China Partners & Sharon Kleyne Battle Dry Eye Disease

China’s Air Quality Crisis Sparks Dry Eye Epidemic. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® in China Provides Relief for Millions of Dry Eye Sufferers.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and an international research expert on dry eye disease and eye water evaporation, is well aware of China’s serious dry eye problem. A frequent visitor to China and 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®, says that more than 175 million Chinese are currently affected by dry eye disease, with more swelling this number every day.

Kleyne explained that dry eye disease is a disorder of the tear film, which is 99 percent water, as a result of deficient tear production or excessive evaporation. This condition often leads to damage to the ocular system and even blindness. Symptoms include pain, discomfort, headaches, redness, swelling and poor vision. Depression, anxiety, strained home lives and missed days at work are also common in people suffering from dry eye disease. “The prevalence of dry eye in China is 17% of the total population of approximately 1.5 billion people,” Kleyne said. “This means that approximately 38,3000,000 Chinese are going to suffer from dry eye disease in 2017.”

At one time, China’s efforts to clean up its air pollution and deal with other factors contributing to the rise of dry eye disease were frustrated by the lack of a product that could bring sustained relief to sufferers. But cause for frustration greatly diminished when China and Kleyne agreed to bring Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to the Mainland. Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s licensing partners have been working closely with pharmaceutical companies and medical research centers in China and with China’s government to facilitate the launch of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only product of its kind in the world to supplement the tear film.

Tear film water supplementation is the only purpose of Nature’s Tear® EyeMist®. The product consists of Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh featuring a perfect pH balance. The water is delivered to the eye in the form of a patented, micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand- held humidifier. The mist droplets emulate natural, unpolluted humidity that the tear film readily absorbs. Kleyne’s Research Center discovered that two to five nanoliters of supplemental water to the eyes will supplement the tear film and soothe dry eye symptoms. If used often enough, Nature’s Tear® EyeMist® will also enhance breathing because of the pure water mist in the immediate atmosphere, an added benefit in air conditions challenged by pollution.

According to Kleyne, the policy of the Government of China is to encourage the availability of personal health protection devices that allow individuals to defend against air pollution while the government works to alleviate the sources of the pollution. Kleyne is proud of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s role in this important collaboration and looks forward to expanding the partnership. In fact, reports from China are encouraging as thousands of units of Nature’s Tear® EyeMist® have been sold in the first weeks of the product’s arrival in the country.

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.

Computer Vision Syndrome Can Trigger Dry Eye Disease

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Soothes Computer Eyes & Socks Dry Eye Disease. Radio Host Sharon Kleyne Warns Against Excessive Computer Use.

There is no denying that computers have changed the world forever. Not only have they brought people closer together, they have also made it possible to share more information and make more discoveries than ever before. Unfortunately, computers have also done damage on a wide scale to human eyes that stare for hours every day into a computer’s radiation gaze.

According to Sharon Kleyne, 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® and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, computer vision syndrome affects more than 90% of people who spend three or more hours a day at their computers. This vast number of Geeks and casual computer users suffer from headaches, sore necks, blurred vision, chronic eye pain and Dry Eye Syndrome (DES).

All of these afflictions are bad enough, but Dry Eye Syndrome is the number one threat to eye health and a leading precursor of blindness in the world. “Using over-the-counter artificial tear solutions reduces the effects of DES,” says Kleyne, “but they only act temporarily. In fact, in the long run they make matters worse, inflaming the eye by chemically evaporating even more of the eye’s natural water vapor.”

Kleyne has a few suggestions for dealing with Computer Vision Syndrome. She suggests closing one’s eyes for twenty seconds at least every half-hour and focusing on an object twenty feet away at least every twenty minutes. She also advocates elimination of bright overhead lighting and elimination of screen glare.

“Yet,” she adds, “the only proven, non-invasive aid for Dry Eye Syndrome is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Produced by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, Nature’sTears® EyeMist® consists of 100% Trade Secret, pure tissue culture grade fresh water delivered to the eyes, with no discomfort or irritation, by a hand-held, personal humidifier that emits a patented micron-size pure, pH balanced, 100% water mist for rehydrating eyes.” Kleyne recommends that computer users keep spray bottles of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® near computer work stations whether at home, at work or at one’s favorite coffee shop. She also suggests carrying a bottle in the laptop bag when on the road. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and was successfully test-marketed in more than 70,000 outlets including pharmacies, high-end retail outlets, first responders, police departments, hospitals, schools and the military.

“Computers are here forever,” says Kleyne, “but nothing can replace your precious eyes and eye sight.” Protect yourself from Computer Vision Syndrome with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®.

Sharon Kleyne Revisits New Dry Eye Medication

Sharon Kleyne Offers Advice to Those Using Xiidra for Dry Eye Symptoms. One Year Ago FDA Approved Xiidra for Dry Eye Disease.

It’s been just over a year since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Xiidra for the treatment of Dry Eye Disease. According to the FDA at that time, “Xiidra is the first medication in a new class of drugs, called lymphocyte function-associated antigen 1 (LFA-1) antagonist.”

16 million people a year are diagnosed in the U.S. with dry eye disease. Xiidra arrived on the market as an expensive option that usually took two weeks of use before people noticed positive results. Others reported less spectacular outcomes and some complained that the dry eye condition actually got worse.

This is not unusual. Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, reminds people that no two sets of eyes are alike. Kleyne also has a recommendation for Xiidra users. 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®, suggests misting your eyes with her program’s sponsor product, then applying the Xiidra.

The new water technology behind Kleyne’s recommendation is simple. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, a Trade Secret tissue culture grade water, replenishes tear film eye water lost to evaporation due to allergies, dry air, wind, artificial environments and contamination of earth’s water vapor by pollution; Xiidra traps moisture in the eye but does not replenish or supplement it. Therefore, applying Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and following it with an application of Xiidra will slow down water vapor evaporation of the eye’s tear film. “Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®,” said Kleyne, “is pure water that contains no chemicals and produces no side effects.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the first product of its kind to gain access to the medical field after test marketing in 70,000 drugstores and retail stores. This Trade Secret tissue culture grade water is applied to the eyes by a hand-held personal humidifier that emits a painless, soothing, patented micron-size mist. The mist replenishes evaporation-depleted water vapor of the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99% water.

Dry Eye Disease afflicts millions of people around the world, reducing productivity, costing billions of dollars a year and sometimes results in blindness. Kleyne and thousands of ophthalmologists, optometrists and physicians worldwide encourage Dry Eye Disease sufferers to use Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, and also try combining it with new Dry Eye Disease medication.

Philip Y. Paden, M.D. of the Paden Eye Care Center in Medford, Oregon, says “Before the introduction of (Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®), I never had an enthusiastic response to any dry eye product. Ophthalmologists and optometrists had been hoping for a better product because these unhappy patients are a several-times-a-day reality in our practices.”

With Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, applied separately or combined with other Dry Eye Disease medication, sufferers of Dry Eye Disease reap the benefits of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®.

Sharon Kleyne Wants To End Blindness In China

Chinese (NGDOs) Nongovernmental Development Organizations Battle Blindness. Water Educator Sharon Kleyne Says Chinese Blindness Can Be Prevented.

According to Sharon Kleyne’s research in evaporation and dry eye disease, blindness is out of control on planet earth and nowhere is it more devastating than China with its immense population.

Recent UN studies reveal that China accounts for 18 percent of the world’s blind population. No other country comes close. Major causes of blindness in China include cataracts, cornea diseases, trachoma glaucoma and several other causes (such as an ongoing vitamin A deficiency) of blindness in children. At this time, cataracts are the main cause of blindness in China. Mainly a disease associated with aging, cataracts are responsible for fifty percent of China’s blind cases—close to three million people. Blindness in China is not only a health and social problem; it is an economic problem, too. Government statistics suggest that blindness costs China between fifteen and twenty billion dollars a year in lost productivity. Yet, Kleyne believes that forty to fifty percent of annual blindness cases in China are preventable.

In 1984, the Chinese Ministry of Health crafted a series of five-year plans to provide cataract surgery throughout the country. Under these plans 600,000 cataract surgeries were performed between 1991 and 1994. Still, because of China’s rising population over age 60 (in 2020, it is estimated that 240,000 million Chinese will be 60 or older), the government projects that 5 million people will be blind in 2020 due to cataracts. “This trend has prompted an inspired global response,” said Kleyne, “spearheaded by the World Health Organization.” A WHO Alliance for the Global Elimination of Trachoma (GET 2020) was established in 1997, which constitutes an integral part of Vision 2020. This alliance includes non-governmental organizations playing an ever greater role in prevention of preventable blindness in China. Presently, 12 NGDOs actively collaborate with WHO and the Ministry of Health and support eye care delivery in 19 of the 31 provinces in China. Among them (in alphabetical order):

• Amity Foundation (China)
• Asia Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness (Hong Kong, China)
• Christoffel-Blindenmission (Christian Blind Mission International (CBM), Germany)
• Foresight (Australia)
• Foundation for Eye Care Himalaya (The Netherlands)
• The Fred Hollows Foundation (Australia)
• Helen Keller International (USA)
• The Lions Club International (USA)
• ORBIS International (USA)
• Singapore National Eye Centre (Singapore)
• Seva Foundation (USA)
• Tibet Vision Project (USA)

These NGDOs have agreed to work together within Vision 2020 towards the common goal of eliminating preventable blindness in China by 2020.

Sharon 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®, is also doing more than her fair share to prevent blindness in China. Kleyne is proud of the fact that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the signature product of her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua Research® Water Life Science®, was recently released in China. “We think that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® will contribute to eliminating preventable blindness,” said Kleyne, “which has been such a scourge on Chinese health since the Peoples’ Republic of China came into existence in 1949.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100% pure, Trade Secret tissue culture grade water and no additives of any kind. The water is pH-balanced and biocompatible with the natural tear film of your eye. This globally patented micron-size mist, applied with a personal, hand-held humidifier, supplements the tear film while also moisturizing the skin of the eyelids and the skin around the eyes.

Why is this so important? Because your eyes are constantly dehydrating as a result of excessive evaporation. This evaporation is your enemy! Did you know that your tear film is 99% water? Well, it is. As it dries out, you’ll experience red eyes, itchy eyes, headaches, blurred vision and other awful symptoms. In fact, if you allow evaporation to go on long enough, you run a great risk of going blind. The only way to avoid these conditions is to supplement your eyes several times a day with pure water. Not tap water! Pure water.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, created by international water advocate Sharon Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is easy to use. (For a demonstration, visit http://www.EyeMist.com.) With eyes open, hold the canister (your personal humidifier) at the side of your face, near your eyes. Press the top of the canister to release the mist. With the canister 8 to 12 inches from your face, move the mist across the eyes in a one-to-two-second sweep. For natural humidity absorption, do not mist closer than 8 inches. Brief blinking is ok. Most people fully realize the convenience of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® when they use it while driving. There is no muss and no fuss and it’s infinitely safer than using eye drops!

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is safe for infants, too and it does cause eye make-up to run. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® has a four-year shelf life and can be used as often as desired. Optometrists, physicians, research scientists and ophthalmologists around the world recommend Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® above any other eye product.

Our Evaporating Atmosphere & Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Teaches Importance of Atmosphere. Sharon Kleyne Recommends Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for Dry Eye Disease.

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America is sounding the alarm. “Our atmosphere is not just some vague Thing up there over our heads,” Kleyne said. “It’s a living organism that is mostly water and it is all around us. It is everywhere.”

“We need the water vapor in that atmosphere when we breathe,” Kleyne continued, “in order to stay healthy and alive, but this life source is in trouble because of all the pollution we send into it.” Kleyne is especially concerned about the eyes, which are so vulnerable. “Dry eye disease has become a multi-billion dollar business,” said Kleyne’ “billions of people worldwide suffer from these terrible symptoms.” The symptoms include allergies, smog and other air pollution, artificial environments (air conditioning), headache and itchiness, Dr eye disease can even result in blindness and such cases are on the rise,” said Kleyne.

Fortunately there is one product and one product only available on the global marketplace that addresses dry eye symptoms with effective, 100% pure water. Developed by Kleyne and the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® soothes the symptoms of dry eye disease with a micron-mist of 100% pure tissue culture grade water. When the tear lenses in your eyes, which are naturally 99% water, have lost too much of their natural moisture as a result of evaporation, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements the tear lenses and restores healthy natural water levels in the eyes. Evaporation itself is a natural life process, yet you must supplement, or replace, the evaporated eye water at least several times a day.

Thousands of international optometrists, physicians, research scientists and ophthalmologists recommend Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for people suffering from dry eye disease. Unlike Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, eye drop manufacturers must admit that their product solutions for dry eye symptoms all contain chemicals. The chemicals can make the product habit-forming; they can even make worse your dry eye condition. Because eye drops contain chemicals, they can only trap moisture. Eye drops cannot replace or replenish water that evaporates from your eye. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® always improves dry eye symptoms because it doesn’t just trap the water that is left in your eyes; Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® replenishes and supplements the water your eyes need to feel good and function at peak efficiency. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100% pure tissue culture grade water and nothing else. There are no chemicals that irritate and sting.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is easier and safer to apply than eye drops, too. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied as a patented micron-size mist from your own personal, hand-held humidifier. It is so fun and easy to apply, any child can do it (and millions do). Just gently let your hand float back and forth in front of your eyes and spray. Feel the soothing, instant relief from itching, throbbing, dirt-and-dust inflamed eyes? Within seconds of applying Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, you will be a true believer in this internationally acclaimed product.

You can mist your eyes with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® as many times a day as you feel the need to. You can order Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® today. Just go to http://www.Amazon.com, http://www.Walgreens.com or http://www.naturestears.com.
