Sharon Kleyne Describes New Technology Relief For Dry Eye

Radio Host Kleyne Explains Patented Micron-Size Mist. Kleyne’s New Water Technology Defeats Dry Eye Disease.

For decades, water researcher and educator, Sharon Kleyne, has earned respect and accolades from scientists, researchers, physicians and government officials around the world for her seminal work in the study of evaporation of earth’s and the body’s water vapor. She has been a leader in the study of water and health, as well as an expert on diseases such as dry eye disease. Kleyne has also been a pioneer in business as the founder and director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science® in Grants Pass, Oregon.

It was there in her international research center that she and her team discovered the new water technology that has ophthalmologists and optometrists, among others, buzzing. “Dry eye,” Kleyne notes, “is the number one cause of eye doctor visits in the U.S. and is a growing global crisis. “Dry eye symptoms are the primary complaint of 80% of Ophthalmology patients in the United States,” says Kleyne. “As the global dry eye crisis worsens, personal eye humidifiers will one day become as indispensable to daily life as cell phones and toothbrushes. It will constitute a new water lifestyle.”

By teaching, Kleyne aims to clear up confusion and common misconceptions. For example, she explains that tear film water lost to evaporation cannot be replaced simply by splashing water into the eyes. The tap water’s “osmolarity” (a function of mineral content) could cause painful “osmotic shock.” Conjunctival and corneal epithelial cells on the eye’s surface require the tear film’s osmolarity to remain within a narrow range to maintain health and comfort. Osmotic shock can occur when the osmolarity of the tear film, or of any substance applied to the eyes (including water), falls significantly outside that range.

Kleyne discovered that osmotic shock can be virtually eliminated by using an additive-free, pure and natural water and by applying the water as an ultra-fine eye mist. The pure water replaces the lost tear film water and overcomes the potential for osmotic shock by diluting the tear volume with an exquisitely small, patented micron-size mist. Kleyne and her team were able to engineer the diameter of the mist droplets to within a 40-60 micron (millionths of a meter) range. When these micro-droplets land on the ocular surface, they pass directly through the overlying lipid (oil) layer and dilute the underlying water layer without washing away normal tear constituents. The eye mist application canister invented by Mrs. Kleyne delivers 1-2 microliters (millionths of a liter) per square centimeter per second at fourteen inches from the face. Since the average exposed ocular surface area is 2 square centimeters, this results in 2 microliters per second to the eye. “In 1 to 2 seconds,” Kleyne concludes,” the tear volume can be diluted sufficiently to restore normal osmolarity. Kleyne’s eye mist application, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, relieves dry eye by restoring the tear film’s normal surface osmolarity. By restoring the surface to a state of health, according to Kleyne, there should also be a beneficial effect on the lachrymal gland and a down-regulation of the inflammatory effects of dry eye.
