Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Comforts Dry Eye Disease Sufferers

Why are more and more ophthalmologists and physicians talking about drusen in discussions with patients about macular degeneration? It’s because drusen makes up the most common early sign of macular degeneration. Yet, what is drusen?

According to Joshua Dunaief, M.D., Ph.D. of the Scheie Eye Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, drusen are deposits that form and accumulate under the retina. Accumulation of drusen can result in cell death and the loss of clear, straight-ahead vision.

According to Dr. Dunaief, “drusen are the defining feature of macular degeneration. These small yellow or white spots on the retina can be detected by an ophthalmologist during a dilated eye exam or with retinal photography. People with more than a few small drusen are said to have early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Often, the drusen, have no symptoms, but represent a risk for some degree of vision loss in the future.”

Dunaief goes on to explain that drusen is derived from a German word that means “rock” or “geode.” drusens are like tiny pebbles of debris under the retina. “They represent a type of “garbage” disposal problem,” says Dunaief. “Retinal cells dump unwanted material, and immune cells normally clean up most of it. However, if too much is dumped, or it is not properly packaged for disposal, or the immune cells don’t function efficiently, it can pile up. The drusen contain proteins and lipids (naturally occurring molecules that include fats).” Some of the proteins are pro-inflammatory, indicating that the immune system is coating the drusen. One protein in drusen is beta amyloid, which is also found in deposits within the brains of people who have Alzheimer’s disease and may contribute to both diseases. Fortunately, having AMD is not a major risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Dunaief’s research has shown that the risk of future vision loss is related to the number and size of the drusen present behind the retina. People with more drusen, and larger drusen, are at higher risk than those with fewer, smaller drusen. Drusen are categorized as small, intermediate and large. This is important, because patients with about 20 or more intermediate drusen or at least one large “druse” were found to benefit from taking antioxidants and vitamins (lutein, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and copper). Taking these antioxidant vitamins significantly reduces the risk of vision loss.

Sharon 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, also suggests using Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for dry eye relief. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® replenishes and supplements the water your eyes need to feel good and function at peak efficiency.

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.

Eye Mist Technology Of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science®

Sharon Kleyne Shares the Humidifying Mist and How It Really Works. Experts Agree That Hand-Held Portable Technology Revolutionizes Dry Eye Care.

Sharon Kleyne, the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and 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®, has taught people around the world about water vapor loss of the atmosphere and the body as a result of dehydration due to excessive evaporation. In her research center, she has also done something about it.

Humidifying mist technology, developed by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is the technology 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.

Conventional 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 that makes up the drops.

With Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s patented micron-size mist, the quantity of fluid 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, 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. 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 cm2 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 added, make Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® the dry eye solution of choice. Millions of dry eye sufferers around the world are agreeing with her.

Sharon Kleyne Encourages You To Love Your Eyes

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Supplements Dry Eye Medical Misunderstanding. Radio Host Sharon Kleyne Identifies Only Product That Supplements Tear Film.

Sharon Kleyne is acknowledged everywhere as America’s leading water researcher and the international expert on dry eye disease. Recently, on her nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, Kleyne thoroughly examined and took issue with the extravagant claims that other companies are beginning to make about treatments for dry eye disease. As Kleyne knows, dry eye disease afflicts more than 30 million Americans annually and an astonishing 250 million Chinese each year.

On her radio show, Sharon Kleyne noted that an ever-popular celebrity, after going public with her chronic dry eye symptoms, was quickly signed by a prominent pharmaceutical company as spokesperson for a campaign aimed at increasing education about dry eye disease and rolling out a new product to treat it. The campaign, Eyelove, collects personal stories about chronic dry eye disease. The new product is the first in a new drug class known as lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) antagonists.

Sharon Kleyne supports any educational effort to increase awareness about dry eye disease and its symptoms, yet she urgently pointed out the fact that these droplet products—new and old—merely mask symptoms and give only momentary relief to dry eye sufferers. In worst case scenarios, Kleyne said, users can become addicted to drops and solutions and actually make their dry eye conditions even worse. “There is still only one product on the global market,” Kleyne said, “that deals with and relieves the root cause of dry eye disease, which is dehydration of the tear film due to excessive evaporation. That product is Natures Tears® EyeMist®. It is the only product with a worldwide patent to supplement the tear film affected by dry eye.”

Dry eye disease dwarfs all over diseases that ophthalmologists and optometrists diagnose and treat each year, and the numbers continue to climb with aging populations. Symptoms include blurred vision, redness, burning, itching, stinging, a gritty sensation and watery eyes. These symptoms can be brought on by a number of causes including pollution, allergies, post-menopausal changes in women, windy conditions, computer use, reading, television viewing and artificial environments (air conditioning, central heating). Dry eye disease occurs when the tear film lens, which is 99% water, loses moisture due to evaporation. “The most effective way to relieve dry eye symptoms,” Sharon Kleyne insisted, “is to supplement the eyes several times a day with a painless micron mist of trade secret, tissue culture grade water.” This is more effective than eye drops, which only trap moisture but do not replenish it.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, in fact researched and developed new water technology that has given us just that product—Natures Tears® EyeMist®. Kleyne has earned an international reputation as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne said, “we begin a process of evaporation that continues until death. In order to sustain excellent health,” she went on, “one must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis to replenish the evaporating water vapor. Of course, the purer the water is, the better it will be for the person supplementing skin and eyes with it.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron mist. 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. With Natures Tears® EyeMist®, Sharon Kleyne explains, tired or irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water, and that’s exactly what eyes challenged by dry eye symptoms need. With Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, Kleyne is sure that the people leaving their stories at Eyelove would find immediate relief, too. “I have some for each of them whenever they are ready!” Kleyne said.

Sharon Kleyne constantly educates people about the current global water crisis and the health dangers associated with dehydration due to excess evaporation of the earth’s water vapor. In doing so, Kleyne encourages people to experience a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle and visit http://www.biologicaqua.com for more information.
