Water Life Science® Creator Sharon Kleyne Reveals Symptoms of Eye Strain & Dry Eye. Sharon Kleyne Shares Dry Eye & Eye Fatigue Insights.
Dry eye disease challenges more than 30 million Americans every year and the numbers are climbing. At the same time, eye strain plagues millions more on a daily basis. Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, devotes her life and her groundbreaking research to finding new water technology solutions to both dry eye and eye strain. Kleyne, respected around the world for her research and discoveries in the field of water and evaporation of earth’s atmosphere and the body’s water vapor, has found come up with a dry eye solution® and tips to relieve and even eliminate eye strain.
Dry eye disease occurs when the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, evaporates to excess. When the tear film loses just 2 percent of its water, dry eye symptoms can appear. These symptoms include redness, swelling, itching, blurred vision, headaches and pus discharge. What causes this condition? Pollution, Kleyne points out, as well as wind, dust, artificial air environments, allergies, smoke and sun glare. Let untreated, dry eye can lead to blindness.
Kleyne, also the 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 eye strain has many of the same symptoms as dry eye disease. Eye strain can cause heightened anxiety and stress, and Kleyne says that we can blame, in part, the many hours a day we spend staring into tablets, computers, smart phones and televisions.
Extended computer use can wear watchers out and make eyes feel exhausted. For some people, using a computer for only two hours a day may cause symptoms of eye fatigue. If you use a computer all day at work and again when you go home, the risk increases exponentially. Computers dry out eyes and stress the tiny ciliary muscles in the iris. Staring at the bright light of a computer screen can cause tear film dehydration. Eyes also lose water because working at a computer without occasional breaks can cause the eye’s reflexive blink rate to drop dramatically (from 30 times a minute down to five). Office environments with forced-air heating and cooling, fluorescent lighting and insulated walls and windows also contribute to eye strain.
Kleyne urges better education for people around the world about the causes of eye strain and dry eye disease. Kleyne also recommends Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only product of its kind on the global market. Consisting of 100% pure, fresh, Trade Secret tissue culture grade water, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements and replenishes the eye’s tear film with a patented micron-size mist applied with a personal, portable hand-held humidifier.
Other factors that create eye strain include driving long hours, bright sunlight, dust, wind and even reading books, newspapers and magazines. Kleyne urges everyone to learn the causes of dry eye and eye strain. Steps you can take, according to Kleyne, to soothe eye strain are to step away from the computer every hour or so for a few minutes. Drink eight-to-ten glasses of water a day. Get plenty of sleep and moderate exercise. Eat a nutritious, healthy diet featuring dark, leafy greens and fruit, and avoid sugar whenever possible.
