Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Examines Myopia In China

3 May

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Soothes Nearsighted Eyes. Water Advocate Kleyne Seeks Myopia Answers in China.

Something odd is happening in China these days. More and more young people are wearing glasses. 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, would like to know what is going on. “Of course,” said Kleyne, “I’m inclined to believe that it has something to do with computer screens and all of the hand-held devices that people everywhere are using.”

Sharon Kleyne is in fact on to something, yet it is not the whole story. In Shanghai, for example, a whopping 86% of high school students suffer from myopia—or shortsightedness. These numbers are climbing all over the country. It is even considered an epidemic, yet researchers are still not sure what exactly causes the condition. Chinese scientists do point to computer screens and the smaller screens of hand-held devices, but they also cite the culture’s intense competitiveness as a contributing factor. One researcher pointed out that a typical Chinese child eats dinner then does homework from 7 until 11:30 every night. A schedule like that can wear out even the strongest pair of eyes!

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®, thatis accepted in the medical profession and can, at the least, provide critical relief for myopic eyes. 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 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 tired eyes need.”
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 water research as eye diseases are on the rise around the world. “Natural tears in China,” Kleyne said, “are the right ticket to soothe the symptoms of myopia,” 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 and her team at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® research center want to hear more of your voices and stories. Have you been to China? Are you shortsighted? Do you have a story of your own to share about that? If you do, please get in touch and let us know!


Vision Care and Chinese Medicine

3 Mar

Dr. Marc Grossman is a New York optometrist who has integrated elements of Chinese Medicine into his practice, with emphasis on treating the whole body rather than just symptoms, to prevent and cure disease. He recommends the 2009 book, Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine, by Andy Rosenfarb, for more information on the subject.

While speaking with Sharon Kleyne on The Sharon Kleyne Hour Radio Show, Dr. Grossman noted that the incidence of dry eye, near and farsightedness, cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration are all increasing dramatically. Much of this can be attributed to computer use. He believes the symptoms are part of a whole-body issue involving lifestyle and environmental factors. Macular degeneration is a major cause of blindness.

A central theme in Dr. Grossman’s practice is vision therapy, in which a series of exercises are employed to improve and maintain good vision. Since the eye is more closely connected to the brain than any other organ (80% of learning is visual), the mind can be a powerful influence. Dr. Grossman improved his own vision by 70% using these exercises.
