Aging & Ignorance Are Tough On The Eyes Says Sharon Kleyne

Cataracts Attack the Aging & Ignorant. Sharon Kleyne Declares Education Key to Better Eyesight.

For some things on earth there may be no cure, but ignorance will be vanquished by learning and education every time. Internationally revered water researcher Sharon Kleyne wishes that you would never forget that, especially when it comes to maintaining your eyesight.

“Do you know,” water advocate Sharon Kleyne asked, “that the number of people around the world suffering from visual impairment exceeds the total population of the United States? That’s right, the total population!” Last year, The World Health Organization released figures documenting that 285 million people (more than the entire population of the United States!) are visually impaired. Almost 40 million are blind. “And yet,” said Kleyne, “Eighty percent of those visual impairments can be prevented.” But as Kleyne tirelessly pointed out, it will never happen if people do not become more proactive and take greater responsibility for their ocular health.

For instance, Kleyne would like you to grasp the fact that cataracts occur, especially in people over the age of 40, when protein in the eye’s natural lens (between the iris and the pupil) clumps together and creates a cloudy condition. Not only is it the main cause of blindness in the world, according to Prevent Blindness America (PBA), there are more global cases of cataracts than there are of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration combined. After age 40, cataracts affect more than 22 million Americans each year, and PBA projects that by 2020 more than 30 million Americans will suffer from cataracts. Cataract symptoms can include blurred vision—as if you were looking through a cloudy glass—dull colors, glaring headlights when you drive at night, or sunlight that seems so bright it hurts.

Cataracts are also dangerous to others. Imagine the head-on collisions and side-swiping savagery awaiting the cataract-afflicted who have not given up driving. Think of the man last year who drove his taxi into a crowded Farmer’s Market, or the one that drifted across the median strip and slammed headfirst into a Winnebago.

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® urges everyone to have their eyes examined for cataracts. “Eyes and skin are constantly assaulted,” Kleyne said, “by dehydration and depletion of earth’s water vapor due to pollution and climate change. Dry Eye Disease, allergies, pollution and respiratory conditions lead directly to cataracts and blindness.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is a unique, preventative safeguard against cataracts, dry eye and other eye ailments. Developed by Kleyne and her research center colleagues at the company she founded and directs, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science’s®, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied to the eyes with a personal, portable hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, patented micron size mist for rehydrating your eyes. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and was successfully test-marketed in more than 70,000 outlets.

“You only have two eyes,” Kleyne reminds us, “and it’s your duty to take care of them.”
