China, the world’s biggest population (four times that of the U.S.), with the second-largest economy, is being ravaged by dry eye disease. So declared Sharon Kleyne recently on her nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. “Dry eye disease affects 17 percent of China’s population,” says Kleyne, “especially plaguing women and children.” Kleyne, also a leading expert on dry eye and body water evaporation, has been working to find a solution for China’s dry eye epidemic for more than two decades.
Kleyne’s new water research and technology discoveries have earned her the respect of scientists, physicians, educators and researchers throughout the world. Kleyne’s work and reputation have made it possible for her to engage with collaborators and partners in China to bring dry eye relief to millions. At the same time, Kleyne reveals, China is embracing Kleyne’s unique dry eye solution®, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.
China, Kleyne continues, is a population with vast disposable income and widespread ocular and dry eye issues. These issues are largely the result of pollution and other serious air quality problems. Kleyne points out that China has made progress in cleaning up its air pollution in the last decade, yet dry eye disease still afflicts approximately 237 million people every year. In some areas of China, the rate climbs as high as 31 percent. “The ophthalmology therapeutics market for treating dry eye disease and glaucoma in China is over U.S. 600 million with an annual growth rate of 5 percent,” says Kleyne. Kleyne also points out that doctors believe that virtually the entire Chinese population experiences occasional dry eye symptoms.
Kleyne, also the founder and director of research at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, conducts research showing that dry eye disease is a major tear deficiency disorder that causes discomfort, visual problems and instability of the tear film. This tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, becomes unstable due to over-evaporation. This over-evaporation is especially dangerous because it can lead to damage of the ocular surface. If the dry eye condition is not properly addressed, the end result can be blindness. Dry eye can also be triggered by alcohol, smoking, contact lens wear, exposure to artificial environments, wind, sun glare, chlorinated pool water, computer use, gaming and ocular and systemic medications.
Kleyne explains that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device. The device emits a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in the form of a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both, which is what China’s dry eyes need most. Kleyne also recommended this brief animation about the eye’s tear film:
“Tired, irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water,” says Kleyne, “which is what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continues, “but they can become addictive and make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops trap water on the eye’s tear film; they do not supplement and replenish the lost moisture of the tear film. As users of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® have discovered, millions of Chinese citizens are finding unprecedented dry eye relief with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.
