How Dry Is My Eye

16 Feb

Sharon Kleyne Answers Dry Eye Questions. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Solves Dry Eye Mysteries.

“Tell me, Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® with an international reputation as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor, “how dry is my eye?”

“If,” says Sharon Kleyne, “your eyes are itching, blurring or burning, you are suffering with dry eye symptoms. If your eyes are irritated, if you’ve been indoors too long with forced air heat or air conditioning, if you’ve been sitting too long in front of a computer or TV screen and have eyestrain, headache and/or a ‘grainy’ sensation, then you’ve got it—dry eye disease. The ultimate cause of dry eye disease,” Kleyne goes on, “is over-concentration of salt (electrolyte) due to moisture (water) loss in the tear film’s aqueous layer (the tear film is naturally 99 percent water). This moisture loss is a result of dehydration caused by evaporation of the tear film’s water vapor. When moisture is depleted, electrolyte and other substances become over-concentrated and discomfort results. But when the electrolyte is properly diluted, discomfort disappears.”

“Wow, Mrs. Kleyne. I have all of these symptoms! You are America’s leading water educator, researcher and advocate and the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America. You are always giving great advice to everybody about water research, new water technology and health. Please tell me! What can I do about my symptoms?”

“For dusty, dry eyes,” says Sharon Kleyne, “I recommend my research center’s signature product, Natures Tears® EyeMist®. It’s the only product on the market that effectively supplements the eye’s tear film. In 2002,” Kleyne continues, “Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® developed a system that emulates the air’s natural humidity by applying moisture as an ultra-fine, pH-balanced (<7.0) water mist. With Natures Tears® EyeMist®, tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with all natural, pH-balanced (6.49), Trade Secret tissue culture grade water that is ideal for tear film penetration. That’s exactly what eyes challenged by dry eye symptoms need. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements the tear lens.”

“Are you talking about eye drops, Mrs. Kleyne? I have trouble using them. They sting and they’re messy.”

“No way am I talking about eye drops!” says Kleyne. “Eye drops merely trap moisture; they do not supplement the water of the eye. Applying Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is easy and fun! You apply it with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron mist. Think of the experience as your eyes enjoying a wonderful tryst with a healing mist.”

“Thank you, Sharon Kleyne, for your incredible advice! I’d love to hear from other readers that have tried this product while fighting the effects of dry eye disease. Please write in and share your experience!

Sharon Kleyne Shares The Solution For Dry Eye

16 Feb

Radio Host Sharon Kleyne Has the Dry Eye Product for You. Dry Eye Foe Kleyne Gives You the Power To Defeat Dry Eye.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, wants you to know that dry eye disease in the U.S. exceeds all other diseases that ophthalmologists and optometrists diagnose and treat each year. She also wants you to know that the numbers are spiraling out of control among aging populations around the earth. Kleyne has explained many times 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).

America’s leading water researcher, advocate and researcher of dry eye disease, Sharon Kleyne believes that our biggest health threat targets our eyes. “Dry eye disease is a billion dollar business,” Kleyne says, “and we must educate people about the short-and-long-term dangers of dry eye conditions. “Do you know,” Kleyne asks, “that dry eye disease can lead to blindness? We’ve seen dry eye disease vault to epidemic proportions in this country,” Kleyne adds, “and around the world. There are more than 250 million cases of dry eye disease in China every year and more than 30 million annual cases in the U.S. We must reduce these numbers and reduce them fast.”

Kleyne has educated people for years about the dangers and supplementation of dry eye disease and she loves to encourage people to experience a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle. She urges everyone to visit http://www.biologicaqua.com/ for more information. Kleyne enjoys an international reputation as the global expert on dehydration of earth’s fresh water and dehydration of the eyes and skin as a result of the excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor, so when she talks about dry eye disease and evaporation, it’s a good idea to listen. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne says, “we begin to evaporate, or dry out, a process that continues until we die. In order to sustain excellent health and prolong life,” Kleyne continues, “one must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis. This must be done to replenish the evaporating water vapor.”

The best place for sufferers of dry eye to turn is the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, which Sharon Kleyne founded more than two decades ago. The research center remains committed to new water research and technology that supplements and replenishes earth’s and the body’s water vapor. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the research center’s signature product and the number one scourge of dry eye disease in the world, 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 mist. It is the only product on the international market, Kleyne points out, that supplements the eye’s tear film, which is 99 percent water. Kleyne also says 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®,” Sharon 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,” Kleyne continues, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse. Why?” Kleyne asks her audience. “Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement the tear lens. So get the supplement, not the stop-gap to deal with your dry eye symptoms.”

Sharon Kleyne urges readers to write in with their own stories of coping with dry eye disease. “Ask question, which is the quickest way to learn,” says Kleyne. “Let’s engage in dialogue that will make us all healthier.”

Sharon Kleyne Shares Origin Of The Word Dry

What Do You Know about Dry. Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Knows Dry.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, enjoys an international reputation as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. She is also an acclaimed leader in the research of dry eye disease. Recently, she wondered how much people really know about the word ‘dry’, so she thought she would offer some facts.

The word ‘dry’ is Germanic. It comes from the Middle Low German ‘droge’ and the German ‘trocken’; ‘dry’ is also descended from the Dutch word, ‘droog’ and the Old English ‘dryge’ (adjective) and ‘drygan’ (verb). Today, ‘dry’ means without moisture (think dry clothes, a dry well, for instance).

“Now think of ‘dry’ associated with the eye,” said Sharon Kleyne. “A dry eye is not a happy eye, especially when you consider that the tear lens of the eye is normally 99 percent water.” That is why Kleyne’s research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® developed Natures Tears® EyeMist®, the only product on the market that truly supplements the water of the eye. Eye drops only trap water; Natures Tears® EyeMist® replenishes and supplements eye water that has been lost due to evaporation.

What is the Eye? (Part 2)

Just How Does That Crazy Eyeball Work? Sharon Kleyne Wants You To Understand the Eye.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, wants you to have the healthiest eyes on earth. How do you get them? By learning everything there is to know about your eyes and precious eyesight. In the case of the eye, ignorance is never bliss. In this Series, Kleyne hopes to ‘open your eyes’ to the miracle of those two squishy marbles hanging out in their caves on either side of your nose.

“When we ponder what the eye is,” says Sharon Kleyne, “we simultaneously think about how the eye works.” Kleyne says we start with the cornea. That is where light rays come in. It was Shakespeare who wrote that the eyes are the windows of the soul, and that’s fair enough, yet it’s the cornea that is the window of the eye. The cornea also possesses a super power, a refractive power that bends light rays. This refractive power bends the light rays so that they can pass through the pupil, which is at the center of the iris, and that is how the cornea makes it all possible for light to enter the eye. The corner also keeps unwanted particles out of the eye. Without light, there is no sight.

The iris also plays a critical role in the working of the eye. The iris acts like a camera shutter. Manipulating the light that enters the eye, the iris shrinks and expands what is seen. Next, the light rays pass through the natural crystalline lens; the lens is clear and flexible and it acts like a camera lens. It does so by shortening and lengthening width, which allows it to focus the light rays appropriately. In a way, this lens rather acts like those fun house mirrors at carnivals. The lens focuses light through a vitreous humor, which is a substance much like a gel. This gel actually packs the back of the eye and helps it to retain its more or less circular shape. This gel also give essential support to the retina.

Sharon Kleyne describes how the retina takes the image that the cornea puts into focus through the eye’s internal lens and turns it into electrical impulses. These impulses are then carried by the optic nerve to the brain. Kleyne says that you will still be able to see if you don’t know how your eyes work, but it’s smarter to educate yourself. “You only have two eyes,” says Kleyne, “(if you’re lucky) and you shouldn’t ever take them for granted.”

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, which Kleyne founded more than two decades ago, remains committed to new water research and technology that supplements and replenishes earth’s and the body’s water vapor with 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device.

Understanding Tear Film and Eye Hydration Could Prevent Dry Eye

23 Feb

Bio Logic Aqua Research is a premier water technology company, specializing in products that support moisture in the skin and eyes.

According to Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research, understanding eye hydration and the eyes’ all-important tear film and could help prevent dry eye disease.

Especially important is the environment’s role as a cause of dry eye.

Eye dehydration and tear film water loss can weaken resistance to bacterial and viral invasion, impair visual functioning and lead to numerous eye diseases and conditions.

Dehydration related eye conditions include itching and/or burning eyes, blurred vision, transient dry eye syndrome, severe dry eye syndrome, corneal ulceration, glaucoma, computer eye strain, eye allergies, eye cancers and more.

According to Sharon Kleyne, the incidence of eye dehydration and dry eye has dramatically increased in the past 20 years and is becoming a global health crisis. Much of the increase can be attributed to environmental factors.

Environmental factors that could dehydrate the eyes and tear film could include:

Indoor conditions such as forced-air heating and cooling and insulated walls and windows.

Lifestyle choices and personal habits that could contribute to eye dehydration include wearing contact lenses, prolonged computer use, participation in extreme sports (with lots of perspiration and exposure to heat and sun), caffeine and alcohol consumption, not drinking enough water, too much time spent indoors, cigarette smoking, medications, etc.

Exposure to smoke, dust, wind, extreme heat and cold and other outdoor conditions could also contribute to eye dehydration.

A major contributor to eye dehydration is global climate change because the tear film obtains much of its water from the surrounding humidity in the air. In many areas, the air in becoming dryer and the humidity lower. This lowers the potential for hydration from the air and increases tear film water evaporation.

Even where the air is not dry, the humidity could be contaminated by air pollution, creating dehydrating and unhealthy conditions.

A Natural Approach to Eye Care

15 Feb

Michael Edson, MS (Naw Paltz, NY). Co-founder of Natural Eye Care (with Dr. Marc Grossman). “Natural approaches to macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, floaters, dry eyes, myopia and presbyopia.”

Michael Edson works with Dr. Marc Grossman in the field of natural eye care. He is trained in Chinese medicine and acupuncture, and also in Asian martial arts. He was in Beijing during the Tiananmen Square incident. He recently spoke with Sharon Kleyne on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio talk show.

Sharon wondered why the Chinese are so divergent from the West in their medical practice. Edson said there are many theories on how acupuncture originated but that they mostly were not in touch with western medicine or the Greek way of thinking (scientific method). They began to notice the effect of touching the body in various places and over thousands of years, a sophisticated system developed. They also pay attention to body color, smell and shape, and symptoms in the tongue and iris.

Eventually, this was boiled down to a theory of “meridians,” that energy flows through the body in channels or rivers. Water is important because it keeps the meridians flowing and also washes out waste (it must be pure water, not soda, juice, tea or coffee).

Edson practices aikido, which is a martial art emphasizing no winner or loser. When attacked, the objective is to neutralize the opponent to show them they can’t beat you, then negotiate the problem. Blows are redirected and the opponent is disabled. There is a strong spiritual aspect to this and negative energy is avoided.

Tai chi focuses on self healing and martial arts; karate is more internal with an emphasis on healing. People need to believe they have power and control over their own lives and that they are part of the Earth and their community. Martial arts can be very helpful with this.

Regarding health, Edson noted that quick fixes are usually not that effective and that most illness is caused by a chronic imbalance going back a long way. Disease can take years to develop and a lifestyle change can take years to correct the imbalance. Water, allergies and stress are all involved.

Regarding nutrition, everyone is different. The Eskimos require a lot of meat and fat, which are slow burning. Edson is against refined carbohydrates, which he says can cause autoimmune disease (and sugar is cancer causing).

Sharon noted that sodium may not be as bad as doctors would have you believe. It helps you retain water.

Mike talked about intestinal or digestive flora (bacteria), especially candida. An imbalance of digestive flora can lead to numerous diseases and allergies. “Probiotics” help to rebalance digestive flora. E coli is a common stomach flora as is lactobacillus.

Edson recommends a diet that is 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. Meat and carbohydrates are acidic and acid can cause the release of inflammatory hormones.

Regarding meditation, the simplest way to get started is to buy a “guided meditation” tape. It promotes deep relaxation and activates lesser used parts of the brain.

Edson expressed concern that some children never experience a state of no stress. Both are needed to thrive – a “yin-yang” balance.

Regarding natural eye care, Edson recommends his website with Dr. Grossman, www.naturaleyecare.com. It lists many proactive measures you can take to promote good vision and healthy eyes. They also have a free booklet of eye exercises and acupressure points for the eye.
