Dry Eye – Why & What Is It?

Water Life Science® Creator Kleyne Explores Dry Eye Disease. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Is the Perfect Dry Eye Solution®.

Sharon Kleyne, hosts the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. For twelve years, Kleyne has used her on-air pulpit to teach listeners about dry eye disease, body water evaporation, earth’s atmospheric evaporation and pure water’s role in better health. Kleyne believes that education is the first step in preventing dry eye disease. Kleyne’s education efforts and research into Water Life Science® and new water technology have earned her the international respect of scientists, researchers, teachers and physicians. Kleyne teaches that air temperature and humidity, or atmospheric water vapor content, are the most important environmental factors responsible for dry eye in winter. Other factors, such as air pollution, wind chill and indoor environments also play significant roles.

Kleyne challenges listeners to think about why most people visit eye doctors in the U.S. and elsewhere around the world. It’s because of dry eye disease, and it is a condition that afflicts millions of people every year. Kleyne teaches that dry eye disease is the loss of a portion of the water content in the protective basal tear film that covers the eye. This tear film is normally 99% water. Should this diminish, for example, to 96%, dry eye symptoms such as blurred vision, itching and burning eyes, eye fatigue and headaches may be experienced. Kleyne notes that “environmental dry eye” or “evaporative dry eye,” resulting from external conditions is by far the most prevalent type of dry eye. According to Kleyne, dry eye can also be caused by illness, medication, allergies, tear gland dysfunction, autoimmune or inflammatory disorders, age, hormonal flux, menopause, contact lenses and Lasik surgery.

As many know, winter is the dry eye season because cooler air can’t hold as much atmospheric water vapor – also called “humidity” – as warmer air. The lower the air’s water vapor content, the greater the tendency of liquid water to evaporate into the atmosphere. This increased evaporative pressure affects lakes, puddles, lawns – and the eye’s tear film. When the tear film loses water to evaporation, dry eye symptoms occur.

Wind, especially cold wind, increases evaporative pressure on the skin and tear film. According to Kleyne, wind blows away the thin layer of warm, moist air that usually forms at the surface of the skin, face and eyelids. That’s why windy air feels colder than calm air. Air pollution, Kleyne reveals, increases the dehydrating effect of air on eyes no matter what the weather. Pollutants can dehydrate in two ways. First, they can be directly dehydrating to the ocular surface. Second, common airborne pollutants, such as carbon black and sulfur dioxide, tend to attract and accumulate the air’s water vapor molecules. The resulting water droplets, formed around pollution particles, often fall back to the ground without reaching the upper atmosphere’s cloud accumulation zone. That’s why large areas air pollution tend to have dryer air and less rainfall.

Kleyne, also the founder and research director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, recommends the only product of its kind on the global market for dry eye relief. Klyene developed Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® in her research center. The product contains 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh water and is applied to the eyes as a patented micron-size mist. The mist is delivered from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier that is easy and fun to use.
