China & Kleyne Join Forces To Fight Dry Eye Disease & Blindness

China Welcomes Support of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Creator Sharon Kleyne. Chinese Dry Eye Sufferers Flocking to Dry Eye Solution® Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

China has battled pollution and eye diseases for decades. China has the world’s largest population (four times that of the U.S.), the world’s second-largest economy, a population with disposable income and widespread ocular and dry eye issues largely as a result of pollution and other serious air quality problems. The country has made great strides in improving its air pollution, especially in the last fifteen years, yet 17 percent of the population (approximately 237 million people) still struggle with dry eye disease every year. In some parts of the country, the dry eye incidence rate climbs to as high as 31 percent. Some physicians even believe that virtually the entire Chinese population experiences occasional dry eye symptoms.

Internationally respected water researcher and educator Sharon Kleyne has studied dry and blindness in China and has visited the country several times to collaborate with physicians, researchers and political leaders. Kleyne, host of 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®, invented a dry eye solution® that is unique on the global market and has recently made it widely accessible in China.

Kleyne, also the founder and director of research at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, teaches that dry eye disease is a major tear deficiency disorder that causes discomfort, visual problems and instability of the tear film, which is naturally 99% water. This tear film instability due to over-evaporation is especially dangerous for it can lead to damage of the ocular surface. If the condition is not properly addressed, the end result can be blindness.

China’s dry eye and blindness crisis inspired Kleyne and her research center colleagues at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® to come up with a new water technology and pure water eye mist, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® that has recently been released in Mainland China with rousing success. Like Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® users in other countries have discovered, Chinese users find longer, soothing relief. The ophthalmology therapeutics market for treating dry eye disease and glaucoma in China is over U.S. 600 million with an annual growth rate of 5 percent, Kleyne pointed out.
“Tired, irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water,” said Kleyne, “which is what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops trap water on the eye’s tear film; they do not supplement and replenish the lost moisture of the tear film.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device. The device emits a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in the form of a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film and the dry skin around the eye. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both, and that is what the dry eyes of China need most. Kleyne recommended this brief animation about dry eye and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.
