When fresh water advocate Sharon Kleyne first made public her discoveries about tear film water content and dry eye, in 1999, they were considered so radical that most vision care professionals did not take them seriously. Fifteen years later, her approach is widely accepted. This is due in no small measure, says Kleyne, to eye care professionals from around the world who appeared as guests on her radio show, the Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water®, and endorsed her discoveries.
On her upcoming show of March 9, 2015, Kleyne will discuss the show's eighth anniversary, her dry eye discoveries and guests on her 340 shows, who talked about vision care. For the live show and/or podcasts of past shows, go to www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, a global research and technology center founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere and dehydration. Nature's Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center's signature hand held humidifying device for dry and dehydrated eyes.
Kleyne began with the premise that the ocular tear film covering the eye's exposed portions, is 99 percent water and that in dry eye syndrome, some of that water is lost. The logical place to start in treating dry eye, to Kleyne, was to replace the missing water. Dry eye is a potentially serious condition that can lead to extreme discomfort, visual impairment and blindness.
The tear film, Kleyne discovered, is capable of absorbing a significant amount of water directly from water vapor in the atmosphere. Conversely, when the atmosphere becomes dry or polluted, the tear film can lose moisture through evaporation, resulting in dry eye symptoms.
The highly complex tear film, Kleyne observed, contains dozens of ingredients including proteins, antibodies, lipids and salt. When tear film water is lost to evaporation, non-water components become more concentrated, resulting in irritation and discomfort. Loss of tear film water for any reason (dry air, illness, medication or tear gland dysfunction), triggers a message to the brain that an injury has occurred, causing the brain to flood the ocular surface with inflammatory hormones that perpetuate the discomfort.
Application of a pure water mist to the air in front of the eyes dilutes the salt and inflammatory hormones, calming the symptoms. The mist emulates the air's natural humidity, which the tear film easily absorbs. The mist is conveniently administered and the results are instantaneous, with no eye drops, droppers, potentially allergenic preservatives or formulated chemicals.
Earth's environment, Kleyne believes, is becoming increasingly hostile to eye health. Weather extreme are increasing, deserts are becoming larger, areas of prolonged drought are growing and humidity in the upper atmosphere that condenses into clouds is decreasing.
Pollution particles such as carbon soot and fly ash are desiccants that suck water out of anything they touch - including eyes. Kleyne believes that Nature's Tears® EyeMist®, the personal hand held eye humidifying device developed by Kleyne's Bio-Logic Aqua Research, will eventually become an indispensable personal amenity for vision health.
Indicators that Kleyne's discoveries are gaining acceptance includes increasing global sales, upcoming product launches in several countries including China, thousands of doctor's office sales accounts, and a list of 22,000 United States Ophthalmologist and Optometrists who endorse Nature's Tears® EyeMist®.
Thirty Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® shows have been devoted to vision care. One outspoken supporter of Kleyne's discoveries, Marguerite McDonald, MD, has appeared four times. McDonald is best known for performing the world's first laser eye surgery.
Gerald Pollack, PhD, has also appeared four times. Pollock is known for his ground breaking work on the chemical structure and behavior of water molecules. He is the discoverer of "Fourth Phase Water" in addition to the solid, liquid and gas phases. Pollock strongly endorses Kleyne's discoveries.
Dr. Fang Yuan, of Zhejiang Dilon Biometrics in Zhanjiang, China; has appeared twice. Dr. Fang has been instrumental in bringing Nature's Tears® EyeMist® to China. "Very few people understand as well as Dr. Fang, the science and technology of Nature's Tears® EyeMist® and personal eye misting," says Kleyne. "He believes the product will be tremendously beneficial to the people of his country." ©2015 Bio-Logic Aqua Research. All rights reserved.
