Kleyne Weighs In On Dry Eye Complaint & Menopause

14 Sep

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Soothes Dry Eye Symptoms Brought on By Menopause. Millions of Menopausal Women Turn to Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for Relief.

Menopause is challenging enough for women to negotiate, but how many know that this natural transformation associated with aging often triggers—during and after menopause—excessive dry eye disease? How does that happen? It happens like this. The meibomian glands produce oil, which ensures stability of the lachrymal (or tear) film. Yet, as we age the glands produce less and less oil; during menopause, the glands may cease oil production altogether. When the oil from the glands is ineffective or altogether missing, the tear film becomes unhealthy. Excessive evaporation weakens the tear film and dry eye disease is the result.

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®, wants you to know that 16.8 million Americans over the age of 18 have been diagnosed this year (2017) with dry eye disease; twice as many women than men are afflicted. Menopause in large part contributes to this greater number of women diagnosed with dry eye disease. Dry eye symptoms may include itching and burning eyes, blurred vision, headache, fatigue, a “grainy” feeling in the eyes and eye discomfort.

Kleyne and her co-researchers and workers at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® advocate taking personal proactive responsibility for your health. When it comes to a menopausal dry eye condition, it means finding a way to replenish lost tear film moisture that is effective, all-natural, quick, easy and convenient to apply. Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® has developed just such a product: Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. This breakthrough application represents an entirely new approach to eye moisturizing. It is a pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water; it’s a self-limiting (your eye takes in only as much as it needs) patented micron-size mist rather than a formulated medication applied with an eyedropper. No matter your age or gender, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® allows you to take personal proactive control over dry eyes and offers instant, personal, portable relief anywhere. If you are experiencing menopause, it’s wise to keep close at hand a supply of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for those crucial times when your eye’s tear film is just too dry to tear up.

New Education about Menopause and Dry Eye

18 Jun

Laurie Barber, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Arkansas, talks with Sharon Kleyne about Dry Eye and Menopause.

Dr. Barber practices in all areas of ophthalmology but does research on corneal inflammation, which can be caused by dry eye. There is no skin over the cornea and it is protected only by the corneal membrane and the tear film so it’s very delicate. If the tear film is healthy, the eye is likely to be healthy.

According to Dr. Barber, hydration and diet are critical to retain moisture in the eyes. You should also eat green, leafy veggies, fruit and omega-3’s.

In younger people, according to Dr. Barber, there are very few symptoms of dry eye. Dry eye is most common in people over 35.  Dry eye symptoms include burning, itching, irritated, red eyes, and blurred vision.

The hormonal changes leading to menopause, she explained, start at around age 35, and while men have some of the same hormonal fluctuations as women, women have more hormones and more dry eye.

Ms. Kleyne asked what women can do to treat menopausal dry eye, and Dr. Barber said to do what you would for hot flashes; Exercise, drink lots of water, try to stay in a cool place and wear layered clothing so you can cool yourself off.

Sharon Kleyne is the founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, the maker of Nature’s Tears EyeMist. Nature’s Tears EyeMist is an all-natural mist for dry eyes.
