Dr. Paden Says Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Best For Dry Eye

3 Oct

Dr. Paden Shares Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Findings. Dry Eye No Match for Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Says Sharon Kleyne.

Whenever a breakthrough product appears in the marketplace, you can be sure that it has been subjected to countless tests by experts to ensure its quality. When internationally respected water researcher, Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® discovered Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, she guided the product through round after round of testing. Dr. Philip Y. Paden, M.D., conducted a study of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® that extended into several years. At the end, Dr. Paden arrived at some significant conclusions.

Paden explained that he had given a sample of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to 10 to 15 patients a day for nine years. The patients had come to his ophthalmology office with complaints of dry, burning or irritated eyes and/or blurring or tearing while reading or using computers. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® was given out along with a sample of artificial tear drops from various manufacturers. Paden was so impressed by the results that he became an enthusiastic investor in, and Medical Director of, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®.

“To understand my patients’ feedback,” Paden continued, “one must realize that when addressing the very common complaints of burning, blurring, tearing, and irritated eyes, we are primarily treating subjective patient complaints and not objective ocular surface disease. These complaints are often the only reason that the patient called for an appointment. All patients were given a sample of artificial tear drops with their mist sample and many had tried one of more conventional products in the past, so much of the feedback was in comparison to the myriad of other products on the market. The most remarkable result of this informal sampling survey was patient enthusiasm. Feedback on all other drop, ointment, eyewash and nutritional supplement products for dry eye has always been lukewarm at best: ‘Better than nothing,’ ‘helps for a little while,’ or ‘doesn’t help.’ Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® inspired such comments as, ‘I love that stuff’ or ‘it’s better than all the other products’.”

Paden elaborated on his patients’ enthusiasm, pointing to the absence of burning, stinging, and blurring. All chemically compounded artificial tears cause these problems in certain patients due to the thickening polymers and chemical nature of these products. Because Natures Tears® EyeMist® is not a compounded product and contains only water, water pure enough to serve as a superior base for tissue culture media, this product cannot and does not cause burning, stinging, and blurring.

“Prior to the introduction of this product,” Paden said, “I never had an enthusiastic response to any dry eye product. Ophthalmologists and optometrists had been hoping for a better product because these unhappy patients are a several-times-a-day reality in our practices. Besides patient enthusiasm for the relief of symptoms offered by the mist, convenience of administration must be considered. One cannot safely instill artificial tear drops while driving on a busy freeway but misting in this situation is easy and not dangerous. None of the drops or ointment products offers the possibility of frequent, convenient dosing, and frequent dosing is the key to relief in many patients.”

Dr. Paden noted that Nature’s Tears EyeMist was offered to patients in addition to conventional products, not as a sole alternative. Many patients ultimately used both drops and mist in a way that maximized their relief. The polymer or gum component in drops results in a longer duration of relief and the mist is quick, easy and effective between drops. “I have found,” Paden said, “that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is an important complement to, and not a replacement for, other products on the market.”

Kleyne, also the 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®, praised Dr. Paden’s research and his dedication to improving dry eye health for everyone.

“No other product generates so much patient enthusiasm and no other product is as frequently described as “the most effective product available,” Paden concluded.

Sharon Kleyne Describes New Technology Relief For Dry Eye

29 Sep

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.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Soothes Dry Eye Eyelids Too

15 Sep

Power of Water Relieves Dry Eye Symptoms. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Comforts Eyelids with Pure Water.

Dry eye disease is a growing health problem in a world that is warmer, drier and more polluted than ever before. Documented cases of dry eye disease continue to soar around the globe, especially among people 55 years of age and older and among children growing up in polluted urban centers. Dry eye’s symptoms—itching, redness, blurred vision, swelling, soreness—cause pain, anxiety, anger and frustration. These emotions and your subsequent reactions can affect your behavior at home. They can color your relationships with friends and they may create problems for you and others at work. On the job, dry eye disease damages your performance and leads to missed days due to illness. If the symptoms of dry eye disease continue unchecked, they can even lead to blindness, which is also a growing ocular health issue.

The physiological causes of dry eye include improperly functioning lachrymal and meibomium glands, inflammation and hormones influencing the nervous system. The result is loss of water to the all-important and highly complex tear film that covers and protects the eye and enables it to transmit light. The simplest way to alleviate dry eye symptoms and restore tear film moisture is with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. The purity and pH of the pure-water mist (100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water), makes Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® ideal for rapid and beneficial absorption.

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device,” Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science® explained. “The portable humidifier 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, which is naturally 99 percent water.”

With Natures Tears® EyeMist®, tired and irritated eyes and eyelids are supplemented with pure water. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief, but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse. Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear film; they do not supplement the tear film or the moisture (the tears) around it. They also leave the eyelids unnourished and unprotected.

Doctors and researchers have discovered that dry eye is often accompanied by dry eyelid skin and dry skin around the eyes. If eyes are not getting enough moisture, it’s likely that the skin isn’t, either. One of the places from which the tear film draws moisture is the eyelid skin. Many people who complain of dry eye symptoms also have dry, flaky and sore eyelids. In addition to moisturizing the eye’s tear film, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® also beneficially moisturizes any skin with which it comes into contact.

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!

Seniors Seek Help For Dry Eye Condition

6 Sep

Sharon Kleyne Says We’re Responsible for Seniors’ Eye Health. National Senior Citizens Day a Good Time To Remember Vision Concerns.

National Senior Citizens Day visited us again a couple of days ago and once more we heard from coast to coast millions of aging voices asking for help with persistent, painful dry eye symptoms that are especially intense among our elders worldwide.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and the creator of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, knows that millions of people around the world suffer from Dry Eye Disease, yet no demographic suffers as much as people 65 years-and-older. Senior citizens are especially vulnerable and are much more likely to experience eye problems such as mild eye strain, severe pain, blurred vision, inflamed eyes, dizziness, headaches, glaucoma, cataracts and blindness. Dry Eye Disease plays a serious role in all of these conditions as the water vapor covering the tear film of the eye, which is 99 percent water, evaporates due to several factors such as allergies, pollution and artificial environments.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the result of advanced research by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, the company Kleyne founded to study evaporation of earth’s water vapor due to contamination of the atmosphere by pollution, global temperature change and artificial environments. Kleyne’s research and the technological innovations of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Research Center have created a new water lifestyle that restores and recycles water vapor to the eye and is becoming as common globally as brushing one’s teeth.

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® replaces the eye’s water vapor lost to evaporation with a patented micron-mist that is applied with a patented hand-held, personal humidifier. The Trade Secret tissue culture grade water is painless and has no side effects. It is fun to use for people of any age, and it can bring special relief to senior citizens. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the first product of its kind to gain access into the medical field after test marketing in 70,000 drugstores and retail stores.

Kleyne, who also hosts of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Warming and Your Health radio program, wished senior citizens everywhere happiness and eye health on their national day and encouraged them to seek relief from dry eye disease with the widely researched and scientifically tested Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. “Your eyes are precious,” Kleyne said. “Be sure to mist them several times a day with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.”

Sharon Kleyne Says Beware Summer Eye Strain & Dry Eye Stress

24 Jul

Sharon Kleyne Tells Readers ‘Don’t Forget To Drink Enough Water’. Rest Is Essential for Reducing Stress and Rejuvenating Tired Eyes.

Summer is a time of relaxation and extra family connections, of barbecues and vacations, but it can also be a time of great stress and eye problems. Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica, has been teaching listeners for years that eye strain and dry eye disease symptoms cause stress and anxiety and too often result in even more serious vision problems. For example, according to Kleyne, too much stress can cause the tear film in the eyes to lose water via accelerated evaporation and become dehydrated.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, says that the situation has never been so bad. “Direct sunlight and the heat are punishing eyes,” says Kleyne, “and nowadays so many people spend hours and hours texting, watching television, playing video games and working on computers. You see people everywhere with red, swollen and bleary eyes,” says Kleyne. “You can see the stress and anxiety literally etched on their faces.”

Kleyne and her research center specializing in supplementing the evaporation of body water and earth’s water vapor developed and patented its signature product, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Consisting of Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh water with no additives and applied to the eyes as a patented fine mist from a hand-held, portable personal humidifier, the product painlessly and instantly soothes the eye and eye film. That tear film, by the way, is naturally 99% water.

The eye/stress connection, according to Kleyne, has to do with the fact that the eyes are very close to the brain and the two are “hard-wired” together. Any trauma to the brain will affect the eyes and vice-versa. Many emotions affect the eyes, including sadness, joy, depression and stress. Kleyne’s research has discovered that prisoners and people who are emotionally unstable tend to have more vision problems than those who are more stress-free.

Dry eye complaints tend to be very bad in summer because of the higher heat and more time spent exposed to air conditioning. Indoor air tends to have lower water vapor content. The loss of tear film moisture to evaporation triggers numerous hormonal responses in the eyes, including an inflammatory reaction and a threat alert.

To avoid stress and irritation issues, Kleyne suggests wearing good sunglasses when outside. She also recommends setting a limit to the number of hours you work on computer or text or watch TV. Kleyne believes that by being proactive about your eye health, you can greatly reduce your stress.

To avoid dry eyes, eye strain and associated stress, Kleyne also recommends drinking at least eight to ten full glasses of water each day, in addition to all other fluid intake. If you begin to feel stress, or your eyes feel uncomfortable, a soothing, all-natural, pH balanced fresh water mist such as Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® will quickly supplement the tear film’s water content and alleviate tear film dehydration and dry eye complaints.

China Welcomes Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®

13 Jul

Bio-Logic Aqua Research® Water Life Science® Brings Signature Product to China. Sharon Kleyne Attacks Dry Eye in China.

At long last, the premiere product that supplements the eye’s tear film with pure water has been released in China. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the signature product developed by Sharon Kleyne and the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua Research® Water Life Science®, recently made its debut throughout China, which Kleyne calls “the ideal market for Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.”

China, home of the world’s largest population (it is four times greater than the population of the U.S.) and the second-largest economy, also features a population with abundant disposable income and a host of eye problems. Chief among these is dry eye disease. 17 percent (237 million people) of the Chinese population suffers from dry eye disease. Chinese medical professionals believe that nearly the entire population experiences dry eye symptoms occasionally and are often exposed to environments that are at high risk for dry eye disease. “The tear film of the eye is 99 percent water,” said Kleyne. “When the eye water evaporates, dry eye disease attacks with symptoms that include redness, itching, swelling, blurred vision and headaches, to name a few.” If the dry eye condition goes unchecked long enough, even blindness can occur. “It’s been projected,” said Kleyne, “that in a few years 60 million Chinese will go blind.”

The best solution for eye health is to supplement them several times a day with pure water devoid of additives or chemicals. Saline solutions and conventional eye drops can provide some relief, but they can also make the situation worse. They only trap moisture on the eye; they do not replenish it. Kleyne is, of course, justifiably proud of her signature eye mist, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, which she and her colleagues developed. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the only product on the market that is one hundred percent pure water with no chemicals or additives. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water that is applied to the eyes by a portable, personal hand held humidifier delivering a patented micron mist. “Just as you need to be drinking your 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, you must mist your eyes several times a day with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®,” said 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®.

Now that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® has arrived in China, Kleyne is optimistic that Chinese citizens will enthusiastically accept her product just as the director of Golden Dragon TV, Rose Hong has done. Hong, a native of China and citizen of the U.S., discovered Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® years ago and swears by its effectiveness. Hong also appreciates that one can travel so easily with it.
