Contact Lens Users Need New Water Technology Says Dry Eye Fighter Sharon Kleyne

Contact Lens Users Demand Better Dry Eye Solution® for Dry Eye Disease. Contact Lens Users Turn to Water Researcher Sharon Kleyne for Dry Eye Solution® to Dry Eye Disease.

30 million contact lens users in the United States can’t all be wrong. They are overwhelmingly calling for a better dry eye solution® as they struggle with the symptoms of dry eye disease. Why? According to Water Life Science® creator Sharon Kleyne, it’s because many are finding it more and more painful to wear their contact lenses. Imagine wearing something over your eye that always feels like there is something gritty and irritating under it. That’s what it feels like to wear contact lenses while suffering from dry eye disease.

Dry eye disease occurs when the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, dries out as a result of excessive evaporation. This evaporation process can kick into overdrive as a result of pollution, artificial environments (air conditioning, forced air heating), wind, stress, pollen, lack of sleep, excessive TV, gaming and computer use, smoke, sun glare, allergies and other illnesses.

In the pursuit of relief, many people turn to saline solutions and eye drops for a dry eye solution®, but saline solutions and most eye drop solutions for dry eye disease merely trap moisture; they do not replenish and supplement moisture that is already lost. Sufferers of dry eye disease need to supplement their eyes with a product that will vanquish dryness and restore itching, tired and blurry eyes to health. Contact lens users will also discover instant relief with pure water supplementation of the eyes. In extreme cases, supplementing eyes that suffer from dry eye disease can help prevent millions of cases of blindness every year.

With her research center colleagues at Bio-Logic Aqua Research® Water Life Science®, the research center Kleyne founded and serves as research director, Kleyne has developed new water technology that includes the most successful dry eye solution® in the world. Kleyne’s new water research and innovations are globally respected and admired by contact lens users, scientists, physicians, teachers and researchers. Kleyne’s work in dry eye disease relief and prevention, water vapor evaporation and supplementation of the body’s water vapor has led to the creation of Bio-Logic Aqua Research® Water Life Science®’s signature product, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for dry eye disease relief and dry, dehydrated eyes.

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for dry eye disease relief is the only Trade Secret tissue culture grade water dry eye solution® on the planet,” says Kleyne. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied to the eyes as a patented micron-size mist by a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. It is so easy to apply that even a child can use it. Kleyne, also the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica, calls on contact lens users and others globally to become more proactive about protecting their vision, preventing blindness and more cases of dry eye disease.

Sun Protective Clothing

UV Sun Protective Clothing Can Save Your Life

Sharon Kleyne interview with Adam Perl (Higganum, CT), President of “Alex and Me,” UV sun protective clothing company. Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water*, June 23, 2008.

Summer has arrived, and with it an increased emphasis on sun and sunburn protection. The first line of defense against the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from summer sun is the clothing you wear. Education, and intelligent choices about sun protective clothing, no matter what the season, could save your life.

In an age of global climate change and increasingly dry air, the dangers of skin and eye exposure to solar radiation (sunshine) are increasing and the need to protect yourself – every time you go in the sun – is also increasing. Solar radiation, especially Ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation, can cause dry skin and dry eyes, damage the skin’s collagen to cause premature skin aging, and damage skin DNA to cause skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma.

Sharon Kleyne, Host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water syndicated radio talk show, urges everyone to apply sunscreen every time you go in the sun, summer or winter (the lotion in sunscreen also helps skin retain water, further increasing resistance to UV radiation), and to purchase and wear sun protective clothing.

Sharon’s interview (paraphrased and abbreviated):

Sharon Kleyne: Today’s guest is Adam Perl, President of “Alex and Me,” a company specializing in the sale of sun protective clothing brands designed to protect skin from ultraviolet (UV) rays. Good morning, Adam. Tell us about “Alex and Me.”

Adam Perl: “Alex and Me” has been in business for eleven years. Alex is the child of the original owner and the original product line was for children.

S: How did you become interested in sun protective clothing?

A: We market clothing in Australia, where UV protection is critical because of ozone layer thinning. Children there are not allowed outdoors at recess without at least wearing a hat made of Ultraviolet Protective Fabric (UPF). Our first UPF product was a brand of children’s clothing for Australia. We now carry three dozen UPF brands, for adults and children. We sell a lot of outdoor recreation clothing, especially for the beach.

S: Teach us about UPF ratings for fabric.

A: There are two approaches to UV protection. Fabric can be chemically treated or the manufacturer can tighten the weave (thread count) and increase the thickness and density so less sunlight penetrates. With treated cotton, the embedded chemical lasts 20 to 30 washings. Synthetic fabrics are not usually treated.

S: Treated with what? Are the chemicals allergenic or dehydrating?

A: That’s a good question. As it happens, the protection in 90% of our products is based on weave. Originally, UPF clothing was very heavy and dark. Now it’s much lighter and brighter. Dark colors absorb more light and can get hot. Lighter colors reflect light and are cooler.

S: How do UPF fabrics differ from normal fabrics?

A: They aren’t noticeably different. And a tighter weave does not add value to the product. What does add value is the UPF label. Companies such as Columbia Outfitters and Patagonia are now starting to make UPF sportswear.

S: How much sun protection can fabrics offer?

A: A dry white t-shirt offers the same protection as sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 10, which is moderate. A pair of blue denim jeans has an SPF of 1,700. Obviously, though, the jeans are hotter.

S: What is your most commonly purchased item?

A: Swim shirts, also called “rash guards.” They’re very light and look like surfer shirts. We also sell an enormous number of beach hats, with loose flaps over the neck and ears. We also have clothing for traveling, fishing, hiking, biking, gardening and other outdoor sports.

S: And your website?

A: http://www.alexandme.com.

S: Any final words?

A: Be proactive in the sun. Skin cancer from sun exposure may not show up for decades.

S: Thank you, Adam.
