Water Researcher Kleyne Shares Solution For Blurred Vision

28 Sep

Blurred Vision Is Dry Eye Symptom Says Kleyne. Dry Eye Blurred Vision Is Dangerous Says Kleyne.

The season is changing as the heat of summer finally relents and cooler temperatures prevail. But in the process more and more people are complaining about blurred vision. Sharon Kleyne, internationally respected for her groundbreaking water research and discovery of new water technologies, wants to educate you as to the reason for this increase in the incidents of blurred vision.

“To begin,” says Klyene, founder and director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science®, “most of these cases are temporary and most are associated with dry eye disease. Blurred vision is a common symptom of dry eye.” Kleyne went on to explain that dry eye is more likely to occur in winter. Why is that? It’s because dry eye is more prevalent when cooler air can’t hold as much water vapor, the breath of life – also called “humidity” – as warmer air. The lower the humidity of the surrounding atmosphere, the greater will be the tendency of the liquid water in the vicinity to evaporate. This increased evaporation, says Kleyne, applies equally to lakes, puddles, wet sidewalks and the moist tear film covering the eyes. “When the tear film, which is 99% water, loses a portion of its water evaporation, or loses water for any reason,” Kleyne says, ”a condition develops called dry eye disease occurs.”

Blurred vision, according to Kleyne, occurs when the tear glands of the eyes attempt to compensate for the loss of tear film water to excess evaporation by flooding the eyes with reflex tears. As a result, the eyes become temporarily watery and this impairs light refraction. Dry eye may also cause dry spots on the cornea, the clear part of the eye. Since water is critical to light refraction, images transmitted through a corneal dry spot tend to be distorted and unclear. Closing the eyes briefly, or taking a short nap, will often clear up the problem.

According to 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®, blurred vision as a dry eye symptom is most likely to occur late in the day, in the presence of dehydrating factors such as smoke and pollution, or during an engrossing activity such as working at a computer. Other dry eye symptoms include itching and burning eyes, fatigue and headaches. Incidences of dry eye problems also increase when it is colder because more time is spent indoors, where insulated walls and windows and forced-air heating also dehydrate the tear film.

Kleyne wants everyone to know that blurred vision can be dangerous. She points out that eye injuries and eye irritation account for 85% of workplace injuries. The number one workplace complaint associated with eyes is blurred vision. Blurred vision can affect productivity and disorient workers. Yet, blurred vision is most commonly dangerous when driving at night. Lights can appear as streaks, making it more difficult to identify the brake lights on a car slowing down or the turn signal of a car changing lanes. Light streaks may also make it more difficult to see lane stripes and traffic signs.

However, there is a solution that Kleyne wants everyone to know about. Kleyne’s research center has developed a new technology, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, which is unique on the global market. The product is specifically designed to replace and supplement lost tear film moisture with Trade Secret tissue culture grade 100 percent natural, pure water. This pH balanced fresh water is delivered to the eye as a patented micron-size mist from a personal hand-held portable humidifier that is fun and easy to use. “Conventional eye drops trap moisture but do not replenish it,” says Kleyne. That’s why everyone should keep a supply of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on hand for those occasions when blurred vision and other dry eye symptoms attack.


What are your views on blurred vision and dry eye disease? Are you aware of the problem of dehydration? Have you ever tried Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® or known someone who has done so to hydrate the eyes? What’s the verdict?

Best Dry Eye Cures Are More Effective with Natures Tears® EyeMist®

18 Jul

Because the condition known as “dry eye” can have multiple causes, finding the best cure, or even any cure, has long challenged ophthalmologists and dry eye researchers. For some people with a chronic form of dry eye, there is no cure. Whatever the cause of dry eye, Natures Tears® EyeMist®, from Bio-Logic Aqua Research, offers the best and most soothing relief for complaints such as eye discomfort, blurry vision, red eyes and headache. Soothing temporary relief is often obtained even for individuals whose dry eye is considered incurable.


Many ophthalmologists are discovering that when Natures Tears® EyeMist® is combined with the best chemical eye drops or treatments intended to cure dry eye, the treatments may become more effective. Natures Tears EyeMist offers gentle, soothing relief that is compatible with all dry eye applications.

The surface of the eye is 98% water and dry eye is defined as a partial loss of the water content of the eyes’ basal tear film. Although Natures Tears® EyeMist® is only intended for temporarily relief of common dry eye complaints, researchers have demonstrated that the product supplements and improves tear film water content. No dry eye “cure” claims to supplement or replace lost tear film water.

Natures Tears® EyeMist® supplements tear film water without disrupting, flooding or washing away the existing natural tear film structure. Research indicates that supplementing a dry and dehydrated tear film with the trade secret, pH balanced, tissue culture water in Natures Tears® EyeMist®, may be the best approach to calming eye inflammation and reducing production of the inflammatory hormones that frequently accompany dry eye.

The best relief of dry eye complaints is obtained by applying Natures Tears® EyeMist® whenever eye discomfort is experienced or the eyes are at risk for discomfort. Research has shown that the frequent application of Natures Tears® EyeMist® in high risk environmental situations, such as bright sunlight, long distance driving, forced-air heating and cooling, polluted and stagnant air, etc., can help prevent dry eye complaints.

Symptoms and Relief of Allergy Eye

28 Jul

An “allergy” may be defined as “an adverse immunological reaction to a substance that normally does not produce such a reaction.” Adverse reactions to things like pollen, mold spores and pet dander (called “allergens”), are allergies because most people are not bothered by them. An adverse reaction to cigarette smoke or bee stings is not technically an allergy because nearly everybody reacts to them.

The eye’s first line of defense against allergies and other irritants is the complex and extremely thin tear film that covers the eyes’ exposed surface. The tear film is 99% water. The remainder of the tear film consists of salt, proteins, antibodies, lipids, etc.

Factors such as air pollution, dry air, heat, wind, forced air heating and cooling and even stress can cause your tear film to lose water. If you happen to be sensitive to allergens such as pollen, the reaction will be more severe if your tear film is too dry and not functioning at full capacity. It is common knowledge among specialists that allergy eye (especially pollen allergies) is worse in hot, dry weather and better in cool, humid weather when it is easier to maintain the tear film’s natural moisture balance.

Standard eye drops may be ineffective against allergy eye because the large drops can wash away the natural tear film, including the evaporation-slowing lipid layer. Also, chemicals in these products can create their own adverse or allergic reactions.

Allergy Eye and Dry Eye Symptoms.

Itching, redness, blurred vision, burning, eyelid swelling or redness, excessive tearing, grainy feeling, eye strain, fatigue, heavy eyelids,  and light sensitivity are some allergy eye and dry eye symptoms.

Reducing allergens/minimizing symptoms.

  • Stay indoors when the pollen count is at its peak, especially in mid-morning and early evening.
  • Keep windows closed and use air-conditioning during peak allergy seasons.
  • Wear glasses or sunglasses outdoors during peak seasons.
  • Allergy-proof your home; put dust-mite-proof covers on bedding and pillows; clean surfaces with a damp mop, rag, or shampooer rather than dry sweeping or dusting.
  • Keep pets outdoors as much as possible if you have pet allergies.
  • Reduce molds by keeping indoor humidity moderate. Shoot for 40% to 50% relative humidity at 70 degrees.
  • Remove contact lenses as soon as symptoms appear.

Standard remedies.

  • Cold compresses on the eyes.
  • Oral antihistamines (may cause drowsiness).
  • Eye drops and redness relievers.
  • See your doctor about mast cell stabilizers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and immunotherapy.

Maintaining tear film health.

  • Put bowls of water in your house, especially when heater or air conditioner is on.
  • Take frequent long, luxuriant baths and/or showers.
  • Let as much fresh air into the house as you can, especially the bathroom.
  • Apply a pure-water mist before and after facial cleansing and any time eyes or face feel dry and/or uncomfortable.

What is the Eyelid?

17 Feb

New Discoveries about Eyelids, Blink Rate, Dry Eye and Computers

Dry eye, in the United States and worldwide, is becoming a crisis. Eighty-percent of eye doctor patients complain of dry eye symptoms such as itching, burning, blurred vision, red eyes, headache and fatigue. The importance of the eyelid in dry eye has only recently been recognized. Researchers are discovering that if the tear film is dry, the eyelids will also be dry. This is especially true in chronic dry eye and in people who live in areas of extreme dry air or air pollution, or who spend a lot of time indoors.

The eyelid is critical in two areas of dry eye research:

1. Blink rate: Dry eye and tear film dehydration can result from a low rate of eyelid blinking. It may also result from an excessively high blink rate.

2. Eyelid health: The majority of dry eye patients have unhealthy and dry eyelids (blepharitis).
