"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."

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.
"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"
