Kleyne’s Advice For Dry Eye When You Fly

14 Sep

What To Do about Airline Flights When They Dry Out Your Eyes. 30,000 Feet Is a Difficult Atmosphere for Human Eyes.

It seems that almost everybody complains about flying commercially these days. Delays, long lines and dry air have drained all of the fun out of the flying experience..

Another severe challenge to flying commercially is what happens to your eyes during a flight. You don’t have to be in the plane long to notice that your eyes feel dry and irritated, your nasal passages, too. Perhaps you notice a headache coming on. As the flight drones on, maybe you feel increasingly tired and dry in the mouth and eyes.

Welcome to contemporary air travel! What is happening to you in the confines of that plane is excessive moisture evaporation causing dehydration. When as a baby you spurted out of your mother’s watery womb, you began a process of evaporation that continues until you die. In an airplane, you find yourself in an environment that mercilessly speeds up that process. It doesn’t take much water vapor loss to afflict you. The loss of only two or three nano-liters (billionths of a liter) of moisture from the eye’s tear film can result in eye strain, itching, burning and redness, headache dry eyes and fatigue.

But all is not lost. Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, has some sound advice.

Klyene recommends frequent misting of the eyes with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® that you can carry on board because it helps alleviate dehydration symptoms. Dry eyes become moist, dry and itchy skin becomes fresh and cool, saliva starts flowing; eye make-up regains its luster and headaches often vanish instantly. Contact lenses can often be much more comfortably worn on-board planes by also misting the eyes whenever discomfort is felt. Nature’s Tears EyeMist is Trade Secret tissue culture grade pure water that is applied to the tear film and eye by a portable, personal hand-held humidifier that delivers a patented micron-size mist of pure water.

It feels so good and works so fast and it lasts, too!

Kleyne also recommends that flyers drink as much water as possible before and during flights. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Both are dehydrating and contribute to headache and fatigue.
Exercise by standing or walking up and down the aisles. Yes, airline travel can be a draining experience and can cause jet lag, but if you follow these Kleyne tips and use Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® along the way, you may walk off that plane feeling like you actually flew first-class!
