Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®: New Discovery in Natural Products Marketing

Breakthrough Alternative for Consumers with Dry Eyes, Dry Eyelids and Computer Vision Syndrome

Dry eye, in the United States and worldwide, is becoming a crisis. Eighty-percent of eye doctor patients complain of dry eye symptoms such as itching, burning, blurred vision, red eyes, headache and fatigue. The importance of the eyelid in natural products marketing alternatives has only recently been recognized. Natural products researchers are discovering that if the tear film is dry, the eyelids will also be dry. This is especially true in chronic dry eye and in people who live in areas of extreme dry air or air pollution, or who spend a lot of time indoors.

The eyelid is critical in two areas of dry eye research:

  • Blink rate: Dry eye and tear film dehydration can result from a low rate of eyelid blinking. It may also result from an excessively high blink rate.
  • Eyelid health: The majority of dry eye patients have unhealthy and dry eyelids (blepharitis).

Blink rate. When using a computer, the eyelid’s blink rate, normally 15 to 20 blinks a minute, can slow to three blinks a minute. This is a primary cause of “computer vision syndrome” (CVS). A low blink rate increases exposure of the tear film to the air, increasing the amount of tear film water lost to evaporation.

Tear film evaporation and dehydration can also be worsened by a rapid blink rate. A normal tear film consists of a thin lipid (oil) layer that helps slow evaporation from the much thicker aqueous (water) layer underneath. Because blinking “wipes” the tear film and moves the layers, a rapid blink rate, like a low blink rate, can increase water evaporation and the potential for dehydration and dry eye.

Eyelid health. Researchers and individuals involved in natural products marketing, are discovering an enormous mutual influence between the tear film and eyelid health. Dry eye is frequently accompanied by blepharitis (eyelid inflammation), with red, inflamed, flaky, burning, itching and dry eyelids. When attempting to alleviate dry eye with an alternative all natural product, it is important to add supplemental water not only to the tear film but to the eyelids.

A new paradigm in eye moisture for natural products marketing. For those at high risk for dry eye, both the tear film and the eyelids can be kept hydrated with an all-natural, pure water eye mist supplement. Nature’s Tears EyeMist, from Bio-Logic Aqua Research, is a patented new alternative approach to natural products marketing for all-natural eye and eyelid hydration. The mist naturally supplements the tear film to soothe dry eye and dry eyelid – no matter how often you blink.

Nature’s Tears EyeMist contains 100% all-natural tissue culture grade water. The mist is applied in seconds and is non-allergenic; saline, chemical and preservative free. The product instantly hydrates dry eyes and dry eyelids to supplement tear film and eyelid moisture. Nature’s Tears EyeMist – a new paradigm that within a decade, will be found beside every computer.

Bio-Logic Aqua Research is continuing to investigate the relationship between dry eye, refractive eye surgery and tear film flooding from the application of formulated eye drops, al to develop alternative all-natural products.

Natural Alternative to Eye Drops

There are eye drops – and there are eye drops. Some eye drops are called “artificial tears” and some eye drops are called “redness relievers.” Whatever you call them, in an age of global warming, drying, drought, pollution, dehydrating “techno” environments and a rapidly growing epidemic of dry eye disease, worldwide sales of eye drops are booming.

But are eye drops the very best the pharmaceutical community has to offer to control the dry eye epidemic?

First of all, it is important to understand that untreated dry eye can lead to discomfort, blurred vision, headache, fatigue, loss of energy, depression, corneal ulceration, glaucoma, cataracts, eye cancer and blindness. Also, while there may be considerable room for improvement in the air quality of the United States and Europe, our air is fantastic compared to China, India, South Korea, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria. Nevertheless, in the U.S., dry eye symptoms have become the number one reason for eye doctor visits and over 100 U.S. cities are identified as “dry eye hot spots.” Globally, someone goes blind every five seconds, much of it related to air quality, water availability and water quality.

First Patent on Water Eye Mist for Dry Eye

Unexpected New Tear Film Discovery

“Method and Kit for Moisturizing the Surface of the Eye”

“It has been unexpectedly discovered that administering an amount of fluid (water) to the surface of the eye at a level below that which results in flooding and washing away of the tear film, results in an improvement in eye moisture (water) over prior methods” US patent #7524511-1B, April 9, 2009.

Bio-Logic Aqua Research Technologies International announces a new United States patent on a method of delivering water directly to the eyes, in the form of an ultra-fine mist, to increase tear film hydration and moisture content for dry eye relief. The eye mist has been found to reestablish the normal water state in individuals with dry eye.

(Grants Pass, OR, February 9, 2011) – On April 9, 2009, a United States patent was awarded to Sharon Kleyne, Founder and Research Director at Bio-Logic Aqua Research Technologies International, the company has announced. The patent is on a method of administering “aqueous fluid” (water) directly to the eyes’ tear film to increase moisture content and hydration for dry eye relief.

The eyes’ natural tear film, covering and protecting the eye’s surface, is a complex, three layered structure containing lipids, water, electrolyte, proteins and antibodies. Because conventional eye drop applications exceed the natural tear film volume, drops have the disadvantage of flooding the eye, which washes away the existing tear film and replaces it with the fluid that comprises the drops.

The newly patented water mist application delivers water hydration to the eyes as an ultra-fine eye mist, allowing the tear film to naturally absorb water directly from the air. The eye mist has been found to reestablish the normal water state in individuals with dry eye.

According to Sharon Kleyne, “This patented new eye mist method represents a paradigm shift in eye care that places all-natural absolute humidity at your fingertips to relieve dry eye and tear film dehydration without saline, inconvenient eye drops or allergenic chemicals.”

Tear film researchers at Bio-Logic Aqua have discovered a growing link between air pollution, drought and dry air, out of control allergies and the global crisis in dry eye and other dehydration diseases. The worldwide dry air and water crisis has created a rapidly growing demand for a hand held eye mist product that empowers each individual to become proactive in seeking education to protect their own health.

Truck Driving and Vision Care

Quick and simple tips for truckers, equipment operators and other Professional drivers, to reduce fatigue and protect vision.

It’s more common than you might realize, and it can be deadly. You’ve been on the road for three days straight, with not enough sleep, and the air-conditioner and diesel exhaust blasting your face and eyes. After a while, your lips and face get chapped, your neck and shoulders feel stiff, and your eyelids become so heavy you have to stop and grab some coffee. Even then, your eyes may continue to feel tired and burning. Because you’re on a tight schedule, you press on even though your eyes continue to bother you and you know you’re becoming a road hazard. There often just isn’t time, on the road, to adequately protect your eyes.

As you are probably aware, there are several things drivers can do to prevent or relieve tired, strained, irritated “Trucker’s Eyes” on a long distance trip. You’ll be pleased to learn that not all of them involve coffee or eyedrops, either. Bio-Logic Aqua Technologies Biomedical Research has developed a wealth of new information about caring for eyes and skin – the result of a decade of research into dry air and eye moisture. Even if you don’t follow these recommendations to the letter, you never know when the information might come in handy. It might even prevent an accident.

The number-one villain: Dehydration

Much of the discomfort that truckers experience while driving comes from dehydration (drying out) of the eyes, skin (especially the facial skin), and breathing passages. Alleviate the dryness and many of the the symptoms go away!

Dry irritated eyes.

Several environmental factors in the typical truck cabin can combine to cause a slight increase in the rate of moisture (water) evaporation from the TEAR FILM covering the eyes’ exposed surfaces. The tear film is amazingly complex even though it is only about five microns (millionths of a meter) thick. It doesn’t take much evaporation to cause problems. The tear film consists of:

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. The most physically irritating result of tear film moisture loss is an over-concentration of electrolyte (salt) and proteins in the aqueous layer. The results are itching, burning, eye-strain, fatigue and other symptoms. Lack of adequate tear film moisture is called, “dry eye,” “dry irritated eyes,” or “trucker’s dry eye.”

About the Mist

Moisture Is Water!

Creams and lotions are not moisture, even when labeled as “moisturizers”. Moisture can certainly contain substances other than water, but as water diffuses into moisture, the dissolved minerals, contaminants, and pollutants, can remain suspended in the minute moisture droplets.

The Amazing Tear Film.

The ocular tear film the covers the exposed portion of the eye and is only four or five microns thick. When eyes become dry, the ultimate cause is usually moisture depletion in the tear film’s middle layer. This depletion can total no more than two to five nanoliters but those barely measurable quantities can make a huge difference. Replace those nanoliters and your eyes will feel much more comfortable.

The Eye Drop Dilemma.

How do you get two to five nanoliters of into the aqueous layer? You could use a very tiny eyedropper but it would be needle thin and not practical for safety reasons. The typical commercial eyedropper is much larger and blunt-ended. Its drops, however, contain ten to 40 times the volume of the entire tear film. Drops that large flood the tear film and wash away the overlying lipid (oil) layer, whose purpose is to slow moisture evaporation from the aqueous layer. Disrupting the lipid layer can make dry eyes even dryer.

The Mist Solution.

The “Mist Solution,” discovered by Nature’s Tears EyeMist, utilizes an ultra-fine mist instead of drops. The micron-droplets penetrate the overlying lipid layer much like vinegar penetrates salad oil: the oil parts, the water enters and the oil then reseals.
Using the right water is critical. Water for the eyes must be sterile and free from contaminants and pollution. It must be mostly free from salt, heavy metals, artificial formulations and potentially allergenic preservatives. It must contain minute quantities of beneficial minerals such as silicon, calcium and potassium. And it must have a pH (acid/alkaline) balance that is compatible with the tear film’s pH.

A word about salt:

Everyone knows that tears are salty, but exactly how salty they are can be critical. When the aqueous layer loses water to evaporation, the salt remains. It is this over-concentration of salt that causes discomfort. Discomfort is alleviated only when the salt concentration is diluted to normal levels. Adding salt to dry irritated eyes (salt is an ingredient in nearly all artificial tear products), cannot not possibly dilute the aqueous layer’s salt.

Nature’s Tears EyeMist – the First and Only!

Nature’s Tears EyeMist is the first and only product that utilizes a diffusion of ultra-pure, pH compatible water, with a mild and beneficial mineral content, free from preservatives and formulated chemicals. The water is “Bio-Logic Aqua tissue-culture grade water.” This unique water is applied to the eyes – using specially designed vaporizing technology – as an ultra-fine mist, to supply needed moisture, in nanoliter quantities, directly to the tear film’s aqueous layer.
