Sharon Kleyne Monitoring Human Testing of New Dry Eye Drug

Water Advocate Kleyne Says Jury Still Out on Lacripep. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Still the Surest Way To Soothe Dry Eye Symptoms.

Dry eye disease is a major affliction and the process of treating it has created a 100 billion dollar business (annually). In the U.S., dry eye affects between 5% and 9% of the total population; that number increases to 35% among older women. Dry eye disease can occur due to hormonal imbalances, malfunctioning aqueous tear production or lipid production and general inflammation of the eye. Specific symptoms include redness, swelling, soreness, itching, headache and blurred vision.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is a leading expert researcher and educator of the causes and relief of dry eye, and so she is paying close attention to the development and testing of a new drug. Lacripep is a topical eye drop developed by researchers at the University of Virginia Health System and was cleared for human testing in March 2017.

According to its creators, Lacripep is a topical eye drop with difference. Rather than masking dry eye symptoms, Lacripep aims to eliminate inflammatory triggers. If successful, it will do so by restoring the natural basal tearing mechanism and the health of cells. That’s not all. Lacripep may also restore the nerves on the cornea. These are the nerves that signal the brain to create more tears. Lacripep also may stabilize the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. In dry eye conditions, the tear film dries out from excessive evaporation.

Research specialist Gordon Laurie of the UVA School of Medicine’s Department of Cell Biology, says that “most ophthalmic drugs are washed away right away, but that’s not the case here. Lacripep is still in the tears 24 hours later because it goes into the lipid layer and apparently comes out of the lipid layer slowly to treat the eye.” According to Laurie, the root cause of the disease is a shortage of the tear protein lacritin. Lacripep is a short synthetic fragment of lacritin. If successful, Lacripep would be the first drug to treat that cause of dry eye.

“We think that dry eye disease may be much simpler than people have thought in the past, sort of like insulin and type I diabetes,” Laurie said. “With lacritin deficient in dry eye tears, topical Lacripep is a replacement therapy, which will probably not cure the disease. You would still have to keep treating your eyes, but maybe just once a day.”

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®, awaits the results of the tests with interest. Until then, she continues to urge people suffering from dry eye disease to use Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for relief. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® contains no chemicals and consists of 100 percent pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. The product is applied as a patented micron-size mist that supplements and replenishes the tear film from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. Most eye drops trap moisture but do not replenish it.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is still the dry eye solution of choice. Millions of dry eye sufferers around the world attest to that.

Swollen Eyes On The Rise In Winter Says Sharon Kleyne

Water Advocate and Radio Host Shares Wisdom about Swollen Eyes. Water Life Science® Technology Mists Swollen Eye Symptoms Away.

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®, says that swollen eyes are one of the most common symptoms of winter dry eye.

Kleyne says that swollen eyes can refer to “blepharitis,” which is inflammation of the eyelids, “conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the ocular conjunctiva, the layer of living tissue over the eyes that contain blood vessels, or to “carunculitis, ” which is inflammation of the lacrimal caruncle, the little fleshy spot in the inner corner of the eye. Inflammation of any or all of these, Kleyne teaches, are frequent symptoms of dry eye syndrome, which is far more common in winter than in any other season. Kleyne, an internationally respected advocate of water, research and new water technology, cautions that blepharitis, conjunctivitis and carunculitis can have other causes in addition to dry eye disease. However, even when the ultimate cause of swollen eyes is not dry eye, all three conditions have the potential to create dry eye and induce other dry eye symptoms such as redness, itching, burning, blurring, fatigue and debilitating headache.

Swollen eyes love winter because colder air is not capable of holding as much gasified water vapor, also called humidity, as warmer air. The lower the atmospheric humidity, the greater is the tendency of liquid water in the vicinity to evaporate. This especially includes the water in the eyes. In addition, more time is spent indoors in winter. Cold air that is artificially heated will not acquire additional humidity without a water source such as a humidifier.

Kleyne, also the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, cautions that inflammatory hormones can play a central role in swollen dry eyes. When the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99% water, loses a portion of its water to excessive evaporation, contact with dehydrating airborne irritants, tear and lipid gland malfunction or disease, inflammatory hormones are produced. These hormones cause the tear film to lose more water, which produces even more inflammatory hormones. Blepharitis, Kleyne stresses, is also common and can have many causes. Regardless, the lipid or oil secreting meibomian glands, located within the eyelid, are almost always involved. Lipid glands produce oils that act as a barrier to slow or prevent water evaporation from the eyes.

To relieve dry eye symptoms and soothe swollen eyes, Kleyne suggests supplementing and replenishing lost tear film moisture with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only product on the global market that contains 100 percent pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® provides immediate, painless relief for inflamed eyelids, conjunctivae and carunculae conditions. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied to the eyes as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier that is easy and fun to use. “When your eyes become swollen in winter, or in any season,” says Kleyne, “get immediate relief with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.”

Sharon Kleyne Examines Winter Dry Eye

Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science® Researches Winter Dry Eye. New Water Life Science® Technology Soothes Dry Eye Symptoms.

Dry eye disease is a rampant problem worldwide at any time, yet it seems to be especially active in winter. International water educator and researcher Sharon Kleyne notes that even though dry eye is the number one reason for visits to the eye doctor in the U.S., many (as much as 50%) ignore symptoms and don’t seek treatment. These people are suffering needlessly. Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, wants everybody to become aware of the symptoms of dry eye disease. “I want to see people become more proactive about their health,” says Kleyne.

Winter can be a severe dry eye season because colder air doesn’t hold as much water vapor as warmer air. People spend more time indoors in winter exposing themselves to forced-air heating and cooling, insulated walls and windows, and circulated air that spreads bacteria. Air pollution can be worse in winter as a result of stronger weather inversion layers holding the polluted air closer to the ground. Air pollution is irritating and dehydrating to eyes.

Dry eye disease symptoms include irritation, swelling, throbbing, fatigue, dryness, headache, dizziness, scratchiness and blurred vision. With dry eye, tear production decreases, tear volume is low, evaporation is high, and/or tear osmolarity is elevated. In addition, tears produced in dry eye contain elevated levels of substances (metalloproteases and other proteinaceous compounds) that increase surface inflammation.

Part of the problem for ophthalmologists, Kleyne explains, is that dry eye is extremely common and can have multiple causes and symptoms. The disease is so common that doctors find it difficult to distinguish between “normal” eyes, and “abnormal” eyes that exhibit dry eye disease. Occasional dry eye is normal and experienced by most people at one time or another. Since their symptoms are usually transient and not severe, many do not seek medical therapy or attempt treatment.

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®, loves teaching the details of her show’s sponsor, which she created with colleagues at the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. She enjoys this because she knows that ignoring dry eye disease is playing a dangerous game. Left untreated, Kleyne points out, dry eye disease can lead to blindness.

Kleyne encourages everyone to get and use Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for winter dry eye disease. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. With dry eye, the eye’s tear film, which is 99 percent water, dries out due to evaporation and it needs to be supplemented and replenished with pure water several times a day. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® never burns (like saline solutions) and is applied to the eye in a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the dry eye solution of choice in winter and in any season. Millions of dry eye sufferers around the world agree.

NATURE’S TEARS® EYEMIST® TECHNOLOGY SHARED BY KLEYNE

Dr. William Mathers Shares Details of Misting Eyes. Hand-Held Portable New Water Technology Advances Dry Eye Care.

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®, loves teaching the details of her show’s sponsor, which she created with colleagues at the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. Kleyne’s research has earned respect from scientists, educators, researchers and physicians around the world and she is regarded as the expert on water vapor loss in the atmosphere and the body as a result of dehydration due to excessive evaporation. Practically, she has also done something about it.

Humidifying mist technology is the process of varying the water droplet size and propulsion speed and the aggregate droplet configuration and density, depending on what is being misted (eyes, skin, lacerations, breathing passages) and depending on the intended purpose (humidifying, washing, sterilizing). An understanding of mist-dosing technology at the microscopic level is the basis for all present and future Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® devices that are personal, portable and hand-held. These portable humidifiers apply Trade Secret tissue culture grade pure water to eyes or skin to replenish water vapor lost to evaporation.

The micron-liter, a measure of liquid volume, represents one-millionth of a liter. Micron-liters are used to measure either droplet volume or the water volume contained in a given amount of mist emitted from a humidifier. Eye drops deliver about 20 to 25 micron-liters of fluid to the eye’s tear film. Because this amount is greater than the volume of the tear film, these drops have the disadvantage of flooding the eye, which washes away the tear film and replaces it with the fluid (often saline) that makes up the drops.

With Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s patented micron-size mist, the quantity of Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh water that is administered to the eye surface is less about two times the volume of the normal aqueous layer of the tear film. That is, it is less than 10 micro-liters. Preferably, between 0.5 and 6 micron-liters is administered.

According to Dr. William Mathers, M.D., the water mist approach retains the simplicity of water but overcomes the potential for severe osmotic shock by diluting the tear volume with exquisitely small micro-droplets. When these micro-droplets land on the ocular surface, they pass directly through the outer lipid layer and dilute the water layer without washing away the normal tear constituents. Relief is often immediate! The canister nozzle delivers 1 to 2 micro-liters per square centimeter per second at 14 inches from the face. Since the average exposed ocular surface is 2 cm this results in 2 micro-liters per second to the eye. Therefore, in one to two seconds, the tear volume is diluted sufficiently to restore normal osmolarity.

“I knew from the start that the application with mist would allow for a titration that you couldn’t achieve with a drop,” Dr. Mathers said (Titration refers to the application of medication in extremely small or microscopic doses). “The mist allows you to put 1 micro-liter into the tear film so that you get no osmotic shock. It is a very gentle process and it allows the patient to tolerate pure water with no discomfort.”

These facts, Kleyne concluded, make Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® the dry eye solution of choice. Millions of dry eye sufferers around the world are agreeing with her.

Dry Eyelids Can Cause Dry Eyes Says Sharon Kleyne

Water Life Science® Creator Kleyne Teaches Relief for Dry Eyelids. Water Researcher Sharon Kleyne Describes Dry Eyelid Skin.

Sharon Kleyne’s research in water and new water technology is respected by scientists, researchers, teachers and physicians around the world. Kleyne is widely acknowledged as the world’s foremost authority on evaporation of earth’s atmosphere and body water vapor. She is also an expert on dry eye disease and an often overlooked companion to dry eye disease. Kleyne asks that we also look at dry eyelid skin and dry skin around the eyes.

The discomfort of dry eye, Kleyne teaches, has become commonplace in our warmer, dry and polluted world. The physiological causes of dry eye disease and dry eyelids and skin around the eyes are many. They include improperly functioning lachrymal and meibomium glands, inflammation (such as flu, colds), allergies and hormonal changes. All of these causes create a loss of water due to excessive evaporation to the all-important and highly complex tear film that covers and protects the eye and enables it to transmit light.

When the tear film is over-evaporating, so are the eyelids and the skin around the eyes. Many people who complain of dry eye symptoms also suffer from dry, flaky and sore eyelids. One of the places from which the tear film draws moisture is the eyelid skin. In fact, physicians are finding that if you moisturize the eyelids and the skin around the eyes with pure water, dry eyes will also be moisturized.

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®, knows that the simplest way to alleviate dry eye, eyelid and skin around the eye symptoms and restore tear film moisture is with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. The purity and pH of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is perfect for supplementing and replenishing lost water of the tear film, eyelids and skin around the eyes. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® contains Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh water and no additives or chemicals. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied to the eyelids, eyes and skin around the eyes in a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. The purity and pH of this mist makes it ideal for rapid and beneficial absorption.

Global Water Crisis Grabs Sharon Kleyne’s Attention

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Supports New Water Research & Holistic Practices. Radio Host Kleyne Says Children & Young People Hold Keys to Future Global Health.

You don’t have to be a scientist to know that planet earth faces a water crisis of unprecedented scope. Every day there are signs, reports and stories about millions of people getting sick or dying because they lack adequate fresh water for drinking, cooking and bathing. Animals, plants and soil also suffer.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science®, has spent many years studying and researching the water crisis that threatens life on this planet. As 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®, Kleyne regularly warns people about the crisis and challenges scientists, researchers and teachers to educate the general public about the dangers of dry eye syndrome and dehydration of the earth’s atmosphere and body water vapor.

Kleyne points out that millions of people every year suffer from dry eye symptoms. In extreme cases, these symptoms can result in blindness. Your eye’s tear film, Kleyne teaches, is 99 percent water and it is always evaporating. Because it is, you need to replenish the tear film’s water vapor with pure, fresh water. Kleyne also believes that we must care for the water vapor of earth’s atmosphere by preventing fresh water run-off to the oceans and constructing more reservoirs and dams. “Earth’s water vapor atmosphere is literally the breath of life,” says Kleyne.

Kleyne has always embraced opportunities to teach children and young people about water, and she makes a special effort to reach out to them. In Kleyne’s experience, children are more open-minded and imaginative. “We should be including children and young people in the discussion about ways to provide fresh, pure water to everyone on earth,” says Kleyne. Kleyne also believes that we should be vigorously encouraging young people and their teachers to grow in awareness. We should be helping them and encouraging them to discover new technology solutions for this international water crisis that threatens their future and the future of earth itself.

All human life is connected with and flows from nature. The flow is air, which is moisture and vital to all life. “If you talk about air, you must talk about water,” Kleyne says. “Everyone must learn to breathe as the earth breathes.” Kleyne believes that water science camps in schools would be a positive step. She also thinks that young people should be encouraged to participate in new water research and the development of new technology by being recruited as interns.

For example, Kleyne refers to her research team’s efforts in Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science® research. Their invention of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® provides dry eye relief in the form of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water that is applied to eyes as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. Today, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide. Though this original product is the result of new fresh water technology, it also draws on the wisdom and efficiency of holistic practices such as Qigong, which dates back thousands of years. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the only pure, fresh water alternative technology in the world, and it is exactly this kind of invention that Kleyne sees young people creating in the future. Meanwhile, adults should be stepping up and expanding their water education.

Influenza Can Lead To Dry Eye Says Sharon Kleyne

Sharon Kleyne Encourages Proactive Eye Care Before Flu Season. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Soothes Dry Eye Symptoms.

Fall has arrived and with it comes influenza—the threat of the flu. Respected international researcher and educator Sharon Kleyne is well aware of the flu’s annual appearance and she warns that the eyes are open windows and doors for flu and cold viruses and bacteria. Taking care of one’s eyes, Kleyne believes, can and will help one to avoid illness. Kleyne knows that when you get the flu you are going to have to deal with fever and nausea, yet it is also important to take care of your eyes, too.

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®, teaches that the water in our eyes and skin is the first line of defense against the invasion of disease. That’s why doctors tell sick people to “drink plenty of water.” When a person becomes ill, the body, eyes and skin lose water and become dehydrated. Dehydration symptoms frequently begin at common disease entry points such as the eyes and mouth. Kleyne knows that common eye complaints at the onset of the flu and after, such as itching, burning, redness and watery eyes, are identical to the most common complaints accompanying dry eye disease.

Watery eyes, Kleyne explains, are a standard symptom of dry eye. They occur, in a dry eye patient, as a result of “reflex tearing” as the eyes’ attempt to compensate for the loss of water via evaporation in the basal tear film. It is especially important to keep the eyes’ protective tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, well hydrated. It’s ironic that winter may be the most challenging time of year to maintain a healthy tear film because more time is spent indoors where the air is drier and contains more bacteria.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, also recommends, for convenient and all-natural relief of dry eye symptoms a soothing, all-natural, pH balanced fresh water mist, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Containing Trade Secret tissue culture grade pure water and delivered to the eye as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, hand-held portable humidifier, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements the tear film’s diminished water content, alleviates tear film dehydration and relieves dry eye complaints.
