Over-Evaporation Of Tear Film Plagues Chinese

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Comes to China’s Aid. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Is a Winner in China.

Water evaporation and water in the atmosphere expert Sharon Kleyne wants dry eye sufferers in China to know that real help is on the way. It can’t arrive too soon for the Chinese people. China’s air pollution problems are well documented and though the country is working double-time to clear up the air, millions and millions of citizens are plagued by dry eye symptoms such as itching, burning, swelling, dizziness, headaches and blurred vision. Furthermore, as the population ages, dry eye incidents increase.

A 2014 major systematic review and meta-analysis conducted by The Department of Ophthalmology and the Department of Cardiovascular Ultrasound, both at The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University confirmed that DES (Dry Eye Syndrome) does indeed increase with age. For instance, the Shihpai Eye Study found that 33.7% of people aged 65 in Taiwan were symptomatic. Women were shown to be especially susceptible to DES by a ratio of 64 to 1 (64 women for every man). People with Type 2 diabetes were also more likely to suffer from DES. Other risk factors for DES include alcohol, smoking, allergies, contact lens wear, computer use and ocular and systemic medications. The study also highlighted regional differences. Western China and Northern China had many more cases of DES than Central, Eastern and Southern China. Harkening back to an earlier study which showed that there is a strong link between ultraviolet radiation and DES, the current study suggests that Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau of Western China has high altitudes, long hours of sunlight and strong ultraviolet radiation that contributes to DES.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and 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®, often focuses on this situation and she recently talked on the air about the prevalence of dry eye syndrome and its risk factors in Mainland China. Kleyne pointed to the disturbing conclusion three years ago that 17% of the Chinese population suffers from DES while today the number is closer to 25%. “Dry eye in China is out of control,” Kleyne said, “and so is blindness, which can occur as a result of unchecked dry eye conditions.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is an invaluable asset in the rehabilitation of dry eye sufferers. It is easy to use and lacks side effects because it is pure water without preservatives. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed and distributed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® is about to be released in Mainland China.

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device,” said Kleyne. “The device emits a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “and eye drops can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear film; eye drops do not supplement the tear film or the evaporation of water (moisture) of the eyelids.” Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.”
