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.
