What do stress, anxiety and climate change have to do with the eyes? Everything, says Sharon Kleyne, founder and research director of Bio Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® in Grants Pass, Oregon and the host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and produced by Rose Hong, founder and director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C.
“Do dry eyes perhaps cause stress and anxiety?” Kleyne asks talk radio guest Ula Jurkunas, M.D. and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.
“Absolutely,” Jurkunas replies. “Where the tear film, cornea and the air meet,” Jurkunas continues, “it is important to supplement with pure water, especially when we know that we are dealing with excessive pollution in our environment.”
Kleyne also teaches the primacy of pure water supplementation for loss of body water due to evaporation. “When a baby exits the womb and first opens its eyes, exposure to the air prompts the beginning of a lifelong process of evaporation. That is why I invented Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, which supplements the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water, with 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water.” Delivered as a patented micron-size mist, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is not as heavy as traditional eye drops and so should be used first in the eye for maximum absorption. “Remember,” adds Kleyne, “that eye drops only seal in existing water; they do not supplement or replenish water lost to evaporation.”
Jurkunas, a clinician scientist who studies corneal disorders, also shares recent technology that allows corneal stem cells to be grown in cultures and in turn replace depleted stem cells. “The eye is almost transparent,” says Jurkunas, “so we can really see what is going on inside the eye. That is why it is so exciting to be able to develop stem cell therapies for regenerative medicine.”
Also joining Kleyne on the program is DeWayne Cecil, Ph.D., Western Region Climate Services Director NOAA. Cecil shares alarming news about budget cuts that will diminish our ability to study weather and changes in climate. This diminished capacity will in turn limit our ability to respond to climate and weather emergencies. “The world is drying out,” Cecil and Kleyne agree, “and budget cuts are not helpful.”
