Mist The Eyes

10 Feb

Researchers Claim Mist Is Better Than Eye Drops. Researchers Praise Mist’s Novel Approach.

William D. Mathers, M.D., Julia Oxford, Ph.D. and Philip Paden, Ph.D. agree that the problems associated with the sprinkling Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, of eye drops can be overcome with the use of a specialized water mist. The only available product that follows this method is Natures Tears® EyeMist®, developed by the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® in Grants Pass, Oregon.

All three researchers agree that misting dry eyes is the simplest and most effective approach to restoring tear film dilution through the use of pure water without additives or preservatives and applying the water as an ultra-fine micron mist. The water mist approach retains the simplicity of water while overcoming the possibility of severe osmotic shock. The water mist accomplishes this by diluting the tear volume with exquisitely small micro-droplets. This new technology engineers the diameter of the mist droplet to be within a highly desirable 40-60 micron range. The micro-droplets land on the ocular surface and pass through the lipid layer where they dilute the water layer without washing away normal tear constituents. The canister nozzle delivers a volume of 1-2 micro-liters per square centimeter per second at 14 inches from the face. Because the average exposed ocular surface area is 2 square centimeters, the result is 2 micro-liters per second to the eye. In other words, in one or two seconds, the tear volume is sufficiently diluted to restore normal osmolarity.

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.

William Mathers, MD, Answers Questions About Nature’s Tears EyeMist

4 Jun

Dr. William Mathers, a former consultant for Bio Logic Aqua Research, answered a few questions about Nature’s Tears EyeMist.

How does Nature’s Tears EyeMist differ from eye drops? Nature’s Tears EyeMist utilizes an entirely different approach than eye drops to correct the tear film in a person with dry, irritated eyes. By misting the tear film surface with sub-micro-liter droplets of very pure water, the thickness and concentration of the aqueous layer can be restored to normal without losing the lipid layer or beneficial proteins. Nature’s Tears EyeMist is the first optical application to utilize a water mist rather than chemical eye drops.

What is the role of the tear film in dry, irritated eyes? The human tear film, covering the cornea’s external surface, has three layers. The mucin layer, the aqeous layer, and the lipid layer. The discomfort and blurring of dry eyes begins with the evaporation of pure water from the aqueous layer. This thins the layer and increases the concentration of dissolved electrolytes and beneficial proteins. These dissolved substances keep the eyes comfortable and safe from infection but when they become unnaturally concentrated, burning and stinging result.

When should Nature’s Tears EyeMist be used? Nature’s Tears EyeMist is specifically indicated for patients who do not tolerate artificial tears well. In addition, the product benefits every disorder whose symptoms include dry, irritated eyes. Patients with eye irritation (dryness, burning, itching, fatigue, etc.), from dry eye, contact lenses, post-Lasik surgery, computer eye strain, lupus, scleroderma, harsh indoor and outdoor conditions, airline travel, sports activities, smoke, dust, air pollution and low humidity will all benefit. The mist is effective in all climates and for all ages all over the world. Best results are obtained if the mist is applied properly, which may require a small amount of instruction and practice. Nature’s Tears EyeMist is 100% safe and may be used as often as necessary, even by patients with severe dry eye. The product may be safely used with any other eye application or medication.

How do I apply Nature’s Tears EyeMist? Hold dispenser about 8 to 12 inches from eyes and press the nozzle, misting for 1 to 2 seconds in a sweep across both eyes while keeping eyes open. Do not aim directly at eyes. To avoid reflex blinking, begin by pointing the mist at the side of your eyes. The mist application supplies not only sufficient moisture to replenish the tear film in both eyes, but it also moisturizes the eyelids and the facial skin around the eyes.
