Over-Evaporation Of Tear Film Plagues Chinese

5 Jun

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Comes to China’s Aid. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Is a Winner in China.

Water evaporation and water in the atmosphere expert Sharon Kleyne wants dry eye sufferers in China to know that real help is on the way. It can’t arrive too soon for the Chinese people. China’s air pollution problems are well documented and though the country is working double-time to clear up the air, millions and millions of citizens are plagued by dry eye symptoms such as itching, burning, swelling, dizziness, headaches and blurred vision. Furthermore, as the population ages, dry eye incidents increase.

A 2014 major systematic review and meta-analysis conducted by The Department of Ophthalmology and the Department of Cardiovascular Ultrasound, both at The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University confirmed that DES (Dry Eye Syndrome) does indeed increase with age. For instance, the Shihpai Eye Study found that 33.7% of people aged 65 in Taiwan were symptomatic. Women were shown to be especially susceptible to DES by a ratio of 64 to 1 (64 women for every man). People with Type 2 diabetes were also more likely to suffer from DES. Other risk factors for DES include alcohol, smoking, allergies, contact lens wear, computer use and ocular and systemic medications. The study also highlighted regional differences. Western China and Northern China had many more cases of DES than Central, Eastern and Southern China. Harkening back to an earlier study which showed that there is a strong link between ultraviolet radiation and DES, the current study suggests that Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau of Western China has high altitudes, long hours of sunlight and strong ultraviolet radiation that contributes to DES.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and 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®, often focuses on this situation and she recently talked on the air about the prevalence of dry eye syndrome and its risk factors in Mainland China. Kleyne pointed to the disturbing conclusion three years ago that 17% of the Chinese population suffers from DES while today the number is closer to 25%. “Dry eye in China is out of control,” Kleyne said, “and so is blindness, which can occur as a result of unchecked dry eye conditions.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is an invaluable asset in the rehabilitation of dry eye sufferers. It is easy to use and lacks side effects because it is pure water without preservatives. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed and distributed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® is about to be released in Mainland China.

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device,” said Kleyne. “The device 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. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “and eye drops can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear film; eye drops do not supplement the tear film or the evaporation of water (moisture) of the eyelids.” Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.”

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Investigates Dry Eye

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Gets Dry Eye Symptoms on the Run. Eye Drops No Good, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Good for Dry Eye Relief.

Dry eye disease is a persistent and sometimes deadly foe of ocular health. Its symptoms—itching, redness, blurred vision, swelling, soreness—cause pain, anxiety, anger and frustration affecting your behavior at home, with friends and at work. At work, dry eye disease damages your performance and can lead to missed days. If unchecked, dry eye symptoms can also lead to blindness. Yes, it’s that serious.

That’s why water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and 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®, asked a member of her research center to describe dry eye disease, evaporation and the steps people can take to find immediate, long-term and permanent relief.

John D. Ng, MD, MS, FACS, Chief—Ocular Plastics, Orbital and Reconstructive Surgery and a professor at Oregon Health & Science University, reveals that “dry eye symptoms due to evaporative loss of the water component of tears are exacerbated by secondary concentration of electrolytes in addition to the mucus ad oil component of the tear film that remain on the ocular surface.” Several causes of this condition include smoke, allergies, staring at computer screens or TVs too long, artificial environments (central air, heat), pollution, lack of sleep and other ailments such as cold and flu. Dr. Ng asserts that “moisturizing and reestablishing proper water balance is essential to restoring ocular surface health.”

Dr. Ng, working with thousands of patients suffering from dry eye and ocular surface disease, is certain that he’s found the best solution available in today’s global market. “Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®,” says Ng, “is the go-to pure water supplement in the rehabilitation of patients. I have been recommending Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for over 17 years and can attest to its benefit, its ease of use and lack of side effects as it is pure water without preservatives.”

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device,” Kleyne adds, emitting 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®,” Kleyne says, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “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.”

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements both,” adds Dr. Ng, “and I will continue to recommend it to my patients, family, friends and acquaintances. It’s the dry eye solution that really is a solution; it is not a stop-gap measure providing only temporary relief.”

Saline not the answer for dry eye says Dr. Ng

John Ng, MD, MS, FACS Discusses Studies of Tears. Tear Film Pure Water Supplementation Needed for Dry Eye Relief.

John D. Ng, MD, MS, FACS, a respected member of the research center team at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, believes people need to better understand what is going on with their eye health. Global blindness is out of control and the symptoms of dry eye disease plague billions of people worldwide. Speaking to Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and 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®, Dr. Ng was surprised to discover that so many people do not understand the importance of water in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Sharon Kleyne, a global expert on evaporation, recommends a recent study that proposes that researchers learn more about natural tears to better understand how to treat eyes that do not tear (eyes that suffer from dry eye). Such is the conclusion of the study conducted at the University of Western Sydney. Associate Professor M. Millar, director of the study, believes that researchers need to approach dry eyes “in a new, more constructive manner”. Kleyne, who has conducted groundbreaking research on dehydration of the body’s water vapor due to excessive evaporation for more than two decades, sees the need for more research “because dry eye disease is on the rise around the world. Everyone suffers dry eyes on occasion,” says Kleyne, “but billions of people are chronically afflicted with dry eye symptoms that often result in blindness.”

Dr. Ng says studies show that sodium electrolyte content of tears range from 106/138 mmol/1. Normal saline contains 154 mmol/1 for both sodium and chloride. As a result, on average, normal saline is hyperonic compared to the normal aqueous component of tears.

“This is why natural tears,” Kleyne asserts, “are essential to our wellness, to our health. Natural tears protect our eyes by lubricating them. They protect the cornea as well as the surrounding tissues.” Kleyne asks people to understand that tears are not just about crying. Yes, tears can be plentiful when we feel sad or some other overpowering emotion takes hold of us, but natural tears moisten our eyes and keep them lubricated. Natural tears make it possible for our eyes to focus without obstructions. Simply put, natural tears help us to see clearly. “If we didn’t have natural tears,” says Kleyne, “we’d be looking at the world through a permanent haze.”

We know now that the key to understanding dry eyes is to know how air interacts with the liquid tear in the eye and makes tears evaporate. Earlier, we believed that tears contained proteins that were found only in the teardrop. But new research discovered that proteins also exist at the surface and around the tear. These outer proteins, not those within the tear, determine how quickly tears will evaporate and cause dry eyes.

Sharon Kleyne shares that dry eye disease symptoms include blurred vision, redness, burning, itching, stinging, a gritty sensation and watery eyes. These symptoms are triggered by a number of causes including pollution, allergies, post-menopausal changes, windy conditions, computer use, reading, television viewing and artificial environments (air conditioning, central heating). Kleyne describes how she has also developed the only product on the world market that comes close to the ‘cure’ that Professor Millar envisions.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, Sharon Kleyne points out, is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting 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 99 percent water. Kleyne also refers to the fact that it is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide. The product was successfully test-marketed in more than 70,000 outlets. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne says, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what eyes challenged by dry eye symptoms need. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief,” Ng adds, “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 lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

What Does ‘Dry Eye’ Mean To You?

Sharon Kleyne Urges Awareness: Dry Eye Means Water Loss. Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Teaches Dry Eye Equals Water Loss.

Sharon 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®, knows more about water vapor loss due to evaporation and dry eye disease than anyone else on planet earth. Yet, she wants you to know this fact, too: they are the same thing! Water vapor loss is just that—loss of water; dry eye disease also means loss of water.

Put another way, consider that you cannot suffer from dry eye symptoms unless the water vapor of your eye’s tear film has lost water. It’s true. Your eyes are literally drying up because your tear film, which is naturally 99% water, is losing its water due to evaporation.

For two decades, Sharon Kleyne has been teaching that earth began surrounded by a band of life-giving water vapor. Gradually, the vapor changed and began to fall to earth as rain. On earth it created oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, ponds and the aquifer—nature’s original great reservoirs. In the process, myriad forms of life began, including human beings. All humans, in fact, begin their existence in a chamber of mother-water—your mother’s womb. Yet the moment you are born, you begin a lifelong process of evaporation unto death. The human body and human eyes must be supplemented on a regular basis to maintain optimum health. If you do not supplement your evaporating body water vapor and your evaporating eye water, you will literally dry up like a mummy and die.

Kleyne also wants you to know that the smartest way to supplement your dry eyes is to use the only product of its kind on the global market today. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is currently the only product that supplements dry eye with a Trade Secret® mist of pure water and nothing else. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret® tissue culture grade water in a patented micron-size mist. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne says, “you can supplement your tired and irritated dry eyes as often as you wish. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne says, “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. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements both. Kleyne encourages everyone to get a better understanding of what’s really going on in the fight against dry eye disease. Water is the only priority we ned to remember. Water and only pure, Trade Secret® water knocks out dry eye disease for good.

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Begins China Dry Eye Campaign

1 May

China Welcomes Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® To Soothe Dry Eye Disease. Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Has Unique Answer for Dry Eye in China.

Dry eye disease affects 17% of the Chinese population in a country of approximately 1.5 billion people. Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica, announced on the air the imminent arrival in China of a unique product that turns back the onslaught of dry eye disease.

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne’s research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® has developed the only product on the global market, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, that solves the dry eye dilemma. Kleyne said that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a globally patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “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 lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

Sharon Kleyne, who has conducted groundbreaking research on dehydration of the body’s water vapor due to excessive evaporation for more than two decades, sees the need for more research because dry eye disease is on the rise around the world. “No one is immune from dry eyes on occasion,” said Kleyne, “but billions of people are chronically afflicted with dry eye symptoms that can result in blindness. “Natural tears in China,” Kleyne said, “are the right ticket to getting rid of dry eye symptoms,” said Kleyne. “Natural tears lubricate our eyes. They protect the cornea and the surrounding tissues. These facts make Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® the perfect fit for China.”

Sharon Kleyne added background material about this disorder of the tear film. It is a result, she explained, of deficient tear production or excessive evaporation. This condition can lead to damage to the ocular system and even blindness. Well known symptoms include pain, discomfort, headaches, redness, swelling and diminishing vision. It is not surprising that depression and anxiety are also common in people suffering from dry eye disease.

“Approximately 38,3000,000 Chinese are going to suffer from dry eye disease in 2017,” said Kleyne, “and we’re going to do something about it to help those suffering with these symptoms.”

Chinese Holistic Dry Eye Care Invigorated By Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®

27 Apr

Sharon Kleyne Urges Water and Atmosphere Education. Water Advocate Kleyne Acknowledges Water Priority of Ancient Chinese Holistic Care.

To celebrate her 11th year on the air as 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®, Sharon Kleyne treated listeners to some little known facts about the traditional Chinese holistic approach to dry eye disease.

“Did you know,” Kleyne asked, “that in traditional Chinese holistic care, water has always been the top priority? Without the water in the atmosphere,” she continued, “there can be no breath and no life.” That is why Kleyne believes that the Chinese suffering from dry eye disease can greatly benefit from the only product of its kind on the global market today. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is currently the only product that supplements dry eye with a mist of pure water and nothing else.

Kleyne explained that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting 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®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “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 lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

“There are several herbal treatments in Chinese holistic care for dry eyes,” said Kleyne andproceeded to share some of them. Huai Hua Mi (Pagoda Tree Flower) treats dizziness, blurred vision and red eyes as a result of liver heat; Qing Xiang Zi (Celosia Seeds) helps painful red, swollen eyes and cataracts; Ju Hua (chrysanthemum flower) clears the liver, improves red eyes, decreases excessive tearing, clears floaters and blurred vision; Chan Tui (Cicada Moulting) clears blurred vision and reduces redness and also relieves painful, swollen eyes; Qou Qi Zi (Chinese Wolfberry Fruit or Lycium) acts on the liver and kidney deficiencies of Qi and corrects blurred vision and vision loss; Mi Menghua (Buddha Flower Bud) improves sensitivity to light and soothes excessive tearing. Kleyne also noted that acupuncture in Chinese holistic care has clearly been an effective way to manage most chronic and degenerative eye diseases. Kleyne urged listeners to become more familiar with these time-honored traditional Chinese methods for relieving the symptoms of many eye afflictions, including dry eye disease. She also encouraged people to understand water’s priority in the fight against dry eye disease.

Japanese Study Shows Coffee May Relieve Dry Eye Suffering

20 Apr

Sharon Kleyne Finds Caffeine Study Intriguing. Study Suggests Caffeine Helps Dry Eye Sufferers with Genetic Variations in Two Genes.

Sharon Kleyne tells us that dry eye disease affects more than 4 million people age 50 and older in the United States every year. This rampant condition occurs when the eye fails to produce enough tears or when tears are lost from the eye’s surface as a result of excessive evaporation. Unchecked, this condition can lead to more serious eye illness, even blindness.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is currently the only product that supplements dry eye with pure water and nothing else. Kleyne explained that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting 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®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “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 lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

Nature may have also provided, for some, another source of relief. According to AsianScientist, Dr. Reiko Arita of the University of Tokyo School of Medicine created a study based on an earlier study that showed that caffeine users had a lower risk of contracting dry eye disease than non-caffeine users. Like the previous study, Arita’s research showed that 13% of caffeine users had dry eye symptoms while 17% of non-caffeine users had dry eye symptoms. Caffeine is known to increase the secretion of saliva and digestive juices.

Arita’s team also analyzed DNA samples of participants. They were looking for two genetic variations known to play a role in metabolizing caffeine. Researchers found that participants with genetic variations in the ADORA2A AND CYP1A2 genes showed greater tear production after caffeine consumption. “If confirmed by more research,” Arita said, “our findings on caffeine should be useful in treating dry eye syndrome.”
