Sharon Kleyne Talks about Dry Eye Education, Dry Eye Products and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, as heard on Apple iTunes, World Talk Radio, Voice America and Green Talk Network and Amazon.com.
Nearly everyone who regularly uses a computer experiences occupational computer eye strain symptoms. Dry eye and computer eye strain (also called computer dry eye) are a growing health crisis caused by a combination of computers, indoor and outdoor air pollution, and increasingly dry air. The phrase “dry eyes” is Googled, on average, 246,000 times a month.
As part of Sharon Kleyne’s interest in water and health, the creator of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio talk show and the product Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® has been researching the latest recommendations for prevention of dry eye and computer eye strain.
“Dry eye,” Mrs. Kleyne explains, “is the number one reason for United States eye doctor visits. Dry eye symptoms such as eye fatigue and blurred vision could lead to severe dry eye, corneal ulceration, impaired vision, lost productivity and blindness. The solution is education ”
Everyone who works daily at a computer, according to Shaorn Kleyne, should think about the following questions.
*Do you work at a computer all day and again at night?
*Do you drink enough water a day?
*Do you keep an eye mist such as Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® near your computer and apply it frequently?
*Are you proactive in keeping eyes, and the air around your desk, moist and humid?
*Do you keep eye drops beside your computer, use them frequently and worry about exceeding the recommended daily dosage?
*Do you work in an office with forced-air heating and cooling, fluorescent lighting and sealed windows?
*Is the air outside your office polluted?
*Do your eyes feel good in the morning but bother you later in the day?
*Do you get enough sleep?
*Are you constantly stressed and rushed?
*Do you get sleepy during the day?
*Do you drink coffee, smoke or eat sugar snacks while working?
*Is your productivity and attention span decreasing?
*Do your shoulders or neck get sore when you sit at the computer? Do you get frequent headaches or allergies?
*Are you overweight or gaining weight?
*How often do you eat dark green leafy vegetables? What about carrots? Do you eat fish regularly or take omega-3 supplements?
*How often do you take long, soaking baths?
*Are there anti-stress activities in your daily routine? How often to you take work breaks? How often do you rest your eyes?
*Are you bothered by screen glare? Have you positioned your computer to reduce glare? From your chair, do you look up, down or straight across at the screen?
Some of the above questions (such as “do you drink coffee”) suggest possible measures for proactive prevention. Others do not. Mrs. Kleyne has made numerous discoveries regarding computer eye strain, dry eye, lifestyle, water, health and nutrition and shares them in Part Two of this Two Part Series.
The only all-natural pH balanced eye mist designed to soothe dry eye and computer eye strain is Nature’s Tears EyeMist, sponsor of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water. Nature’s Tears EyeMist is available on http://www.Amazon.com under “Eye and Health Care,” and “Computer Accessories.”

Strategy for a New Global Business of Water Category Revitalizes Dry Skin, Oily Skin and Dry Make-up
Nature’s Mist® – a Simply Moist® experience! Woman invented, woman owned American product – now being discovered by women (and men) all over the world. New discovery – the Power of Water®.
Nature’s Mist® – Face of the Water® e-commerce commitment.
Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Oregon’s Bio-Logic Aqua Research and international water advocate, is announcing an increased emphasis on e-commerce and retail Internet accounts for Nature’s Mist® – Face of the Water®, the company’s breakthrough “business of water” product that naturally humidifies, hydrates and revitalizes dry skin, dry make-up and faded cosmetic colors.
“E-commerce,” explains Mrs. Kleyne, “is global, open 24 hours, and has a unique ability to quickly reach consumers of all ages and categories. This includes outreach to targeted subgroups such as women, teens, seniors, sports participants; allergy, acne and dermatitis sufferers; women who wear make-up, people in dry or polluted climates, office workers, airline passengers, etc.”
Nature’s Mist® – Face of the Water®, according to Mrs. Kleyne, has been extremely successful in high-end department stores, a TV infomercial and its own website (www.naturesmist.com). Internet retail venues such as Amazon.com have been especially effective in helping Nature’s Mist® reach out to consumers looking for natural skin care education and products for dry or oily skin.
Water is the ONLY method to moisturize skin.
After two decades of research, Sharon Kleyne has discovered and proven that skin is 70% water and that there is only one correct method to moisturize dry or oily skin – WATER! “Moisturizing” crèmes and lotions are moisture sealers that slow water loss. They do not add water to dry skin.
Sharon Kleyne’s breakthrough research led to the discovery of “Earth’s Secret” – Bio-Logic Aqua® tissue culture water, the only known all-natural water with the correct pH balance (slightly acidic 6.49 – compatible with human skin) and light mineral solute content (heavy minerals waters are drying to skin), for maximum beneficial skin absorption and bacterial protection. European waters tend to be alkaline (pH greater than 7.0), mineral-heavy and not skin compatible.
The secret spring water is now Bio-Logic Aqua Research’s “trade secret” and the only ingredient in Nature’s Mist® – Face of the Water®. Nature’s Mist® contains no formulated chemicals, preservatives, saline solution, potential allergens or harmful propellants.
New global discovery: Nature’s Mist® – Face of the Water®.
The all-natural Nature’s Mist method of skin hydration is a personal hand-held device that humidifies the air around the skin so the moisture can be naturally absorbed. The trade secret Bio-Logic Aqua® water was proven in double-blind research to be superior in absorption and retention. People all over the world report visible results instantly!
Nature’s Mist’s ageless secret spring water redefines dry skin and helps reduce dry lines and wrinkles. The Power of Water® revitalizes faded make-up and instantly restores cosmetic colors.
Dry skin, dry air and the environment.
“Worldwide,” Mrs. Kleyne explains, “the air we breathe is too dry. Everyone knows the air is polluted and dirty but few realize that our air is also losing its life-giving clean water content (humidity). Indoor air is even more dehydrating and Moisture Starvation® is the number one environmental threat to health. The good news is that my company’s personal hand-held water misting devices empower every individual to provide their own instant humidity supplement, regardless of how dirty or dry the air.
“Earth is always changing,” she concludes, “and for human life to survive, we must learn the Power of Water®. In the current global environment, with the help of our wonderful Internet partners, Bio-Logic Aqua’s “business of water” products, including Nature’s Mist® – Face of the Water®, will one day be as indispensable as drinking water, clothing, sunscreen and lip balm. The Power of Water® will save lives!”
The Nature’s Mist® product logo, according to Mrs. Kleyne, symbolizes the women of the world who carry water daily to save lives. Since the dawn of humankind, women have carried water (and still do in much of the world) to prevent moisture starvation and to cleanse and nourish their families.
“Five thousand children a day die from water related causes such as malaria, dehydration, diarrhea and melanoma,” she notes. “And 1.5 billion of the word’s 6 billion people lack adequate water.”
Sharon Kleyne is committed to helping alleviate the global water crisis. She Founded the Save-a-Child’s Life Foundation® to recognize pediatric melanoma and she hosts The Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water at http://www.worldtalkradio.com and on Apple iTunes and Green Talk Network, Mondays at 10 a.m. PST/PDT. The radio talk show is sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and Bio-Logic Aqua Research.

* Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research and as internationally syndicated radio talk show host (Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water®), recently announced a brand new United States patent on her company’s all-natural, non-eye drop eye mist product for dry eyes, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. This is the first and only dry eye product in the over-the-counter eye care market that is all-natural and not an eye drop.
* Nature’s Tears EyeMist is the only 100% water, 100% pure, all-natural, non-eye drop product sold in any natural health and pharmaceutical dry eye care section of any major drug store. No other dry eye product, with or without eye drops, is as natural, pure or biocompatible with the human eye and tear film. Because it is not an eye drop, Nature’s Tears EyeMist does not flood the tear film when applied so the tear film’s natural structure remains intact.
* Nature’s Tears EyeMist contains only 100% all-natural Bio-Logic Aqua tissue culture grade water. Unlike eye drops, the mist contains no saline, chemicals or formulated compounds. Also, eye drops with preservatives often cause an allergic reaction. Nature’s Tears EyeMist, without eye drops, is 100% safe, healthy and non-allergenic.
* Dry eye symptoms include itching eyes, burning eyes, red eyes, blurred vision, eye fatigue, headaches, shoulder aches, etc. Dry eye is commonly associated with dry air, indoor air, excessive heat or cold, numerous dehydration diseases, medications, wind, low humidity, computer use, airline travel, strenuous activities and many other situations. The most common product for dry eyes have always been formulated eye drops.
* Bio-Logic Aqua Research is the only company dedicated exclusively to all-natural water, health and wellness research and education worldwide (“Earth’s Human Mission”). The company’s research focuses on an all-natural water mist because unlike eye-drops, that is how the eyes (and skin), naturally hydrate themselves – by absorbing moisture from the air.
* Sharon Kleyne’s research has led to numerous environmental health and new all-natural wellness discoveries:
- All-natural water is the basis for natural health and life on Earth. The eyes’ all-important tear film is comprised of 99% water.
- Earth’s environment is causing dehydration diseases. The air is too dry, both indoors and outdoors, due to increasingly dry air from pollution, climate change and “techno environments.”
- Dry air and dehydration diseases (body water loss from birth) are the world’s #1 environmental health issues. 80% of eye doctor visits now relate to dry eye symptoms. 35 million people could be blind by 2035. Every four seconds, someone goes blind! 100 US cities are now listed as “dry eye hot spot.” Eye drops may alleviate some symptoms but the true solution is the power of water.
* Eye drops can be beneficial in helping to seal in tear film water. However, eye drops can also flood and disrupt the natural tear film structure, increasing the potential for water loss through evaporation.
* In 2009, Sharon Kleyne was awarded a United States patent on the technology of applying all-natural, 100% safe water eye mist to penetrate, hydrate and moisturize the natural tear film to soothe dry eyes without eye drops. Unlike eye drops, the mist also hydrates dry eyelids, a factor in dry eye.
* Sharon Kleyne’s all-water, all-natural, non-eye drop water discoveries have been endorsed by universities, doctors and scientists worldwide for their innovative approach to natural eye hydration.

Contact lenses, those handy-dandy little vision aids, make the difference for 28 million people between seeing clearly in all directions, or being confined to inconvenient and distorting eyeglasses or worse. With the many choices and technological advances available these days, contact lenses should continue to benefit millions of people who have less-than-perfect vision.
Here’s the catch: While a few contact lens users are able to wear their lenses for days or weeks at a time with no problem, such individuals are the exception. Many people can tolerate contact lenses only for short periods, and many cannot tolerate them at all. Even for those who tolerate them reasonably well, lenses frequently cause discomfort. This article will suggest a way to soothe much of the eye discomfort caused by contact lenses:
The amazing tear film
The main thing to know about contact lenses is that they float on the surface of the delicate and complex tear film that covers the exposed parts of the eyeball, and they rely on the tear film’s moisture (water content) to maintain their pliability, integrity and adherence. The surface tension of the tear film’s moisture against the lenses prevents them from falling out.
The problem is that the most popular types of lenses deplete the tear film’s moisture content and therefore interfere with healthy tear film functioning. Soft lenses, and gas permeable lenses, have been compared to miniature sponges because of the amount of tear film moisture they soak up. Even rigid lenses deplete some tear film moisture. In addition, all lenses, even gas permeable, reduce the amount of oxygen reaching the corneal surface. Rigid lenses restrict oxygen the most, which is one reason they are smaller.
Tear film function and structure
The tear film that covers the exposed optical surface is amazingly complex, considering that it is only about five microns (millionths of a meter) thick. Tear film components:
Lipid layer. This topmost layer is comprised of a very thin film of fatty oil that lubricates the eyelid and slows moisture evaporation from the lower layers.
Aqueous layer. The middle and thickest layer contains the vast majority of the tear film’s moisture. This is where most moisture loss occurs. The layer also contains electrolytes, proteins and bacteria-fighting antibodies. It provides oxygenated water to allow the cornea to breathe.
Mucin layer. This bottom layer glues the tear film to the optical surface.
Dry irritated eyes
When tear film moisture is depleted, the resulting abnormal changes can make the eyes feel uncomfortable. The most physically irritating results of tear film moisture loss are an over-concentration of electrolyte (salt) and proteins in the aqueous layer. Insufficient oxygen in the aqueous layer’s moisture can also cause discomfort. Discomfort can include itching, burning, irritation, eyestrain, headache, etc.
Soothing dry, irritated eyes
Soothing dry, irritated eyes, whether caused by contact lenses, environmental conditions or bodily dehydration from illness or stress, is a simple and logical tear film cross section procedure: Simply add moisture to the tear film! In the past 110 years of medical eye care research, however, this has proved more easily said than done.
One problem has been getting the moisture past the overlying lipid layer. As it turns out, our eyes already know how to accomplish this trick. The tear film is perfectly capable of extracting all the moisture it needs from the humidity in the air, provided the air is reasonably humid (70% at 70 degrees), and the humidity droplets are pure and unpolluted.
However…the standard solution to the problem of dry, irritated eyes has been not humidity but eyedrops. Since eyedrops rely on chemical formulations and eyedroppers, they pose numerous drawbacks. The typical eyedrop is ten times larger than the volume of the tear film. When applied, the drop may flood and wash away the natural tear film, including the evaporation-retarding lipid layer. Despite their complex chemistry, formulated eyedrops invariably lack one thing: The minute quantity of pure, natural, pH-balanced water that is all the tear film really needs.
- Additional drawbacks to eyedrops and wetting agents:
- You have to remove your contact lenses to apply them.
- Some people are allergic to the chemicals and preservatives.
- The eyedropper can cause injury.
- Applying eyedrops is a slow, tedious procedure.
In 2002, Bio-Logic Aqua Technologies Biomedical Research introduced Nature’s Tears EyeMist, the first effective, all-natural alternative to formulated eyedrops for dry, irritated eyes. For the first time, millions of contact lens wearers are obtaining instant relief from dry, irritated eyes…without eyedrops.
Nature’s Tears EyeMist solved the problem of getting moisture in extremely minute quantities past the lipid layer into the aqueous layer. This is accomplished very simply, by delivering the moisture as an ultra-pure, ultra-fine mist that emulates the air’s natural humidity. The mist is sprayed towards the face rather than into the eyes, enabling the tear film to extract exactly as much moisture as it needs, no more and no less. In most cases, all that is required to restore the tear film’s moisture content to full volume and comfort, is two to five nanoliters (billionths of a liter). That is far too little to apply with an eyedropper.
As an added benefit, delivering moisture in the form of a mist oxygenates the moisture, thus increasing the aqueous layer’s oxygen content.
The most beneficial component of eyedrops is the paraffin or oil that can serve as a sealer to slow tear film moisture loss. Eyedrops are most effective as a moisture sealer when the tear film’s moisture content is at full capacity. For best results, apply Nature’s Tears EyeMist immediately before applying eyedrops, and use the smallest amount of eyedrops possible. Since Nature’s Tears EyeMist has no dosage limit, it may also be applied between eyedrop applications, or when eyedrops are not convenient.
