As global drought and air pollution worsen, predicts water researcher Sharon Kleyne, a small, portable hand-held eye mist humidifier could join toothbrushes, sunglasses and soap as indispensable personal care and grooming lifestyle items used by nearly everyone. Kleyne bases this prediction on reports that environmentally caused dry eye complaints - which the eye mist relieves - are a serious and rapidly growing public health crisis.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® show, is Founder and Research Director for Bio-Logic Aqua Research, a fresh water, atmospheric and health research and product development center. Natures Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center's global signature product to instantly humidify dry eyes. The show is broadcast on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel, Health and Wellness Channel, and Apple iTunes.

Humid Air May Be More Dehydrating than Dry Air Reports Water and Health Researcher

The global increase in dry eye complaints is attributed, according to Kleyne, to increasingly widespread drought and pollution. In the United States, dry eye complaints have become the most common reason for eye doctor visits. In addition to air pollution and low atmospheric humidity, environmental dry eye risk factors include too much time spent indoors, prolonged computer use and fluorescent lighting.

In countries where the air is much dryer or more polluted than in the United States, says Kleyne, the incidence of dry eye is even higher and complications related to dry eye, such as corneal ulcers, conjunctivitis and blepharitis, are also much higher. The rate of blindness in these countries far exceeds the United States - partly because medical care isn't as good.

The purpose of a personal hand held eye mist humidifier is to supplement the water contained in the ocular tear film, which is 98% water. Conditions such as dry air and air pollution cause the tear film's water content to evaporate faster than it can be replaced. The loss of as little as 2% of the tear film's water can trigger dry eye complaints.

Kleyne notes that when humans first appeared on Earth, there were no toothbrushes, clothing, sunglasses, hair brushes, soap, bathtubs, forks, drinking glasses, potato chips, soft drinks, aspirin, antibiotics - and the list goes on and on. The human body, according to Kleyne, had a built-in ability to survive without these items - at least for 30 or 40 years. Personal care and grooming items became a lifestyle necessity when humans began populating all parts of the planet, changing their environment, growing and processing food - and desiring to live longer and better.

Nature's Tears® EyeMist®, a product of Kleyne's Bio-Logic Aqua Research, is the first commercially available eye and skin humidifier that is hand-held, all-natural, contains only 100% fresh water, and is easily carried and applied.

There are many benefits, according to Kleyne, to a personal hand-held eye and skin humidifier carried in the purse or pocket, or kept in the desk or glove compartment. The mist is pure water, has no dosage limit and may be safely applied whenever the eyes begin to feel uncomfortable. There are no chemical additives, preservative or potential allergens. The mist is applied quickly and conveniently, often without stopping what you are doing. It can be applied while driving a car, walking down the street or operating a computer. Because the sterile water always remains sealed inside the misting unit, there is no opportunity for contamination. And, Kleyne adds, the effect is instantaneous.

Kleyne's other suggestions for maintaining tear film water content: Avoid high risk situations for dehydration or dry eye. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day in addition to all other fluid intake. Take regular baths and showers. Get sufficient rest. Wear sunglasses and avoid solar radiation, Eat a nutritious diet. And keep the house properly humidified (40% to 60%).
