Swollen Eyes. Water Life Science® Technology Mists Swollen Eye Symptoms Away.
Sharon 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®, says that swollen eyes are one of the most common symptoms of winter dry eye.
Kleyne says that swollen eyes can refer to “blepharitis,” which is inflammation of the eyelids, “conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the ocular conjunctiva, the layer of living tissue over the eyes that contain blood vessels, or to “carunculitis, ” which is inflammation of the lacrimal caruncle, the little fleshy spot in the inner corner of the eye. Inflammation of any or all of these, Kleyne teaches, are frequent symptoms of dry eye syndrome, which is far more common in winter than in any other season. Kleyne, an internationally respected advocate of water, research and new water technology, cautions that blepharitis, conjunctivitis and carunculitis can have other causes in addition to dry eye disease. However, even when the ultimate cause of swollen eyes is not dry eye, all three conditions have the potential to create dry eye and induce other dry eye symptoms such as redness, itching, burning, blurring, fatigue and debilitating headache.
Swollen eyes love winter because colder air is not capable of holding as much gasified water vapor, also called humidity, as warmer air. The lower the atmospheric humidity, the greater is the tendency of liquid water in the vicinity to evaporate. This especially includes the water in the eyes. In addition, more time is spent indoors in winter. Cold air that is artificially heated will not acquire additional humidity without a water source such as a humidifier.
Kleyne, also the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, cautions that inflammatory hormones can play a central role in swollen dry eyes. When the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99% water, loses a portion of its water to excessive evaporation, contact with dehydrating airborne irritants, tear and lipid gland malfunction or disease, inflammatory hormones are produced. These hormones cause the tear film to lose more water, which produces even more inflammatory hormones. Blepharitis, Kleyne stresses, is also common and can have many causes. Regardless, the lipid or oil secreting meibomian glands, located within the eyelid, are almost always involved. Lipid glands produce oils that act as a barrier to slow or prevent water evaporation from the eyes.
To relieve dry eye symptoms and soothe swollen eyes, Kleyne suggests supplementing and replenishing lost tear film moisture with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only product on the global market that contains 100 percent pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® provides immediate, painless relief for inflamed eyelids, conjunctivae and carunculae conditions. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied to the eyes as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier that is easy and fun to use. “When your eyes become swollen in winter, or in any season,” says Kleyne, “get immediate relief with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.”
