During a summer heat wave, warns Natures Tears® EyeMist® inventor and Bio-Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne, the eyes are especially vulnerable to dehydration or loss of surface water. The ability to recognize, prevent and treat dehydration of the eyes, sometimes called “summer dry eye,” could prevent much discomfort and possibly save one’s eyesight. .
The surface of the eye at the cornea is 98% water. When the amount of ocular surface water, which is mostly contained in the “basal tear film,” begins to drop, either from evaporation or poor tear production, the results are dehydration and dry eye complaints. When eyes are exposed to high temperatures, low humidity, and intense sunlight, the tear film water protecting the eyes and enabling sight evaporates faster than at other times.
Tear film dehydration and dry eye can cause eye discomfort, water eyes, dry eyes, itching eyes, burning eyes, fatigue, headaches, blurred vision and many other symptoms. Too little tear film water, among other things, stimulates the production of inflammatory hormones in the tear film, causing inflammation and discomfort.
Summer is also allergy season, with dramatic increases in airborne pollen. When the eyes’ natural defenses against allergies and pollen are diminished due to insufficient tear film water and the presence of inflammatory hormones, the allergic reaction to pollen will be greater.
Dry eye and dehydration caused by a summer heat wave and intense sunlight can be minimized or avoided by drinking eight glasses of water per day in addition to other fluids, wearing sunglasses, taking frequent cool showers and baths, avoiding direct sunlight, keeping your home humidified, and replacing water and salt when you become overheated.
