Sharon Kleyne Describes The Moisture Of The Eye

Water Researcher Kleyne Offers Dry Eye Education. Sharon Kleyne Talks Healthy Eyes & Good Vision.

At the same time that earth is suffering a water crisis, the human eye is also under attack. According to Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, ongoing global change in temperature, humidity and air pollution is creating a worldwide health crisis: dry eye disease. Kleyne believes that the key to maintaining healthy eyes and good vision will come down to education about the structure and care of the eye’s all-important tear film. Kleyne, an internationally respected researcher, creator of new technology and a renowned educator, offers a lesson here in the defense against dry eye and blindness.

The eye (including the white sclera and clear cornea) is the only exposed part of the body not protected by skin. Instead, it is protected by the tear film, which is 99 percent water. The tear film also lubricates the eyes and is the primary transmitter of light.

Our increasingly dry and polluted global environment is creating a heightened risk of tear film water lost to evaporation. When the tear film loses water, it doesn’t perform its many functions as well and vision can (and often does) become compromised.

The first and most important step in preventing dry eye and tear film moisture loss, according to Kleyne, who is 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®, is to understand how the tear film works. Although only 20 to 30 microns (millionths of a meter) thick, the multi-layered tear film is amazingly complex. Dehydrated and irritated eyes (dry eye) mainly occur as moisture loss in the tear film’s middle (aqueous) layer.

Kleyne describes the tear film layers in this way. The lipid layer is the outermost layer and consists of a thin film of fatty oils (over 100 different fats and oils have been identified) that lubricate the eyelid, help protect the eye from airborne particles (dust, pollen, smoke, bacteria) and slow evaporation of water from the aqueous layer.

The aqueous layer is the middle and by far the thickest tear film layer. It contains the vast majority of the eye’s water. It also contains electrolyte (salt), beneficial proteins, enzymes and bacteria-fighting antibodies. Moisture loss from the aqueous layer can lead to an over-concentration of salt, which results in discomfort (usually burning). Perspiration also contains lipid, salt and water but the salt content is much higher than that of the tear film. That’s why perspiration causes discomfort when it drips into the eyes. Since the clear corneal cells are live but contain no blood vessels, they depend on the aqueous layer’s water for nutrition and oxygen. The water is most oxygenated when there is a steady inflow of clean humidity droplets, passing through the lipid layer, from the surrounding air.

The mucin layer is the bottom layer that glues the tear film to the ocular surface.

Kleyne knows that the best way to supplement and replenish the evaporating water vapor of the eye is to use 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. 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 eyes as 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.

Kleyne also believes that the best eye health comes of being proactive on an individual basis. The more you understand what your eyes consist of and how they work, the happier and healthier you and your eyes will be.

Sharon Kleyne Reveals The Truth about Dry Eye, Water and the Cornea

Corneal dry eye could begin with water loss from the eye’s tear film.

“Ocular dryness (dry eye) can deplete corneal stem cells.”

Ula Jurkunas, MD, Harvard Medical School, July 11, 2011

Sharon Kleyne, water and health advocate, Bio-Logic Aqua Research Founder, and host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water radio talk show. New educational dry eye discovery will motivate the public to become more proactive in taking better care of their eyes – and the importance of the function of water in the tear film. The importance of water in alleviating dry eye symptoms and maintaining corneal health was discussed during two on-air interviews by Sharon Kleyne, with Harvard Corneal Researcher Dr. Ula Jurkunas, a clinician scientist heading corneal research (July 11, 2011) and with Lasik pioneer Dr. Marguerite McDonald, a clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at NYU and refractive eye surgeon (June 1, 2009).

Nearly everyone experiences dry eye and eye dehydration symptoms, including infants. Dry eye caused by dry air and diet accounts for 80% of eye doctor visits in the United States. Dry eye can lead to blindness. Most people in the world do not take the condition of dry eye seriously.

Recent research at Harvard University and elsewhere, now provides a graphic picture of just what happens, physically, when the eye surface, especially the protective “tear film” covering the cornea (the clear part of the eye), begins to lose water, resulting in dry eye and dehydration symptoms.

Doctors Jurkunas and McDonald agreed with Mrs. Kleyne that loss of water in the tear film is the underlying cause of dry eye. According to Dr. Jurkunas, “It is important to keep the cornea clear and hydrated. When the tear film is too dry, the cornea becomes somewhat irritated and opaque.” According to Dr. McDonald, “When the tear film lacks sufficient water, small corneal ulcers can begin.” Chronic dry eye could cause loss of vision.

According to Dr. Jurkunas, “Corneal stem cells originate in the conjunctiva (the fleshy inner corner of the eye) and migrate across the white (sclera) to the corneal epithelium (the membrane covering the cornea).” Ocular dryness can cause stem cell deficiency.

Dr. Jurkunas explains that chronic dry eye, eye infections, allergies, and other conditions, can lead to a permanent impairment in the production of corneal stem cells. This is called “corneal stem cell disorder.”

Dr. McDonald reported that dry eye disease is a health crisis in the United States that can lead to severe eye discomfort, loss of work productivity, stress, fatigue, allergies, impaired vision, and, ultimately, blindness. Sharon Kleyne revealed research has discovered that dry eye and tear film dehydration can be caused by numerous environmental conditions, including dry air (low humidity), polluted air, improper diet, sugar, lack of sleep, climate change, wind, insulated walls and windows, forced air heating and cooling – and most importantly, not drinking enough pure, 100% water.

Both Dr. McDonald and Dr. Jurkunas agreed with Sharon Kleyne’s concerns about the global dry eye crisis and her assertion that “good hydration equals good vision.”

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.
