Post Lasik, Watery Dry Eyes - Success Story from TheraLife

Post LASIK, Watery Dry Eyes - Success Story from TheraLife

This is my personal story.  I hope you find it useful.   

"I am a chronic dry-eye sufferer who had LASIK surgery. I have the "Watery" type of Dry Eye where tears flow down my cheek constantly.

As I approached 40 I began to suffer from watering eyes. As a contact lens wearer since the age of 14, I could no longer tolerate the contact lenses and with the watery eyes, I couldn't see or function normally through the day.

I investigated having Lasik surgery. Due to the severity of my prescription (11.5 in my left eye and 11.75 in my right eye) along with large pupil dilation and a thin cornea, I was turned down by most of the prominent eye surgeons in my area. Not willing to go back to glasses, I was finally able to find a surgeon who gave me the option of "E-Lasik" surgery. (Remember, this was over 10 years ago, and Lasik surgery techniques have come a long way). It was much more complicated than normal lasik and the risk of even drier eyes was a possibility.

The surgery was extremely successful. I now have 20/50 vision, but it is such that I can function without glasses for the most part. Now for the dry eyes: I used the drops recommended by the surgeon, but still had watery eyes, extreme glare at night (I was told this would happen due to my pupil dilation) and sometimes pain in my eyes in the morning upon waking.

I was certain that I could find a supplement that would help. I tried many drops and supplements from health food stores but nothing seemed to help. I searched until I found Theralife Eye on the internet. It has improved my night vision, my watery eyes and lessened the pain that I experienced in the morning. I started with 8 capsules per day and now maintain on 4 per day. I recently have added the Fish oil (1-2 per day) and have had even more relief.

I would recommend Theralife Eye products as a natural, safe way to manage chronic dry eye. I'm so glad that I found Theralife.

Survival Tips for Sjogren's Syndrome-TheraLife

Survival Tips for Sjogrern's Syndrome

Sjogren's syndrome is one of the most prevalent autoimmune disorders. some 4-6 million people have this disorder, mostly women, but also men. Affects people of all ages and races. Here are some helpful tips that we hope you find useful.

Dry Eye Survival Tips

  • Use warm compress and eyelid cleansers or baby shampoo on a warm washcloth to reduce blepharitis, a common condition in Sjögren’s that causes chronic inflammation of the eyelids and eyelid margins. Do this often to reduce discomfort
  • You may need a prescription antibiotic or steroid drops to reduce inflammation for blepharitis..
  • Reduce light sensitivity- wearing sunglasses- draw window shades, avoid fluorescence lights.
  • Avoid applying anything to the eyelids that can irritate your dry eye; products placed on the eyelid will get into the tear film.
  • Avoid over use of eye drops – makes your eyes drier over time. Use TheraLife Eye instead – see below
  • For night time dry eyes, take 4 capsules of TheraLife Autoimmune Dry Eye right before bedtime. No blurry vision and mess compare to eye gels.
  • Try moisture chamber goggles, especially at night to prevent moisture evaporation and offer protection from air currents.
  • Keep the upper and lower eyelids free of facial creams at bedtime; they can enter the eye and cause irritation.
  • For allergies use Claritin “Loratadine”- a mast cell stabilizer anti-histamine which is gentler than “Diphenhydramine HCl” (Benedryl or Sudafed). It does not make your eyes as dry. Do not use Claritin D

Dry Mouth Survival Tips - Reduce inflammation

  • Eat soft, moist foods - no pasta, bread or sugar
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals to stimulate saliva flow.
  • Avoid salty, acidic or spicy foods and carbonated drinks that may be painful on your dry mouth or interfere with digestion. 
  • Help prevent dental decay by using oral products containing the sweetner xylitol.
  • For dry mouth, increase your intake of daily liquid.
  • Avoid mouthwashes and rinses that contain alcohol or witch hazel. These ingredients can aggravate oral dryness and burning.
  • Chew sugar-free gum or suck on hard diabetic or sugar-free candies to help increase saliva.
  • Apply vitamin E oil or moisturizing gels to dry or sore parts of the mouth or tongue for long-lasting relief. Use the liquid oil or punch holes in vitamin capsules.

 TheraLife Success Story
Sjogrens Dry Eye/Dry Mouth:
I was diagnosed with sjogrens syndrome 4 years ago. I tried everything my doctor suggested. Nothing really worked for me. Then a co-worker reccomended Theralife. I called and they were so helpful in getting me started and are very knowledgable too. After about 2 months, my eyes had improved so much. My dry mouth has improved as well. I work in a casino where the air is VERY VERY dry and without Theralife, I don't know what i would do. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product.

Anxiety and Depression Linked to Dry Eye Syndrome

Anxiety and Depression Linked to Dry Eye Syndrome

Anxiety can lead to a wide range of clinical symptoms, of which dry eye is one.

This blog is to encourage eye doctors to be aware that Dry Eye Disease has significant impact on people's quality of life.

Very often, we see people who has Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome who also has signs of depression and often on anti-depressants.  Interviewing these patients often reveal that the constant pain, discomfort of dry eye symptoms is leading them to depression.

On the other hand, it has been well documented that patients who have a high level of anxiety and depression can lead to dry eyes due to bodily fluids being diverted away from the eyes to other organs.
Often this correlation between Dry Eye Syndrome causing depression and anxiety is being ignored, and yet it is an important factor in being able to treat Dry Eye Syndrome successfully.

Here is a new clinical study that documented the correlation between people with Dry Eye Syndrome developing depression and anxiety- Published in “Cornea”  February 2012. at this link:

Wen, et al conclude:  "DES is frequent in patients with depressive and anxiety disorders, especially patients who are older, have longer duration of psychiatric disorder, and use an SSRI. Psychiatric disorders and use of antidepressants should be considered in the differential diagnosis of DES
This study aimed to determine whether patients with dry eye syndrome [DES] have more symptoms of anxiety and depression than controls without DES".

This study also concluded that – Anxiety and depression are correlated with Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) . DES is an important public health problem that merits increased attention and research.


1. Simple Daily Exercise-

Suggest to the patient to use short meditation measure to calm down- e.g. sitting in a quiet room with low light, feet planted on the ground, close eyes and start counting from one.  Keep all distracting thoughts out of mind, focus only on counting.  If interfering thoughts come into play, start counting from one again.  Practice this every day until you can count numbers up to 10 minutes.  The result is – after 10 minutes, the patient feels refreshed, less anxious.

2. Practice yoga – with or without an instructor. 

3. Meditation- simply sit in a comfortable chair, place your feet on the ground, your hand in your lap, close your eyes and count your breath.  Keep all thoughts out of your mind.  Be present, be focused and be quiet.  Count your breath to 12 without any thoughts coming to your mind.  You can practice this anywhere. 


A.   TheraLife Eye is formulated to increase micro-circulation and deliver more blood and nutrients to the eye – allowing the tear secretion glands to attain normal cell functions intracellularly.  Depression and anxiety can be adverted once dry eye syndrome is under control.

B. TheraLife Fatigue- formulated to deliver more oxygen to the brain to void fatigue, stress, better sleep at night.  The all natural choice without the use of stimulants like caffeine.

Grave's Disease Dry Eyes - Relief using TheraLife

Grave's Disease Dry Eyes- Relief using TheraLife

This is a personal story-Grave’s Disease Thyroid Dry Eyes- Relief by TheraLife Eye

I am a 48 year old woman who was diagnosed with Graves Disease 5 years ago.  Graves’s disease tends to attack the thyroid gland as well as the eyes.  My eye problem started about 4 years ago with severe dryness.  I went to many doctors with NO Success!!! They only suggested I continue to put eye drops and ointments in my eyes.  This actually exacerbated my problem. I became very desperate, and then found TheraLife on the internet.  I found relief within a few weeks and have been on a dose of 2-4 pills ever since.  I DO NOT use ANY eye drops or ointments anymore. The supplements totally keep my dry eye problem under control. Once in awhile, I need to take 6-8 capsules, but after a couple of weeks, I usually can go back to about 4.  I am extremely happy and grateful for finding TheraLife.

M. S., San Antonio, Texas

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder that results in overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). It is caused by an abnormal immune system response which prompts the thyroid gland to produce too much thyroid hormone. Graves’ disease is most common in women over age 20. However, the disorder may occur at any age and may affect men as well

Dry Eyes and Graves’ Disease

Dry eye syndrome is very common amongst people with Graves’ disease. It is also called “thyroid eye disease”.
Thyroid eye disease is known to go through varying degrees of severity, and it can go into periods of remission. When it has been inactive for a period of around a half a year, it’s less likely to recur.

Dry Eye Symptoms in Graves’ Disease

  • In addition to the typical dry eye symptoms of dry, irritated, gritty, light sensitivity. 
  • Swelling in the orbital tissues which causes the eye to be pushed forward — referred to as exophthalmos — which can make thyroid eye disease sufferers appear to have a wide-eyed or bulging stare.
  • Bloodshot appearance to eyes
  • Double vision (diplopia)
  • Impaired vision

Treatments for Dry Eyes in Graves’ Disease

Your clear choice is TheraLife® Autoimmune. Our formula restores both tear volume and tear thickness – producing balanced sustainable tears for maximum comfort.
In milder cases of thyroid eye disease, typical treatments for dry eye syndrome work well. These include but are not limited to:
  • TheraLife® Eye Autoimmune
  • Wrap-around sunglasses to avoid wind and glare
  • Room humidifiers for better comfort
  • Prism lenses in eye glasses to reduce double vision.
  • Short course of Prednisone to address eye swelling and redness

The Issue of Radioactive Iodine Treatment (RAI) for Graves’ Disease

Radioactive Iodine (RAI) treatment is the preferred treatment in the U.S. for Graves’ disease and its resulting hyperthyroidism. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, however, radioiodine therapy for Graves’ hyperthyroidism is more likely to apparently cause or worsen thyroid eye disease than is anti-thyroid drug therapy. This worsening can be temporary however, and may in some cases be prevented by use of the steroid prednisone.

Dry Eye Syndrome and It's Impact on the Workplace

Dry Eye Syndrome and It's Impact on the Workplace

Dry eye syndrome is a multifactorial condition characterized by an unstable tear film resulting in symptoms of eye discomfort and visual disturbances. Quality of life studies have shown that dry eye syndrome has the potential to have a detrimental impact on patients’ daily living activities, with a significant proportion of people self-treating with over-the-counter (OTC) dry eye products, especially eye drops. What is not well documented is how dry eye syndrome influences the work place.

New Research Study Shows Impact of Dry Eyes on the Workplace - Loss of Productivity.

Here is an abstract from this clinical study.  
The purpose of this non-interventional, cross sectional, prospective study was to assess the effect of dry eye disease on work productivity and performance of non–work-related activities, and people's satisfaction with OTC dry eye treatments. The study included 158 consecutive symptomatic dry eye patients at a number of clinical centers who were asked to complete Work Productivity and Activity Impairment and Ocular SurfaceDisease Index  questionnaires and undergo standard dry eye diagnostic testing (Schirmer, tear break up time, corneal and conjunctival staining). Use of OTC dry eye medication, and satisfaction with OTC medication and symptom relief were also assessed.
The results indicate that dry eye syndrome did not contribute to absenteeism but did negatively affect work productivity and non-job related daily activities. The negative workplace performance effect experienced by people with dry eyes was significant (approximately 29%) and correlated with their self-assessment of dry eye symptoms but not clinical assessment. These results reinforce personal clinical experience that people with dry eyes tend to present with symptoms with few clinical signs to explain the symptoms.  Another words tests for dry eyes were often negative.  

The study did not address the number of people with dry eyes having to leave their jobs due to dry eyes.

The study didn't specifically address which occupations were most likely to be affected, but intuitively those jobs that require intensive computer usage in air-conditioned/heated work-spaces would be most likely. A majority of the study participants were utilizing OTC dry eye products and interestingly their opinion of the effectiveness of such products was more positive than their reported assessment of dry eye relief provided by the products.  Another words, people with dry eyes want to believe over the counter eye drops will work, but the actual dry eye relief by using eye drops was low.  

This is consistent with TheraLife 's assessment that for a high percentage of dry eyes, eye drops don't work.

This study was pubulished in the July issue of Ocular Surface News

Risk Factors for Developing Dry Eye Syndrome


Risk Factor for the Developing Dry Eye Syndrome

We all know the discomfort and often how life changing chronic dry eye syndromes can be.
You tried everything, drops, punctal plugs, prescription eye drops, nothing seems to help.  Let's see if you have these risk factors that causes dry eyes. 

1. Women in maturity:

Menopause women who receive hormone replacement therapy are at higher risk. Post menopausal women who use hormone replacement, especially estrogen, have a higher prevalence of dry eye syndrome compared with those who have never used hormone replacement therapy. In general both menopausal and post menopausal women tend to have dry eye symptoms; this is because hormone balance is important in tear production.

2. Arthritis and smoking

3. Medications -

Medications such as diuretics (to lower high blood pressure) , antidepressants, antihistamines, anticholinergics, and systemic retinoids like Accutane can increase the risk of developing dry eye syndrome

4. Environmental factors,

Such as reduced humidity and increased wind, drafts, air conditioning, or heating may worsen the ocular discomfort of patients with dry eye. Exogenous irritants and allergens, although not believed to be causative of dry eye, can certainly increase the symptoms of dry eyes in people, as can extended visual tasking during computer use, television watching, and prolonged reading.

5. LASIK or PRK Surgery:

Following refractive surgery such as laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) or photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), patients for several months may experience significant dry eye due to the severing of the corneal nerves during surgery.

6. Systemic Diseases

Sjogrens, Blepharitis, Lymphoma, Viral Infections, AIDS …

Dry eye-associated systemic diseases include Sjögren's syndrome, where inflammation of the lacrimal gland leads to tear-production deficiency, and rosacea, which is associated with posterior blepharitis with increased tear evaporation. Aqueous tear deficiency may develop in systemic pathologies such as lymphoma, sarcoidosis, hemochromatosis, and amyloidosis. Dry eye may likewise develop in patients with systemic viral infections and AIDS. Lacrimal gland swelling, dry eye, and Sjögren’s syndrome have been associated with Epstein-Barr virus infections15 and decreased tear production, reduced tear volume, and reduced tear lactoferrin concentrations have been seen in patients with hepatitis C. Neuromuscular disorders that affect the patient’s blink (e.g., Parkinson disease, Bell palsy) can lead to dry eye syndrome as can localized findings such as eyelid malposition, lagophthalmos, and blepharitis.

7. Cancer Treatments

Radiation, Transplantation, localized trauma, including orbital surgery, radiation, and injury, may also cause dry eye.
You can see from all the research into the risk factors of dry eye disease that we need to go beyond just dispensing some artificial tear to people with dry eyes.  Lifestyle can have a major impact in  underlying issues our patients may have. It is the first step to insure success in DED treatment.

New Treatment for Sjogren's Disease and Dry Eyes

New Treatment for Sjogren's Disease and Dry Eyes

Sjogren's Syndrome and Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome- Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

Sjogren’s syndrome is a particular form of autoimmune disease where one’s body defense mechanism (immune system) attacks one’s own tissue or organs.  In the case of Sjogren’s syndrome, it attaches the organs that produce moisture (mucous membranes).  The most common symptoms are dry eye and dry mouth.  It can also affect other organs such as throat, lungs, kidney, liver, pancreas, central nervous system, gastrointestinal systems, joints, and blood vessels. 

Other autoimmune diseases can also result in chronic dry eye including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Grave’s Disease, Chrone’s Disease, and Fibromyalgia.  Diagnosis for Sjorgren’s syndrome can be difficult due to similarities of disease symptoms.

Dry Eyes Challenges in Sjogren's Disease

For many, Sjogren’s syndrome related dry eye often results in eye ulcers, corneal abrasion, extreme fatigue and a great deal of pain.  Some people with Sjögren's syndrome also have other autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis, mixed connective tissue disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and chronic autoimmune hepatitis..  It is a debilitating disease for as many as 4 million Americans.  Most Sjorgren’s patients are women.

Conventional Treatment for Sjogren's

Conventional therapy for Sjorgren’s chronic dry eye often includes eye drops – which make dry eye worse.  Prescription drugs often include steroids which cannot be used continuously over long periods of time due to its toxic effects to liver and kidney.  

How TheraLife Autoimmune Formula Works

TheraLife Autoimmune Formula is a natural way to provide relief for both chronic dry eye and Sjorgren’s Syndrome.  It works by:

1. Intracellular stimulation of tear glands (mybomian, lacrimal) to promote one’s glands to secret its own tears naturally and overcome issues with poor micro-circulation and membrane permeability. This is the key factor in Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome.

2.  Natural ingredients that act as an immune suppressant (immune modulator)

3.  Improve performance, endurance and energy levels.
4. No side effects of prescription drugs
5. Provides continuous daily support.
