"If you use a computer," says Sharon Kleyne, global water advocate, entrepreneur (Nature's Tears® EyeMist®) and Internet talk radio host (Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water), "the best gift you can give your eyes is to keep an all-water eye mist on your desk and apply it frequently."
The subject of computers, computer eye strain (also called "computer vision syndrome" and "computer eye fatigue") and dry eye comes up frequently on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water. Mrs. Kleyne has interviewed numerous leading ophthalmologists and computer experts on the subject of computers and eye health.
The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water is heard on World Talk Radio, Voice America, Green Talk Network and Apple iTunes.

Computer eye strain is a form of dry eye, caused by water evaporation in the eye's protective tear film covering. When too much water is lost, discomfort is experienced. If allowed to continue, tear film water loss can cause chronic dry eye, corneal ulceration and numerous eye dehydration diseases, potentially leading to visual impairment and blindness.
Computer eye stain and dry eye symptoms should never be ignored. For a comprehensive list of tips to prevent computer eye strain or soothe symptoms, go to www.naturestears.com.
Eye misting is the application of natural water to the eyes' tear film in the form of an ultra-fine mist. Misting hydrates the natural tear film in the same way that a humid environment hydrates the eyes. The eyes absorb the tiny water droplets from the air. Once the tear film's water content is returned to normal, symptoms usually disappear.
The tear film is 99% water and only pure water that is not bound in chemicals and is applied as a fine mist, will naturally hydrate a water deficient tear film.
Formulated eye drops for dry eye usually consist of artificial chemicals applied as a single large drop that can flood the tear film and wash away beneficial natural tear film components such as enzymes, proteins and antibodies. The eye drop label dosage must not be exceeded. Under some circumstances (such as meibomian gland dysfunction) eye drops may be helpful in sealing in moisture, if applied immediately following a water mist. .
Eye mist is applied by pointing the container towards the face, pressing the actuator and making a two to three second sweep around the eye area. There is no need to aim directly at the eyes or hold the eyelids opened. As long as the surrounding air is misted, the eyes will benefit. The entire process should take less than five seconds.
