Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Seeks Help for Chinese Dry Eye. Sharon Kleyne Says Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® the Perfect Dry Eye Solution.
China’s position as a leader on the world stage is affirmed several times a day, but not all of the notoriety is good news. For instance, Dry eye expert Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, announced on air the other day that sales of protective face masks in China now exceed 1 billion units. That is a lot of face masks! Ranging in price from a couple of dollars to over fifty dollars, purchase of these masks contribute mightily to making dry eye a billion dollar annual business around the world.
Of course, the Chinese are well aware of their problems with a polluted atmosphere. And though the face masks offer marginal protection at best, most citizens argue that a little protection is better than nothing. Still, millions suffer excessive evaporation—loss of body water vapor—and millions more battle dry eye disease. 600 million Chinese were afflicted with dry eye in 2015 and the numbers have continued to climb to the present day. Blindness, also out of control in China, can be the last result of a dry eye condition.
Dry eye disease symptoms include itching, blurring, burning, irritation, eyestrain, headache, and/or a ‘grainy’ sensation. The ultimate cause of dry eye disease is over-concentration of salt (electrolyte) due to moisture (water) loss in the tear film’s aqueous layer. When moisture is depleted, electrolyte and other substances become over-concentrated and discomfort results.
But more help is on the way. A new product, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® is on its way to China. It is currently the only dry eye solution on the global market that supplements dry eye with pure water and nothing else.
According to Kleyne, 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-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water, and that’s what eyes challenged by dry eye symptoms need. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.
