Excessive Evaporation Causes Dry Eye Disease

Water Advocate Kleyne Fights Dehydration of the Eyes. Eyes Must Be Supplemented with Pure Water Says Water Researcher Kleyne.

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® founder, Sharon Kleyne, has spent more than two decades educating others about dehydration and dry eye disease. Her internationally respected research has led to breakthroughs in the relief of dry eye and understanding the role excessive evaporation plays in a host of illnesses and diseases.

Evaporation is the change in the structure of water from a liquid state into a vapor or gaseous state. All liquid and frozen water evaporates. However, environmental factors such as dry air and warm temperatures accelerate the evaporation process. Evaporation of body water vapor into the atmosphere occurs constantly for all living things. As a result, the objective of living organisms is to slow down the evaporation process by supplementing the lost body water vapor with pure, fresh water. When the rate of water evaporation exceeds the organism’s ability to replace the water, death will eventually occur. You and any other living organism whose body water vapor content has dropped below the optimal level required to maintain healthy body functions is considered dehydrated.

Sharon Kleyne and research center colleagues at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® have discovered that dry eye is a dehydration disease resulting from accelerated evaporation. The specific role of evaporation in dry eye is explained in the accompanying excerpts from Tear Film and the Treatment of Dry eye Disease, by William D. Mathers, M.D., a continuing education course for pharmacists sponsored by RxSchool.com and Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. The sections in the book on misting and evaporation were based on unpublished research conducted by Dr. Mathers at Oregon Health and Sciences University – Casey Eye Institute.

Role of evaporation in tear film maintenance

All liquid-to-gas interfaces, according to Dr. Mathers, have a vapor pressure that is temperature dependent and controls the rate of the liquid-to-gas transition. Water, therefore, evaporates into the air until the vapor pressure equilibrates and the air is saturated. This is achieved only when the humidity reaches 100%, which rarely occurs. The surface of the eye (which is 99% water) is subject to evaporative loss that would include the total normal tear production if the surface were not protected by the lipid (oil) layer. A normal lipid layer reduces evaporation extremely effectively, by 95%, and keeps the eye wet.

Measuring evaporation

Evaporation from the ocular surface, Dr. Mathers explains, can be measured by isolating the air around the eye and monitoring the rise in relative humidity. Evaporation will cause the humidity to rise and the rate of rise reflects the evaporation rate. The normal rate of evaporation from the surface of the eye is 15 x 10-2 grams/cm2/second. This was determined from Dr. Mathers’ work, but there has been reasonable agreement between most research groups that have investigated evaporation. A normal tear film evaporation rate is the equivalent of 0.15 microliters per minute. This amounts to 36% of the combined total of tear flow and evaporation in a normal subject, by Dr. Mathers’ estimation. The normal eye loses a relatively small amount to evaporation.

Evaporative dry eye

Evaporation is an important cause of dry eye for two reasons:

1. Some environments are very dry such as deserts, winter air heated to room temperature and airline cabins. Liquid water is most likely to evaporate in the presence of dry air, warm temperatures and wind.

2. Evaporation rates can increase dramatically in some subjects with meibomian gland dysfunction (which produces the lipid layer).

The surface of the eye would quickly dry out were it not for the protective effect of the lipid layer that reduces evaporation. In the normal eye, only a small percentage of tear production evaporates, but in dry eye this can increase to include nearly the total amount produced. Subjects with dry eye that have had both upper and lower punctum occluded usually do not suffer from epiphora (tearing) because all their tears either evaporate or are absorbed by the conjunctiva.

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®, wants everyone to take the time to understand these facts shared by Dr. Mathers. Vision is a precious gift. All of us need to be proactive about our ocular health and we need to know the facts in order to do that well.

Sharon Kleyne Steps Up After Emergency Call From North Pole

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Saves Annual Holiday Global Tour. Sharon Kleyne & Research Colleagues Rescue the Holidays.

Sharon Kleyne, America’s leading water educator, researcher and advocate, and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice of America, was more than a little surprised to receive an unexpected call while on the air recently.

The caller, a Mrs. Kringle, sounded upset. She said she was phoning from the North Pole because her husband was severely dehydrated, suffering from dry eye disease symptoms that needed Sharon Kleyne’s help. Kleyne, international Water Life Science® advocate and founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, told Mrs. Kringle that her research department had launched an all-out assault on Dry Eye Disease, which affects billions worldwide, costs hundreds of millions and can lead to total blindness. “Dry eye disease is the number one target for our research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®,” said Kleyne, “and we’re going to get after it with everything we’ve got. And don’t worry,” she added. “We have just what your husband needs!”

Sharon Kleyne, globally respected and admired by scientists, doctors and researchers for her work in water vapor evaporation and supplementation of the body’s water vapor, has single-mindedly carried the torch of water research and new technology since the 1980s when she launched her first product, Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® for dehydrated skin, followed by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s signature product, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for dry, dehydrated eyes. “They are still the only Trade Secret tissue culture grade water products to treat over-evaporation of the skin and dry eye disease on the planet,” said Kleyne. A unique remedy for dry eye disease, Nature’s Tears EyeMist, applied to the eyes by a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% water micron mist, is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and was successfully market-tested in more than 70,000 outlets.

In less than the twinkling of an eye, Sharon Kleyne and Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® special-delivered a year’s supply of both products to Mr. & Mrs. Kris Kringle at the North Pole. “In addition,” Kleyne announced, “we included our signature wound wash, Bio-Med Wash®, because we’d received reports of numerous injuries to elves and reindeer. Just spraying a wound with this product,” Kleyne added, “will keep the shop open, that sleigh en route and Mr. Kringle on schedule!”

After Mrs. Kringle’s on-air call, Sharon Kleyne reassured her listeners that the holidays will go on as scheduled. “We have the eye mist, body mist and wound wash to see to that!” Kleyne said, and signed off wishing everyone a very good night!

Sharon Kleyne Warns That Polluted Humidity Causes Dehydration

Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Wants Dirty Humidity Cleaned Up. Water Researcher Sharon Kleyne Says Water in Air Is Good, But Not Polluted Water.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice of America, recently called attention to the crisis of humidity that is tainted by pollution.”Even deep in winter,” Kleyne said, “our air can become thick with humidity. That’s not necessarily bad,” Kleyne continued, “because moist air means that there is less chance of debilitating conditions brought on by dehydration. Still, it’s no good at all if moist air is polluted, and all too often we’re facing just that.”

Many people around the world are well aware of the dangers of air pollution. If you exercise strenuously on a smoggy day, for example, every breath you take will feel like a knife is being plunged into your lungs. However, many do not have as clear a grasp of the danger of polluted humidity. For more than two decades, Water Life Science® lifestyle creator and advocate Kleyne has studied the relationship between humidity, air pollution and dehydration.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has found that the autumn and winter seasons generally bring more rainfall and moist air. At the same time, more frigid air accumulates at night, increasing the possibility of the formation of an “inversion layer”. This cold air at night traps and concentrates the warmer, more humid and contaminated daytime air underneath. Kleyne’s research also shows that absorption of water vapor droplets from the air makes up a significant percentage of the body’s total water intake. The more humid and cleaner the air, Kleyne explains, the more direct surface absorption will occur. Conversely, water may be lost through the body’s surface if the humidity is too low or the air’s water vapor/humidity content is over-polluted.

According to Sharon Kleyne, airborne particulate matter, whether naturally occurring or man-made, tends to attract and accumulate the minute water droplets entering the air as evaporated or “gasified” water. Kleyne’s research suggests that particulate matter begins attracting water vapor droplets almost immediately. :If the air is contaminated,” said Kleyne, “the humidity will also be contaminated.” Sulfur dioxide and carbon black, two common pollutants, are particularly nasty when combined with water vapor. Pollutants such as sulfur dioxide can chemically alter the water so that it is less beneficial when it lands on the body surface. Also, carbon black soot, fly ash and other pollutants are desiccants that have a dehydrating effect when they land on the body or lungs, interfering with the body’s surface absorption of water vapor. More natural airborne particulates tend to have a more balanced effect on dehydration.

Sharon Kleyne advocates more research into the relationship between humidity, dehydration and air pollution while also championing reduction of the amount of pollution released into the air. Kleyne continues to advocate drinking eight-to-ten full glasses of pure fresh water each day.

Sharon Kleyne Says That Earth Is Too Dry

Water Life Science® Lifestyle Creator Sharon Kleyne Fights Dryness. Water Research Leader Sharon Kleyne Sounds Warns Against Dry Earth.

Sharon Kleyne has been the primary global opponent of Dryness for over two decades, and she has no intention of letting up now. Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice of America, sounds the alarm that our beautiful blue planet earth is drying up at a frightening rate. “I’ve conducted groundbreaking research, discovered new water technology and fought endless battles against dryness of the body and of the earth itself,” Kleyne says, “yet we are still in a perilous position when it comes to our ability to sustain life on this planet.”

“As fresh ground water and atmospheric water diminish,” says Sharon Kleyne, “and pollution runs rampant, precious, life-giving moisture fights a losing battle. It needs our help. When the atmosphere’s water vapor over-evaporates,” Kleyne continues, “the body’s defenses become compromised, threatening health with a laundry list of diseases and maladies.” Kleyne points out that dryness and evaporation lead to dry eye disease, allergies, skin conditions, organ stress and failure, sleeplessness, fatigue, cancer, diabetes and many other afflictions that will not only ruin your day but may eventually end your life.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, wants everyone to know that the solutions to our health problems lie in the water itself. “We have got to get the government to come up with plans and realistic timetables to protect surface water,” Kleyne says. “We can’t keep sitting on our hands while watching it runs right off into the oceans. We need to build up the water reserves below the surface, too” Kleyne adds, “so we can make sure that every child, woman and man has enough clean water.”

Sharon Kleyne is America’s leading water researcher and new water technology expert. She has taught millions of people around the world about earth’s water vapor (we cannot breathe without it) and the body’s water vapor (if we dry out too much, we die). Yet, she is frustrated by what she perceives as general apathy about the situation. “People have a tendency,” Kleyne said, “to say ‘oh, it’s only water’, but what do you think these same people will say when suddenly the water is gone?” Unless we act and act quickly, Kleyne fears that we may see international wars waged over water and water rights.

Sharon Kleyne wants people to get serious about this Doomsday scenario and their health, yet that is going to require a lot more training and awareness about water and all that it does for you and the natural world. “Remember that we are 70% to 75% water,” Kleyne says. “Our organs are mostly water; our skin is mostly water; the tear lenses of our eyes are 99% water! Without water supplementation,” Kleyne continues, “you can’t see; your organs can’t function, and you can’t breathe. You need that water vapor in the air to breathe.”

Sharon Kleyne insists that scientists must expand water research; that research will lead to new beneficial breakthroughs. Kleyne also looks to the schools, asking educators at all levels to develop curricula that will teach the technology of water to everyone. “We can’t afford to wait on any of this any longer,” Kleyne warns. “We’ve dragged our heels and been distracted for far too long.” Finally, Kleyne would like to see children organize and become much more active in new water technology. “No matter our age,” Kleyne concludes, “we need to step up and embrace a new Water Life Science® lifestyle. It’s exciting, and it is necessary.”

Sharon Kleyne Blasts Dehydration Caused By Evaporation

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Sounds the Alarm about Dehydration. Sharon Kleyne Says Children & Elderly at Great Risk.

Water Life Science® leader Sharon Kleyne is concerned about the way so many people ignore the perils of dehydration or take a casual approach to this potential killer. Millions of people around the world die every year from dehydration that is the result of excessive evaporation of body water vapor, and the most vulnerable among them are children and senior citizens.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health, the nationally syndicated radio show on Voice of America, listed the symptoms of dehydration, and they are terrifying! In infants and children, the danger signs include dry mouth and tongue, no tears when crying, no wet diapers for three hours, sunken eyes and cheeks, a sunken soft spot on the top of the skull and listlessness or irritability. In adults, dehydration symptoms can include extreme thirst, less frequent urination, dark-colored urine, fatigue, dizziness and confusion. Diarrhea that lasts many hours also indicates dehydration. “If these symptoms are not promptly relieved,” said Kleyne, “the result can be death.”

Whether one is very active or rather sedentary, Sharon Kleyne urged a daily routine of drinking eight to ten glasses of water every day. She also encouraged people to drink the entire glass each time rather than sip. “This will give you the greatest benefit of the glass of water,” she said. “Earth and our global population face an escalating water crisis that threatens all life,” Kleyne added. “We’re losing too much fresh water on the planet every day,” Kleyne said, “because of excessive water evaporation. This water evaporation threatens human health as a result of dehydration.”

Sharon Kleyne believes that the best way to combat this crisis is to inform more and more people about the issues, about water and water vapor evaporation, about the symptoms of dehydration and the steps one can take to avoid it. These steps include supplementing the body and eyes several times a day with Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the only pure water product to treat over-evaporation of the tear film covering the eye, (itself 99% water) and dry eye disease on the planet.”Eye drops and saline solutions are only temporary fixes. They can blur eyesight and increase irritation over the long run,” said Kleyne.

Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is also available for supplementing body vapor loss of the skin (70% to 76% water), and should be used daily by those wishing to avoid dehydration. In addition, Bio-Med Wash® is the first portable, non-saline, non-chemical, emergency eye, burn and wound wash product test-marketed and released worldwide. The Trade Secret tissue culture grade water that neither burns nor blurs is not administered as droplets. Instead, the company’s products are applied to the affected area as a painless, pure micron mist, or spray, from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier that is easy and even fun to use.

Sharon Kleyne, respected around the world by scientists and researchers as a leader of new water technology, pointed out that in the past twenty years, diarrhea caused by unsanitary water has killed more children than all the people lost to armed conflict since World War II. “Ultimately,” Kleyne said, “they died of dehydration due to excessive body water vapor evaporation.”

Sharon Kleyne has argued for decades that dehydration is a major global killer, and ample recent studies back her up. The good news, though, is that dehydration can be defeated with more awareness and education, and with more clean water that becomes available to every man, woman and child on the planet.

Sharon Kleyne’s Enemy: DRY

Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Crusades Against DRY.

Sharon Kleyne Defends Water Against DRY.

America’s leading research expert and Water Life Science® advocate, Sharon Kleyne, is rededicating herself to the eradication of the word DRY and all it stands for. “Other than its association with a good martini,” Kleyne said, “Dry is the most insidious word in the English language!”

Sharon Kleyne explained that the word DRY carries the negative connotation of dehydration due to evaporation. “Deserts are dry,” said Kleyne. “Lifeless planets are dry, and when our beautiful blue earth suffers excessive evaporation, all life on the planet is threatened.” Kleyne described how earth’s water vapor provides the water we need to breathe in our air. It also becomes ground water, which is susceptible to excessive evaporation due to pollution and climate change. These factors also negatively impact the body’s water vapor.

Human bodies that dehydrate due to excessive evaporation suffer numerous diseases and illnesses including melanoma and other cancers, diabetes, allergies and maladies of the eye, such as dry eye disease. Sharon Kleyne, host of the syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program on Voice of America, points out that dry eye disease is a 2.1 billion dollar global industry and that billions worldwide suffer from it. Dry eye disease occurs when the eye’s tear film, which is 99% water, over-evaporates. When this happens, and even before, Kleyne pointed out, the eyes should be supplemented with replenishing moisture. Otherwise, dry eye disease can and often does lead to more serious conditions, including blindness.

In the same way, Sharon Kleyne said, people around the world are suffering more dry skin diseases and ailments than ever before. Like the eyes, Kleyne continued, “the skin should be supplemented several times a day with replenishing moisture.

Sharon Kleyne, the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and one of the world’s great champions of new water technology and research, urges everybody to use her company’s signature products, the only such products on earth that consist of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water and are applied to eyes and skin not as drops, but as a fine micron mist from a handheld, portable personal humidifier.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the only pure water product to treat over-evaporation of the tear film covering the eye, which is 99% water, and dry eye disease on the planet.”Eye drops and saline solutions are only temporary fixes. They can blur eyesight and increase irritation over the long run,” said Kleyne. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is available for supplementing body vapor loss of the skin (70% to 76% water). In addition, Bio-Med Wash® is the first portable, non-saline, non-chemical, emergency eye, burn and wound wash product test-marketed and released worldwide. The Trade Secret tissue culture grade water that neither burns nor blurs is not administered as droplets. Instead, like the company’s other products, Bio-Med Wash® treats a wound with a painless, pure micron mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier that is easy and even fun to use.

Dr. Gerald Pollack likes to point out,” said Sharon Kleyne, “that we’re living, walking batteries charged by the energy of the water vapor in our bodies and all around us. We’re not chunks of DRY ice. We’re not waterless stick figures made of wood or stone. We are fluid. There is nothing about our natural condition that is DRY. In fact,” Kleyne concluded, “DRY is our sworn enemy.”

Sharon Kleyne’s Evaporation Solution

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®

Water vapor supplement and Water Life Science® advocate, Sharon Kleyne, is worried about people dehydrating to the point of serious illness due to evaporation. “We’re all living batteries,” said Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio program. “Each of us is charged with the energy of earth’s water vapor in the air we breathe. Our batteries need that water!”

Sharon Kleyne explained how the process of evaporation of the body’s water vapor begins the moment one leaves the womb and ends only in death. “EVAPORATION is the key,” said Kleyne. “Our possessions and wealth don’t keep us alive;” Kleyne added, “the atmospheric and body water vapor do that.” This is not idle news when so many serious, man-made factors—pollution, global warming, artificial environments—are combining to speed up the evaporation process. Sharon Kleyne pointed out that when we become over-evaporated—dehydrated—it diminishes our health and productivity. “If we don’t improve our understanding of the process of evaporation,” Kleyne cautions, “we run the risk of doing more damage to our already threatened water supplies and resources. If that is allowed to happen, we could endanger all life on earth.”

Sharon Kleyne wants more universal education about water and the evaporation process, and she wants it sooner than later. “Unfortunately,” she admitted, “people still don’t understand why they should make water supplementation of the body’s water vapor a priority. They are horribly misinformed.” She asked people to think of that battery image again. Then she asked what happens to your car when the battery runs out of water? Everyone knows the answer, of course; the car stops running. The same is true of your car’s radiator. “It’s also true of the human body,” said Kleyne, when it is dehydrated as a result of over-evaporation of its water vapor.”

“I supplement the water vapor of my eyes and skin with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®,” said Sharon Kleyne. “They’re the only Trade Secret tissue culture grade water products to treat over-evaporation and dry eye disease on the planet. But education is the key,” Kleyne concluded. “We will be in big trouble soon if we don’t do a much better job educating the general public about evaporation and the water mist cycle.”
