Sharon Kleyne Reports on Eye Misting, an Entirely New Approach to Dry Eye Relief
Dry Eye and Tear Film Discoveries from Bio-Logic Aqua Research Offer All-Natural All-Water Eye Hydration
Correct Application Is the Key
Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research, Inc., has discovered a new approach to dry eye relief and treatment: An all-natural all-water mist applied to the air in front of the eyes rather than directly into the eyes. The eye mist is absorbed directly into the tear film without the inconvenience, mess or blurred vision associated with commercial eye drops.
Mrs. Kleyne is best knows as host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water syndicated radio talk show,
With dry eye symptoms now the number one reason for eye doctor visits in the United States, one of Sharon Kleyne's personal missions, with the support of thousands of eye doctors across the United States, is to educate the public about dry eye prevention and the tear film.
According to Lasik pioneer Marguerite McDonald, MD, a frequent Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water guest, occasional dry eye symptoms, left untreated, could lead to severe chronic dry eye, which for some may be debilitating and even life-altering. Dry eye can also lead to corneal ulceration, impaired vision and numerous eye diseases.
Researchers have long known that the simplest and most natural method of soothing dry eyes is to add two-to-five microliters (millionths of a liter) of all-natural water to the tear film. A commercially viable method of administering water in these minute quantities was discovered in 1999, when Bio-Logic Aqua Research developed an application method that supplements tear film moisture with an all-natural, ultra-fine, pH balanced (6.49) water mist, applied with a personal, hand-held misting device.
Eye misting instantly soothes dry eyes and is convenient and easy to apply even with unsteady hands. Unlike eye drops, you don't need to touch your eyelids, tilt back your head or aim a dropper. A two-second eye mist application allows the tear film to absorb exactly the amount required and the mist does not flood the tear film or disrupt the natural tear film structure.
All-water eye misting instantly soothes computer eye strain and can be done while wearing contact lenses. The eye mist is 100% safe and unlike eye drops, may be applied as often as desired. There are no additives, chemicals, preservatives or propellants. The eye mist will not cause eye make-up to run and has a four-year shelf life.
Sharon Kleyne cautions that for maximum benefit, the eye mist must be correctly applied. The most common error, she explains, is attempting to apply the mist like an eye drop and aiming directly into the eyes. Applying too much mist can negate some of the benefit.
The objective, according to Sharon Kleyne, is simply to create a swirl of moisture around the face, like the humidity in the air, from which the eyes absorb as much water as they need. Brief blinking is OK.
For maximum benefit, Sharon Kleyne's recommends the following:
- With eyes open, point the mist canister's nozzle towards the side of the face next to the eyes. Pointing the nozzle directly at the eyes could induce a reflex to pull away and close the eyes.
- Press the top of the canister to release the mist.
- Move the mist canister across the face, 8 to 12 inches from the eyes, in a one-to-two-second sweep. Do not mist directly into eyes.
