Watch Out for Eye Dehydration During Summer Heat Wave

19 Jul

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.

A quick and easy method of supplementing lost tear film water and alleviating dry eye complaints during a summer heat wave is to carry Natures Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua Research with you and apply it frequently.

Many ophthalmologists are discovering that when Natures Tears® EyeMist® is combined with the best chemical eye drops or treatments intended to cure dry eye, the treatments may become more effective. Natures Tears EyeMist offers gentle, soothing relief that is compatible with all dry eye applications.

The surface of the eye is 98% water and dry eye is defined as a partial loss of the water content of the eyes’ basal tear film. Although Natures Tears® EyeMist® is only intended for temporarily relief of common dry eye complaints, researchers have demonstrated that the product supplements and improves tear film water content. No dry eye “cure” claims to supplement or replace lost tear film water.

Natures Tears® EyeMist® supplements tear film water without disrupting, flooding or washing away the existing natural tear film structure. Research indicates that supplementing a dry and dehydrated tear film with the trade secret, pH balanced, tissue culture water in Natures Tears® EyeMist®, may be the best approach to calming eye inflammation and reducing production of the inflammatory hormones that frequently accompany dry eye.

The best relief of dry eye complaints is obtained by applying Natures Tears® EyeMist® whenever eye discomfort is experienced or the eyes are at risk for discomfort. Research has shown that the frequent application of Natures Tears® EyeMist® in high risk environmental situations, such as bright sunlight, long distance driving, forced-air heating and cooling, polluted and stagnant air, etc., can help prevent dry eye complaints.

Best Relief for Eye Strain and Tired Eyes

10 Jul

Eye strain is a common complaint also called “tired eyes” or “eye fatigue.” The scientific name is asthenopia. The condition can have numerous causes and the best relief is often  determined by the exact cause.

 

Eye strain complaints:

  • Drowsiness
  • Pain around the eyes
  • Headache
  • Sore neck
  • Blurred vision

 

Eye strain causes:

  • Tightening/overworking of the minute ciliary muscles inside the eye
  • Inflammation caused by tear film moisture evaporation and dry eye

 

Examples of eye strain triggers:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Reading
  • Computer use
  • Tedious activities involving the eyes
  • Driving
  • Incorrect eyeglass prescription or contact lenses intolerance.
  • Irritants such as air pollution, smoke, dust and low humidity/dry air.

 

Best eye strain relief:

  • Look around the room or out the window every hour or so (for computer users for best relief of ciliary muscle fatigue).
  • Don’t forget to blink (staring at a computer can drop your reflexive blink rate from 20 times a minute to five times a minute. This exposes the eye to increased tear film evaporation causing dry eye and inflammation).
  • Room lighting is best when dimmer than the TV screen, with no glare.
  • Wear sunglasses for best eye relief while driving in bright light, when sun is in your eyes. or when it’s hazy out.
  • Apply Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® as often as desired to soothe and humidify timed eyes and increase tear film water content.
  • Get some sleep – or at least rest your eyes.
  • Have your eyes checked regularly. Once a year is best.
  • Drink at least eight glasses of water per day.
